In 2019 W this course will be devoted to the study of The Tale of Genji (ca. 1008), Japans greatest work of narrative fiction and called by some the worlds first psychological novel. The entire text will be read over the course of the term, though students are allowed to read it translated into the language of their choice (English, modern Japanese, Chinese, Korean, German or Russianor the original classical Japanese!). This year, particular attention will be paid to illustrations to the Tale and how they serve as interpretations of the text.
