Part prose, part verse, the visually-stunning No plays of Japan deal with such subjects as insanity, obsession and historical characters, and frequently have as their focal points demons, gods, and beautiful women. Among the 19 works and 15 summaries included here are Ukai (The Cormorant-Fisher), Hatsuyuki (Early Snow), and many more.
Arthur Waley (1889-1966) is highly regarded for his many translations of Chinese & Japanese literature.
