Monogatari (Japanese: 物語) is a Japanese classic novel, a novel in traditional Japanese prose, an extended narrative comparable to an epic, and a collection of Japanese short stories that contain elements of poetry in the text. The extensive definition of "Monogatari" makes the term itself conditional and does not connect it with any particular literary genre. Monogatari is closely related to aspects of oral tradition and almost always includes fictional or fictionalized subjects, even when retelling.

Monogatari is a Japanese medieval story. I was reading Genji Monogatari ("The Tale of Prince Genji") Murasaki Shikibu, " Torikaebei Monogatari "("Confusion"), "Sagoromo Monogatari" ("The Tale of Sagoromo"), "Takamura Monogatari" ("The Tale of Takamura"), "Utsuho Monogatari" ("The Tale of the Hollow Tree"). And "Heike Monogatari" ("The Tale of the House of Tyr"). I also know the names of a number of Monogatari that have not yet been translated into Russian or have not survived to this day.
