El precepto roto (1906)
The protagonist is teacher Ushimatsu Segawa, also an eta. He hides his origins because of a promise he made to his father and to keep his status in society. The debate between standing up for his position or exposing his secret and feeling free is the central theme of the story. This is part of the Japanese literary movement of naturalism, where we constantly find opposing sides, like good and evil or tradition and modernity.
