Never Let Me Go

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it’s only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is. Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.

Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special—and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together.

Told And Not Told

This paper discusses the uncanny in Kazuo Ishiguro's 'Never Let Me Go' starting from the definitions established by Ernst Jentsch and Sigmund Freud. The main goal is to discover how the uncanny feeling comes about in the novel. To that end, the thematic and stylistic features are examined. The most important uncanny theme in 'Never Let Me Go' is that of the doppelgänger masked as clone. The uncanny is also created by Ishiguro's writing style. He slowly reveals the novel's secret in an unsettling way. I also examined how the uncanny effect is achieved in the movie adaptation by Mark Romanek.

Empathy In Kazuo Ishiguro S Never Let Me Go

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, , language: English, abstract: The aim of this essay is to examine the role of empathy in Kazuo Ishiguro ́s “Never Let Me Go” with special regard to the “teaching” of empathy at the boarding school of Hailsham. The essay will examine the role of the educational system in “Never Let Me Go” in order to characterize forms of teaching, education and upbringing that lead to the typical characteristics of the clones. Before dealing with the importance of the educational system for preserving public order in the dystopian world, general functions and modes of empathy in fictional writing will be discussed in an introductory part. In a conclusive part it will be argued that Kazuo Ishiguro uses a narrative style that persuades the reader to “feel with” the protagonists. By doing so the reader is led to judge the society of the dystopian world to be cruel and undesirable.
