These include Thomas Hare's Zeami's Style (Stanford University Press, 1986), Janet Goff 's Noh Drama and The Tale of Genji (Princeton University Press, 1991), Gerry Yokota-Murakami's The Formation of the Canon of Nö (Osaka University Press, 1977), Stephen Brown's Theatricalities of Power (Stanford University Press, 2001), and Etsuko Terasaki's Figures of Desire (University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies, 2002) and others.
