Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Revolt of a Gallant Poet


The beginning of the Heian Era (around 851), there was a young nobleman named Ariwara no Narihira serving in various government posts, such as Keeper of the Archives. This gentleman had great poetic ability, a handsome honor, was valorous, and was generally of an open and natural nature.

Narihira's grandfather was Emperor Heizei, and his mother and father were also of imperial blood, but he himself was not so high. This is because at that time the power and influence of the Fujiwara clan was running rampant in the palace, and they suppressed the eminence of the other noble families.

This Narihara meets the beautiful Princess Takaiko, who is working as a dancing girl at one of the imperial flower banquets. Takaiko is Grand Minister Fujiwara no Yoshifusa's niec and adopted daughter. Yoshifusa intends to increase the influence of the Fujiwara clan by introducing Takaiko to one of the imperial princes.

Takaiko, who has discerned her uncle's secret motive, and under pressure from her brother Mototsune, who is in sympathy with the plan, refuses to participate in the dance. Narihira sees her angry face in profile from nearby, and later sees her dancing beautifully, and he is won over by her. Narihira, who is well-known for being a refined man, but this is the first time that he has gotten such a strong impression as he did from his meeting with Takaiko. With this beginning, Takaiko begins to think more of Narihira, and the two have secret trysts as they make deep pledges to each other.

The townsfolk immediately begin gossiping about Narihira's movements, so that Yoshifusa and Mototsune eventually find out and move Takaiko from her aunt's house in Gojo to Yoshifusa's in Ichijo. Stymmied, Narihira goes to have casual words with his friends Umewaka and Abe no Kiyoyuki, who live in the east of the city. Unable to have hs way in either power or love, and with his mother having passed away, Narihira sets out on a journey.

On his return, he meets for the first time in a long time his distant relative, the imperial princess Yasuko who serves as a priestess at the Ise Shrine. Only a girl when she left the capital, she has now grown into a beautiful woman. She is awakened to love when she sees Narihara and his sad circumstances. She holds him as if in comfort.

When Narihira returns to the capital, an incident occurs. At the main gate of the great imperial palace, the Outen Gate has burned in an accidental fire. Everyone says that it was set on purpose, by the chief councilor.... There is an eye-witness, and although he doesn't remember doing it, the chief councilor is overthrown. This was all the maneuvering of Fujiwara Mototsune.... Yosifusa, who was a political opponent of the chief councilor, has no scruples, but instead hurries his daughter's imperial bridal party's entry into the court.

Takaiko is now deep in the imperial court.... Narihira determines to make preparations for her escape and to steal her away unaided, when she returns temporarily to Gojo.....
