Kazuo Ishiguro "The Remains of the Day" - warsztat literacki

Wielu nauczycieli języka angielskiego spotyka na swojej drodze ambitnych uczniów pragnących poszerzyć wiedzę dotyczącą kultury krajów anglojęzycznych. Po przyznaniu Nagrody Nobla brytyjskiemu pisarzowi Kazuo Ishiguro w 2017 roku, zrealizowałam z grupą humanistów krótki warsztat dotyczący jednej z jego powieści: „Okruchy dnia” (‘’The Remains of the Day”). Poniżej znajduje się plan tego wydarzenia.

2. Krótka dyskusja na temat wpływu pochodzenia pisarza na jego styl literacki. Cytat: https://bombmagazine.org/articles/kazuo-ishiguro

"I'm not entirely like English people because I've been brought up by Japanese parents in a Japanese-speaking home. My parents didn't realize that we were going to stay in this country for so long, they felt responsible for keeping me in touch with Japanese values. I do have a distinct background. I think differently, my perspectives are slightly different."

3. Omówienie siły wartości wyznawanych przez bohaterów powieści. Cytat: https://bombmagazine.org/articles/kazuo-ishiguro

"I tend to be attracted to pre-war and postwar settings because I'm interested in this business of values and ideals being tested, and people having to face up to the notion that their ideals weren't quite what they thought they were before the test came."

4. Refleksja na temat kolei życia Stevensa, głównego bohatera powieści. Cytat: https://www.litlovers.com/reading-guides/fiction/853-remains-of-the-day-ishiguro?start=1 :

“Ishiguro's novels often end without any sense of resolution. The issues his characters confront are buried in the past and remain unresolved. Thus Ishiguro ends many of his novels on a note of melancholic resignation. His characters accept their past and who they have become, typically discovering that this realisation brings comfort and an ending to mental anguish. This can be seen as a literary reflection on the Japanese idea of mono no aware.”
The Remains of the Day – how to waste your life?
What is a great butler?
Dignity, selfless service, lost sense of humanity, total devotion to the master.

6. Kontekst historyczny wydarzeń powieści oraz ocean zachowań głównych bohaterów. Cytaty: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Remains_of_the_Day, http://www.postcolonialweb.org/uk/ishiguro/kiself.html

The pro-German stance of Lord Darlington has parallels in the warm relations with Germany favoured by some British aristocrats in the early 1930s, such as Lord Londonderry and Oswald Mosley.

''Lord Darlington wasn't a bad man. He wasn't a bad man at all. And at least he had the privilege of being able to say at the end of his life that he made his own mistakes. . . . He chose a certain path in life, it proved to be a misguided one, but there, he chose it, he can say that at least. As for myself, I cannot even claim that. You see, I trusted. I trusted in his lordship's wisdom. All those years I served him, I trusted that I was doing something worthwhile. I can't even say I made my own mistakes. Really - one has to ask oneself - what dignity is there in that?''
