British author Kazuo Ishiguro won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2017 for his "novels of great emotional force". Ishiguro’s fiction delves into the intricate inner worlds of characters who struggle with scarring memories and experiences. They tend to engage in a process of self-delusion and fictionalization, in an attempt to make sense of their lives and come to terms with their pasts. In An Artist of the Floating World (1986), Ishiguro explores such topics in the figure of Masuji Ono, an aging artist who looks back on his life and how he has lived it. As he undertakes this journey of introspection, he will have to confront past mistakes and accept responsibility for his actions during Japan’s involvement in World War II.


- Presentation of an integrated approach to the text. - Guided group reflection and exchange of ideas on the text. - Reading of key sections of the novel to appreciate their narrative power.
