Anyone wishing to sample readable translations from noh, kyogen, and kabuki may read this volume with profit and delight, but it is simply indispensable for reconstructing, to the extent possible, the respective canons of these dramatic forms in English translation.…[Sadler's] literary style is elegant, robust, and of another age; making for a rare combination of gifts."—Prof. Paul S. Atkins, from the foreword

Nothing reflects the beauty of life as much as Japanese theater. It is here that reality is held suspended and emptiness can fill the mind through words, music, dance, and mysticism. A.L. Sadler translates the mysteries of Noh, Kyogen, and Kabuki in his groundbreaking book, Japanese Plays. A seminal classic in its time, it provides a cross section of Japanese theater that gives the reader a sampler of its beauty and power. The end result found in Japanese Plays is a wonderful selection of classic Japanese dramatic literature sure to enlighten and delight.
