Bethe, Monica; Brazell, Karen
"A thoroughly scholarly, very revealing work which is a major contribution to drama study on Japan . . . . All arts librarians ought to have it." --The Japan Times. A comprehensive analysis of the fundamentals of noh dance, its structure and patterns, and their correlation to music, text, costumes and props. Originally published in three interconnected volumes, it elucidates the inner workings of noh dance on many levels. Monumenta Nipponica calls it "a landmark in English language noh studies."
