This class provides an opportunity to read and discuss some of the central ideas that Oe Kenzaburo (1935 ) has developed over his writing career. We will be read primarily fiction written from the early days of his writing in 1957 through about 1994, when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. We will focus on his attitude towards family and the disadvantaged and, through these themes, consider his ideas about marginalized individuals and social classes. We will pay close attention to how his concepts have developed or otherwise changed over time. We read both in English translation and his original modern Japanese.
