Blurb/Shorttext:
Gaps and silences are of lurid, floating character, always escaping cognitive approaches. By analysing the novels of Japanese-born British author Kazuo Ishiguro, readers play a jigsaw-activity filling in the informative gaps and deciphering auditory or spatial silences. How can these phenomenons be located? To what extent is silence provocative by deflecting injurious details of the past and how does the writer’s artistic craft construct the layers of protagonists’ distorted narration? The main lines of inquiry are also to examine how protagonists are trapped by their first-person narration. In Kazuo Ishiguro’s early novels the provoking nature of gaps and silences will be explored by means of post-structuralist narrative discourse analysis and psychoanalytic literary criticism.
