村上春樹『ねじまき鳥クロニクル』論 : 〈歴史〉のナラトロジー

A Study of Haruki Murakami's Nejimakidori Chronicle : the narratology of history
Hashimoto, Makiko
When various opinions about history spread in the 1990s, Haruki Murakami also published Nejimakidori Chronicle on the theme of history in 1995. He wasn't going to face history as a writer until he wrote this novel. How does Murakami picture history as a contemporary writer of today in his novel? In this paper, I will consider Murakami's narrative of history in Nejimakidori Chronicle referring to other various opinions about history today. In order to clarify what Murakami's narrative of history is, I will study the meaning of ""Nejimakidori"" used as the keyword of this novel and the structure of narration of the text.
