Overview
Two hundred and twenty dazzling tales from medieval Japan— tales that welcome us into a fabulous, faraway world populated by saints, scoundrels, ghosts, magical healers, and a vast assortment of deities and demons. Stories of miracles, visions of hell, jokes, fables, and legends, these tales reflect the Japanese worldview during a classic period in Japanese civilization. They ably balance the lyrical and the dramatic, the ribald and the profound, offering a window into a long vanished culture.
