Floating World in Japanese Fiction (2nd ed.)
Howard Hibbett (au). The Japan of the “Floating World” is one of the most fascinating & important eras in the history of Asian art & culture. The fiction of this time, called ukiyo-zoshi or “Tales of the Floating World,” brought to life a complex world of rakish shopkeepers, teahouse women, celebrated actors, & ordinary townspeople -- all obsessed with the pursuit of pleasure that characterized Genroku culture. This volume explores the period from 3 points of view. Hibbett chronicles the historical & social influences of the age. Presents the works of ukiyo-zoshi writer Kiseki. Offers his translation of “The Woman Who Spent Her Life in Love” by Saikaku, the master of the genre. The stories in this book are elemental to an understanding of Japanese lit. & Japan itself. Ill.
