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.

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.

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.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Würzburg, language: English, abstract: In Kazuo Ishiguro ́s The Remains of the Day the first person narrator Stevens, a butler on the verge of retirement, undertakes a journey to meet – for what is likely the last time in their lives – his former coworker and love interest Miss Kenton. At the same time, he tries to come to terms with his past by reexamining his memories of his life at Darlington Hall, the choices he made and the values he had. Throughout his account it becomes increasingly obvious that Stevens ́s narration cannot be trusted completely. His comments on, and interpretation of, past events in his life and his portrayal of himself and others in his tale expose him as an unreliable narrator. However, his attempts to deceive himself and others are possibly the most interesting and telltale aspect of the narrative. After all, “the use of an unreliable narrator draws attention to a character ́s psychology.” Paradoxically, the narrator reveals most about himself and his life when he is trying to obscure the truth.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Koblenz-Landau (Institut für fremdsprachliche Philologien, Abt. Anglistik), course: British Heritage in Literature and Film, language: English, abstract: This paper sets out to analyze Kazuo Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day (1989) with a particular focus on the novel's protagonist as a representation of typical English stereotypes. The following paper is divided into five chapters. After a brief introduction in chapter 1, an introductory overview of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel follows in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 tries to define the term Englishness as a national identity. Chapter 4 comprises a close reading analysis of the two major motifs in The Remains of the Day. In the fifth chapter, the author draws a comparison between the decline of Darlington Hall with the decline of the British Empire. He tries to emphasize in how far Thatcher's policy is offended by Ishiguro's novel. Chapter 6 will present a conclusion on the findings from the topics covered in this paper and gives a prospect on further research questions Margaret Thatcher's reordering of the duties and responsibilities of the state, the privatization of state-owned industries, and the restrictions in the welfare policy were unique and caused a sensation in the European Community. In her political agenda, the term 'British Identity' was highlighted, especially in relation to her foreign policy campaigns, like the Falkland's War or her concerns about the European Community. In his novel The Remains of the Day, Kazuo Ishiguro establishes a set of typical English stereotypes. Those stereotypes cover a sense of nostalgia, which is, according to Su, ..". essential in forming a national identity." The nostalgia in the novel is established around the protagonist Stevens, who is obliged with the terms of dignity and Englishness. Margaret Thatcher's call for a return to 'Victorian values' is dedi

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.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,75, University of Frankfurt (Main), 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This text examines the concept of unreliable narration in Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Remains of the Day." Against the background of the novel's plot the questions arises to what extent the reader can trust the first person narrator Stevens, who is recalling events that have taken place almost 30 years ago. Is he always telling nothing but the truth or does he deliberately leave out important facts that might cast a slur at him or other persons in the novel or perhaps might destroy his self-image as a professional butler. Stevens pretends to be an honourable butler but how far can he be regarded to be honest to the reader respectively the narratee whome he addresses explicitly (Ishiguro 2005: 8 "Nevertheless, I think you will understand [...]")? In this context it is even more important to question his honesty towards himself; does he relentlessly tell the truth or does he betray even himself? In order to answer these evolving questions it is first of all necessary to give a brief outline of the literal terms point of view and unreliable narration in general. Being familiar with these expressions the next step that leads to a better understanding of the protagonist's character is the analysis of the narrative structure in "The Remains of the Day." This chapter includes the examination of the novel's language as well as the point of view and the (un)reliability of the narrator. As far as the question of (un)reliability is answered it is mandatory to consider Stevens' blindness and to ask if in the end a possible insight can be detected. This chapter has to be subdivided which means it has to be regarded in either an ideological /political context as well as in a private /social context. Finally, in the conclusion the findings will be summarized in order to ans
