  Abstract:  This study investigates the literary universe of the Japanese culture during Heian period, pointing out the fact that emotion, politics or common life became a form of art. An art defined not only by the high rafinement of poetry, but also by the fast popularity of the novel. The name of the novelist Murasaki Shikibu is connected to the beginning of the Japanese novel. The study appreciates her capacity to combine objective description, poetical evocation and psychological investigation in presenting the complex world of the Heian court.

Keywords: Heian court, novel, art, objective description, poetical evocation.
