枕草子の楽しみ

Enjoyable Book “The Pillow Book”

“The Pillow Book” is a book written in the Heian era, and is still very popular now, and also appears in textbooks.
It’s written by Sei Shonagon who served to Chugu Sadako(Fujiwara no Teishi), and acts as an essay when it says by now.
It’s written about the thing of her life in the Imperial Court, the episode of noble people, the thing that she noticed in the environment.
“The early morning is the most beautiful in Spring. As a light over the mountain is glowing bright slightly and turn to white little by little, the purplish wispy clouds float in the air, such a view is nice.”
It starts with such a tasty description, and is written lively about nature, the thing about the Imperial Court.

「枕草子」は平安時代に書かれた書物で、
今でも大変人気がありますし、教科書にも載っています。
中宮定子に仕えた清少納言の書いた、
今でいうとエッセイのようなものです。
宮中の暮らしのこと、高貴な方々のエピソード、
身の回りで気がついたことなどが綴られています。
「春はあけぼのが良い。だんだん白くなっていく山のきわが少し明るくなって、
紫がかった雲が細くたなびいている景色が良い」
という風情のある描写から始まり、
自然について、宮中についてのことが
生き生きと書かれています。
