The Tale of the Heike

is one of the masterworks of Japanese literature, ranking with The Tal of Genji

in quality and prestige. This new translation is not only far more readable than earlier ones, it is also much more faithful to the content and style of the original. Intended for the general audience as well as the specialist, this edition is highly annotated.
