Abstract

This paper discusses language, memory, trauma and the construction of gender identity in Kazuo Ishiguro’s early works. I'm specifically concerned with the way in which gender identities in these novels are linked to wider theorisations of historically constituted subjectivities. I will also be examining the deployment of memory and language in the deconstruction and reconstruction of gender in each novel's first person narration.
