The Noh Theatre of Japan: With Complete Texts of 15 Classic Plays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This outstanding, scholarly work by an American-born authority on Chinese and Japanese art and literature, edited and translated by one of the most ambitious, influential, and innovative poets of the first half of the 20th century, provides Western readers with a valuable interpretation of an important aspect of Japanese culture. In addition to the complete translations of 15 plays, the text discusses historical background and development of the Noh theater.

Book News Annotation:

American-born Fenollosa (1853-1908) was an authority on Chinese and Japanese art and literature. After he died, his widow passed his papers to American poet Pound (1885-1972), also a scholar of Asian literature, who extracted from them his treatment of Noh theater, and added his own translation of 15 example plays. No index is provided. The 1917 edition was published by A.A. Knopf.
