In his highly acclaimed novel Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day) created a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. In it he posed the fundamental question: What makes us human? Now director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), writer Alex Garland and DNA Films bring Ishiguro's hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen. Kathy (Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan, An Education), Tommy (Andrew Garfield, Boy A, Red Riding) and Ruth (Oscar nominee Keira Knightley, Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school and the terrible truth of their fate is revealed to them, they must also confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, , language: English, abstract: The aim of this essay is to examine the role of empathy in Kazuo Ishiguro ́s “Never Let Me Go” with special regard to the “teaching” of empathy at the boarding school of Hailsham. The essay will examine the role of the educational system in “Never Let Me Go” in order to characterize forms of teaching, education and upbringing that lead to the typical characteristics of the clones. Before dealing with the importance of the educational system for preserving public order in the dystopian world, general functions and modes of empathy in fictional writing will be discussed in an introductory part. In a conclusive part it will be argued that Kazuo Ishiguro uses a narrative style that persuades the reader to “feel with” the protagonists. By doing so the reader is led to judge the society of the dystopian world to be cruel and undesirable.

This paper discusses the uncanny in Kazuo Ishiguro's 'Never Let Me Go' starting from the definitions established by Ernst Jentsch and Sigmund Freud. The main goal is to discover how the uncanny feeling comes about in the novel. To that end, the thematic and stylistic features are examined. The most important uncanny theme in 'Never Let Me Go' is that of the doppelgänger masked as clone. The uncanny is also created by Ishiguro's writing style. He slowly reveals the novel's secret in an unsettling way. I also examined how the uncanny effect is achieved in the movie adaptation by Mark Romanek.

A hometown series full of sexy romance, humor, and heart... Sheriff Chase Lowell has never been more terrified than when he discovers the diner where Hannah Porter works has been robbed at gunpoint. He's been in love with her for as long as he can remember, but has kept his feelings in check because she's his best friend's little sister. Hannah has had a crush on Chase since she was in the third grade. He's kind, compassionate, and as handsome as they come. They've known each other forever, which seems to be the problem—he thinks of her more as a kid sister rather than a romantic interest. But something changes the night he races into the diner and crushes her in his arms. When he makes her safety his personal mission, Hannah decides to make it her mission to get him to see her in a different light. EXCERPT: A myriad of expressions crossed her face as she seemed to wage some inner war with herself. She nibbled her bottom lips as her gaze moved back and forth between his eyes and his lips. Suddenly, she hiked a leg over his lap and straddled him, effectively stealing his breath. "Sheriff, are you going shy on me?" Stunned, Chase's hands settled uncertainly at her waist as he met her smiling gaze. "Dimples, are you flirting with me?" he countered. "Maybe I am," she teased, her voice dropping to a throaty whisper. Ah, hell. His hands tightened slightly on her hips as his pulse kicked into warp speed. His gaze dropped to her mouth—that luscious mouth—as she leaned in and softly brushed her lips against his: once, then again with just a bit more pressure. Chase's eyes drifted shut as a low moan escaped him. She pulled back a few inches and whispered, "You okay?" the humor in her voice unmistakable. "Hannah...y-you don't understand..." "What don't I understand?" Her warm breath feathered across his cheek. Christ, fool, just say it! The only woman you've ever felt anything for is wrapped around you like a pretzel, yours for the taking, and all you can do is stutter like an idiot? "I want you," he finally admitted. Then quickly added, "But I don't know if this is such a good idea." She pulled back and stared at him in confusion. "Why not? I want you. You just admitted you want me, too. We're both adults. What, exactly, is the problem?" "Christ, Dimples, I've know you since you were a baby!" "And I've known you since you were a bed wetter!" she countered, laughter in her tone. "What does that have to do with anything? I mean, unless you still do, in which case I'll need to put a mattress cover on my bed." Chase gave the beautiful witch a swat on the ass. She yelped playfully and wiggled in his lap. "I never wet the bed," he insisted, though his face did grow warm over the lie. "Please. Drew and Charlie teased you about it for years. The only reason they stopped is you kicked both their asses and threatened to feed them each a worm if they ever mentioned it again." "Damn, you have a good memory." "Yep. And I have a few other good qualities as well." She leaned in next to his ear and whispered, "Which I'd be happy to show you—if you'd loosen up a bit."

Kazuo Ishiugro's 2005 novel Never Let Me Go tells the story of a number of students growing up in a boarding school in England and eventually coming to grips with their destinies, with what they are supposed to do in life. What is both tragic and radically engaging in this novel is that the students are actually clones who will have their organs harvested for the "normals" of Britian. In this first book-length study of the influential novel, Brian Willems sets the work of Ishiguro in a new philosophical key. Analyzing the ramifications the story has for thought on death, poverty and the uncanny doubling of clones, Willems shows how a shakey rational awareness of the world usually ascribed to those considered other-than-human is actually what is most fundamental about "humanity" itself. The conjunction of such critical avenues makes Ishiguro's novel essential reading, giving it a currency that resonates not only in literary circles but also in those of law, philosophy and science, as well as instigating a film adaptation. By delineating the weak ontological differences between the humans and clones in the novel, Willems argues for a renewal of the poverty-of-self we tend to forget is a large part of what we always are. Brian Willems teaches literature and film theory at the University of Split, Croatia. He holds a doctorate in Media and Communication from the European Graduate School and is the author of Hopkins and Heidegger.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (English and American Studies), course: Narrating the (dis)eased body, language: English, abstract: The meaning of humanity and dignity becomes more and more essential nowadays and a key concept in our ethical thinking in the world of modern biopolitics, possible future cloning and organ donations. The topic addresses every single one of us, since it deals with our lives and basic human rights. The Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben deals with the concept of those, whose human rights are taken away. In his work entitled Homo Sacer. Sovereign Power and Bare Life he presents the concept of a dehumanized protagonist figuring as “homo sacer”, a bad and impure man, whose life is considered to be unworthy. He proposes an idea of this figure, which is still applicable in our modern times. He links this idea ultimately to the concept of sovereignty, to whom homo sacer corresponds and with whom he correlates. The depiction of this figure and his counterpart, the sovereignty, will be closely looked at and after that Michel Foucault ́s definition of biopolitics and the relation to life and death will be given. Afterwards, we will look at Kazuo Ishiguro ́s novel Never Let Me Go, in which these concepts take shape. The novel deals with young students, who are destined to donate their vital organs before they reach middle age. We will analyze the relationship between these students and the figure of homo sacer. The character of sovereignty that comes into existence with the help of the guardians who accompany these students, will also be elaborated. We will focus on these concepts related to biopolitics and figure out, how the characters in Kazuo Ishiguro ́s novel are stripped of humanity.
