Synopsis: Often thought of as the world's first novel, and certainly the first major work of world literature to be written by a woman, "The Tale of Genji" was written by a court lady writing in the early 11th century. This work outlines the background to her work and analyzes the text.

Book Description: Murasaki Shikibu's The Tale of Genji, written in Japan in the early eleventh century, is acknowledged to be one of Japan's greatest literary achievements, and sometimes thought of as the world's first novel. This introduction to the Genji sketches the cultural background, offers detailed analysis of the text, discusses matters of language and style and ends by tracing the history of its reception through nine centuries of cultural change. This book will be useful for survey courses in Japanese and World Literature.
