Book, Original woodblock print (3) - Paper - "Ise monogatari" 伊勢物語 (Tales of Ise) and "Hyakunin isshu" 百人一首 (One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each) - Japan - Early 19th century

While the Tale of Genji is the bedrock of all Classical Japanese literature, The Tales of Ise came first. Written in episodic form, each short Ise chapter blends prose and poetry, in the themes of nature image and live longing.
While having no plot per se, it does roughly track the ages of a man, a ladies man, from very young to old age facing death.
If you like Japanese poetry, this is a must read. It is also an appetizer to the much longer Genji, written 50 years later.


Will be packaged with the utmost care and shipped by insured and registered post.
