The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro Book Description:

L'action de The Remains of the Day, troisième roman de Kazuo Ishiguro, se situe au départ en 1956. Darlington Hall, élégante demeure aristocratique, symbole d'une grandeur britannique surannée, vient d'être vendue à Mr Farraday, gentleman américain, dont la modernité déconcerte Stevens, majordome hors pair mais vieillissant. Les tours et les détours du périple qu'il va accomplir lors de sa semaine de congé octroyée par son nouveau maître, épousent de manière métaphorique les méandres de la pensée de ce narrateur non fiable qui se perd dans ses souvenirs et ne cesse de repousser l'idée dérangeante qu'il a gâché sa vie dans l'illusoire quête d'une fausse dignité. Dans ce roman, Ishiguro met en scène un personnage prisonnier de son environnement et de ses inhibitions, incapable, comme beaucoup, de voir au-delà des apparences.

Unreliable narration in Kazuo Ishiguro s The Remains of the Day A theoretical approach Book Description:

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: This paper examines the narrator's reliability of Kazuo Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day. The author of this paper aims to do this while casting a critical eye on aspects that may hint at Steven being an unreliable narrator. Therefore, this paper also takes into account aspects that could lead to the conclusion of Steven being a reliable narrator. Firstly, the crucial term unreliable narrator is going to be defined. Then, two long accepted theoretical approaches are going to be presented, namely, Frany Stanzel’s concept of Narrative Situation and Gérard Genette’s Structuralist Theory. Indeed, being aware of these narratological concepts is of vital importance for the reader. That is, it enables the latter to better keep track of how to analyze the narrative Structure in "The Remains of the Day" properly. The next step is applying these concepts to, the concrete example of, the narrator in The Remains of the Day. Secondly, several respective clues which backup the hypothesis of Unreliable Narration will be presented. More precisley, passages of the here discussed novel that specifically meet the criteria of inconsistency, incoherence and lack of correspondence will be pointed out. The approach to the subject will be a theory and analytical method based, close reading of "The Remains of the Day". All in all, it is going to be argued that, since the narrator of The Remains of the Day meets the criteria of inconsistency, incoherence and lack of correspondence, he should be considered unreliable.

Imprisonment and Release in Kazuo Ishiguro s The Remains of the Day Book Description:

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Leipzig (Institut für Anglistik), language: English, abstract: This paper examines the themes of imprisonment and release in Kazuo Ishiguro's 1989 novel "The Remains of the Day." It discusses the relation between the two main narratives as well as the peculiarities of the language of Stevens, the butler at Darlington Hall, who is the protagonist and first person narrator. The author examines in what ways Stevens' demeanour resembles that of a man to whom has been granted release following a life spent in prison. The nature of this prison is investigated as well as whether Stevens is conscious of his imprisonment and if his journey through England provides him an opportunity for escape. The question of Stevens' self-awareness is an important one for this paper and draws upon an essay by Meghan Marie Hammond about Stevens' role as an author.

About Wasted Opportunities in Kazuo Ishiguro s The Remains of the Day Book Description:

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, University of Tubingen (English Department), course: Introduction to Literature Studies, language: English, abstract: The narration is primarily about wasted opportunities, about a man who is looking back upon his life and wishes he had acted differently. Through his 'expedition', Mr Stevens is granted the opportunity to rethink his life, identify the mistakes he made and avoid them in the future. The question is whether he uses this opportunity wisely or if he wastes it. Already in the prologue Mr Stevens admits to have "a reluctance to change too many of the old ways," and this will be proven to be all-too true (Ishiguro 7). His behaviour and attitude after the journey which could have been a turning point in his life are by and large not altered after his journey.Mr Stevens is not able to change himself in the important areas, namely his restraint, his extreme professionalism, and the attitude towards his father, although he makes some superficial progress regarding Lord Darlington.
