[Rental available after member registration]
From "The Tale of Genji" ... A Thousand-Year History of Infidelity and Sexual Love Her father, Fujitsubo, the wife of the former emperor, gave birth to Hikaru Genji's child and became a priest. The main character, Hikaru Genji, who is tormented by a sense of guilt, further expands his relationship with new women. Due to the weight of his sin, he leaves the capital and travels to Suma, but there he also begins a relationship with a new woman. In this book, which is the second part, after Hikaru Genji's return to the capital from Suma until his death, the love and sexual love in his prime and middle age are depicted with careful psychological and scene descriptions. The biggest excitement is the 35th chapter of the original book, "Kashiwagi". A scene in which Hikaru Genji finds out that the child born between Hikaru Genji and his wife, Onna Sannomiya, is actually not his own, but an illegitimate child. A cause and effect that befalls oneself in the same situation as the crime oneself once committed. How will Mariko Hayashi, a master of romance novels, portray Hikaru Genji's heart at that time? There is adultery, there is homosexuality, there is lolicon, there is love for a mature woman... A love story that is rare in the world, with all types of sexual love that are still relevant today. What is the outcome and how! That "The Tale of Genji" that everyone learned in school class was actually so radical and so interesting!
