About the author (1971)

Brilliant, sensitive, neurotic, Akutagawa Ryunosuke left over 100 stories before his suicide at age 35. Feudal fables are often the source for his tales, but Akutagawa also brought his knowledge of several world literatures to enrich his writing. His best-known story, "In a Grove" ("Yabu no naka"), has become a play and was made into the prizewinning movie Rashomon by Kurosawa Akira (see Vol. 3).
