The No Plays of Japan: An Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Part prose, part verse, the visually stunning No plays of Japan deal with such subjects as insanity, obsession and historical characters, and frequently have as their focal points demons, gods, and beautiful women. Among the 19 works and 15 summaries included here are Ukai (The Cormorant-Fisher), Hatsuyuki (Early Snow), as well as a farcical interlude, or kyogen, titled The Bird-Catcher in Hell. A unique introduction for Western theater-goers to classic Japanese drama.

Book News Annotation:

**** Reprint of the Knopf classic originally published in 1922 and cited in BCL3.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
