9780791424001: Japanese Aesthetics and Culture (Suny Series in Asian Studies Development) (Suny Series, Asian Studies Development)

This anthology is intended to supplement courses in which Japanese aesthetics and culture are taught. The essays assume little background knowledge; they do represent seminal thought in literary, cultural, and aesthetic criticism, and are well known to scholars for their clarity and straightforward exposition, making them especially useful to the Westerner who does not speak Japanese.

Some of the essays provide a general introduction to the basic theories of Japanese aesthetics, others deal with poetry and theater, and a third group discusses cultural phenomena directly related to classic Japanese literature. The text includes notes on historical periods and language, a glossary of the most significant literary and aesthetic vocabulary, and an extensive, annotated bibliography that guides the reader to primary materials, critical studies, general histories, anthologies, encyclopedias, and lists of films and audio-visual materials.

"I like the range and variety of essays, drawn from the best authorities in the field, covering all of the fundamental facets of Japanese aesthetics and culture. It is an invaluable sourcebook for students and teachers of Japanese studies." -- John W. Conner, Leeward Community College, Honolulu
