Mishima Yukio, the world-renowned Japanese writer in the modern times, has been nominated by the Nobel Prize for two times. In the meanwhile, his works are popular with the readers at home and abroad. He is one of the Japanese writers whose works are translated into other languages at most in the modern times. Mishima Yukio’s peculiar mental structure, cruelty and paradox in the works are mostly focused, which has close connection with the cultural paradigm stimulated by his cultural nationalism. The cultural paradigm was showed specifically and elucidated systematically by Mishima Yukio in his book called A Theory of Cultural Defense. The Sea of Fertility, a hyper novel and his swan song, was based on the literature practice of the cultural paradigm, which promotes the ultimate image of Mishima Yukio’s cultural paradigm.
