Tales of Old Japan
A.B. Mitford (au); Carmen Blacker (in). Originally published in 1871, this was the first collection of Japanese popular stories to appear in English & is a classic among writings from Japan. The work covers the genres of ghost story, fairy tale, folklore, & tales of the samurai. Here you will find mysterious No Plays, a fascinating eyewitness account of a hara-kiri (suicide) ceremony by candlelight, & tales of vampires & other creatures of superstition -- magic cats, foxes & badgers. Of the samurai genre, Mitford presents “The 47 Ronins” alongside wonderful stories of relentless revenge, furious sword fights, vile treachery, staunch loyalty, & vagabond life. This book, with traditional Japanese illustrations, is a treasury of information on places, customs & characters that illuminates Japanese culture.
