Written in the eleventh century, this exquisite portrait of courtly life in medieval Japan is widely celebrated as the world's first novel—and it is certainly one of its finest. Genji, the Shining Prince, is the son of an emperor. He is a passionate character whose tempestuous nature, family circumstances, love affairs, alliances, and shifting political fortunes form the core of this magnificent epic.

Royall Tyler's superior translation is detailed, poetic, and true to the Japanese original while allowing the English reader to appreciate its timeless beauty. Supplemented with detailed notes, glossaries, character lists, and a chronology to help the reader navigate the multigenerational narrative, this comprehensive edition presents this ancient tale in the grand style that it deserves.
