Abstract

A Pale View of Hills, penned by Kazuo Ishiguro, a Britisih-Japan author, and A Tale of Time Being, written by Ruth Ozeki, an American-Canadian author, are homogenous works in terms of their depiction of multiculturalism and its effects. They both depict multiculturalism in a cosmic and social sphere and it is observable in their depiction of the interactions between individuals of Japanese, American, English, and Canadian origins. Additionally, they show multiculturalism in international and historical spheres. This article examines Ishiguro’s characters, such as Etsuko, Sachiko, Mariko, Keiko, and Ozeki’s characters, such as Neo, Ruth, Kimi, and Haruku, who are highly similar in their understanding of multi-culturalism in an analogical and comparative way. Although this article also goes beyond the fictional narratological spheres that these characters are involved in and shows international and historical facts related to multicultural interaction, it only offers information about multiculturalism in a fictional sense, not fully life-like information. In order to be able to make a successful analysis based on examination and interpretation, it is very important to have ideas and knowledge on many subjects such as the period in which the work was produced, the conditions, the social structure, politics and sociology. In order to achieve this goal, information about the above-mentioned subjects was obtained and then the works was examined. This examination was done through tracking down and finding out the similarities between to two aforementioned works and was done also through showing direct citations from the examinations about finding out similarties between the two aforementioned works.
