URL :  In a Grove
Author : Ry?nosuke Akutagawa
Detail : Date of publication: 1922

"In a Grove" (??? Yabu no Naka?) is a short story by Ry?nosuke Akutagawa, first appearing in the January 1922 edition of the Japanese literature monthly Shinch?. Akira Kurosawa used this story as the basis for the plot of his award-winning movie Rash?mon.


The story opens with the account of a woodcutter who has found a man's body in the woods. The woodcutter reports that man died of a single sword stroke to the chest, and that the trampled leaves around the body showed there had been a violent struggle, but otherwise lacked any significant evidence as to what actually happened.
