Product Overview

Rakugo introduces the storytelling genre of Edo-style rakugo as performed around the turn of the twenty-first century, focusing on the performers'' image, training, and techniques and the art''s contexts and audiences. Brau argues that, while storytellers'' goal of making a hit with audiences sustains the art''s vitality, rakugo has come to represent something more than simply popular entertainment: it is also regarded as the cultural heritage to which some Japanese may turn in a nostalgic search for identity.
