This chapter begins with the libretto of The White Fox, Okakura Tenshin's last creative experiment, throwing out a few questions on love and friendship. It looks at the masculinities of Rabindranath Tagore and Okakura, in their very different life practices and relationships with women and other men, teasing out a few problems leading to the elusive dynamics of masculinity. It also examines homosociality and the modalities of friendship. Finally, it examines their foreign friends and the effect of war on their relationships.
