9780231108737: Traditional Japanese Theater

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.

Book Description:

The first book of its kind: a collection of the most important genres of Japanese performance--noh, kyogen, kabuki, and puppet theater--in one comprehensive, authoritative volume.

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.
