Abstract

Abstract:

This article explores Kazuo Ishiguro’s use of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to reflect on the formation of British identity on a deep time scale to suggest alterity as inherent within the nation’s foundational fictions. We argue Ishiguro borrows tactics from SGGK to destabilize the clarity of national origins.
