Storyboard Text

  • Excuse me, where am I?
  • Hi. I am Lady Murasaki Shikibu. We are in Kyoto right now, actually right in front of my house. Would you like to come in? I could use some company.
  • The name Lady Murasaki seems oddly familiar... oh yeah!  She was one of the greatest female writers in early history. I can't believe I am in her house!
  • Would you like to read one of my books? I have many that you would like.
  • I think I have a book you will like. I wrote it back in 1000. It's called The Tale Of Genji. It is about a prince named Genji and his quest for love throughout Japan. This book is my most well known. Artists have actually made many paintings about it. 
  • Wow! You have so many books and poems. I am so excited to start reading!
  • This book is written very well; Lady Murasaki has quite the talent. The characters in this book seem so vivid and real; her writing is clear and simple, but very graceful.
  • I have many other poems as I am a famous writer, but sadly, it is time for you to go. I have to work on another piece I have been writing for a while. Thank you so much for joining me today. You can visit anytime you want! 
  • You were right! I love this book. It is so detailed, just like your other works. Do you have any other poems or books I can look at?
  • That was so fun. I wonder where I will go next. Come to think of it, I think I see the glowing paper again.
