This fits into the category of books where reading it increasingly becomes a life experience. Royall Tyler's translation, notes, and appendices are the perfect blend of the scholarly and literary. And for anyone looking to get ahead on their holiday shopping, this is a beautiful edition and would make a lovely gift (although I’m not sure it would fit in a stocking).
