“Robert McLiam Wilson’s View of Irishness” 単著 2001年 3月 Sugiyama Jogakuen University Journal My aim in this essay is three-fold: 1) to introduce Robert McLiam Wilson and his work to those who may have not yet encountered him, 2) to examine Wilson’s deromanticizing portrayals of Irishness in his fiction, focusing particularly on his third novel, Eureka Street, and, finally, 3) to show how Wilson presents “empathy” as the overriding human value in response to the violence and damage which has often resulted from an excessive reliance on romantic illusions of Irish national identity
“Just a Matter of Words: Addie’s Soliloquy in Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying” 単著 2002年 3月 Sugiyama Jogakuen University Journal Critical interpretation of Addie’s character is wide ranging, but critics almost without exception point to the centrality of Addie’s role in the novel. Beginning with a close reading of Addie’s chapter, this essay focuses on how Addie’s soliloquy functions as the compositional center of the novel and examines how, in the words of Eric Sundquist, Addie’s death is the “central event in the book”
“(L)imitation of Life: Cinema as Subtext in Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye” 単著 2003年 3月 “ Journal of College of World Englishes: Chukyo University This essay demonstrates how Morrison first establishes a pattern of cinematic references throughout her novel which serve to underscore the “gaze” of popular culture. I examine in detail Morrison’s use of the Shirley Temple film persona as an especially potent icon of white beauty. Finally, I argue that the one film Morrison refers to specifically, Imitation of Life, both illustrates Morrison’s thesis and acquires for itself an additional level of reading within the context of the novel.
“That Business of the Cow: A Note on the Source and Significance of William Faulkner’s Choice of Title: Light in August” 単著 2003年 3月 Sugiyama Jogakuen University Journal The significance of the title and its relation to the text of Light in August continues to be a topic of some interest in the realm of Faulkner studies. My purpose here is to provide, first, a brief history of the debate surrounding the title; second, to consider the significance of the title Light in August within the context of the novel and its major themes; and, finally, to add my own interpretation to the discussion of the relation between the title and the text.
“The Shadow of the Branch: A Review of Jay Parini’s One Matchless Time: A Life of William Faulkner, ” 単著 2004年 3月 Journal of World Englishes: Chukyo University A book review of Jay Parini’s 2004 biography of William Faulkner. In spite of some minor shortcomings, Parini’s biography adds some valuable insights into the life of William Faulkner. With a number of Faulkner biographies already in print, Parini’s book may be the best place to begin. In addition to chronicling the day-to-day, year-by- year events in Faulkner’s life, Parini also writes a kind of “reader’s guide” by providing clear, accurate synopses and rather in-depth, careful commentary to the major novels and short fiction.
“‘I Don’t Know What I’m Supposed to Want’: Conflicting American Dreams in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman” 単著 2006年 3月 Journal of Department of Foreign Studies: Sugiyama Jogakuen Universtiy In Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller presents contrasting versions of the American Dream. For the characters of Willy and Biff, which dream they accept determines whether or not they are able to survive. More than just individual dilemmas, Willy and Biff’s condition reflects Miller’s view of post-war America.
“Shock of Recognition: A Review of Timothy Gray’s Gary Snyder and the Pacific Rim: Creating Countercultural Community, ” 単著 2007年 3月 Sugiyama Jogakuen University Journal This essay presents a review of Timothy Gray’s 2006 study of the life and work of American poet Gary Snyder, focusing on Snyder’s deep connection with Asian culture, especially that of Japan, and its subsequent influence on his poetry and writings on ecology and environment.
“It Comes Up Different Every Time: Narrative Point of View in Louise Erdrich’s Tracks, ” 単著 2011年 1月 Philologia, Mie University This essay examines how Louise Erdrich employs the competing narrations of the characters Nanapush and Pauline in her novel, Tracks, to engage the reader in evaluating the opposing views of the alternating first-person narrators of this novel about loss of Native American culture. Her insistence on the value of ambiguity in the text, and her refusal to tell the “truth” foregrounds the subjective and partial nature of the telling of events.
“For A Culturally Situated Pedagogy: Academic Literacy and the English-Medium Literature Course” 共著 2015年 1月 Lit Matters:The Liberlit Journal of Teaching Literature This essay addresses the place of English-medium literature courses in the Japanese university. Focusing on the notion of a “culturally-situated pedagogy, ” we explore two aspects of this theme: (1) the teaching of the literary text embedded in culture and (2) the use of a genre-based approach to the cultivation of academic literacies.

“The Great (Big) Indian Novel: A Re-evalulation of Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy" 2008年11月 Postcolonial Literary Studies Symposium #14. Chukyo University A paper presentation arguing for a re-evaluation of Vikram Seth’s almost-1, 500-page-novel, A Suitable Boy. Whereas most critics and readers in general focus on A Suitable Boy as grounded in the tradition of the 19th-century novels of social realism, I argue for its place as one of the essential contemporary Indian novels.
“A Prelude to Disaster: Vikram Seth and the Distrust of Passion" 2009年 6月 Philologia Society Colloquium. Mie University A paper presentation providing an overview of the works of the contemporary Indian writer, Vikram Seth.
