A great way to be absorbed in early Japanese culture!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon (Translations from the Asian Classics) (Paperback)
After reading The Pillow Book for a school assignment, I realized that I'd thoroughly enjoyed it. At first I thought, "What a pain in the butt! I have to read this boring thing." But as I got deeper and deeper into the book it enthralled me more and more. You can experience early Japanese culture at its best. I would reccommend this book to anyone who wants a taste of Japanese culture. I found it a little hard to read, but then I am only a ninth grader. This is a wonderful reading experience, and I admire Ivan Morris' excellence with translation of the Japanese language.
