    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBII liked the author's approach to the culture and the people who agreed to help her learn about the profession I appreciated that she wrote not only about Kyoto However I found some of her conclusions too hastily drawn for exam

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBII've been an enthusiast of Japan and the Japanese culture since a young age so Geisha by Liza Dalby was perhaps unsurprisingly an incredibly engaging and illuminating read for me I knew a lot of the information she addressed going in but many of the technical aspects of the lifestyle and the traditions she discussed were new to me It was also one of my first encounters with anthropological literature which turned out to be a great mixture of raw informative and personal accounts Undeniably geisha is a subject that has been greatly misconceived by the American culture since World War II Many today still believe that they are merely glorified prostitutes; a subject that Liza thoroughly addresses in her book with pictures and descriptions of practices between the two From the greatly discussed mizuage that appears in Arthur Golden's book Memoirs of A Geisha to the sisterhood apparent in geisha houses; from the rituals and tea ceremonies to th

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBIThis book was amazing I learned so many new things and I loved all of the pictures Liza Dalby brings so much information and personal experience to this anthropological study of Geisha It makes me wish that I could have also experienced what she was able to Highly recommend if you are at all interested in this subject

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBILike most other readers I'm guessing I'd read Memoirs of a Geisha before I ever heard of this book I actually stumbled upon this in a used bookstore there was a 2 for 1 sale I figured that this looked interesting and it came home with me as my free book I think this is best to read after Memoirs of a Geisha because then potential mismatches of culture in the fictional account won't bother you so much but you will be intrigued to learn Dalby does a great job of blending Japanese culture personal experience and interviews into a compelling portrait of a very intriguing class of Japanese women It's hard to come away from the book with the same mindset you entered it with from either a Japanese or Western perspective if Dalby's explanation of the geisha as a somewhat mysterious phenomenon in Japan itself is trueClear readable and interesting nonfiction

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBIThis 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

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBILots of great information but I didn't really like how Dalby writes Sometimes it almost seems like she is prejudiced toward WesternersLike many of the other reviews say a better editor would have been beneficial because there are many many typos throughout the book Dalby even gets the capital of Japan wrong once in the feudal era tooThere's lots of information here about geisha but I

    Kindle Liza Dalby ´ Geisha ePUB · ´ geisha ebok, Geisha MOBI Geisha was uite the interesting book I'd had only heard of them in an anime a few years back but they are such an intresting concept and of course individualsThe book itself was informative and very comprehensible although it strongly focused on Dalby's experience within the Japanese geisha communities I do feel like it was educational enough about the topic but the feeling that I didn't get enough information about them keeps nagging at meThe content was fascinating and geisha life sounds like a tale from another world to Western ears I totally understand and agree on the fact that the social role of the Geishas would be impossible to implement the same way in the West
