"Obasan": More Than One Telling/More Than One Reading.
Byrne, Mary Ellen
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v30 n1 p30-37 Sep 2002
Discusses how in her 1981 novel "Obasan," Joy Kogawa recounts the saga of the internment and relocation of Japanese Canadians during and after the Second World War by juxtaposing the "factual" historic telling against the personal, "fictional" telling. Asks students to analyze a passage and consider such literary elements as point of view, structure, selection of details, and figurative language. (SG)
