Description
A cornerstone of Japanese literature, this 14th-century epic tells the story of the struggle between the Taira and Minamoto clans. Among the unforgettable characters are the ruthless warlord Kiyomori; Hotoke, the beautiful young dancer who renounces wealth and fame to follow her conscience; Shigemori, the tyrant's righteous son; and Yoshitsune, the daring commander who defeats the enemy in battle after battle, only to be condemned by his powerful brother. The translator of The Tale of Genji includes footnotes to clarify cultural and historical references, as well as a character glossary, maps, genealogies, and several classic illustrations from Japanese editions of the Heike.
