This volume is organized to roughly follow the order of events presented in the Kakuichi-bon variant of the Heike. The essays and translations focus on a series of major events from the Heike: Kiyomori’s rise (the “Giō” cycle of plays); Yoshinaka’s push to the capital; the flight of the Heike and the battle of Ichi-no-tani; and the aftermath of the war.
