Description


Madame Butterfly by John Luther Long

The wonderful, but tragic love story of Cho-Cho-San, a Japanese Geisha and the American Navy officer has inspired Puccini to write one of his most beautiful operas and has been turned into numerous movies for the large and the small screen alike. The original book by John Luther Long is now here, entertaining readers and making them contemplate about the nature of true love.

The story of Madame Butterfly is not a very difficult one. There is no mystery, there are no unexpected turns. Still, it is one of the most fascinating love stories of our times. The beautiful and provincial Japanese girl is led to believe that the navy officer she serves is truly in love with. The officer than leaves, promising her to return and the girl awaits the love of his life to come back to her. He does return indeed, with an American wife, just to meet his Japanese son.

The story is dramatic enough in itself, but it is not only the sadness of it that makes Madame Butterfly such an interesting read. The writer depicts more than just a love story – he depicts two different cultures through the prism of a soldier and of a woman. Through the relationship of the two, the book provides insight into both cultures and also presents how they mingle and change each other. The ending is different from the way the opera version ends, so if you are interested in original versions and you are curious about the differences, Long’s book will surely be to your liking
