Narrator Walter Covell cultivates an atmosphere of mystery and antiquity in his rendition of Kwaidan. Kwaidan is a collection of ancient Japanese legends. Hearing the tales of warriors, ghosts, demons, and other beings out loud allows an immediacy and intimacy that is not possible when simply reading to one's self. Walter Covell invites us into the world of narrative storytelling, and listeners will find themselves easily transported through time, delighted by the startling images and weird mythology of these wonderful tales.
Based on Japanese literature and foldlore, Kwaidan contains 17 stories. The story of Loichi, the blind biwa player who was called to perform for the dead; of Muso, the journeying priest who encountered a man eating goblin; of the samurai who outwitted the ghost of a dead man. All these plus 14 other spooly tales are included in this collection.
