Another Stage: Kanze Nobumitsu and the Late Muromachi Noh Theater

This first book-length study of Kanze Kojiro Nobumitsu (1435-1516) provides a detailed analysis of the late Muromachi noh practitioner and his work and concludes with a critique of the furyu noh category in present-day noh discourse. By highlighting the significance of Nobumitsu as well as the noh plays created in his time, Lim introduces an important practitioner into the English language scholarship and provides a new perspective from which the canon can be debated.
