Departmental Bulletin Paper Joy Kogawa's Obasan: Incarnational Theology and Shinto Materiality

マグラス, ポール D.

Critics agree that Joy Kogawa's Obasan is a work charged with a powerful spirituality. This paper attempts to analyze that spirituality by identifying elements of Christian Incarnational theology as well as Shinto materiality. An understanding of Kogawa's unique blending of these elements helps the reader to understand the protagonist Naomi's moments of enlightenment in the final pages of the novel.
