The Tale of Genji (Genji monogatari) is the epic masterpiece of Japanese prose literature written in the eleventh century by the court lady Murasaki Shikibu (active c.1000). This romantic waka (Japanese poem) narrates the life and loves of Prince Genji and two generations of his descendents. It found its greatest visual expression in emakimono (illustrated handscrolls) with the most often discussed example being the Genji Monogatari Emakidating from about 1130. The Tale of Genji was also illustrated, sometimes with accompanying text, in numerous albums, fans, books, screens, and hanging scrolls.
