Rashoumon by Edward Lee

"Rashomon" (Japanese: ???) is a short story by Akutagawa Ryunosuke based on tales from the Konjaku Monogatarishu. A man considering whether or not to become a thief meets a woman stealing hair from corpses. Their conversation explores the morality of theft.

The story was first published in 1915 in Teikoku Bungaku. Despite its name, it provided no direct plot material for the Akira Kurosawa movie Rashomon, which was based on Akutagawa's 1921 short story, In a Grove.
