Geisha Author Liza Dalby review â 7 review Geisha Author Liza Dalby W preface considers the geisha today as a vestige of tradition as Japan heads into the 21st centur.

Geisha Author Liza Dalby review â 7 review Geisha Author Liza Dalby In this classic best seller Liza Dalby the only non Japanese ever to have trained as a geisha offe. Note At the time I wrote this review I had not yet read Golden s Memoirs of a Geisha And I think I may be the only person in America who still hasn tOf course it s now a full week after AE aired The Secret Life of Geisha a show nominally based on Dalby s 1983 account of her time in Kyoto as the only non Japanese ever to train and serve as a geisha But I kept reading anyway The show s material came for the most part from the first four chapters of the book which cover a good deal of history and ignored the rest which is of a personal accounting of Dalby s time in Kyoto and her research in Tokyo and some of the smaller townsDalby s account is straightforward and precise though I don t want to give the impression there s nothing here that would give the reader a sense of personal experience far from it Dalby an anthropologist by nature as well as trade has a knack for being able to translate emotion into recognizable speech and get it all down on paper in an easy to understand formThe end result is compulsively readable half journal and half explication of the widely misunderstood world of geisha and the cultural context to which it belongs as important to an understanding of what geisha are as a study of the women themselves Dalby adresses the paradox that the women considered the most servile in Japan are also those with the most freedom and by the time the book is finished it s no longer a paradox really Dalby takes the reader through the world of geisha its history its context and most importantly the outside world s misconception of it All is explained in such a way as to be easily absorbed Not in the tradition of classic anthropological works at all Which is a good thingAbsorbing a uick read new stuff to be learned how can you go wrong

Geisha Author Liza Dalby review â 7 review Geisha Author Liza Dalby Rs an insider's look at the exclusive world of female companions to the Japanese male elite Her ne. This book was brilliantI loved how Liza wrote about the history of Geisha in Japan and every tiny detail of the things in their life Kimono and how it is worn why it is worn the way it is worn the colours that are worn and whyEvery detail is written about and it is definately one of the best books i ve read about concerning geisha and it was even written by a non JapaneseIt has aspects of her time as a geisha but it wasn t too autobiographical It forcussed mainly on geisha arts and customs itself without being too historicalShe put an intimate approach to the way she talked about the facts of geishaA very highly recommended read for anybody who is as fascinated by geisha as I am or just Japan or other cultures in generalI loved it
