Commentary
When the demon of Mt. ?eyama is asked for overnight lodgings by Minamoto no Yorimitsu (948-1021), he takes the form of “a wine drinking lad / Shuten D?ji” who does a dance and sings about how he has been forced to leave various mountain temples. He wears the mask of a youth and carries a staff entwined with vines.
See: Twelve Plays of the Noh and Ky?gen Theaters, ed. K. Brazell. pp. 150-167.
