Donald Keene (au). Praised as the chief interpreter of Japanese culture to the West, Donald Keene has long understood the key that literature holds to revealing a culture’s sensibility. He employs his prodigious wealth of knowledge, depth of critical insight, & gift for narrative to guide us through 1,000 years of a literary history that both defined the unique properties of Japanese prosody & prose, & produced some of its greatest works. Detailed textual examination of classic texts & many other works present new scholarship to the expert & allow the lay reader to understand & enjoy Keene’s narrative. “A great work of modern scholarship, as full & readable as ever. “
