Royall Tyler

Here are three works from 14th c. Japan. MEITOKUKI narrates a failed rebellion against the shogun in 1391. OEIKI narrates another failed rebellion in 1399. The third work is HACHIMAN GUDOKUN (ca. 1304), an important treatise on the cult of Hachiman, an extremely significant deity, based at Iwashimizu, near Kyoto.
