ESCOBAR-JIMENEZ, Christian. UBIQUOS AND INVISIBLE: SERVANTS IN THE REMAINS OF THE DAY BY KAZUO ISHIGURO. Acta lit. [online]. 2020, n.61, pp.73-92. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29393/al61-11uice10011.

Abstract: This paper analyzes the english novel The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro, published in 1989 and which he obtained the Booker Prize and gave him international recognition. This work focuses in three analytic perspectives: The pro blem of servants in England and the status that main carachter, Stevens, gives to his profession around the concept of "dignity". Second one, the historical context of Suez Crisis which marks the finish of English Empire, because this is the year when Stevens narrates the events of his life. The change of ownership of mansion where Stevens works, from an English lord to an American gentleman, creates the context. Finally, it makes a brief reference about how Ishiguro uses the History to build his stories.
