    I didn t find the Noh plays in this volume very compelling From his Chinese translations, I didn t expect Pound s translations of the Noh plays to be particularly true to the original works, but I did expect the language to be much interesting This short book of 160 pages read like 400 pages I suspect a part of the problem is that a short, highly ritualized art form like Noh typically requires a highly compact, symbolic language With such few words, they carry much weight But Pound s translat [...]

    This is a New Directions reprint under a new title of the 1916 i.e 1917 Noh or Accomplishment , with some back matter, including Fenollosa s musical notation to Hagoromo and Pound s note about it, omitted, but with W B Yeats Introduction to the 1916Certain Noble Plays of Japan , which did not appear in Noh , restored as an appendix.

    Includes an introduction, a number of Noh plays with introductions and notes, and a synopsis of plays, notes on music, and care and selection of costumes Originally published in 1917, this version came out in 1959.

    I thought it was very interesting, but because you cannot get the whole understanding because it s primarily dancing I will only give it 3 stars.
