About this title:

Synopsis: This selection of over two hundred tales from medieval Japan includes stories of miracles, visions of hell, jokes, fables, and legends from history

Review: "Few readers who start the book will be able to resist going through to the end."
--The New York Times

"Enchanting. . . . The stories are variously witty, allegorical, mystical, gross, funny, and enigmatic . . . Tyler provides a helpful introduction, and his poised translations are something of a masterpiece."
--Publishers Weekly

"Royall Tyler's translations are nothing short of superb--crisp, restrained, ably balancing the ribald and the profound. The results make available masterpieces from five centuries of Japanese literature. This book is a stellar addition to Pantheon's "outstanding folklore series.""
--Booklist

"Fresh, imaginative, and uniquely organized . . . told in a style clear, homey, and unpretentious, [they] yield great pleasure."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Translated with exceptional skill, this is a perfect example of scholarship concealing scholarship. Tyler has made these tales read gracefully and effortlessly. He writes in a lively and colloquial style that effectively captures the spirit of the originals without being jarringly modern. This is an important book."
--Donald Keene, Shincho Professor of Japanese, Columbia University
