- Classics Quarterly:
- Every three months join us for discussion of a classic work of literature. The 'classics' can seem intimidating, buried as they are under their reputation or held up to an impossible standard. Pedestals are a dangerous place for anything. Books need to be picked up, argued over and experienced. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about.
- Current Pick: Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, or the abridged version
- The 'Tale' is the first novel ever written, predating Don Quixote by centuries. Murasaki's epic is over 1,400 pages and rich in political and cultural detail and having an immeasurable influence on Japanese society. Due to the overwhelming scope of the work we offer the original English abridgement to readers who wish to have a sense of the work's power as well as the modern full translation for dedicated classics readers.
