Yoshimasa and the Silver Pavillion: The Creation of the Soul of Japan

Donald Keene

Donald Keene, Japanese history and culture supremo has produced a slim and elegant volume that drips with wisdom about Japan’s cultural development, and most especially, the fitful way the country has digested its immense borrowings from China.
It is also, unsurprisingly since this is Keene, an unusually lucid treatment of Japanese aesthetics down to this day.
