9780804818667: Beauty in Disarray (Tuttle Classics of Japanese Literature)

Japan's Taisho era (1912-26) was a period of widespread unrest and radical change. Socialists were demanding the end of the class system; anarchists were calling for the overthrow of the government; a feminist movement had announced the birth of the "new woman." In the middle of all this turbulence was a woman barely out of high school, Noe Ito. Ito's life is the stuff of legend - alienation, rebellion, passion, and persecution, all in twenty-eight short years. She was married three times and gave birth to seven children; she was at the center of a scandal when another woman stabbed her lover because he had started living with Ito. Despite the turmoil of her private life, Ito spent a year as editor of the magazine Seito, one of the most revolutionary publications of the day. Was Ito a selfless "new woman" or a selfish hedonist, a rare woman ahead of her time or a mere victim of her times? Noe Ito is a complex character whom no two readers will view the same way, but all will agree that author Harumi Setouchi has created a remarkable portrait of an exceptional woman.
