1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Charles on November 17, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A brilliant analysis of medieval Japanese esthetics, full of insights and surprises.

Four chapters: The aesthetic structure of waka; The metaphysical background of the theory of Noh; The Way of Tea: An art of spatial awareness; and Haiku: an existential event. Part Two has translations of Maigetsusho (on waka); Zeami's Nine Stages; The Nambo Roku (re Rikyu); and The Red Booklet(re Basho).

The section on Zeami and on spatial awareness in the tea ceremony are particularly good.

This should be read in conjunction with Izutsu's Toward of Philosophy of Zen Buddhism.

This book is extremely well written and informative for those interested in classical Japansese aesthetics. It is one of the best reference books available on the subject.
