Source Stories for Kurosawa's film Rashomon

Average: 2 (1 vote)

This book contains "Rashomon" and "In a Grove", the source stories on which Kurosawa's famous film, Rashomon, is based. These are the original translations from the 50s, and show their age. A more current version of the works is now out, translated by Jay Rubin. Since even the font used in this book is old, the stories will likely strike students as dated. I'd recommend the newer version.
