    Dating from the 14th century and relating events from two centuries earlier, the epic Tale of the Heike has been hugely influential in Japanese culture. It tells of the wars between the Heike and Genji clans, with vivid battle scenes and a cast of unforgettable characters. Tyler's translation, in a mixture of verse and prose, brings out the wit and freshness of the original and is complemented by a set of classic illustrations.
