Ripped from the Headlines: Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Remains of the Day"

ID : 834   
« back to classes page
The Nobel Prize for Literature, which is given for "a body of work," was awarded in 2017 to Kazuo Ishiguro.  This course will examine his masterwork, The Remains of the Day.  The writer's use of memory in the narrative illuminates the effects of memory on reliability and point of view.  As Stevens, a butler, thinks back on his life in an English great house between the world wars, he introduces us not only to his personal development, but also to universal human themes of regret and shame, the desire for understanding, and the need for consolation.
