A propos de cet article

Octavo, illustrations by Masakazu Kuwata, cloth. First edition in English of this selection and translation. A collection of six stories, five of which are published here in English for the first time. Hibbert's brief but excellent introduction points out that the author's style (which involved stylistic mastery, narrative aloofness and the use of the supernatural and surreal) set him apart from, and at odds with, the prevailing literary schools of the day (the proletarian social novel and the novel of romanticized naturalistic individualism). This critical isolation may have contributed to his suicide at the age of thirty-five. He left behind over a hundred stories. Kurosawa's movie adaptation of "Rashomon" actually is based mostly on another story by Akutagawa (also present here), "In a Grove." This story is a supernatural crime drama that offers several versions of the same event, from the differing perspectives of several characters (including, via a medium, the dead man himself), thus exploiting what might be called an epistemological relativism, part of the general philosophical relativism that has been endemic to modernism from its beginnings. Clute and Grant, eds., The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 14. Reginald 00106 (citing the 95-page Tuttle edition which he dates 1951). Several damp spots to cloth, else a very good copy.
