Promises to become a classic. (The Drama Review)
From the Back Cover
Though Japan has a venerable anthologizing tradition of its own, Karen Brazell does what indigenous Japanese editors have never done: she incorporates in one authoritative volume all four of the major Japanese dramatic forms -- no, kyogen, kabuki, and bunraku puppet theater -- collecting the most celebrated works of the Japanese performance tradition. Organized by genre, each section features a rich selection of representative plays exploring each theatrical style and is prefaced by an illustrative essay covering a wide range of subjects, from stage direction to musical accompaniment. With both classic and new translations of more than thirty plays and scenes -- along with Brazell's detailed, historically rich supplementary material and copious illustrations -- no better anthology exists of the Japanese theatrical corpus.
