Abstract

In A Pale View of Hills, Kazuo Ishiguroʼs first novel, the main character and narrator Etsuko remembers a summer in Japan after the Second World War. Migration and the possibility of rebuilding their lives in a different place become a matter of discussion in that period. The purpose of this article is to explore through textual analysis how the novel presents an experience of war in visual terms. Sight becomes the frame for war experience, and therefore the notion of ʻwitness’ becomes central. The narrator takes a position between being a victim and being a witness, showing the difficulties of telling traumatic experiences such as war, the atomic bomb, and its consequences.

Keywords
