This book is a comprehensive study of Chinese figures and motifs in medieval Japanese noh theater. It explores the images of China and their implications constructed in the so-called "karagoto-mono" (Chinese plays) that reflect the artistic preferences, as well as the cultural and sociopolitical sentiments towards China held by Muromachi noh artists and audiences.
Leo Shingchi Yip is associate professor of Japanese studies at Gettysburg College.
