Ten Nights of Dreams(夢十夜:ゆめじゅうや)

The Second Night(第二夜:だいいちや)

Soseki Natsume(夏目 漱石:なつめ そうせき)


The dreamer, who is staying in a temple, returns to his chamber after leaving the high priest’s quarters. He settles himself and reaches under his seating cushion to confirm the presence of a dagger. Then, he reflects on his exchange with the high priest. The priest had scorned him for his years of failure in attaining enlightenment. No true samurai, the priest had said, would succumb so to failure. The dreamer decides he must take either the priest’s life or his own, that very evening, when the clock strikes the next hour. If he succeeds in attaining enlightenment, then the priest will pay. If not, then he will commit seppuku. He struggles mightily to find “nothingness.” His struggle turns to frustration and then to anger. As he struggles without success, the clock strikes the hour.
