When did Akutagawa write Rashomon?

1915 The university's literary newspaper, Teikoku Bungaku (Imperial Literature), published "Rashomon" in 1915, when he was 23 years old. It was just the author's third attempt into the short story form. The story was eventually published as the title story of Akutagawa's debut collection, which was released two years later. "Rashomon" is considered one of the most important works in Japanese literature because it introduced Japanese readers to the novel and helped make it popular abroad.

It tells of a criminal case that comes before a feudal court in Kyoto. Four witnesses give different accounts of what happened at the scene of the crime, and none of their testimony agrees. This makes conviction impossible, so the court orders a new trial. This cycle of punishment and retrial continues indefinitely, until death ends the story.

Akutagawa used this fictional device to discuss issues such as truth and reality, perception, eyewitness testimony, and justice. He also uses it to express his views on society and politics. "Rashomon" has been interpreted as a metaphor for Japan itself by many critics, who see in it Akutagawa's criticism of the country's judicial system.

The story was made into a film in 1950 by Kurosawa Akira, which has become one of Japan's best-known movies. In 2004, it was selected as one of the top ten greatest films of all time in a poll conducted by Empire.
