There I was, nursing an acute bronchial cough cursing the fateful knitting needles for hampering my purling flair even as Masuji diffidently questioned Mr. View all 7 comments. This one just wasn’t for me. Mostly very good, just read it for the set pieces arttista the characterization and the smooth, almost gliding quality of this very small but quite worthwhile story.

Had I read this first, I would have liked this and would have hated Remains. There’s such much drama in nothing at all! This had an adverse affect on his life – particularly his relationships after the war.

His daughter’s husbands represent the new generation, the generation of “change” which misunderstands the past.

Ishiguro is at his absolute best when he is exploring pain. The narrow area of existence flotantd the aspects of circumstantial actions. Five Stories of Music and Nightfall It was a breeze to get through.


I agree that nationalism is abhorrent and that he was on the wrong side of history. The clash of cultures is shown by this passage: No more moon in the water! The politicians, spiritual srtista, capitalist cliques waving their chameleonic flags of patriotism shy away from battling on their once beloved home ground.

The imagery in the novel is striking. Inthe Swedish Academy awarded him the Nobel Prize in Literature, describing him in its citation as a writer “who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”.

He writes as a simple old man with a failing memory. An Artist of the Floating World is a nice pleasant read.

Ono, is a retired artist reflecting back on his career and life. An artist of the floating world by Kazuo Ishiguro.

And, Ishiguro captures his struggle perfectly. Dep, I will not tell you if they succeeded as that would be too much of a spoiler. Why those clandestine escapes to safe havens when their own vile concoctions amalgamate in their own drinks?

Yet perhaps there are one or two who are able to pursue an artistic career and yet avoid such pitfalls. Now, as the mature Ono struggles through the aftermath of that war, his memories of his youth and of the “floating world”- the nocturnal world of pleasure, entertainment, and drink -offer him both escape and redemption, even as they punish him for betraying his early promise.

Un Artista del Mundo Flotante

I decided to pick up the novel he wrote before Remains, An Artist of the Floating World, and found it to be, unfortunately, a tediously slow-moving load of nothing. Ono in the end was nothing more than a patriot.

He needs to make sure he’s not the side of the executioners, to paraphrase Camus. But he is deft and clever, a safe choice for the nobel prize, his stories might even invite a careful reconsideration of the award decisions and the motivations of Alfred Nobel. How could a man be punished for something he believed in?

Now, that he is old, he wants everything that he will leave to be in order including the marriage of his daughter Noriko. Some wonderfully graceful pacing, with the situations and pages melting into one another, which as one reviewer here remarked, makes a “floating world” all its own.

What people call the floating world, Ono, was a world Gisaburo knew how to value.
