Ryunosuke Akutagawa 1892-1927
Ryunosuke Akutagawa was born in 1892 in Toyko, whose spirit and whose traditions he evokes with the magic of Baudelaire's Paris or Kafka's Prague. His mother died insane when he was a child. His father, toward whom he felt a great resentment, was a failure who gave him up to relatives for adoption. A brilliant student of literature at Tokyo Imperial University, he had already published his first stories before graduating in 1916. Married two years later, he fathered three sons and taught English to support his family. Later he traveled to China and Russia. In 1915, he published his arresting psychological novella Rashomon , which was to gain international recognition and eventually become a hugely successful film by Kurosawa. After a period of severe depression, the increasingly unstable Akutagawa took his own life with an overdose of pills in 1927, at age thirty five. His suicide letter, A Note to a Certain Old Friend , is contained below. His nearly ten volumes of literary essays, short stories, and novellas are a masterful reinterpretation of Asian tradition and legend, marked by a profound infusion of Western thought and literary technique.

Akutagawa Ryunosuke (1892-1927)
Por Alfredo Elejalde F..
Lima, 5 de febrero de 1999.
Akutagawa es considerado parte del grupo de intelectuales y estetas contrarios al naturalismo, al humanismo socializante de Shirakaba y a la literatura proletria. Tanizaki Junichiro (1886-1965), Sato Haruo (1892-1964) y Kubota Mantaro (1889-1963) acompañan a Akutagawa en este grupo. La etiqueta de "intelectual esteta" no le hace justicia al maestro pues su camino es marginal y, frecuentemente, incomprendido, como mostraremos en esta reseña. impulso vital como motor del escritor y sus personajes. En el temprano ensayo "Literature : an Introduction", Akutagawa define la literatura como un arte que usa el lenguaje como medio y que transmite vida La palabra japonesa que usa para designar la vida es seimei , no seikatsu seimei . Este concepto de seimei Veamos el memorable caso del cuento Yabu no Naka, traducido al inglés como In a Grove, y al español como En el bosque. En él es notoria, por un lado, la influencia occidental pues utiliza las mismas técnicas que Robert Browning emplea en "The Ring in a Book" (1868); por otro, como casi toda la obra del escritor, se basa en un episodio del Kinjaku Monogatari, del siglo XII. Los cuentos Yabu no Naka (En el bosque) y Rashomon (Nombre de un antiguo puente en la vieja capital de Kioto) fueron la fuente para el argumento de la famosa película Rashomon de Akira Kurosawa, ganadora del Festival Internacional de Cine en Venecia, 1951.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Akutagawa Ryunosuke (1892-1927) Short-story writer, poet, and essayist, one of the first Japanese modernists translated into English. Akutagawa wrote no full-length novel. He was a stylistic perfectionist, who often favored macabre themes. His short story 'Rashomon' inspired Akira Kurosawa 's classic film from 1950. In 1935, the writer's friend Kikuchi Kan established the Akutagawa Prize, which is generally considered among the most prestigious Japanese literary awards for aspiring writers. "He [Akutagawa] was a devotee of the literati tastes which had been handed down from Edo times; from this tradition came his taste in clothes, disdain for boorishness, a certain respect for punctilio and, more important, his wide knowledge of Chinese and Japanese literature and delicate sensitivity to language." (Shuichi Kato in A History of Japanese Literature , vol. 3, 1983) Akutagawa Ryonosuke was born in Tokyo into a family which had lived for generations in the shitamachi Shin Shicho While still at the university, Akutagawa started to write short stories. In this he was encouraged by the novelist Natsume Soseki, who was especially impressed by 'Rashomon' (or 'The Rasho Gate', 1915), published in a university magazine. The story, set in 12th-century Kyoto, depicts a ruined city, where a former servant tries to survive and must choose between immorality and virtue.

Akutagawa Ryunosuke
Akutagawa Ryunosuke was born in Tokyo in 1892. He also wrote under other pen names such as Gaki and Chokodo-shujin.
While studying at Tokyo University, he became a member of the coterie Shinshicho (New Currents of Thought) and began writing stories for their magazine. In 1915, he published gRashomonh and the next year, gHanah (tr The Nose), which brought him to the attention of Natsume Soseki. Akutagawafs debut in the literary world was further assured through the publication of works such as gImogayuh (tr Yam Gruel)) and gHankachih (tr A handkerchief).
After graduation from the university, Akutagawa wrote novels including gJigokuhenh (tr Hell Screen) and gHokyonin no Shih (tr The Martyr) while he taught English at the Naval Engineering School in Yokosuka. Although still young, he became regarded as a major figure in literary circles. He resigned his teaching job in 1919 in order to devote himself full time to writing and joined the Osaka Mainichi Newspaper. His deteriorating health, however, became conspicuous and works based on his personal experiences increased. While afflicted by an intense nervous breakdown he wrote gKappah (tr Kappa [Water imp]) and gAru Aho no Isshoh (The life of a fool). His last novel was gSeiho no Hitoh (The man of the West). He committed suicide in 1927 at the age of 35. The anniversary of his death is commemorated as gKappakih (Kappa Anniversary).
When he was a teacher, Ryunosuke lodged at Yuigahama, Kamakura, and commuted to Yokosuka. From March 1918 he spent the first year of marriage in a rented house at Zaimokuza near Motohachiman.

Akutagawa Ryunosuke and the Modernist Movement
A paper which discusses the life and works of Japanese author, Akutagawa Ryunosuke within the modernist period that he lived. Term Paper #: # of words: # of sources: Format (MLA/APA): APA Written: Price: Hide: Author: Padraic Gurdon
The paper explores the life and literary pieces of Japanese writer and poet, Akutogawa Ryunosuke who was one of the first writers of the Japanese modernist movement to be translated widely into English. The paper shows that Akutagawa is probably best known for his single short story “Rashomon”, which inspired director Akira Kurosawa’s film of that name in 1950. In order to understand the times in which Akutogawa lived and worked, the paper defines modernism and explains the difference between Japanese and Western modernism.
From The Paper
"The stories that Akutagawa wrote and that Kurosawa adapted were in fact based on stories that had probably been compiled in the 10th century. Akutagawa would over the course of his short professional life adopt many ancient Japanese stories, seeming to prefer tales that were both Gothic and based on pre-modern elements. His settings, as grotesque and bizarre as any that Edgar Allan Poe could ever have dreamed up, would have struck his readers as standing in obvious contrast the to “civilized” state of Western-influenced 20th-century Japan."

    Akutagawa Ryonosuke was born in the Tsukiji district of Tokyo in March 1892. Asa child, Akutagawa was an avid reader of popular ghost stories.
    Akutagawa Ryonosuke was born in the Tsukiji district of Tokyo in March 1892. The eldest son of Niihara Toshizo, he was adopted by his uncle, Akutagawa Michiaki, when his mother went mad only a few months after his birth. The boy felt remote from both his real and his adopted parents, though the insanity of his mother - who lived on in his father's house, a silent, pallid figure obsessively sketching fox-people - was to cast a shadow over his entire life.
    As a child, Akutagawa was an avid reader of popular ghost stories. As a young student, his reading grew to cover the Chinese classics, contemporary Japanese authors such as Ogai and Soseki, as well as Maupassant, Anatole France, Kipling, Poe and other masters of the short story.
    Entering Tokyo Imperial University in 1913 as an English literature major, Akutagawa lost no time in producing original work. He had his first short story published in 1914, while Rashomon , his best-known tale and the title story of his first collection, came out the following year. 1916 marked his breakthrough, when The Nose was praised by Natsume Soseki and literary magazines began to court the young writer.

    This page is prepared by Leigh Mcareavy and Matthew Spooner Yabu no Naka
    Akutagawa Ryunosuke Akutagawa Ryunosuke was born in 1892. His mother became crazy nine months after his birth and as a result he was sent to live with his grand parents. Akutagawa lost his fathers family name after a while and inherited his mother's maiden name, on account of him living with his mother's parents.
    Akutagawa was always paranoid as a child, that like his mother he would eventually become crazy. On this note, it would seem that most of his writing seems to reflect this sad mind set. Most of his writing revolves around the sad and dark nature of humanity, reflecting his personal opinion about the depressing nature of human kind. Ryunosuke devoted his whole life to the purpose of writing. He had spent most of his high school years with writing and continued doing so as he entered Tokyo University. After graduating from Tokyo University, Akutagawa joined a writing club and wrote many creative journals. It was around this time that Akutagawa met Natsume Souseki. Souseki was himself a professor at Tokyo University, and took a liking to the writing style of young Akutagawa. He began promoting Akutagawa's work, and helped to create the exposure that Akutagawa needed to succeed. Akutagawa Ryunosuke then began working for the Asahi newspaper company as a columnist. His title was "friend of the newspaper".
