Introduction by Howard Hibbett
(Translation first published 1952)

A collection of six masterpieces. ‘In a Grove’ tells the story of a murder from seven viewpoints, including that of the dead man.. Can one ever find the truth? The first two stories were the source for Akira Kurosawa’s film, Rashomon.


In a Grove
Yam Gruel
The Martyr
Kesa and Morito
The Dragon

The source was Black Mask/Munseys, which had a number of formatting errors (which I have tried to correct). There is also a copy at Manybooks.

Impossible to say: it depends what you are reading the text on; and on the size of font that you choose.
