Strana 151 - Bridge I see The Hoar-frost King has cast His sparkling mantle, well I know.' " "Heaven!" said Kojiju, smiling, as she took up the latter lines: " 'The night is nearly past, Daylight approaches fast.
Strana 149 - The next is the poem by the Mother of the Minister of State : ' How difficult it is for men Not to forget the past!'" " At least I can't fail to pick one up ! " cried Yokobue excitedly. She took up the card and read mechanically : " ' I fear my husband's love for me Is disappearing fast; This day must be my last.

Strana 20 - ... of the people around him. In jidai-mono, historical plays, although the heroes are drawn from the pages of history, the plots are nevertheless far removed from actual events. Even more distant from life is a special variety of historical play, aragoto, which, as mentioned already, treats of Herculean warriors, weird spectres, etc. and appeals to the feeling of the audience by fantastic action, bombastic dialogue and grotesque make-up.
