Kappa; a novel by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa( Book )
153 editions published between 1928 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 960 libraries worldwide
"When first published, Kappa was perceived varyingly as a children's story, a sweeping and satirical criticism of Japanese society, and a socialistic analysis - but this important work from one of Japan's most prolific short story writers seems to defy literary classification. Written shortly before Akutagawa's suicide, as he became increasingly obsessed with his own unhappiness as well as the hallucinations and delusions that assailed him, Kappa takes place somewhere between dream and reality. Kappa is told in the first person from the perspective of an institutionalized madman, identified only as Patient No. 23

La femme a été violée, alors que son mari, un samouraï a été retrouvé mort. Mais les dispositions des témoins devant le tribunal apportent à chaque fois une version différente du drame, et la vérité ne percera qu'après de nouvelles révélations surprenantes..."
