Book by Sansom, G. B., Pinnington, Noel
  • Anyone interested in or studying Japanese history/literature/culture should read this book. It contains a series of short essays (zuihitsu) and reads much like Sei Shonagon's Pillow Book. These essays range from Kenko's moral opinions about various aspects of life to his aesthetic tastes and thoughts about beauty. These essays are Kenko's opinion, yet they can be taken as the opinions of Japan's society at the time of the writing. Therefore there is a great deal of interesting cultural information and meaning behind Kenko's words. So if you are interested in Japanese Buddhism or religion, this book's a must.
    If you are interested in Japanese aesthetics- aware: the idea that beauty is transient/fleeting, wabi-sabi: by becoming aged and through use, an object's history and experience bestow upon it greater value than an object that is new, the idea that uncertainty/non-uniformity/ and incompletion can inspire imagination- by all means read this.

  • Easy to read yet mentally challenging, beautifully written yet familiar in style. The Tsurezuregusa is a classic of Japanese literature. This series of essays written by a 14th-century Buddhist priest and poet in Kyoto has had an enormous impact on Japanese culture, particularly in its elegant discussions about how to best appreciate the beauty of things. Reading the Tsurezuregusa, you are able to make friends with Kenko himself, and Kenko is a good friend indeed. Donald Keene's translation is a literary gem in its own right. You simply must read this book.

  • The book was in great condition when I received it. It was not the same as pictured because it had no specific cover art. Regardless, I enjoyed this book.

  • Excellent pieces by a japanese poet and buddhist monk. Donald Keene is a very good translator.

  • Each of these essays give you something to think about for the rest of however long you think about things. For me it is an essay at a time, with adequate time to reflect.

  • Philosophical discussions of living in the royal courts of Japan in the 1330's.

  • Item came as advertised.

  • DUE TO THE FACT THAT I HAVE YET TO RECIEVE THIS BOOK THAT I ORDERED ONE MONTH AGO, I GIVE 5 STARS TO THE PERFECT EXERCISE OF THEIR IDLENESS. THEY ALSO MANNAGED TO REMOVE THIS ITEM FROM THE LIST OF "WHERE IS MY STUFF" SO THAT I CANNOT TRACE MY CLAIM. 5 MORE STARS!
