Japanese artists, musicians, actors, and authors have written muchover the centuries about the creation, meaning, and appreciation ofvarious arts. Most of these works, however, are scattered amongcountless hard-to-find sources or make only a fleeting appearance inbooks devoted to other subjects. Compiled in this volume is a wealth oforiginal material on Japanese arts and culture from the prehistoric erato the Meiji Restoration (1867). These carefully selected sources, including many translated here for the first time, are placed in theirhistorical context and outfitted with brief commentaries, allowing thereader to make connections to larger concepts and values found inJapanese culture
