"Nanboku's plays are filled with scenes of extortion, killing and erotic entanglements. Dubbed 'kizewamono', the dramas portray people living at the bottom of Edo's hierarchical society, and they are written in a brisk, earthy idiom typical of the townspeople. Scenes unfold rapidly and various stage tricks add to the fun." (Sasaguchi Rei)
