Rethinking Sorrow
Revelatory Tales of Late Medieval Japan
by Margaret Helen Childs

Winner of the 1991 Japan-United States Friendship Commission Prize for the Translation of Japanese Literature  

“Scholarly, useful, and entertaining, and it belongs on textbook order forms as well as on the shelves of specialists.”
Janet R. Goodwin in Monumenta Nipponica
 

“In addition to revealing much about life, literature, and religious practices in medieval Japan, these tales are fun to read, and they provide fresh, new material for Japanese literature courses taught in English.”
Karen Brazell, Cornell University
