In this book, Roger Keyes gathers together some two hundred and fifty woodblock prints (ukiyo-e) from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to recreate the moments in a Japanese male's journey through life. At times the artists portray their subjects simply and realistically; at times their themes are dramatic and even mythic. Keyes draws on his lifelong study of Japanese prints to provide cultural and technical details. Equally important, he draws on his own emotional responses to bring the subjects to life and into a relationship with the world of twentieth-century Western men.
