The 11th century epic The Tale of Genji is rightly considered to be one of the finest works of writing and is, according to Nobel laureate Yasunari Kawabata, the highest pinnacle of Japanese literature. Filled with sparkling poetry and imaginative wordplay, it follows the myriad adventures of Genji, an illegitimate son of the Emperor, blessed with great beauty and talent.
