The warfare and disruption that characterized the feudal era in Japanese history set the political and social context for this program. Similarities and differences between medieval Japan and medieval Europe - in political structure, bonds between warriors, and the importance of religion --- are discussed. Selections from essays in idleness, account to my Hut, and Noh drama demonstrate the resonance of Buddhism in this period's literature.
