ARRANGÖR ÖSTASIATISKA MUSEETS VÄNNER

 

Lördag 27 april kl.14.00: Fil.dr. i japanologi Monica Braw kommer att tala om sin nya bok ” Genji - tusen år med världens första roman” (Gidlunds förlag).

” Berättelsen om Genji ”, som skrevs för tusen år sedan av hovdamen Murasaki Shikibu, är världslitteraturens första roman, en psykologisk och realistisk skildring av kärlek, otro och svartsjuka. Romanen skildrar en värld där den estetiska känsligheten var en dygd och där insikten om formers och färgers försvinnande skönhet blev nyckeln till den traditionella japanska estetiken.

Plats: Östasiatiska museets hörsal
