About This Book

This book is a puppet play which represents major Asian traditions. A translation of the eighteenth-century Japanese drama.

Chushingura (TheTreasury of Loval Retainers), also known as the story of the Forty-Six (or Forty-Seven) Ronin, is the most famous and perennially popular of all Japanese dramas. Written as a puppet play, it is now better known through Kabuki theater performances.

Donald Keene's translation of the original text is presented here with a new preface, and an introduction and notes to aid readers in their comprehension and enjoyment of the play.
