In Yumiko Kurahashi’s first full-length novel Dark Journey, published in October 1961, the relationship between Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir is repeatedly mentioned, and Kurahashi's hero and heroine certainly have a similar relationship to that of the couple depicted in Beauvoir's La Force de l’âge. However, few studies have ever focused on the relevance of Beauvoir's autobiographical volume to Kurahashi's novel. In this paper, by comparing the two writings, I analyze how in that period Kurahashi 's views on love, marriage and maternity were influenced by those of Beauvoir.
