Автор: Mitford A. B. Название: Tales of Old Japan: Folklore, Fairy Tales, Ghost Stories and Legends of the Samurai ISBN: 0486440621 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780486440620 Издательство: Dover Рейтинг: Цена: 17180 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The member of a distinguished British literary family, A. B. Mitford traveled widely with his parents as a youth and lived in various European countries. From 1866-70, he served as an attache with the British legation at Edo (Tokyo) -- one of the first foreign diplomats to do so. During his brief stay there, Mitford lived through a period of dramatic and tumultuous change in Japanese history. A feudal nation on his arrival, Japan had entered the era of "Westernization" before he left some three years later. During that time, however, he quickly and thoroughly mastered the Japanese language and acted as an interpreter between the young Japanese Emperor and British royalty. Mitford's famous collection of classic tales (the first to appear in English) covers an engrossing array of subjects: grisly accounts of revenge, knightly exploits, ghost stories, fairy tales, folklore, a fascinating eyewitness account of a hara-kiri ceremony, gripping narratives of vampires and samurai, Buddhist sermons, and the plots of four Noh plays. A treasury, as well, of information on most aspects of Japanese life, with information on locales, customs, and characters, the illustrated volume delights as it entertains, chronicling acts of heroism, devotion, ruthlessness, and chivalry that illuminate the island nation's culture. "One of the first and in many ways still one of the best books on Japan." -- The Japanese Times. "An excellent introduction to Japanese literature." -- Mainichi Daily News.
