I need help with a English question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Read “The Paulownia Pavilion” chapter from the Tale of Genji and answer the following questions with help from the text.
– Look for incidences of jealousy between women. Who is jealous and why? How does social status seem to play into this?
-Considering the marriage politics of the time, why is Kiritsubo (Genji’s Mother) at such a disadvantage to Kokiden (the Emperor’s Principal Wife) (i.e. why can’t the Emperor protect her)? Why does Kokiden hate Kiritsubo (and Genji) so much?
-What is your overall impression of this chapter?
