Genji Monogatari: The Lady at the Bridge

His style & technique
were never a major
concern for her—they
were experimental
uncertainties, & a suite
of concern-sensitive
heuristic rules for the
detection of design flaws
helped smooth them
out. Much more
worrying were the lack
of temporal direction, the
reliance on binary opposites,
the infinite impossibility
of the text. There can be no
peaceful coexistence—the
privileged term is defined
by what it suppresses. Men
& women are portrayed
differently in Genji.
