Isolation and the Restrained Self in Fiction
30 October @ 5.00pm


The presentation will focus on the link between restrained emotion and isolation through an examination of characterisation in fiction, using examples from Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day and Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. I will concentrate on scenes where a character’s emotional restraint breaks or wavers, exploring the significance of these moments for the narrative as a whole. I will also talk about my own creative work, and the ways I attempt to approach the same theme.
