Supplied with the spatial expansion modeled on the Western long poem, Yosano Akiko’s avantgardist universe becomes modernist, supported by the framework of the traditional Waka that highlights its forwarding contrast actualized by the original feminine voice for catharsis and encouragement. The illuminating voice envelops the reader as sunlight.
