    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBJapanese Cinderella Turns Cruelty into KindnessNote I'm giving this book five stars as a historical literary treasure from 10th century JapanAs a book for modern reading pleasure it would rank only as a 3 star bookHow many novels written before 1000 AD have you read ? Not many I would bet That might be because there weren't a large number European nobles left writing and reading to monks and spent their time jousting feasting drinking wenching and disturbing the peace Meanwhile in Heian era Japan poetry and romantic moods were the occupation of a similarly small class of people Poems on matching paper accompanied gifts The elite of Heian society possessed an amazing aesthetic sense unrivaled almost anywhere else Religious and political ceremony had developed into arts ritual took an important place in Heian society Just reading a novel set in such a society where one wrote poems on a daily basis and handwriting spoke volumes will open your eyes to the immense vari

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB The Tale of Lady Ochibuko is less a novel than it is a novella; regardless of this it was actually written about twenty or thirty years prior to The Tale of Genji which comes as sort of a surprise to me What also really stands out to me about Ochibuko is that it's a precursor to the modern Cinderella story I sort of wonder what has caused this particular work to sink into obscuri

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBThose hoping for a second Genji will perhaps be disappointed by the comparative sketchiness of The Tale of Ochikubo but it rattles along for all its breeziness or because of it and remains consistently charming from start to finish While the lady herself is never other than a paragon there is a fair amount of realistic and subtle characterization elsewhere even in the case of the wicked stepmother Really uite a satisfying re

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB‘The Tale of Lady Ochikubo’ is a tenth century Japanese monogatari if the translation is fair to the source material it’s essentially a novel I know very little about Japanese culture nothing about Heian period yet I have read other early novels and I found myself surprisingly at homeThere’s something about this book which is not a million miles away from late seventeenth century or early eighteenth century literature There is the same f

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBI didn't like it as much as I recognize its cultural value Many aspects of Heian Japan are charming and intriguing; many are uncomfortable Particular among that latter element are prevalent themes of male strength opposed to female weakness Not only were women powerless in the social field where their only means of enacting change was hen pecking and moody silence; but in the physical field female vulnerability weeping protesting was seen as erotic and non consensual relationships are presented as the matter of fact norm with startling regularity and with no blemish left on the man's moral s

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBA delight to reread after teaching classes on the Tale of Genji for many years Did I really finish reading the book when I bought it in the 80s with so many other translations from classical Japanese literature In any case this time I read with care and enjoyment doing spot checks with the original and a modern Japanese translation This Engli

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBRealized I read this before and didn't really think of it as a book though I guess it could almost be the length of a novella In terms of style and content is far removed from it's contemporary writings though I could give it credit for potentially helping to spur the late 10th century feminine writing movementAs for it being the Japanese 'Cinderella' story it isn't they share vague similarities but the comparison is weak They share a similar fatalism but then most pre modern works in general fall back on fatalism The Buddhist sentiments of The Tale of Lady Ochikubo offer no parallel to the 'hard work and suffering get rewarded' Christian b

    Kindle anthropomorphic.co à 落窪物語 PDF/EPUB ↠ 落窪物語 epub, 落窪物語 PDF/EPUBI devoured this book I found it wonderfully exotic and entertaining but I fear my reading of it and my understanding was pretty superficial This was my first exposure to 10th Century Japanese culture and history and so I'm afraid I had no reference point from which to take a substantial meaning Still it did spark in me an interest of doing further research on the subject and perhaps when I become a little knowledgeable I'll pick up the book again and
