Fatalism and Pathos in a Bunraku Puppet Play

Steve McCarty
Short audio to download, introduces Keisei Awa no Naruto, a Bunraku puppet play, followed by discussion questions for educational use. This 18th Century Chikamatsu play plumbs the depths of pathos with Sophoclean fatalism, leaving the listener wondering, among other things, why such a drama of 'mono no aware' is still performed as a puppet play. #傾城阿波の鳴門 #文楽 #人形浄瑠璃 #近松 #物の哀れ
