Ihara Saikaku “What the Seasons Brought to the Alamnac-Maker book “Anthology of Japanese Literature” by DONALD KEENE // (PAGES 335-353)

“It was a worthy vision, but Osan said to herself, ?What becomes of me now does not matter. I left my husband at the risk of my life because this love appealed to me. Monju may understand the love of men for men, but he knows nothing of the love of women.”
(Keene, Anthology of Japanese Literature, p. 350)

This line uttered by Osan in Ihara Saikaku?s What the Seasons Brought to the Almanac Maker shows how Osan is willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of her love. Do you believe Saikaku meant to extol the virtues of love in the face of hardship, did Saikaku mean this as a cautionary tale, or do you have a different interpretation of the story entirely? Take a position and identify at least three examples in the text that support your ideas.
