Japanese Aesthetics and Culture: A Reader
Nancy G. Hume
State University of New York Press, Jul 1, 1995 - History - 378 pages
This anthology is intended to supplement courses in which Japanese aesthetics and culture are taught. The essays assume little background knowledge; they do represent seminal thought in literary, cultural, and aesthetic criticism, and are well known to scholars for their clarity and straightforward exposition, making them especially useful to the Westerner who does not speak Japanese.
