April Readalong: ‘The Tale of Genji’ by Murasaki Shikibu


The first day of April is already upon us, and that means that the readalong for The Tale of Genji begins today! Anyone and everyone is welcome to join Rowena, me and everyone else who decided to participate at any point you like during the month. Even if you have already read this book in the past, we would still be delighted to see your comments and/or impressions on it. I will be using the unabridged Penguin Classics edition, translated by Royall Tyler, since it includes a lot of useful notes as well, but feel free to use any edition you can get your hands on more easily 🙂

I estimate this book will take up my entire reading for April, so I hope I will be able to finish all of it on time! I might be posting weekly updates so as to keep track of my progress.
