   schema:description "A comprehensive study of the celebrated Japanese tea master Rikyu (1522-91). Rikyu's tea is considered as an important political as well as a socio-religious ritual in response to the dramatic changes taking place in the country at large: the hundred-year civil war--Sengoku or Warring States period--was finally coming to an end and the process of political unification under the strong military leadership of Oda Nobunaga (1534-82) and Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-98) had begun. A key focus on the book is the author's research into why Rikyu's tragic suicide was a necessary outcome of the emerging conflict between ritual, art, and politics. The study also provides insights into a sixteenth-century Japanese sense of beauty commonly called wabi, as well as insight into what links Rikyu's wabi tea with Zen Buddhism and ultimately to ritual and the state."@en ;
