A dive into classic Japanese literature

For several years I’ve been interested in Japanese culture, although I’ve ventured little into Japanese literature. The reason was simply that I had enough other books to read and in time I would pick up some books. Now I’ve stumbled upon an anthology of classic Japanese literature, ranging between prose, literature and plays from the eighth until the nineteenth century. It’s a Dutch anthology so unless you can read Dutch it’s not much of interest to you. It’s a heavy tome called Eternal Travelers.

I also picked up another book, this one from my wanted list. I can say I’ve already started reading Stonewielder (2010) by Ian C. Esslemont. Another epic fantasy tale taking place in the Malazan universe Esslemont shares with Stevn Erikson.
