This interesting book offers the most comprehensive history of the reception of the "Genji"
[A] rich anthology.
A thought-provoking study of a seminal work.
(Melinda Takeuchi Impressions
Crossing the premodern-modern divide, this collaborative work provides a comprehensive history of the reception, interpretation, and adaptation of the Genji. Particularly laudable is the book's attention to visual transfigurations of the text. It leaves one amazed by the phenomenon that is the Genji across time.
