ന What is text 䒹 Memoirs of a Geisha (Vintage Contemporaries) pdf ඐ Kindle Author Arthur Golden ඩ ന What is text 䒹 Memoirs of a Geisha (Vintage Contemporaries) pdf ඐ Kindle Author Arthur Golden ඩ According to Arthur Golden s absorbing first novel, the word geisha does not mean prostitute, as Westerners ignorantly assume it means artisan or artist To capture the geisha experience in the art of fiction, Golden trained as long and hard as any geisha who must master the arts of music, dance, clever conversation, crafty battle with rival beauties, and cunning seduction of wealthy patrons After earning degrees in Japanese art and history from Harvard and Columbia and an M.A in English he met a man in Tokyo who was the illegitimate offspring of a renowned businessman and a geisha This meeting inspired Golden to spend 10 years researching every detail of geisha culture, chiefly relying on the geisha Mineko Iwasaki, who spent years charming the very rich and famous. The result is a novel with the broad social canvas and love of coincidence of Charles Dickens and Jane Austen s intense attention to the nuances of erotic maneuvering Readers experience the entire life of a geisha, from her origins as an orphaned fishing village girl in 1929 to her triumphant auction of her mizuage virginity for a record price as a teenager to her reminiscent old age as the distinguished mistress of the powerful patron of her dreams We discover that a geisha is analogous to a Western trophy wife than to a prostitute and, as in Austen, flat out prostitution and early death is a woman s alternative to the repressive, arcane system of courtship In simple, elegant prose, Golden puts us right in the tearoom with the geisha we are there as she gracefully fights for her life in a social situation where careers are made or destroyed by a witticism, a too revealing or not revealing enough glimpse of flesh under the kimono, or a vicious rumor spread by a rival as cruel as a spider Golden s web is finely woven, but his book has a serious flaw the geisha s true romance rings hollow the love of her life is a symbol, not a character Her villainous geisha nemesis is sharply drawn, but she would be so if we got a deeper peek into the cause of her motiveless malignity the plight all geisha share Still, Golden has won the triple crown of fiction he has created a plausible female protagonist in a vivid, now vanished world, and he gloriously captures Japanese culture by expressing his thoughts in authentic Eastern metaphors.I wasn t born and raised to be a Kyoto geisha.I m a fisherman s daughter from a little town called Yoroido on the Sea of Japan How nine year old Chiyo, sold with her sister into slavery by their father after their mother s death, becomes Sayuri, the beautiful geisha accomplished in the art of entertaining men, is the focus of this fascinating first novel Narrating her life story from her elegant suite in the Waldorf Astoria, Sayuri tells of her traumatic arrival at the Nitta okiya a geisha house , where she endures harsh treatment from Granny and Mother, the greedy owners, and from Hatsumomo, the sadistically cruel head geisha But Sayuri s chance meeting with the Chairman, who shows her kindness, makes her determined to become a geisha Under the tutelage of the renowned Mameha, she becomes a leading geisha of the 1930s and 1940s After the book s compelling first half, the second half is a bit flat and overlong Still, Golden, with degrees in Japanese art and history, has brilliantly revealed the culture and traditions of an exotic world, closed to most Westerners Highly recommended Wilda Williams, Library JournalCopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
