505 0  The Paradox of Representation -- The Voice of a

       Son -- The Voice of an Incestuous Sister -- The Voices of 
       Aged Buraku Women. 
520    "How can the 'voiceless' voice be represented? This 
       primary question underpins lshikawa's analysis of selected
       work by Buraku writer, Nakagami Kenji (1946-1992). In 
       spite of his Buraku background, Nakagami' s privilege as a
       writer made it difficult for him to 'hear' and 'represent'
       those voices silenced by mainstream social structures in 
       Japan. This 'paradox of representing the silenced voice' 
       is the key theme of the book. Gayatri Spivak theorises the
       (im)possibility of representing the voice of 'subalterns, 
       ' those oppressed by imperialism, patriarchy and 
       heteronomativity. Arguing for Burakumin as Japan's 
       'subalterns, ' Ishikawa draws on Spivak to analyse 
       Nakagami' s texts. The first half of the book revisits the
       theme of the transgressive Burakumin man. This section 
       includes analysis of a seldom discussed narrative of a 
       violent man and his silenced wife. The second half of the 
       book focuses on the rarely heard voices of Burakumin women
       from the Kiyuki trilogy. Satoko, the prostitute, 
       unknowingly commits incest with her half-brother, Akiyuki.
       The aged Yuki sacrifices her youth in a brothel to feed 
       her fatherless family. The mute Moyo remains traumatized 
       by rape. lshikawa's close reading of Nakagami's 
       representation of the silenced voices of these sexually 
       stigmatized women is this book's unique contribution to 
       Nakagami scholarship"--|cProvided by publisher
