Sayuri also shows how the geisha struggled to find jobs when she tells us "Even though General Tottori has been my danna until the previous year, I certainly wasn't the only geisha acquainted with him.
How geishas lived before changed after World War II. Geishas lived much more differently after the war. Golden shows how unfamiliar changes took place for the geisha after the war. In the novel, when Sayuri gets a visit from one of the men she entertained "When I was done, he stood looking at me a long while.
I thought he was about to say he found me beautiful-for this was the sort of comment he sometimes made after gazing at me for no reason. He had a scowl on his face as he turned away. It is also obviously shown that the war has affected geisha when Arthur Golden writes "I spent a day rushing from the hairdressers to the fortune-teller's; soaking my hands to remove the last of the stains.
Now that I was nearing thirty, I would no longer be expected to wear white makeup except on special occasions. After earning degrees in Japanese art and history from Harvard and Columbia—and an M.
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. Readers experience the entire life of a geisha, from her origins as an orphaned fishing-village girl in 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.
Her villainous geisha nemesis is sharply drawn, but she would be more 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.
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.
Under the tutelage of the renowned Mameha, she becomes a leading geisha of the s and s. Still, Golden, with degrees in Japanese art and history, has brilliantly revealed the culture and traditions of an exotic world, closed to most Westerners.
