"The Tale of Genji, completed at the beginning of the eleventh century by a lady of the Emperor's court, is the greatest work on Japanese literature and a classic that can stand with the great masterpieces of the world."

I included this book in AlterEgoZoe's Asian bookbox. I hope it finds its reader.

I've been aware of this book for decades, and considered reading it many times, but it just seems too daunting. Received it in the Asian bookbox, and am passing along to the next recipient.

Gratefully claimed from AlterEgoZoe's Far East/Asian bookbox.

I'm surprised that I don't already have one of these on my BC shelf: I've definitely had at least one copy in the past...

Monday, October 16, 2017: swiped this from the box to send to someone who has this book on her wishlist - not sure if she'll end up with the box or not, so...

A life of virtue on display,
