    Artist Toshiaki Kato Without stories like these about the old days, though, how would we ever pass the time when there is nothing else to do Besides, among these lies there are certainly some plausibly touching scenes, convincingly told and yes, we know they are fictions, but even so we are moved and half drawn for no real reason to the pretty, suffering heroine We may disbelieve the blatantly impossible but still be amazed by magnificently contrived wonders, and although these pall on quiet, Artist Toshiaki Kato Without stories like these about the old days, though, how would we ever pass the time when there is nothing else to do Besides, among these lies there are certainly some plausibly touching scenes, convincingly told and yes, we know they are fictions, but even so we are moved and half drawn for no real reason to the pretty, suffering heroine We...

    I simply cannot believe this book is celebrating it s 1000th anniversary this year The characters are so complex, with such a human range of emotions There are so many characters, yet each one is unique She has so calculatedly dialed in each character, subtly conveying how close they come to her view of perfection Murasaki being at the top of this, and in my opinion Niou and others being at the bottom It is so easy to see how this book still influences literary styles in Japan today t I simply cannot believe this book is celebrating it s 1000th anniversary this year The characters are so complex, with such a human range of emotions There are so many characters, yet each one is unique She has so calculatedly dialed in each character, subtly conveying how close they come to her view of perfection Murasaki being at the top of this, and in my opinion Niou and others being at the bottom It is so easy to see how this book still influences literary styles in Japan today th...

    This novel is a challenge on many levels The biggest challenge of all is not resenting or even despising Genji himself It is best read in conjunction with The World of the Shining Prince by Ivan Morris to understand the environment 1,000 years ago at the end of the Heian Period Also read the Diary of Lady Murasaki I wouldn t bother taking on 1,090 pages of Genji without the assistance of these works, which are much easier to digest Also read ALL the footnotes When this book was writte This novel is a challenge on many levels The biggest challenge of all is not resenting or even despising Genji himself It is best read in conjunction with The World of the Shining Prince by Ivan Morris to understand the environment 1,000 years ago at the end of the Heian Period Also read the Diary of Lady Murasaki I wouldn t bother taking on 1,090 pages of G...
