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.)
