According to the author, the Turkish military used these weapons against the Kurds in the s, thereby in his views committing human rights violations on a massive scale.
As I closed the book and stood up, I looked around my shabby apartment. Same walls, same badly painted walls, same James Dean poster, but something seemed off. The walls seemed closer or were they further away?
And James, wasn't there a cigarette clasped between your lips before? Now you're just staring off into space with that amazing, casual air of indifference.
I shut m I just finished 1Q84 and already I've begun to notice strange peculiarities in the world around me. I shut my eyes and shake my head. It's just the residual effect of Murakami's prose, I tell myself.
I went about the rest of my day as usual but late that night I fell into a restless sleep. I had the strangest dream I dreamt of him. The one I love. The one separated from me because of timing and distance and all the other inane trivialities that prevent us from taking the next logical step.
In my dream he was reading 1Q84 as well.
Well actually he was just finishing it, closing it with a self-satisfied thwack, for it is quite a tome. Then he just sat there, comtemplatively, his fingers steepled together in a pyramid under his chin.
And suddenly I appeared there with him in my dream. I, like, just walked in from off-stage and sat down on the floor in front of him cross-legged. Is it weird to appear in your own dream? I don't know if that's ever happened to me before.
Anyways, we just talked all night about 1Q84, about Tengo and Aomame, the star-crossed, NO moon-crossed lovers. We talked about the people they knew and loved. Ayumi, Komatsu and Tengo's dad. Tengo's married older lover. The dowager that befriends and mentors Aomame and her stoic level-headed gay bodyguard Tamaru.
We discussed Fuka-Eri and the strange cult, Sakigake, she escaped, and the stranger story she wrote that Tengo had been hired to ghostwrite: How this story acts as a catalyst for the whole novel, it gets is moving. How he compares them to the witches from Macbeth.
And so many literary references, it's like Murakami is name dropping! Dickens, Proust and Chekov- to name a few. And The Little People. How could we forget The Little People?! How they just appear strangely and build the elusive Air Chrysalis. The huge, womb-like, peanut-shaped, furry, glowing, egg thingy that materializes by their hands seemingly out of thin air.
What does the Air Chrysalis represent? And how does it tie in with Sakigake and Fuka-Eri? And, utimately, what's inside it? But more than anything, as I looked up into the eyes of the man I adored, we spoke of love. How this is above all A Love Story, and an unbelievably hopeful one at that. Because in 1Q84 true love exists and it matters, it makes a difference!English Literature Glossary of Literary Terms.
