For What Works The Nobel Prize Is Awarded Or Artistic Measurement Of KadzuoYsiguro’s Novel “Do Not Let Me Go”

Cover Page


The British-Japanese writer Kazuo Ishiguro was awarded the Nobel Prize for the anti-utopian novel “Do not let me go” in 2017. The authors of the article in the framework of ontological poetics consider the aesthetic advantages of the work, paying close attention to the degree of its relevance, the specifics of the artistic conflict, the advantages of the female narrative, as well as an extensive system of expressive means. The final result of the analysis is a high appreciation of the artistic mastery of the writer who is able to combine the breadth of the philosophical worldview with the fine work of a literary stylist.
