About the Author

Haruo Shirane is Assistant Professor in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University.


"A solid, well-constructed, cogently argued work, full of valuable insights, and informed by a consistent, sophisticated, highly persuasive point of view. It is worlds removed from early Western writers' impressionistic generalizations about the Genji." -Helen Craig McCullough ,University of California, Berkeley "A remarkable study. It is one of the most satisfying exegeses of a work of fiction that I can recall-one of those rare critical books that leave the reader with both enhanced appreciation of tis subject and ideas that continue to reverberate. Beautifully written, it should be accessible to an unusually wide audience. It will be landmark in Genji studies." -Marian Ury ,University of California, Davis
