The Tale of Genji, written one thousand years ago, is a masterpiece of Japanese literature, is often regarded as the best prose fiction in the language. Read, commented on, and reimagined by poets, scholars, dramatists, artists, and novelists, the tale has left a legacy as rich and reflective as the work itself. This sourcebook is the most comprehensive record of the reception of The Tale of Genji to date. It presents a range of landmark texts relating to the work during its first millennium, almost all of which are translated into English for the first time. An introduction prefaces each set of documents, situating them within the tradition of Japanese literature and cultural history. These texts provide a fascinating glimpse into Japanese views of literature, poetry, imperial politics, and the place of art and women in society. Selections include an imagined conversation among court ladies gossiping about their favorite characters and scenes in Genji; learned exegetical commentary; a vigorous debate over the morality of Genji; and an impassioned defense of Genji's ability to enhance Japan's standing among the twentieth century's community of nations. Taken together, these documents reflect Japan's fraught history with vernacular texts, particularly those written by women.

Guidance on how to turn those flashes of inspiration into finished pieces, from the author of Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind. Any writer may find himself or herself with an abundance of raw material, but it takes patience and care to turn this material into finished stories, essays, poems, novels, and memoirs. Referencing her own experiences both as a writer and as a student of Zen, Natalie provides insight into the struggles and demands of turning ideas into concrete form. Her guidance addresses ways to overcome writer’s block, deal with the fear of criticism and rejection, get the most from working with an editor, and improve one’s writing by reading accomplished authors. She communicates this with her characteristic humor and compassion, and a deep respect for writing as an act of celebration. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Natalie Goldberg, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Thunder and Lightning: Julian's Private Scrapbook, Part 4 Days nine, ten and eleven at Camp Walker. Adventure and high risk taking are the fare in this segment of camp life in the 1960s. A thunderstorm in the middle of the night provides challenges and opportunity, and two serious injuries change the course of events. A few new story developments and characters appear, and Julian gets much closer to reaching his goal than he realizes. Ninth Day: Second Monday the story begins just after midnight on the dock at Camp Walker. Sunday night, Robin and Jack snuck out of their respective camps to meet for an overnight tryst. They plan to greet the sunrise and slip back into their tents before anyone else is awake.The second week at the scout camp has begun; everyone will be back on task working on merit badges and advancing to the next rank. the mid morning activity break includes intramural water polo, where Mark Schaeffer is one of the coaches. Mark is scoutmaster of Troop Nine.Mark has been targeted by Geoff Staples, the sophisticated scout from California. Geoff was on duty at the special service yesterday. He was totally entranced by Mark when he led Troop Nine up to the building. On the spot he decided to add Mark to his considerable list of sexual conquests. He pursues his quest with vigor. Mark does not suspect Geoff's motives, and he has a few extremely awkward experiences.Mark's skill and purpose as a scoutmaster gets some attention; he deals with the problem of camp politics and relations with the other scoutmasters.Nick Harrison and Tom Dawson are the top officers in Troop Nine. With Julian's assistance, they have created a special sleeping arrangement in the troop supply tent, and disguised it to avoid detection by the scoutmaster. Their romance has brought purpose and happiness to Tom, who is determined to make amends for his years of bad behavior whenever he can; he follows through on his promise to Kurt, who he had forced to have sex a year and a half ago. This is accomplished, but it gives Kurt a new problem to solve. Tenth Day: Second Tuesday Yesterday afternoon's close order drill lesson gives subconscious minds an impetus to reveal inner drives; that phenomenon is experienced by Mark and Geoff in an oddly similar way.Geoff begins to clear his private trail, and discovers the secret romance of Jack and Robin.Danny suspects Geoff's intentions and takes it on himself to stand guard and protect his unsuspecting scoutmaster.Julian's natural ability to perceive others' needs makes him invaluable to both Mark and Sid as it had on Saturday for Nick and Tom. Julian's artistic skill evolves by leaps... portraits and personal qualities become his subject matter.Nick helps Kurt find a way to move forward.Nick and Tom have a rare afternoon free of responsibility or obligations, and they give Leonard a little vicarious pleasure.Leonard becomes discreetly supportive of several of Troop Nine's scouts and their personal needs.Alex mentors Clint during an overnight Backpacking merit badge hike. Eleventh Day: Second Wednesday Camp Walker is shaken by a thunderstorm shortly after midnight. Some are better prepared to meet the challenge than others. We get a peek into the world of Troop 419, and Geoff's natural leadership ability. the overnight hikers are caught out in the open. Alex and Clint are forced into an unexpected survival compromise.Danny is welcomed as a water polo strategist; he has his very best day yet at camp. He ends the day setting an even higher personal goal.Julian is given an unexpected promotion. His day is packed with variety and achievement.
