A Guide To Noh by P.G. O'Neill
A collection of summaries of the approximately 240 plays which make up the repertories of the five schools of Noh, this book is intended primarily for those who are able to see Noh plays but who, either through language difficulties or lack of background, are unable to appreciate them in the same way as Japanese audience members.
The development of the action falls into place with these story outlines and it becomes possible to better appreciate the elements of song and dance.
A brief introduction to Noh, a listing of Noh theatres, and a short bibiliography are included.
