Abstract

Author(s): B羹lent Cercis TANRITANIR, Fatma KARAMAN

Mankind is always in a search process in the materialistic world that the search has not only advantages but also disadvantages for human and nature. In fact, this search enables a more facilitated life and also opens the doors of a modern world. On the other hand, power-holders become greedier, they want more power and attack each other applying to nonhuman ways and wars. These nonhuman deeds put the post-war and pre-war victims in a despair and confusion. The despair and confusion create a curiosity in the human mind and lead him to search his existence. In addition, significant Japanese writer in English literature, Kazuo Ishiguro handles the searching identity issue in his novels. His narrators in his works are in a search for existence and they experience different experiences in this way. The purpose of this paper, at first, is to provide a wide research on the existentialist search of Stevens in The Remains of the Day. Then, Stevens’ search will be handled together with the struggle of Etsuko to live as a part of English society as a self in A Pale View of Hills.
