AUTHOR

Sarashina, Lady, Morris, Ivan, Morris, Ivan

SUMMARY

As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams is a unique autobiography in which the anonymous writer known as Lady Sarashina intersperses personal reflections, anecdotes and lyrical poems with accounts of her travels and evocative descriptions of the Japanese countryside. Born in AD 1008, Lady Sarashina felt an acute sense of melancholy that led her to withdraw into the more congenial realm of the imagination - this deeply introspective work presents her vision of the world. While barely alluding to certain aspects of her life such as marriage, she illuminates her pilgrimages to temples and mystical dreams in exquisite prose, describing a profound emotional journey that can be read as a metaphor for life itself.Sarashina, Lady is the author of 'As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams Recollections of a Woman in Eleventh-Century Japan', published 1989 under ISBN 9780140442823 and ISBN 0140442820.
