Tales of the Samurai by James S.De Benneville
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally published in 1915, a masterful retelling of the great Japanese classic Oguri Hangwan Ichidaiki, the l5th century saga that follows the life of Sukeshige, the young Lord of Oguri, as he struggles to restore the fortunes of his noble family amidst the intrigues and battles of the turbulent Askikaga era. An engrossing saga which embodies all the Samurai virtues - skill in martial arts, the code, the exploits, etc. - in a Japanese tale which has survived through the centuries virtually unchanged. James S. de Benneville was an American author, translator and scholar long resident in Japan and well known for his superb rendition of Japan's great historic literary classics.
