Traditional Japanese Theater: An Anthology of Plays

Karen Brazell

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.
