Japan in the 10th century stood physically and culturally isolated from the rest of the world. Inside this bubble, a subtle and beautiful world was in operation, and its inhabitants were tied to the moment, having no interest in the future and disdain for the past. In a small diary, a young courtesan of the Heian period gives her account of the Japanese courts of the day, providing perspective on a unique time in Japanese history. A contemporary of Murasaki Shikibu, the author of The Tale of Genji, Sei Sho-nagon's commentary brings an added dimension to that timeless and seminal work.
Mantel und Degen ... und Drachen Sie sind gekommen, um sich zurückzuholen, was ihnen gehört. Mittels Magie und Hexerei versucht der Geheimbund der »Schwarzen Kralle« erneut, die Macht über die europäischen Königshäuser zu sichern, doch die Elitetruppe »Die Klingen des Kardinals« setzt alles daran, Frankreich zu retten.
In a place and time where poetry was as important as knowledge and beauty was highly revered, Sei Shonagon's private writings give the reader a charming and intimate glimpse into a time of isolated innocence and pale beauty.
