The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence.… (més)

This is a quiet, gentle and thoughtful snapshot of a bygone time. The reminisces of Mr Stevens, a butler, as he embarks on a journey to Cornwall to visit an old friend and fellow employee, Miss Kenton.

It is a wonderfully written tale of a life-time of servitude and the pride and professionalism that Mr Stevens shows. It feels realistic and genuine, the characters are vivid and portrayed with kindness and politeness so you can feel, understand and sympathise with them, it is an unusual story. Mr Stevens may appear rather pompous, but related from his perspective we have a different insight. Reminiscing opens up a window to his heart that is really quite sad.

Each book I have read by Kazuo Ishiguro makes me re-visit the impression I had of it. There is something under-stated in his writing that leaves an impression that requires revisiting days after finishing the book, a nuance that was missed perhaps or a different perspective. ( )

The author manages an impressive feat in this book: to totally inhabit the person of Mr Stevens and to gradually understand how his life turned out the way it did. Nothing much happens as such but it's what doesn't happen that is at the heart of the narrative. There is an overwhelming sense of regret and lost opportunities which I found profoundly moving. ( )

The Remains of the Day is about Stevens, a butler in a “grand old English house”. He spent his life trying to be a “great” butler in the service of Lord Darlington. With the death of Darlington he remains in Darlington Hall working for the new owner a rich American, Mr Farraday. It is at Mr. Farraday’s suggestion that Stevens, our narrator, first begins thinking about taking a short trip out into the English countryside, and to see Miss Kenton. Now Mrs. Benn she recently sent him a letter, hinting, Stevens thinks, at her unhappy marriage and her wish to return to service in Darlington Hall. On his journey Stevens reflects over his life and the changes he has seen.

We can work out the date of Stevens's expedition ... Ominous dates. ... the Suez crisis dominated British current affairs. ... Stevens is not returning to a golden evening ... there are no remains -- except in the sense of `corpse'.
afegit per KayCliff | editaWhere was Rebecca shot?, John Sutherland (Mar 5, 1998)
 
The Remains of the Day is too much a roman à thèse, and a judgmental one besides. Compared to his astounding narrative sophistication, Ishiguro's message seems quite banal: Be less Japanese, less bent on dignity, less false to yourself and others, less restrained and controlled. The irony is that it is precisely Ishiguro's beautiful restraint and control that one admires, and, in the case of the last novel [The Remains of the Day], his nerve in setting up such a high-wire act for himself.
afegit per jburlinson | editaNew York Review of Books, Gabriele Annan (Web de pagament) (Dec 7, 1989)
 
Kazuo Ishiguro's tonal control of Stevens' repressive yet continually reverberating first-person voice is dazzling. So is his ability to present the butler from every point on the compass: with affectionate humor, tart irony, criticism, compassion and full understanding. It is remarkable, too, that as we read along in this strikingly original novel, we continue to think not only about the old butler, but about his country, its politics and its culture.

The English landscape at its finest—such as I saw this morning—possesses a quality that the landscapes of other nations, however more superficially dramatic, inevitably fail to possess. It is, I believe, a quality that will mark out the English landscape to any objective observer as the most deeply satisfying in the world, and this quality is probably best summed up by the term 'greatness.' And yet what precisely is this greatness? I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it.
