In Contemporary Japanese fiction, plot development and action have often been of secondary interest to emotional issues and the moral boundaries we often cross—or do not cross. Japanese writers born in the 20th century wrote about the issues of war, religion, and morality with a unique, more personal intent—diving deep into the human psyche.


This course is an attempt to discuss the passion and love for Haruki Murakami, Yukio Mishima  and Shūsaku Endō.
