Donald Keene is the foremost scholar of Japanese Culture. He could be considered a living national treasure, and I feel fortunate to be alive as his contemporary. His body of work is enormous, his influence immeasurable; his importance cannot be overstated. The material is relevent and perennial
Appreciations of Japanese Culture book. Donald Keene's book is enlightening and helping to understand Japanese society. I also liked the first chapter that discuss Japanese aesthetic. While western tend to prefer symmetry and sophistication in art and architecture, Japanese prefers irregularity and asymmetry. The book explains well the reasons of this contrast.
The book acquaints the reader with Japanese aesthetics, poetry, fiction, and theater, and offers Keene's appreciations of these topics. Based on lectures given at the New York Public Library, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the University of California, Los Angeles, the essays -though written by a renowned scholar- presuppose no knowledge of Japanese culture. Keene's deep learning, in fact, enables him to construct an overview as delightful to read as it is informative. His insights often illuminate aspects of traditional Japanese culture that endure today. Throughout the volume, Keene demonstrates that the rich artistic and social traditions of Japan can indeed be understood by readers from our culture. This book will enlighten anyone interested in Japanese literature and culture.
