Donald Keene, Royall Tyler. Donald Keene was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 18, 1922. In 1794 Tyler married Mary Palmer, the daughter of the family with whom he had resided during the time of Shays's Rebellion. He was a child prodigy and entered Columbia University on scholarship in 1938 at the age of 16. He received a bachelor's degree in 1942, a master's degree in 1947, and a doctoral degree in 1951 from Columbia. Concurrent with his civic career, Royall Tyler enjoyed another vocation. A prolific writer, particularly of drama, Tyler saw his first play, The Contrast, produced in 1787.

The collection was originally published in 1970. There are only five overlaps with the other important No play collection, by Royall Tyler in Penguin Classics, made in 1992.

This is an icy, quiet form of theatre. Everything is deliberate, almost painfully slow, and micro performed. The imagery floats and the characters talk as if in a dream. The collection was originally published in 1970. Oct 19, 2016 Daniel rated it liked it.

I have been studying the Noh drama in printed English translations, and find the translations in this volume to be quite good. The selection is tasteful, and the format is very accessible. It is surprising to me that there is still so little in the way of Noh performances in the US, and I live in a large metropolitan area where there is a considerable Japanese-American community. Thus, I have to content myself with English translations in books. Some more recent Noh translations also contain elaborate stage directions, something lacking in the Keene volume. Thus, the Keene collection is of value primarily for the literary interest of the plays. Nonetheless I highly recommend it.

These plays are very beautiful; even though it must be amazing to understand the Japanese, which I certainly don't, I still get so much out of these Buddhist-tinged plays just having read the English and watching a video. When the plays climax at the end, and the chorus is chanting the main character's cathartic lines--I've seen it on You-tube--I think it's a high point of world drama. Avant-garde drama of today has nothing on the Noh. I read this edition when I was a boy. Again. Very beautiful

I have seen a good number of Noh plays. They were fascinating to me precisely because it was so hard to figure out what was transpiring on stage (most Japanese have a hard time understanding the chanted medieval Japanese as well) and the minimal and stylized movements are so different from Western theater traditions.
