From the Introduction: "Japanese actors are masters of absolute realism." "Performances in Japan last eight hours, and inc idents are allowed the time they would take in real life". "In order to give a fair idea of the Japanese drama, I have selected scenes which to my mind are intensely thrilling and have an amount of sensationalism and horror of which we have never been aware. My aim has been to show what the Japanese theatre really is, namely, a mixture of brutality, delicate poetry, and wonderfully beautiful stage pictures and scenery".
