今週のMajor East Asian Textsのクラスの宿題は源氏物語です。源氏物語はとても長い本で、先生は端折ったバージョンを宿題にした。源氏物語はとてもおもしろいですよ。そして、まあまあ難しいです。The characters do not have any names (apparently, members of the court during the Heian period did not address each other by given names, but rather by rank or station), so it's very hard to keep track of who's who--especially because all the characters are having affairs with each other.源氏物語をよんだら、平安時代に生きればすげえおもしろいと思う。

源氏物語をよみましたか。すごいですね。わたしもよみましたが、ぜんぜんわかりませんでした...。When I read it in classical Japanese, I couldn't figure out what's going on. Then, I read it in English and manga and finally understood the story. Why do you think you'd enjoy living during that era?

I'm Japanese. I'm also studying English. It's difficult to learn different language. The difference between English and Japanese is grammar. I sometimes confuse. :(

わたしも、平安時代に生きていたら、おもしろいと思います。 (^^)/
