Written centuries before the time of Shakespeare and even Chaucer, The Tale of Genji marks the birth of the novel-and after more than a millennium, th is seminal work continues to enchant readers throughout the world. Lady Mur asaki Shikibu and her tale's hero, Prince Genji, have had an unmatched infl uence on Japanese culture. Prince Genji manifests what was to become an ima ge of the ideal Heian era courtier; gentle and passionate. Genji is also a master poet, dancer, musician and painter. The Tale of Genji follows Prince Genji through his many loves, and varied passions. This book has influence d not only generations of courtiers and samurai of the distant past, but ar tists and painters even in modern times-episodes in the tale have been inco rporated into the design of kimonos and handicrafts, and the four-line poem s called waka which dance throughout this work have earned it a place as a classic text in the study of poetry. This version by Kencho Suematsu was the first-ever translation in English. Condensed, it's a quarter length of the unabridged text, making it perfect for readers with limited time.
