dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the problem of suicide and double suicide in contemporary Japanese literature. Characters from fourteen stories are under consideration, with respect to categories such as shame, guilt, and retribution. Based on stories of six popular Japanese writers (Hoshi Shinichi’s “The Overtaking”, Atōda Takashi’s “The Hair”, “The Ghost of the Office”, “The Red Dress”, “The Visitor” and “The God of Happiness”, Akagawa Jirō’s “The Double Suicide”, “Let’s Shock”, “The Dancing Man”, “The Gossip” and “The New Worker”, Miyabe Miyuki’s “Don’t Say Anything”, Otsuichi’s “Ishinome”, and Isaka Kōtarō’s “Grasshopper”) I analyse characteristic features of these “suicide” stories in the Japanese literature of the last four decades.
