Early Modern Japanese Literature: An Anthology, 1600-1900 written by Haruo Shirane

 

Early Modern Japanese Literature: An Anthology, 1600-1900 written by Haruo Shirane

Overview:

Early Modern Japanese Literature introduces English readers to an unprecedented range of prose fiction genres, including dangibon (satiric sermons), kibyoshi (satiric picture books), sharebon (books of wit and fashion), yomihon (reading books), kokkeibon (books of humor), gokan (bound books), and ninjobon (books of romance and sentiment). The anthology offers a rich array of poetry - waka, haiku, senryu, kyoka, kyoshi - and eleven plays that range from contemporary domestic drama to historical plays and from early puppet theater to nineteenth century kabuki. The collection also features more than two hundred woodblock prints that accompanied the original texts and dramas.

Synopsis:

This unique anthology is the first representative collection of Japanese literature from one of the most creative periods in Japanese culture, known variously as the Edo or the Tokugawa. It includes a wide range of fiction, poetry, and drama, and also essays, literary criticism, folk stories, and other noncanonical works with a number of new translations.
