About this item

In 2012 in the British Library, Moretti ran across a Japanese book from the Edo period (1600-1868) , a children's version of the many retellings of the 10th-century courtly tale . In itself it is not a canonical text nor particularly extraordinary product of early Japanese publishing industry, she says, but she explores a number of questions that her examination of it prompted. She presents a diplomatic transcript and translation, and discusses such matters as an early modern Japanese equivalent to European chapbooks, questions of genre, the interplay of text and image, and early modern Japanese children's literature.
