Octavo, illustrations by Masakazu Kuwata, cloth. First edition in English of this selection and translation. A companion volume to RASHOMON AND OTHER STORIES (1952) and EXOTIC JAPANESE STORIES (1964), collecting ten stories Kojima considers Akutagawa's "finest and most representative writings." "The Hell Screen" is a macabre ghost story. The author left some 140 short pieces of writing behind at his death, including short stories, essays and haiku verse. He "is thought to have been one of the most widely read scholars of his age . The incompatibility of his strong mind, his delicate nerves and the constant friction between his unworldly desires and the annoyances arising from the actualities of his life impelled him in due course to commit suicide at the early age of thirty-five" (from the rear flap of the dust jacket of EXOTIC JAPANESE STORIES). Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 14. A fine copy in good dust jacket with edge wear and small chip from top edge of spine panel. (#134206). N° de réf. du libraire 134206
