“A thoughtful scholar’s reconstruction. . . . A book which should delight anyone interested in Japan.” —The New York Times Book Review

“The people of the Heian period in Japan . . . evolved a civilization . . . pervaded by a sense of the transitoriness of things, combined with an awareness of beauty so sharp that it was poignant. . . . Ivan Morris’s book is as elegant as its theme.” —The Observer (London)
