The Chaos and Cosmos of Kurosawa Tokiko

Laura Nenzi

University of Hawai'i Press

In this chapter, which covers the months between the end of 1858 and the spring of 1859, the small world of Kurosawa Tokiko comes within full sight of large-scale history. A series of portents and fateful encounters alerted her to the ongoing crisis and made it unavoidable for a base-born woman to step out of her microcosm and become politically involved.

Keywords:   portents, comet, Emperor Kōmei, Ansei Purges, Tokugawa Nariaki, Koibuchi Kaname, gender, geopolitics
