Akutagawa, Ryunosuke: Rashomon & Other Stories, v.1, 25 April 2008.

Translated by Takashi Kojima
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.

Contents:
In a Grove
Rashomon
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.

Thanks so much for this. However, and maybe it was so in the original material, there appears to be some content missing. In the first story, "In a Grove" (the primary basis for Kurosawa's Rashomon) at least the transition between the mother's tale and the account of the thief seems missing.
