Product Description

Review

"[A] handsome addition to the Cahier series. . . . The stories are presented with a restraint well suited to the dignified aesthetic of Noh theatre, but they can be daring in their inclusion of details and turns of phrase that come not from the original text so much as from images that the texts have suggested to Griffiths."--Jay Rubin "Times Literary Supplement "

By Eleanor TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 13 Feb. 2014
Format: Paperback
In this beautiful pamphlet, Paul Griffiths gives us eleven stories drawn from noh, a highly stylized form of Japanese drama. Griffiths's adaptations are interspersed with John L. Trans's photographs of deserted Japanese shopping arcades. The result is a varied collection of dreamlike episodes in which past and present, living and dead mingle.

Format: Paperback
I was a bit afraid about reading this book that I would not be intelligent enough to understand it, and also because I had never read anything like it before, but what I found were lots of little `bonsai` stories. Perfectly formed, and everything there, but in beautiful miniature style. Every word counts, and each story is a little gem, and every one a surprise as to how it would end. After reading it, in that half-life between waking and sleeping, I was haunted by spirits dancing to get their colourful cloaks back, pillows which tell the future, a couple giving their very last to give hospitality to strangers and being richly rewarded, and smiling at warriors who give up their battles as domesticity appeals more than glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimations of immortality 30 May 2016
By Matthew Gurewitsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Evanescent, exquisitely crafted distillations of stories from the Noh theater, in which the flicker of an eyelash can overturn a world. Experiencing Noh in the theater, Westerners I know (myself included) have felt mystified, excluded, fascinated, yet bored. Griffiths supplies the suggestion, speculation, and transcendental spiritual fantasy we must be missing.
