Yoshimoto Banana and Shin Kyeong-Suk of Korea are female authors of the same generation and they use sensual descriptions to show the inside of modern people in their works. "Shirakawa-yobune" and "Seya seya" both deal with the theme of life and death and use plenty of auditory representation. This paper will compare and contrast these two works of similarity to inquire into the two authors' individuality and the meaning of auditory representation in their works.
