The Tale of Genji

by

The Tale of Genji Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Murasaki Shikibu, a lady in the Heian court of Japan, is best known as the author of The Tale of Genji-written in the eleventh century and universally recognized as the greatest masterpiece of Japanese prose narrative and possibly the earliest true novel in the history of the world.

Synopsis:

This is a lively and astonishingly nuanced portrait of a refined society where every dalliance is an act of political consequence; a play of characters whose inner lives are as rich as those imagined by Proust.
