Abstract

could have been easily avoided. The author surely knows that it was written by Zeami's son Motoyoshi (who of course relied heavily on the remembrance of his father's talks) and not by the master himself. This may seem only a tiny distinction, but it can raise serious interpretive problems when repeatedly quoted in argumentative chains (pp. 12, 16, 43, 54, 95). Notwithstanding these critical observations, I delighted in reading the book and wish to acknowledge its refreshing approach, its enlightening insights, and its inspiring comments on certain aspects of the nö that have too long been neglected by specialists.
