Seeds in the Heart: Japanese Literature from Earliest Times to the Late Sixteenth Century written by Donald Keene

 

Seeds in the Heart: Japanese Literature from Earliest Times to the Late Sixteenth Century written by Donald Keene

Overview:

Donald Keene employs his prodigious wealth of knowledge, critical insight, and narrative aplomb to guide readers through the first nine hundred years of Japanese literature -- a period that not only defined the unique properties of Japanese prosody and prose but also produced some of its greatest works. Covering courtly fiction, Buddhist writings, war tales, diaries, poems, and more, Seeds in the Heart explores a vast and variegated treasury of writings. Detailed textual examinations of classic texts -- from the Kojiki to The Tale of Genji, from The Pillow Book of Sei Sh˘nagon to Zeami's N˘ plays -- allow students, lay readers, and scholars a new understanding and enjoyment of this great literature.

During the nine hundred years covered here . . . literature was primarily an aristocratic pursuit. . . . The elegance and urbanity of Keene´s style suit this material.
