GENJI AND HEIKE MCCULLOUGH PDF

The complete versions of both works are too long to be taught in one term, and this abridgement answers the need for a one-volume edition of both works suitable for use in survey courses in classical Japanese literature or world literature in translation and by the general reader daunted by the complete works. The translator has selected representative portions of the two texts with a view to shaping the abridgments into coherent, aesthetically acceptable wholes. This new translation focuses on important events in the life of its main character, Genji. In romanticized but essentially truthful fashion, The Tale of the Heike describes the late twelfth-century political intrigues and battlefield clashes that led to the eclipse of the Kyoto court and the establishment of a military government by the rival Minamotho Genji clan. Its underlying theme, the evanescence of worldly things, echoes some of the concerns of the Genji , but its language preserves many traces of oral composition, and its vigor and expansivelness contrast sharply with the pensive, elegant tone of the Genji. The book also includes an appendix, a glossary, a bibliography, and two maps.
