Santō Kyōden wrote tales of the gay quarters until the Kansei edicts banned such works. Mary Braddon, in discussing her "Journey to the Sun" in Belgravia in 1876, described it as "scientific fiction," and in that same year Caxton's Book described Verne as "that master of scientific fiction." Heart stirring, often sudden, emotions create a life or death commitment. As a result, just as in Beowulf, the reader is aware of the paradigm of “The crone and the coquette” (Gawain 1317).
