The Tale of Genji. Murasaki Shikibu.

The Tale of Genji

Vintage Books, 1990. Softcover. Used - Very Good. Item #2506

In the eleventh century Murasaki Shikibu, a lady in the Heian court of Japan, wrote the world's first novel. But The Tale of Genji is no mere artifact. It is, rather, 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 and changeable as those imagined by Proust.
