Susano-o, Orikuchi Shinobu, and the Imagination of Exile in Early Japan
This chapter traces the role of exile in the earliest chronicles of the Japanese court, focusing on the banishment of the god Susano-o narrated in those royal chronicles. The chapter also explains why the theories of the ethnologist Orikuchi Shinobu regarding exile narratives in early Japan are inadequate to fully understand the role of exile in narratives of the early Japanese court.
