Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486401561, Paperback)
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), and many more.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:05:47 -0400)
These plays can be read for their great literary merit and also provide the reader with an understanding of a unique theatre art and important insights into the cultural, spiritual, and artistic traditions of Japan.
