Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
Readers of medieval Japanese literature have long been captivated by its romance and philosophy. In this volume, two acclaimed thirteenth century classics, "The Ten Foot Square Hut" and "Tales of the Heike, " are presented in translation.
"The Ten Foot Square Hut" offers the memorable reflections of a recluse who retired from a world filled with violent contrasts and cataclysms. "Tales of the Heike" describes the rise and fall of the Heike clan. Though written 700 years ago, both classics offer a timeless message.
