    羅生門 PDF æ Hardcover 羅生門 epub, 羅生門 EpubSix deceptively simple or simply deceptive short stories from early twentieth century Japanese author Ryūnosuke 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 murderrape 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 Another standout was Kesa and Morito in which a man and woman who've had a brief fling decide to kill the woman's husband and neither of them really wants to do so Love and contempt are m

    羅生門 PDF æ Hardcover 羅生門 epub, 羅生門 EpubCollection of short stories by the pre war Japanese author Ryunosuke Akutagawa Akutagawa wrote around 150 short stories before he committed suicide in 1927The stories are creepy and eerie but very well done Perhaps they are even beautiful in the original Japanese Nevertheless there is something dismal and Sartresue about them Another descriptive word would be thought provoking as each tale grapples with evil and the hopelessness of man Though the author is from the 20th century the tales show an medieval traditional Japan Maybe Akutagawa saw that this way of life was on t

    羅生門 PDF æ Hardcover 羅生門 epub, 羅生門 EpubI 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 groupSomething that I definitely did notice is that uite 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 From all accounts that I've heard it seems that there are some words and expressions that are almost untranslatable from the English to the Japanese and I daresay vice versa too In any case I do know of cases where certain single words in Japanese have no euivalent in English and have to be explained via entire paragraphs or se

    羅生門 PDF æ Hardcover 羅生門 epub, 羅生門 EpubI feel ambivalent toward books labeling themselves the ‘essential’ anything or anyone I typically avoid them but in this case it was a decision made for reasons of practicality and convenience This was my first encounter with Akutagawa Ryūnosuke Will it be my last I’m not sure Akutagawa wrote many types of fiction in his relatively short career but in this book the pieces that spoke to me the most were the autobiographical ones ‘Cogwheels’ and ‘A Fool’s Life’ both manuscripts of which were found among his papers following his suicide in 1927 at age 35 uite a few of the other stories in this book are very good in a conventional way but it is in these last two that I think Akutagawa grows closest to communicating his own truth They are fragmentary like life and intriguing in their poetic intricacies Apparently in the last year of his life as Seiji Lippit tells it in the introduction Akutagawa held a public argument with t
