Om forfatteren

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"), vis mere has become a play and was made into the prizewinning movie Rashomon by Kurosawa Akira (see Vol. 3). (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

There are several stories in this collection well worth 5 stars... and a few that are not. However, and this is a controversial decision in my own mind, the lesser stories still provide a key view into the authors.... disintegration. The last few in the collection, all published posthumously, are in fact difficult to read because of the writing... but also because the writer is clearly in a final downward spiral. It is uncomfortable because you are, essentially, reading someone's diary, and reading that they are going to kill themselves.

For that, I give an overall 5 stars, though perhaps it should be 4.

En el budismo, el Infierno se denomina Naraka, Nirriti y Niraya. El Naraka existe en tres maneras: las ocho regiones del Infierno de las Llamas, las regiones del Infierno del Frío y el Infierno Solitario. Los cuadros que representan el Naraka eran ejecutados con el objeto de difundir el budismo, al extremo de que los sacerdotes los llevaban consigo para mostrar los horrores del Infierno y lograr las conversiones por medio del temor.

The story is formed in short reports like strobe lights illuminating a group of figurines which are moved significantly between flashes, so every view is an impression of a different story with a few common objects. I think it is a meditation on how little of the truth is recoverable and how much it varies from person to person.
