Join us in a video chat to discuss The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon.
Completed in the year 1002, The Pillow Book is a fascinating account of Japanese court life in the eleventh century. Written by a lady of the court at the height of Heian culture, this book is an intimate look at the experiences and outlook of the Heian upper class, featuring reflections on royal ceremonies, nature, conversation, poetry, and of course, gossip.
