All married men and men who engage in conventional sex have undoubtedly
had firsthand experience of the recidivist self-centeredness that is the
narcissism of women.
It is less difficult for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a
woman to separate from her own self and regard herself objectively. Among
the recently increasing numbers of homosexual men there are also undoubtedly
those who revel in a highly subjective form of narcissism, identical to that
of women, that is closely associated with the physical body. But this is a separate
issue. For my task here is to discuss the mysterious entity referred to as
the woman writer. Given that she is a variety of woman, the woman writer
will doubtless be subject to the same obsessive self-centeredness that afflicts all
women. This is her biological fate. And since Okamoto Kaneko is also a woman,
we must expect that she too will be subject to the same effect.
