The Tale of Genji: Dreams at Dawn

By Waki Yamato

First published in the 1980s and 90s, Waki Yamato’s renowned adaptation of Murasaki Shikibu’s 11th-century literary masterpiece is still gorgeous to behold and is considered one of the greatest novel-to-manga adaptations of all time.

Prince Genji falls in love with his stepmother, and so begins a forbidden love that will make him suffer his whole life. Genji’s love story involves him falling for many women and begins with his love for Princess Fujitsubo-his father’s wife and his stepmother. And Genji will cross that line which he should never cross.

The English-language digital debut of The Tale of Genji: Dreams at Dawn coincides with the opening of the exhibition “The Tale of Genji: A Japanese Classic Illuminated” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City-featuring original genga artwork from this manga-in Spring 2019.
