Über diesen Titel:
Über den Autor: Kisai was certainly a master storyteller and his sense of the dramatic value in ending a narrative section at precisely the right moment to heighten an important point in the mind of the listener is exhibited throughout. Although Kisai refrains from doing so, it was at such moments that the preacher might have broken into a moral discourse or urged his audience to ponder the significance of what they had just heard. On a much more mundane level, it must have been at precisely these junctures, when the crowds were most anxious to know what comes next, that the professional storyteller made his pitch and had his collector pass the hat around before proceeding with the narrative.
It should be remembered that, whereas the prophetic tales have their pious and devotional aspect, Kisai's version is basically designed for popular entertainment and should ideally be recited by a professional raconteur.
