Abstract

This love story set at the dawn of the Russo-Japanese War reveals the limitations of modernity within Japan's hierarchical and patriarchal society. Okane returns home after living as a wealthy man's mistress and encounters hostility from townspeople. Seisaku, a model Japanese youth, comes home after army training. The two fall in love, but Okane's reputation stains Seisaku's status as a symbol of modern Japan.
