FIRST EDITION.

ONE OF THE FIRST 35 EXAMPLES on Imperial Japan.

A work that borrows the title of one of the passages from the Wheat Grass, "Those pleasures that we call lightly physics"was to be called The Cunning, Remous or Écumes.

Colette explains to Hélène Picard:
"He's stirring up old love stuff, mingling with unisex love - at last he's doing what he can."

The flesh: "Sense, unfaithful lords, ignorant like the princes of old who learned only the essentials: conceal, hate, command."
