Commentary
In this play, a Buddhist monk encounters the spirit of Ono no Komachi, a noted 9th c. poet and great beauty, who had insisted that the courtier Fukakusa no Shosho wait outside her door for 100 nights before she would accept him. When he failed to do that, she rejected him, and he died and now was suffering in hell. Here Shosho’s ghost tries to appeal once more to Komachi.
