Visioning Eternity: Aesthetics, Politics, and History in the Early Modern Noh Theater
Author: Looser, Thomas D.;
In one of the more remarkable public events of the Tokugawa world, the shogun responded to a deepening crisis in 1840s by sponsoring a huge, "once-in-a-generation" noh performance—the largest performance ever held.

This is the first Western language book on Edo period noh and its use by the shogun, an essential addition to the scholarship in Japanese theater and the cultural history of early modern Japan.
