A Thousand Tangled Thoughts
Inspiration for my novel in progress.
Yosano, Akiko, 1878-1942. Myojo sho. Tokyo: Kaneo Bun'endo, 1918. Japan's noted poet and feminist writer, Yosano Akiko, published her first volume of poems "Midaregami (Tangled hair)" in 1901. It contained nearly 400 poems of passion and sensuality and was enthusiastically received. Shown here is another of her bestseller "Myojo sho," her handwritings were copied on to the beautifully produced papers.
