I read the Japanese legend of The Beginning of the World. There was chaos everywhere, and the universe seemed confused before the earth was created. There was light and noise all of a sudden, and then the earth was created. Then the gods appeared. There were many gods that had many roles. The story mostly described each god. It would say their name and when they were created.
One phrase the story used was “chaos, unimaginably limitless.” I like this because it shows how the universe was before it was created, according to this legend. The story used the word, “Medusa-like” to describe that it went all directions. The syntax was not very good. There was not a variety of sentence structure, and most sentences were very long. The main idea was to describe the Japanese gods and how they believe the earth was built. This story helps me understand Japanese culture because it describes what they believe. It also uses Japanese names and gods.
