Remember to use complete sentences.  For this assignment, you don’t need to respond to your classmates, though you may do so if you wish (and if you remain polite).  Also note, for question 1, I am giving you options; however, if more than 4-5 of your classmates have already posted on one of the options, it would be better if you chose a different prompt so that the discussion ends up covering all of the possible prompts.

    1. Japanese
    2. Nara Court
    3. Heian Court
    4. Waka/Tanka Poetry
    5. Kana (syllabary or system)
  2. After reading chapters 1 and 2 of The Tale of Genji, as well as looking over the class lecture notes and supplemental material, what is your view of Genji: Is he a hero? Or, is Genji and anti-hero? Alternatively, just what type of character has Murasaki Shikibu constructed in this novel?
