Traditional Japanese Theater : An Anthology of Plays Paperback / softback

Edited by Karen Brazell

Part of the Translations from the Asian Classics series

Description

This is a collection of the most important genres of Japanese performance-noh, kyogen, kabuki, and bamrili puppet theater-in one comprehensive, authoritative volume. Organized by genre, each section features a rich selection of representative plays and explorations into each theatrical style and is prefaced by an illustrative essay covering a wide range of subjects, from stage direction to musical accompaniment.

With 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 for students of this most fascinating and diverse dramatic tradition.
