Lecture title: Haruki Murakami and His Persistent Dialogues with the Mystery of Humanity
Murakami Haruki’s adventurous fiction consists, in always the same manner, of his protagonist’s journey from his contemporary reality to the realm of the mysterious and surreal.
By reading his major fiction, from Wild Sheep Chase to Killing Commendatore, Dr. Sekine will discuss how and why Murakami persistently dialogues with the mystery intrinsic, in particular, to the individual and collective memories of human histories and mythologies.
