This is one of my favourite prompts, as it captures a real tension.
In Praise of Shadows – Wikipedia
Tanizaki’s text flows from one topic to another almost dreamlike and ranges over architecture, jade, food, skin tone, and toilets. Other topics, such as the sequestration of women and the blackening of their teeth so that their faces will appear more luminous in the dark seem simply odd and culturally specific. This spmbra have something to do with the artistic field’s discomfort with the true renderings of their beloved ancient marble statues of Greek and Rome origin, or English’s insistence on calling white people white when I, motherfucking pale that I am, at most can lay claim to a sort of pasty beige with eoogio of brown and red and hairs all over.
When Tanizaki describes ‘darkness lit by candlelight’ or the gold costumes of the Noh glowing in dimness, he makes us aware that every banal drama of the day takes its character from its illumination.
Sin lugar a dudas, es una lectura que recomiendo. It explains why my personal copy of this is saturated with notes and highlights, but not why the translators and forwards and afterwords make cheeky side eye winks at Tanizaki’s appreciation of defecation but avoid altogether the antiblack race formulations involved in his personal theories of color.

Shadows form an integral part of Japanese traditional aesthetic and in the subsequent cyclic philosophy of concealment and revelation through a game of shadows the crucial beauty becomes highly seductive.
It’s all go go go. I’ve put it on the rereading shelf.
The possibility of the diminishing aesthetical darkness that had once augmented the veiled beauty of Noh into a mystical world of realistic fantasy is feared with raging odds of the regal art being another commonplace theatrical facade. Every time I am shown to an old, dimly lit, and, I would add, impeccably clean toilet in a Nara or Kyoto temple, I am impressed with the singular virtues of Japanese architecture.

The softness of an object is highlighted through the shades of darkness; its beauty enhanced through an array of radiated nuances, the shadows cultivating a life of their own. The light from the garden steals in but dimly through paper-paneled doors, and it is precisely this indirect light that makes for us the charm of the room. And so it has come to be that the beauty of a Japanese room depends on the variation of shadows, heavy shadows against light shadows—it has nothing else.
I like the minimalism, the subtlety, the naturalness. The parlor may have its charms, but the Japanese toilet truly is a place of spiritual repose. E comparar as retretes orientais com as ocidentais. Refresh and try again. It addresses the felt quality of experience in any lived moment, not just as an end in itself but because each such moment belongs to a lifelong series in which beauty and richness of experience are important components of the good life.

O livro continuou na mesma veia desinteressante. Don’t expect to see this by visiting Japan now. Leaving aside the afterword’s obsession with Tanizaki’s “lack of structure” harping yet again on Proust, has no one in the business of translating Japanese philosophical works read him?!

It is as if you desire to remove the mask off the face exposing the vulnerabilities and apprehension of the actor contrasting that of its stage character.
Let’s be honest, though: The hue may differ from room to room, but the degree of difference will be ever so slight; not so much a difference in color as in shade, a difference that will seem to exist only in the mood of the viewer.
No words can describe that sensation as one sits in the dim light, basking in the faint glow reflected from the shoji, lost in meditation or gazing out at the garden. The essay acts as “a classic description of the collision between the shadows of traditional Japanese interiors and the dazzling light of the modern age”.
The subtle chase between you and the devious shadow; toughening with iunichiro stomp on the dried grey asphalt while queries of whether you have lost your marbles looming in the humid air. A universe in your thoughts.
More than this, however, ‘In Praise of Shadows’ is a homage to the Eloigo tendency to beautify things, to bring out the innate artistry of things; “The quality we call beauty, however, must always grow from the realities of life, and our ancestors, forced to live in dark rooms, presently came to discover beauty in shadows, ultimately to guide shadows to beauty’s ends.
