TOP V. WEEKEND PICKS (1/5-1/11)

To quote a footnote regarding photography, language, ambiguity, and a smile.

25. Abe, The Box Man: A Novel (New York, NY: Vintage, 1999) 81; Hako otoko akz 24:44. In the Japanese original, “one grins” is “hito wa ha o muku,” which literally means “one reveals one’s teeth,” suggesting not purported congeniality (as “grin” might) but hostility and readiness to attack. (This is a minor point of contention, as “ha o muku” is a slightly unidiomatic expression; “kiba o muku” [literally “to reveal one’s fang’s”] is definetely a hostile act, while “ha o miseru” [literlly “to show one’s teeth] is a performance of congeniality. It is unclear which Abe had in mind when he used an expression midway between the two, as his expression is less idiomatic than those two are.)

From: The rhetoric of photography in modern Japanese literature: materiality in the visual register as narrated by Tanazaki Jun ichiro, Abe Kobo, Horie Toshiyuki and Kanai Meiko / by Atsuko Sakaki. (Boston: Brill 2015) p.67
