Collected works of Horigami Ken

photo-1

I have recently purchased Horigami Ken’s Collected Works on Noh. Horigami, editor of  the now discontinued Nogaku Journal, is one of the few Japanese Noh critics who actually say upfront what they want to say. I very much appreciate his lucid performance reviews and insightful analysis of various more or less controversial aspects of the Noh world. I suggest this book to all those who are interested not only in the artistic and aesthetic face of Noh, but also in its contemporary cultural (i.e. political and economic) context.
