The Dark Knight Q Memoirs of a Geisha Summary!?

I have a twenty question matching quiz on Thursday. There is a word bank and you choose the words that fit and I believe they can only be used once.

I was supposed to read the novel “Memoirs of a Geisha”, but I have been swamped with tests and have been unable to do so. The quiz is apparently “movie proof” so I am not going to bother watching the movie.

So can anyone summarize the main characters, a plot summary and some of the main points/highlights/theme of the novel. Best answer gets 10 points.

Note: I know I did not read the book, but no one needs to write a huge rant about how I am irresponsible for not reading the novel, I understand that, but that’s not the point of me creating this question.

anonymous A The novel is narrated from the point of view of Sayuri Nitta, a retired geisha in her 70s, living in the Waldorf Towers in New York City. She is interviewed by Jakob Haarhuis, a professor at New York University. Professor Haarhuis is credited as the story’s translator, although he is a fictional character himself. (This is apparently a reference to the fact that Golden interviewed a retired geisha as part of his research for the novel.) The story is told in flashback format with continuous references to the time between Sayuri’s career and the time she is being interviewed. She also periodically explains different aspects of geisha life.

Sayuri recalls her early childhood as Chiyo Sakamoto, a young girl growing up in a poor fishing village. Along with her older sister Satsu, she is sold into a life of servitude by her elderly father and dying mother when she is nine years old. Satsu is sold to a brothel, while Chiyo is acquired by the unsympathetic proprietress of the Nitta okiya, or geisha house, whom she addresses as “Mother”. She befriends Mother’s sister (“Auntie”) and another young girl in the house, Pumpkin, but also earns the jealous ire of the head geisha of the house, Hatsumomo.

Hatsumomo, envious of Sayuri’s beauty, sets out to make her life miserable. Chiyo comes to the okiya with a debt over her head, as she is responsible for repaying the okiya for her own purchase price. Hatsumomo adds to this debt by forcing Chiyo to destroy an expensive kimono owned by Mameha, Hatsumomo’s rival. She also accuses Chiyo of stealing an obi brooch, and Mother, taking Hatsumomo’s word over Chiyo’s, adds the cost to her debt.

Satsu finds Chiyo and the two work out a plan to run away together. Chiyo fails and is injured when she falls off a roof, while Satsu manages to escape, never to be heard from again. Mother adds Chiyo’s doctor bills to her debt and halts her geisha training, since investing in a girl who will run away does not make sense. Chiyo is henceforth destined for a life of servitude to the okiya as a maid.

One day while crying in the street, the young Chiyo is noticed by a passerby, Chairman Ken Iwamura, who gives her his handkerchief with some money to buy an iced snow-cone. Inspired by his act of kindness and awed by the beautiful geisha in his company, Chiyo resolves to become a geisha herself so that she may one day become a part of the Chairman’s life.

Early in her teenage years, Mameha, one of the top geisha in Kyoto at the time, convinces Mother to continue Chiyo’s training as a geisha. Chiyo becomes the “little sister” of Mameha. Under Mameha’s tutelage, the girl Chiyo becomes the apprentice geisha Sayuri. Hatsumomo uses her considerable influence to attempt to sabotage Sayuri’s career, and at first it appears as though she will be successful.

Mameha devises a plan to sell Sayuri’s mizuage, or virginity, for a high price, thereby freeing Sayuri from debt. Her plan centers around a man, Nobu Toshikazu, who happens to be President of the company owned by the Chairman, the very object of Sayuri’s affection. By feigning affection for Nobu, whom Hatsumomo finds repulsive, Sayuri is allowed some freedom from Hatsumomo’s terror. However, Nobu takes her affection seriously, and reciprocates, creating a conflict within Sayuri. Nobu is close friends with the Chairman, and his desire for Sayuri effectively eliminates any chance at happiness as the Chairman’s mistress. Further complicating matters is the fact that the Chairman appears not to recognize Sayuri, and although he treats her with kindness, he pays her little extra attention.

Meanwhile, her growing success impacts the careers and lives of Hatsumomo and her “little sister” Pumpkin. Hatsumomo tries to sabotage Sayuri’s career, but her bitterness and jealousy ends up destroying her own. When Sayuri’s virginity is sold for a record high price, she is able to pay off her debt to the okiya. Rather than Pumpkin, Sayuri is selected by Mother as the heir of the okiya, earning the name Nitta Sayuri and causing Pumpkin to despair.

Her successful career is cut short by the outbreak of World War II, but Sayuri’s safety is ensured by Nobu, who sends her to a different town to live with his friend’s family. Nonetheless, Sayuri and those close to her must endure a life of hard labor. After the end of the war, Nobu visits Sayuri and asks that she return to Gion to help entertain Deputy Minister Sato, who can help to restart the Chairman and Nobu’s company that was all but destroyed during the war. Nobu also tells Sayuri that once Iwamura Electric’s future is ensured, he will become Sayuri’s danna (patron). This distresses Sayuri, but she agrees to help due to her feeling of debt toward Nobu.

Once returned to Gion, Sayuri enlists the help of Mameha and Pumpkin to entertain the Deputy Minister. The three women become geisha once more, and Sayuri reunites with the Chairman through these entertainment gatherings. Eventually, Nobu tells Say

A literary sensation and runaway bestseller, this brilliant debut novel tells with seamless authenticity and exquisite lyricism the true confessions of one of Japan’s most celebrated geisha.

Speaking to us with the wisdom of age and in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a geisha. It begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, when, as a nine-year-old girl with unusual blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. We witness her transformation as she learns the rigorous arts of the geisha: dance and music; wearing kimono, elaborate makeup, and hair; pouring sake to reveal just a touch of inner wrist; competing with a jealous rival for men’s solicitude and the money that goes with it.

In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl’s virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction—at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful—and completely unforgettable. From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Preface:

Erich Moritz von Hornbostel (1877-1935) is generally regarded as the founder of Comparative Musicology.

The fifty-eight years of his lifetime saw an extraordinary expansion of the Western musical horizon; it was not only a period of ever accelerating progress toward an unpredictable future but also an era of rediscovery of a musical past with which the listeners of 1900 had lost touch.

Surveying the musical events of those almost three score years, we see that Hornbostel’s work formed an integral part of the musical life of his time. Hornbostel was not an isolated phenomenon. Since his writings are best understood and evaluated in the context of their period, as chapters in the history of ideas, it may be meaningful to review some of the features of the musical world in which Hornbostel pursued his life work.

Among their adventures were a Japanese tea ceremony at a geisha house, a sumo wrestling demonstration, elephant riding, singing …

This comprehensive guide is an ideal reference work for film specialists and enthusiasts. First published in 1984 but continuously updated ever since, CineGraph is the most authoritative and comprehensive encyclopedia on German-speaking cinema in the German language. This condensed and substantially revised English-language edition makes this important resource available to students and researchers for the first time outside its German context. It offers a representative historical overview through bio-filmographical entries on the main protagonists, from the beginnings to the present day. Included are directors and actors, writers and cameramen, composers and production designers, film theorists and critics, producers and distributors, inventors and manufacturers. An appendix includes short introductory essays on specific periods and movements, such as Early Film, Weimar, Nazi Cinema, DEFA, New German Cinema, and German film since unification, as well as on cinematic developments in Austria and Switzerland. Sections that crossreference names around specific professional groups and themes will prove equally invaluable to researchers.

Operetta developed in the second half of the 19th century from the French opéra-comique and the more lighthearted German Singspiel. As the century progressed, the serious concerns of mainstream opera were sustained and intensified, leaving a gap between opéra-comique and vaudeville that necessitated a new type of stage work.

Jacques Offenbach, son of a Cologne synagogue cantor, established himself in Paris with his series of opéras-bouffes. The popular success of this individual new form of entertainment light, humorous, satirical and also sentimental led to the emergence of operetta as a separate genre, an art form with its own special flavour and concerns, and no longer simply a “little opera”.

Attempts to emulate Offenbach’s success in France and abroad generated other national schools of operetta and helped to establish the genre internationally, in Spain, in England, and especially in Austria Hungary. Here it inspired works by Franz von Suppé and Johann Strauss II (the Golden Age), and later Franz Lehár and Emmerich Kálmán (the Silver Age). Viennese operetta flourished conterminously with the Habsburg Empire and the mystique of Vienna, but, after the First World War, an artistically vibrant Berlin assumed this leading position (with Paul Lincke, Leon Jessel and Edouard Künnecke).

As popular musical tastes diverged more and more during the interwar years, with the advent of new influences—like those of cabaret, the revue, jazz, modern dance music and the cinema, as well as changing social mores—the operetta genre took on new guises. This was especially manifested in the musical comedy of London’s West End and New York’s Broadway, with their imitators generating a success that opened a new golden age for the reinvented genre, especially after the Second World War.

This source book presents an overview of the operetta genre in all its forms. The second volume provides a survey of the national schools of Germany, Spain, England, America, the Slavonic countries (especially Russia), Hungary, Italy and Greece. The principal composers are considered in chronological sequence, with biographical material and a list of stage works, selected synopses and some commentary. This volume also contains a discography and an index covering both volumes (general entries, singers and theatres).

Rudolf Laban, the famed dancer-choreographer and ‘founding father’ of modern dance, also had experience as a painter, sculptor, and architect, and allowed those skills to influence his innovative choreographic techniques. His important works and his creation of one of the most significant forms of dance notation make him an essential component of dance history. Rudolf Laban: The Dancer of the Crystal examines Laban’s training, his teaching experiences, and the discovery and development of his principles of form and movement, paying special attention to his choreographic and philosophical work. Author Evelyn Doerr presents intriguing tidbits of the artist’s experience, such as Laban’s ambivalent position as the ‘dance organizer’ of the Nazi party in Germany, embedded in a historical and philosophical context, offering insights to his choreographic processes and the events that shaped his life.

The book presents the different stages and elements of Laban’s choreography discussing, for example, Laban’s “dance-sound-word” instructional approach, his concept of the “movement choir” and examples of its realization, the concepts of eukinetics and choreutics, and a description of how these subjects were taught in Laban’s school. Doerr also analyzes important elements in Laban’s theories of spatial harmony and of effort, and she investigates his various early systems of dance notation, leading to a detailed explanation of kinetography, Laban’s final notational system. A complete bibliography and an appendix of works choreographed between 1897 and 1936 help make this book an important contribution to Laban scholarship and to the dance, theater, and cultural history of Europe in the first half of the 20th century.
