About this Book

Here are two hundred and twenty dazzling tales from medieval Japan, tales that welcome us into a fabulous, faraway world populated by saints and scoundrels, ghosts and magical healers, and a vast assortment of deities and demons. Stories of miracles, visions of hell, jokes, fables, and legends, these tales reflect the Japanese worldview during a classic period in Japanese civilization. Masterfully edited and translated by the acclaimed translator of "The Tale of Genji", these stories ably balance and the lyrical and the dramatic, the ribald and the profound, offering a window into a long-vanished though perennially fascinating culture.
