Example text

With the moving of the sun, the universe changes time and color; the combination of red, black, and blue in “Enji-Murasaki” indicates the working of the sun whose light pierces the canopy of the sky. The speaker’s pride, raised to its apogee, 34 The Japanese Reformation of Poetic Language  even usurps the cosmic throne as the center of the universe, which represents the emancipated culmination of her limited self, rather than its disappearance into the anonymous absence of cosmic darkness.
