The Japanese text reads: Henry Holt and Company, , In other words, Kigin pays attention to the structure of the manuscripts, whereas for Bansai the manuscripts are distinguished by extratextual characteristics and related to their transmission. Kigin, however, seems interested in the texts used by his predecessors. He laments the lack of an authorized text and says that he utilized two manuscripts for his commentary precisely because they contained postscripts.
In other words, he regards postscripts as markers of authority. Iwanami Shoten, , Mostow, Pictures of the Heart: In short, Kigin claims that he relied heavily on the Sankanbon text. University of California, Berkeley, , Why did they not refer to it? Textual evidence shows that Bansai and Kigin consulted the Keian hanpon, yet neither notes this in his commentary. See also Kishigami Shinji et al.
Rather, each of the seventeenth-century manuscripts represents a compilation of selections from manuscripts across textual lineages. They avoided selecting a single text over the other available options, but produced their own primary text. All of the major scholarly commentators of the early-modern period appropriated the Keian hanpon which was a printed version, rather than using manuscript copies. The modern annotated editions of The Pillow Book contain over three hundred sections. How did seventeenth-century scholars divide the text? What were the effects of such divisions?
How did such division influence the understanding of the text and the perception of the work as a whole? They start immediately after the end of a section, thus forming a patchwork with the main text and editorial notes, the borderline of which is often blurred Figure 1. To make the text even more consistent, Bansai reordered some of the passages, grouping them into thematically related units.
Soai Daigaku, , The general meaning omomuki of the whole section expressed through the heading kotogoto naru mono can be seen in the twelve subsections that delineate various aspects. Above all, the first section tells about differences in language. He tries to intuit what the logical connection may be between the different passages within the block of text he made into a section. The speech of men and of women. The common people always tend to add extra syllables to their words. It refers to things that are not the same but are interchangeable. Also, things that are insufficient and unsophisticated.
Also, things that are unpredictable and suspicious. Bansai delineates the broad spectrum of meanings of the phrase kotogoto naru mono and tries to fit each subsection within this long Section Four of his commentary into the extensive category of kotogoto naru mono. After each subsection he comments on its linkage to the whole section.
In some cases the links seem plausible, whereas in others Bansai justifies his reorganization of the text in an evasive way. He notes that this Ivan Morris, 5. Another example of a logical link is Subsection Eleven. The subsection opens with the episode about the move of Teishi and her entourage into the residence of Taira no Narimasa. He stresses that the episode teaches that one should not forget proper manners even when one becomes accustomed to a certain situation narete rei wo wasurenu kokoro wo oshietari. There Narimasa becomes a laughing stock of the women.
However, he does not explain which meaning of kotogoto naru mono applies to this episode but rather leaves it to the reader to decide. Having offered his view about the linkages of each subsection to the whole section, Bansai concludes by underscoring not only the organizational principle of the text but also the depth of its meaning as a series of interrelated episodes. For example, his comment after the latter reads: In the previous section, mountains that function as associated words yose in poetry Ibid.
This section includes peaks that do not appear in poems. Together with the previous section, it should be regarded as expressing contrasting meanings. Through a reorganization of the text within sections and the order in which they appear, Bansai constructs a work in which various forms of knowledge are catalogued into categories, which themselves are offered to the reader in a logical order. As will be discussed later, this approach made The Pillow Book amenable to categorization as a zuihitsu, the genre used by scholars in China and Chinesestudies scholars in Japan to encapsulate various kinds of knowledge.
In his preface, Bansai laments that The Pillow Book has been underappreciated, despite it being on par with the Ise and the Genji. It consists of three books. Is it even slightly inferior to Ise, Yamato, Genji, Sagoromo, etc.? It is even less inferior to others such as Taketori, Tsutsumi, and Hamamatsu. However the people who appreciate it are probably only one-tenth of those who [praise] the Ise [and] the Genji.
It is shameful and regrettable. But there is a reason behind this, too. Moreover, Bansai does not describe the merits of the text itself, except for hailing the work as primarily didactic. Such an image of the author further emphasizes the value of the work. Unlike Bansai, who explains why each of the episodes is included in the respective section, Kigin stresses the unrelated nature of the passages and sets them apart as independent of each other. The same section of the text that Bansai split into twelve subsections, Kigin treats as twelve independent sections.
This is again an appeal to the idea of zuihitsu but understood differently from Bansai. It is close to the writing of later kokugaku scholars, which will be also discussed later. Kigin does not divide the text into sections but emphasizes the disconnected nature of the topics around which passages are centred. Kigin underscores the value of The Pillow Book by commenting on its style and constructing it as equal to Genji monogatari.
The style of the work, the elegant language, and the depth of meaning, although [I stop my praise here], are exceptional.

In addition, by considering Sei together with other Heian women as recorded in these texts, he emphasizes her image as a woman poet. Moreover, Kigin emphasizes the primacy of The Pillow Book by presenting it as equal in quality to the Genji and, unlike Bansai, does not comment on its marginalized position. A few years later Kigin produced another work entitled Iwatsutsuji Wild Azaleas, through which he proposed a literary tradition of poetry related to male-male eroticism.
See Muromatsu et al. None of these versions followed one particular textual line; each was an amalgam of textual lineages in accordance with the preferences of the editor. It was not until that a complete commentary of The Pillow Book based entirely on a single textual line was produced. Unlike the Edo-period scholars, however, Japanese scholars since the s have based their commentaries on the work on a single manuscript while supplementing the missing parts with manuscripts within the same textual lineage.
The seventeenth-century commentators viewed the title of the work as central in the debate about the nature of the text. He interprets the title in two different ways. However, structurally, since this work first offers a concise statement whose meaning kokoro later is revealed in depth, it is equal to makura kotoba in poetry.
Accordingly, he regarded The Pillow Book as informal writing based on actual experience. The problem they faced was how to classify the work. Formless in Form, What did zuihitsu mean in the eighteenth century? Jung-chai sui-pi , his writing contained observations on various topics, including literature, medicine, and astronomy. As the scholar of Edo-period literature Nakamura Yukihiko has observed, in the early seventeenth century zuihitsu was a literary form employed primarily by Japanese scholars of Chance, Formless in Form, In the eighteenth century this form of writing was adopted by kokugaku scholars and gesaku writers.
In later centuries, only Genji monogatari was assessed highly and works like Eiga monogatari were not read widely. However, since it is Ibid. This includes matters in which one is quite well versed, as well as shallow musings that one simply feels it would be a shame to forget. Unable to capture things in a subtle and delicate style, one is likely to include awkward or tasteless things that make it disappointing. But because a zuihitsu is not embellished, character, ability, and learning show, making it all the more interesting. See Chance, Formless in Form, He underscores the importance of Ibid.
His focus, however, is on emotions and interactions between people, rather than moral discourses influenced by Buddhism and Confucianism. The category of zuihitsu continued to expand in the twentieth century. These attributes are influenced by the understanding of the zuihitsu in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Scholars in the seventeenth century faced the challenge of reconstructing the text and deciding on its textual organization. Furthermore, Bansai and Kigin rearranged the text and presented The Pillow Book as a collection of lists and a collection of random jottings respectively. Although these approaches to textual organization developed in contrast to each other, they were later amalgamated into the concept of zuihitsu.
Knowledge, Status, and Identity 2. From the mideighteenth to the early nineteenth centuries, following the rise in readership and scholarly approaches, numerous parodies and adaptations of the text were produced and marketed for women. The first section of this chapter considers the earliest extant erotic rewriting of The Pillow Book and the gender ideology it conveys.
I examine the following texts: Before analyzing the texts themselves, it is necessary to briefly consider the problem of terminology and how to classify or characterize these texts. Are they parody, travesty, caricature, pastiche, transformation, or imitation? University of Nebraska Press, Genette makes a rigid delineation of the subgenres that are included in parody and draws the following categories: Genette observes that hypertexts are created through a process of transformation: Does it shift when parody is examined outside its original context?
In other words, a work becomes parodic when a reader successfully decodes the message encoded by the narrator and takes into account the specific context of production. Methuen, , Routledge, , 4. Essays on Audience and Interpretation, sous la d. Numerous erotic images were produced during the late seventeenth century. Routledge, , The following three poems illustrate the confusion triggered by the similarity of the appellations. In referencing blinds, the author alludes to the most famous episode in The Pillow Book.
But this also evokes the image of tissues used to wipe away bodily fluids after sexual activity. The oil abura in the second poem refers to lamp oil used when reading at night, but also to lubricating oil for enhancing sexual intercourse. Lists composed during such poetry contests were compiled in collections for later reference.
This vast body of informational texts burgeoned in the era of commercial printing. Social knowledge was classified and transmitted through lists, a format that enabled equal access to a wide audience encompassing various levels of literacy. University of California Press, , Berry examines education as one example of information that became widely accessible to anyone with enough time and money.
As lists, they were a style of knowledge transmission familiar to those who had read other informational texts. The work imitates the style of the eleventh-century work, specifically its lists, and does not play upon the content of the source text. How did this shift in setting and anticipated readership influence the content of the Inu makura? Inu makura comments on the three genders, but among the three, wakashu receive the most attention.
The work contains nineteen references to wakashu, followed by twelve references to women, and only five to adult men. This focus on the wakashu is not unique to Inu makura. This literary fascination with wakashu can be traced to earlier medieval narratives, later categorized as chigo monogatari acolyte tales , that revolve around love affairs between priests and boys. Mostow et al Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press, , , Love Stories or Buddhist Sermons? As a senior partner, the nenja acted as a role model and source of admiration and respect for the adolescent boy, who had embarked on training that would later provide him membership in the world of adult men.
The relationship between the nenja and wakashu were described as being just as strong as those between a parent and a child. It presents wakashu as objects of desire and classifies and evaluates their behaviour. Duke University Press, , When he was involved in a heterosexual relationship, however, he often assumed an active role. In addition, monogamy is construed as central for the ideal wakashu. If the focus is on wakashu, how are women and men represented? This becomes evident from the headings of the lists. The only positive reference among the twelve examples that discuss women is the statement that comments on them as mothers to sons: Schalow has noted that topics related to human experience were important for the composition of comic linked verses.
Sexuality and gender were central among them, and in some haikai schools the incorporation of perspectives of male-male eroticism was considered a prerequisite for skillful poets. Rather, by imitating the classical style of The Pillow Book, the producers of Inu makura showed knowledge of canonical literary sources. Such literature provided a view into the pleasure quarters for those who could not afford to visit, while also educating those who frequented them in proper comportment.
These works targeted an elite audience, specifically samurai and wealthy merchants who were regular customers in the pleasure quarter of Yoshiwara, as well as high-ranking courtesans. Saiken consisted of intricate maps of the pleasure quarters that offered information about the names of the brothels and the courtesans associated with them, organized according to rank. The genre of sharebon typically represented two archetypes: Scott Miller has defined it.
What was the function of satire in works depicting the pleasure quarters? In her study of saiken and sharebon, Marcia Yonemoto shows that the literature about the pleasure districts was seen as subversive. She asserts that these texts appropriated Ibid.
These works project a society in which notions such as status and class as constructed by the shogunate dissolve and new identities and hierarchies emerge. Indeed, the pleasure quarters allowed for an escape from a world in which class and identity were fixed for life. Published in Kyoto in , the work comments on various pleasure quarters throughout the country. As I fell asleep, a strange old woman appeared. See Mostow, Pictures of the Heart, When I lifted the pillow, I was charmed by the purple dawn that had arrived so soon.
Thinking that this, too, was probably a lie coming true, I revisited my dream. When I opened the book, it was certainly written, but there was no set title.
Should I discard it? The phrase tsurezure also recalls both The Pillow Book and Tsurezuregusa. The narrator tells readers that as he was thinking of various pleasure quarters, an old woman appeared before him. The depiction of the woman as a writer who served in the court alludes to Heian-period woman writers.
Her depiction as an experienced courtesan reveals a perception of female court attendants from the past as promiscuous women. Thus, the Preface transforms the imperial court into a pleasure quarter and female attendants into prostitutes. The Pillow Book describes various aspects of the life at court and likewise this works portrays life within the pleasure quarters. In the collection of Lady Ise it says: The text has omitted the headnote to the poem which reads: Again, this list transforms the collection of pools into one that focuses on courtesans and money.
The poem also appears in the Gunsho ruiju version of the Ise shu. It is a collection of both mono-type and wa-type lists. It integrates lists that appear in The Pillow Book by borrowing not only their heading but also citing directly from them. Thus the work can be seen as a pastiche of various texts adapted to the context of the eighteenth-century pleasure quarters.
What is the role of these subtexts within the narrative? Let us examine one famous scene from The Pillow Book in greater detail. They lavished affection on them. This sudden transformation is entertaining for the reader, but it also effectively rewrites the Pillow Book episode into a commentary related to courtesans. The episode about a beloved son made into a priest that appears among the first sections in The Pillow Book has also been incorporated into this eighteenth-century text.
The eighteenth-century reworking of the episode reads: However, although it has been widely said that it is a promising thing as she may marry up, it is unfortunate precisely because she is regarded as mere merchandise for sale. The training period is extremely toilsome, and they say her sleep is restless. Needless to say, it seems irksome when she is transferred to another brothel. The narrator shows sympathy for young girls sold into prostitution by revealing the difficulty of their lives within brothels. The opening of the section brings The Pillow Book to mind in referencing a parent and child, but then the topic quickly changes, creating a sense of surprise and amusement for the reader.
A Translation of Saigyo Monogatari. In a dream he is instructed to visit a courtesan at Murotsu, which is the location of the first pleasure quarter in Japan. The courtesan then transforms into Fugen and before long dies. Moreover, the agency granted to the female entertainers constructs them as superior to the monks, and this power relation is projected onto the institutions each of them represents, that is, the pleasure quarters and Buddhist clergy. Bernard Faure, The Power of Denial: Buddhism, Purity, and Gender Princeton, N. Princeton University Press, , ; Janet R.
Goodwin, Selling Songs and Smiles: Sekai Bunkasha, , When her writing was printed [was made into a woodblock print], these stories about the pleasure quarters were seen as vulgar, thus this single volume was omitted and not included within her book. The current story regards the form [of The Pillow Book] as important and ignores its content, and eventually there is no one who knows what the omitted volume was.
Yet, even a woman of no low birth might be caught in the ups and downs of this world and submerged into prostitution. Once there, she becomes involved and accustomed to it before she knows it, and it is unfortunate that soon her vulgar feelings are revealed.
The preface tells readers that this work was originally written by Sei, but was omitted because of its sexual content. Because of its sexual content, this booklet by Sei was not included in her Pillow Book. However, the preface asserts the value of the work by stressing the fact that it is instructive reading for courtesans. This selection of historical works at the beginning of the text signals a narrative grounded in respected, canonical texts from the past. Goodwin, Selling Songs, Moreover, notes serve as an important tool for edifying a less knowledgeable readership. What aspects of the text are subject to annotation?
An unlicensed prostitute in Shima-no-uchi. In Kokushi there is an episode about two beauties named Shima-no-senzai and Waka-nomai during the time of retired emperor Toba, whom he summoned and watched dance. This is the origin of unlicensed prostitution. By citing an unknown history, yet drawing from a famous example of entertainers associated with the imperial court of the past, the note creates a long tradition of prostitution outside the licensed quarters and elevates the status of women engaged in this profession.
The annotation at the opening of the text reads: The author humbly hopes that readers will familiarize themselves with the etiquette of Shima-no-uchi. The style of this work may be seen as strange. The didactic nature of the work is evident from the classification of primarily negative and undesirable Burton Watson, trans. The episode is intended to teach men what courtesans regard as appealing.
This section presents the pleasure district of Shima-no-uchi as one that has its own culture, its own events, and its own calendar. Truly, [she] followed in the footsteps of Princess Kukuri, became well-versed in the way of love between men and women, and was naturally called a woman of elegance. The respective section reads: In the Land of Yomi when Izanami refuses to accompany Izanagi and prefers to stay in the land of the dead, the deity Kukuri convinces Izanagi to leave.
Since she reconciled Izanami and Izanagi, she is considered the deity of matchmaking. According to the colophon, she is reluctant to have her writings read due to criticisms she has made of others and the fact that they may see this and take offence. The allusion to the deity Kukuri suggests that Sei is regarded as a matchmaker and her Pillow Book was intended to unite men and women. The collection of zappai verses NKBZ 11, The translation is mine. It likens the process of courtship, which was central to Heian literary culture, to the practice of wooing courtesans.
All three works function as sources of a specific kind of knowledge related to eroticism and sexuality. Although such transformations may be seen as attempts to construct a distinct tradition of sexuality rooted in the Heian imperial court, the early modern texts reduce court culture to the politics of the sex trade. From the mid-eighteenth to the early nineteenth centuries, however, three illustrated adaptations of The Pillow Book were produced: What kind of intended readership do such new versions project?
What image of the author did such works construct? Kornicki refers to the catalogue of books included in Shorin shuppan 1, A third category consists of books that centre on the arts, such as flower arrangement, tea ceremony, music koto and shamisen , calligraphy, painting, and games such as sugoroku. Finally, the last category contains works related to literature, specifically to the Japanese poetry recorded within the twenty-one imperial anthologies.
It must be realized that in another country [i. A woman follows her husband, so even if she is learned it is of no benefit. Perhaps the morality of The Pillow Book remained uncontested because the work was already relegated to the periphery of the literary canon. The scant number of poems included in The Pillow Book likely made this Heian classic unappealing to the producers of instructional manuals for women.
Since the main purpose of such textbooks was to cultivate poetry composition skills, unlike the Ise and the Genji sections of The Pillow Book do not appear in jokunsho. See Kornicki, , Entitled Ehon Asahiyama Illustrated Book: Asahi Mountain , it presents an abridged version of The Pillow Book that features forty of the mono-type lists. There are many that show them engaged in daily activities such as combing their hair, sewing, playing go, holding and playing with children, reading, writing, playing the koto, and others that focus on travel and transportation including images of carriages, boats, horses, and pilgrims.
Second, the illustrations focus on women and various aspects of their everyday life Figures 3. Furthermore, in the catalogue of upcoming books attached to the end of the Asahiyama, works targeting a female audience i. The inclusion of the catalogue suggests that the work was advertised as reading material for young women. Asahiyama, Book One Detail: Koten Bunko, , Catalogue of upcoming books included in the Asahiyama. The preface to the first edition reads: When she lived in Sanuki in her later years, she [remembered] the past with great fondness, [and] her thoughts went back to the capital.
As a way to pass the time while in the countryside, she selected from the notes she wrote moving words, illustrated them through pictures, and entitled the book Asahiyama. Regardless, the happiness of the bookstore will be great, should the book be transmitted broadly and become the bedroom companion of beautiful women. By repackaging a literary text from the past and attributing the product to a Heian woman writer, Sukenobu and Orie create a work that proposes to be a source of knowledge that an experienced female relays to younger women.
I consider the content of the work in greater detail in Sections 3. Within this genre, however, Sukenobu has signed the preface of the edition of the Asahiyama which is an abridged version of the original preface.
These are three volumes from the notes she wrote which I spotted and [thought] it was by no means senseless to [apply] to those [original] pictures a [more] contemporary brush. Both Hayashi and Hayakawa provide commentary on the illustrations and draw parallels to Ehon Asahiyama. However, neither considers the work as intended for a female audience. Heibonsha, , See also Hayashi, Kadokawa Gakugei Shuppan, , 8.
However, since they appeared a century after the production of Haru no akebono, it is unlikely that the title of Haru no akebono signaled a work with an erotic content to readers. Erotic Images in Japan, Honolulu: Like the Asahiyama, this adaptation was in three volumes, each starting with a love poem drawn from an imperial anthology. Its preface adapted the preface to the Asahiyama in the following way: Now I have restored the work to its most elegant form, entitled it Spring Dawn, and circulated it widely.
It would bring this bookstore no little happiness should this work become the bedroom companion of beautiful women. Each section contains an illustration that features a couple or couples, inscription of a list, and a dialogue between the depicted figures written within the picture itself. The caption in the Asahiyama reads: The song of the birds on that day.
The sound of a cough—and also, I need hardly say, of a musical instrument—at dawn. The pine tree decoration in front of the gate indicates the beginning of the year. This appears as Section This rearrangement of the passages to prioritize spring sets a celebratory tone for the work. The producers of Haru no akebono, on the other hand, have retained the focus of the passage on beginnings and sounds but have adapted it as follows: The focus on beginnings in the opening of the work can be also related to the fact that books in the Edo period were usually published for the New Year.
All three examples of the Asahiyama have been rewritten so that they feature relations between a man and a woman, namely between married couples, and a female owner of a brothel and a male client. The illustration in Haru no akebono Figure 3. The two scenes are placed on separate pages— the one with the maids occupies the right page and the one with the couple is on the left page. The dialogues between the characters included within the pictures are as follows: Here turn this way! Shall I extinguish the lamp? Do you think you could help me with my little secret man?
You can really hear them making out. In other words, readers are first introduced to the dildo and then shown a real scene of love making. These Hayashi, English translation of the lists and the dialogues inscribed within the illustrations is included in the edition published by the International Research Center for Japanese Studies. I have thus cited from the translation of the dialogues but adjusted for any discrepancies with the base text. See Hayakawa , Haru no akebono, Book One Detail: Ehon Haru no akebono, trans. The work thus opens with a section that features the beginning of a married life and continues with lists that present various aspects of intimate relationship that are evaluated by the headings of the respective lists.
Haru no akebono, Book Two Detail: The illustration Figure 3. The dialogues within the illustrations are as follows: He made me so nervous. This aspect of waiting for a long time is further shared with the scene that depicts a woman reading a marriage proposal. Thus, the episode draws a link between eternal love and sex. Haru no akebono, Book Three Detail: The dialogues between the couples that populate the pages of Haru no akebono are a new element that is missing in Asahiyama.
All the conversations, which are concise but Hayashi, Becoming mentally unstable and developing an eye disease, O-Taka begins visiting an eye doctor on a daily basis. Yojiemon becomes sexually obsessed from their first night onward, but, after two years of love making, is bedridden due to his excessive sexual activity mizu Nakano Setsuko, Kangaeru onnatachi Tokyo: The early-modern story parodies its medieval predecessors by substituting the death of the woman with her infidelity.
Yet, despite the fact that sterility and adultery were two of the seven reasons for divorce in the Edo period, the heroine is not punished for her transgression. The story does end with a divorce, but it is a happy ending for O-Taka, who walks away from an onerous marriage with significant wealth. When she reached the appropriate age for marriage, people from here and there asked for her hand. Her mother was at a loss how to reply. Within the next four to five years she remarries unsuccessfully seven times. The story ends as follows: Unlike the previous story, this narrative ends with a successful marriage.
The two stories, however, share similarities in plot. The sexual urges of the man in the story about O-Taka and the woman in the story of O-Tsuya are presented as problematic, and are resolved by the end of each narrative. The old man becomes sexually inactive due to illness and enters the Buddhist path, while the young woman, faced with the prospect of a similar path, has her excessive sexuality restored to normal and enters a successful marriage. In other words, the stories tell readers what makes a marriage succeed or fail, with sexuality and fecundity being central to both.
The final illustration of Haru no akebono Figure 3. Next to her is a pile of books, and in front of the table is a blooming cherry branch in a vase. The tsuitate screen next to the table depicts a Chinese landscape with a plum branch in its centre. The image of the woman writer, and the cherry and plum branches evoke ancient aristocratic culture.
Since Heian women were held as exemplary in early-modern manuals for women, as Nakano argues, the image of the Heian female at the end of the work further reinforces the idea that Haru no akebono transmits knowledge from the past and fosters courtly comportment. The opening scene of the book that features the first night of a married couple, discussed above, suggests that this work was intended as a manual for the sexual education of young women.
Although erotic, this book can be viewed as sharing similarities with female educational texts, which construct women as subservient to their husbands and provide practical advice for improving spousal relations. The Book of Secret Transmissions which came out in , and was published several times Nakano, Whereas the latter, imbued with Confucian overtones, create an image of the ideal woman as one who is a spiritless Ibid.
Onna daigaku appeals to its readers to simply obey their husbands and avoid arguing with them. The erotic parody Onna dairaku, on the other hand, provides detailed instructions about how a woman should sexually please her husband during the night following a quarrel. Central to such texts, Gerstle notes, was laughter, which functioned as a device that mitigated embarrassment related to the topic of sex across gender and class.
What settings can be imagined in which women read erotic parodies? Many of the illustrations in Haru no akebono include a couple looking at another couple engaged in sexual intercourse. In other cases, such as Figure 3. Such illustrations are an imaginative rendering of possibilities and do not necessarily depict reality, but they allow us to discern the intended readership, specifically the couples who consumed these works together while enjoying the erotic and entertaining content.
The section features fourteen lists in exactly the same form as they appear in the Asahiyama, though reordered. I was not alone in recognizing the Chinese poem she had quoted; in fact all the ladies knew the lines and had even rewritten them in Japanese. Yet, no one but me had managed to think of it instantly. The following illustrated fictions soragoto are based on a selection from The Pillow Book that Sei wrote while she was in Sanuki.
Girls with heart, read The Pillow Book in its entirety! If you attend to it intently, your daily comportment will no doubt become self-possessed, your feelings will be comprehended when you mingle with friends, your heart will acquire natural gracefulness, and when you compose poems about the moon and the flowers, they will be imbued with feeling. The strong presence of the male gaze through which Sei is constructed is further evident in the accompanying illustration Figure 3.
Although omitted from the illustration, the emperor in front of whom she is lifting the blind can be imagined as the holder of the gaze, which overlaps with that of the reader. Despite the fact that women in literary works from the Heian period are depicted as hidden from the male gaze, here she is surrounded and viewed directly by several men. This portrayal of Sei as an object of desire follows the conventional depiction of aristocratic women and courtesans in educational books for female readers as representatives of a court culture known for yasashisa courtliness, refinement, and allure.
Yasashisa encompassed Hanabusa Hideki, trans. Nakamura Insatsu Shuppanbu, If one happens to recall it, one is very pleased. Hearing finally a stealthy tapping, she sends her maid to open the gate and lies waiting excitedly. But the name announced by the maid is that of someone with whom she has absolutely no connection. Of all the depressing things this is by far the worst. At dawn, just when one has forgotten about him for a moment and dozed off, a crow caws loudly.
An attractive young woman raises the lower part of a white curtain of state and attaches it to the cross-bar on top. Over her unlined robe of white damask she wears a coat of violet gauze. She is engaged in writing practice, and the fine, smooth sheets of her notebook are elegantly bound by threads of uneven shading. To pass the time, one starts looking through some old papers. The illustrations resemble those in the Asahiyama but, like the text, these, too, have been adapted by altering, zooming in, or cropping. The cry of a deer. River bamboo swaying in the evening breeze.
A mountain village in the snow. A dilapidated house Emori, Waka, In addition to its centrality within the illustration, this reference to filial piety is the first entry in the list. A child or grown-up blurts out something that is bound to make people uncomfortable. All night long one has been waiting for a man who one thought was sure to arrive.
One wakes up with a start and sees that it is daytime—most astonishing. In the next room a woman is waiting for her lover who has failed to visit and is looking up at a crow. A person in whose company one feels awkward asks one to supply the opening or closing line of a poem. It also places an emphasis on women brimming with confidence and erudition, which the producers of the work convey as pleasing.
Asahiyama, Book Two Detail: The adaptations of The Pillow Book portray educated women. In the illustration to Asahiyama the woman is reading Figure 3. Moreover, in the later edition, the man is not behind a fence but in front of the woman, and although she is fully aware of his presence she continues writing, smiling at him.
The years passed, and the young woman lost support when her father died. The man said to himself, and he began visiting a woman in Takayasu County of Kawachi province. His original wife, though, saw him off without ever reproaching him. Suspecting her of having a lover, he pretended to set off for Kawachi but hid instead in the nearby shrubbery to spy on her.
