Name Order[edit]

Any reason this article is titled Kono Taeko instead of Taeko Kono? I thought modern-day Japanese biographic articles went with Given Name - Family Name order. --Do Not Talk About Feitclub (contributions) 03:02, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

-- true, but in English we give first name, then Last, so it's less confusing for English speakers this way, I suppose.

"Her main themes in ‘Toddler Hunting’: an obsession with young boys, a hatred of girls, a tendency towards sadomasochism. Eroticism can be seen as a central motif in her works. Nevertheless, her protagonists' affinity for sadomasochism may not be an end in of itself; it is one method her female protagonists use to express their desire for self-negation over procreation (see the works of Julia Kristeva, particularly Powers of Horror for information on this phenomenon). Her most recent works tend to be more understated, perhaps due to her age, perhaps feeling less of a need to shock and more a desire to explain the theme of humanity from a woman's perspective, which has remained throughout all of her works to this day."
