These two centuries saw the revival of the prestige of poetry in the native tongue after a century of official preference for versification in Chinese. In all, the book contains over 2,600 poems in lively and readable translation, including selections fromShinsen Man'yoshu, a late-ninth-century collection of parallel verses in Chinese and Japanese, and all 795 poems fromThe Tale of Genji.
