In her diary, the author describes her unhappy marriage and growing indignation at the rival wives and mistresses taken by her husband. Too impetuous to play the role of a subsidiary wife, the author protests the marriage system of her time in one of Japanese literature's earliest portrayals of the difficulties faced by women in a male-dominated society. 16 pages of photos.
