NOH as an independent and original art form—ultimately destined to supersedethe earlier Dengaku, Sarugaku and other song-dances—incorporates the mostsignificant elements of the former and especially of the Kusemai (tune dance).With it a new literary form may be said to have been created. The inventionof Noh is attributed to Kwannami Kiyotsugu (1333-1384), a distinguished actorand writer of Sarugaku and to his son Zeami Motokiyo (1363-1443), who developedand refined the art under the patronage of Yoshimitsu, the third Ashikagashogun. In addition to his dramatic activities, Zeami composed a number ofworks, the most important of which is called the Kwadensho (the Book of theFlower), or more properly, Fushi-kwadensho which he explained the nature and aesthetic principles governing Noh plays, and gave detailed instructionsconcerning the manner of composition, acting, direction, and productionof these dramas.
