The Tale of Genji book. Even if the owner of the historically granted nom de plume of Murasaki Shikibu hadn't been female, my vein of 'outside reading' would have sought out my definition of evidence she was there. It is the usual lack of objectivity I favor after so many centuries of venerated others pretending otherwise, but this is one thousand and more years ago, this is one of the most auspicious pieces of literature known thus far, and above all else, this is Japan.

This was the score for the first animated adaptation of The Tale of Genji, a sprawling piece of 11th century literature written by noblewoman Shikibu Murasaki, considered by many to be the first modern novel in recorded history. Isao Tomita later write his own symphonic adaptation of the story. The anime was directed by Gisaburō Sugii, and while it only covers a small part of the epic storyline, the score is highly ambitious. Scan courtesy of Kaleidophonics

The Tale of Genji" by Murasaki Shikibu - A famous Japanese novel written by a courtesan from the Heian Period (11th Century). The file here is the complete novel in EPUB and MOBI formats. Also included an introduction from another translation of the book by Royall Tyler to explain its background - EPUB & MOBI. Book Description: The original novel-a classic of Japanese and world literature and a stunningly beautiful story. Written in the eleventh century, this exquisite portrait of courtly life in medieval Japan is widely celebrated as the world’s first novel.

For Genji life had become an unbroken succession of reverses and afflictions. He must consider what to do next. If he went on pretending that nothing was amiss, then even worse things might lie ahead. He thought of the Suma coast. People of worth had once lived there, he was told, but now it was deserted save for the huts of fishermen, and even they were few. The alternative was worse, to go on living this public life, so to speak, with people streaming in and out of his house. Yet he would hate to leave, and affairs at court would continue to be much on his mind if he did leave. Even when they were separated for a day or two Genji was beside himself with worry and Murasaki’s gloom was beyond describing.
