    Six deceptively simple or simply deceptive short stories from early twentieth century Japanese author Ry nosuke Akutagawa, who died at the too early age of 35 My favorite is the first story, In a Grove, where the police commissioner interviews various unreliable witnesses, trying to pin down exactly what happened in an apparent murder rape scene In Rashomon, a laid off servant lingers under a dilapidated gate, caught between an living an honest life that might be the end of him and ad Six deceptively simple or simply deceptive short stories from early twentieth century Japanese author Ry nosuke Akutagawa, who died at the too early age of 35 My favorite is the first story, In a Grove, where the police commissioner interviews various unreliable witnesses, trying to pin down exactly what happened in an apparent murder rape scene In Rashomon, a laid off servant lingers under a dilapidated gate, caught between an living an honest life that might be the end of him and adopting a life of thievery An odd occurrence leads him to his choice The main character in Yam Gruel is distinctly reminiscent of the pitiful, picked upon Akaky in The Overcoat Sometimes getting what you ve always wanted leaves you emptier than when you started...

    If you re a fan of Japanese cinema, you will recognize one of Kurosawa s movies from the title However, the movie is a pastiche of two short stories the eponymous Rashomon set at the gate in Kyoto, and In A Grove , a murder mystery from multiple perspectives This collection of six Akutagawa stories is deeply observant and some wry observation about human nature, or some criticism of an institution Kesa and Morito is like The Gift of the Magi , except with murder These works are deeply If you re a fan of J...

    I think I somehow missed the point of the Yam gruel story I found the Rashomon story rather cruel and unsympathetic I think I ll reserve judgment until after we ve discussed these in our Brain Pain group.Something that I definitely did notice, is that quite a bit of the original seems to be lost in translation, which might be partly the fault of the translator, but almost definitely also due to the fact that English and Japanese are two languages that seem to be difficult to translate mutually I think I somehow missed the point of the Yam gruel story I found the Rashomon story rat...
