The plot looks very simple. One day he was very surprised. Nielsen felt very unusual when he saw outside the window, but I could not understand why. When he took a walk he felt "an empty mood", "a strange feeling", "a weak pain on the heart", "a little sound in the throat".

Nielsen reflecting that he did not appreciate the physical world around him. He is far from nature, the birds are singing, Japanese quinters are even meeting his neighbors - throw him to the base. Nielsen does not admit his confusion about others around him. He talked to Mr. Tandrum of the neighbor, but he was nervous about talking with Nilsson. The authors concluded that Nielsen probably Tandrum - he seems like Nielsen has "holes" in his mind.
Frankly, this means that there is something missing from his personality. He never comes in contact with others, and he is far away from the physical world. At the moment of self recognition, [Nielsen] thought Mr. Tandram seemed a bit stupid as if he saw himself Soon, Nelson hid inside his house, left the whole world, and later entered the interior later we can expect in the city where he spent time.
He is not close to understanding what nature and his body is about to tell him. At first glance, Galsworthy's "The Japanese Quince" looks simple, but the simplicity of the surface of this story is deceiving. Nielsen, a wealthy businessman, left the garden square near his house on a beautiful spring day. In his reconsideration in the spring, in addition to his name he met and talked with indifferent neighbors, he became self-conscious and returned to his house.
This summary does not account for Nielsen's interest in his mind, but while Japanese papaya and blackbirds are at the center of the linearity and gravity of the story, this can stimulate his walk, It is a reasonable summary of what is still happening. Noteworthy of the story of Galsworthy 's obviously not the originality of his conspiracy, the depth of his depiction, he is neither O. Henry nor James Joyce.
Since the first publication of the A Motley series in , John Galsworthy's "The Japanese Quince" is highly appreciated by readers in its moving but gentle story. This story tells the story of Mr. Nielsen's life, which was immediately transferred by visual, sound and smell early in the morning.
Nielsen was fascinated by the natural beauty and was relieved for a while from his highly ordered and orderly life. Galsworthy was born in wealth, wrote what he knew and spent his life in the middle class class in Victorian England. The empty life of the character of his aristocrat became the basis of the main tragedy of his work.
He once said that "Japanese papaya" is an attempt to "create anxiety among readers, and from time to time we will fight ourselves. It is worth noting that Galsworthy himself recognizes that he and two men living in "Japanese papaya" fight against encountering and resisting their world. Galsworthy, born in a wealthy family in Surrey, England in , grew up at home with many servants and gardeners and his friends who grew up in Galsworthy playing cricket, croquet and tennis.
Most of them are as privileged as he. When he was educated at Haro and Oxford, his circle of friends mainly included other people in his class. He is always "very elegant", it is expressed as "stuffed toy shirt", and lives in "swelling, selfish world" of "attention to rules and appearance".
Galsworthy met a cousin's wife a little while away from the young traditional life, fell in love later when I came down in love. The plot looks very simple One day he was very surprised. He is far from nature, the birds are singing, Japanese quinters are even meeting his neighbors - throw him to the base Nielsen does not admit his confusion about others around him.

The Japanese Quince
As Mr. Nilson, well known in the City, opened the window of his dressing-room on Campden Hill, he experienced a peculiar sweetish sensation in the back of his throat, and a feeling of emptiness just under his fifth rib. Hooking the window back, he noticed that a little tree in the Square Gardens had come out in blossom, and that the thermometer stood at sixty. Resuming some meditations on the price of Tintos, he took up an ivory-backed hand-glass and scrutinised his face. His firm, well-coloured cheeks, with their neat brown moustaches, and his round, well-opened, clear grey eyes, wore a reassuring appearance of good health. Putting on his black frock coat, he went downstairs.
