The set of poems describe the life and hardships of a fictional 17th century Samurai, Lord Nyo, and his wife Lady Nyo. Lord Nyo is away supporting his daimyo, Lord Mori, and Lady Nyo waits for him. This separation leads to tension between the two which is resolved with the help of a Tengu in an extraordinary manner.
The book also contains beautiful illustrations. My favorite is the author’s painting of the Tengu dressed in a brilliant yellow, red and blue robe on page 37. A photograph by Nick Nicholson on page 13 with red drooping leaves and thin black branches is also outstanding.
