The paper entitled “Reality through the lens of print media in Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go” aims to explore the literary perspective and mainly engages with the themes of the novel. It also examines various kinds of medical issues related to cloning and organ transplants, in which human clones are forced to donate their organs in an alternate reality, set in 1990s England. The storyline does not evolve around any legal proceedings, nor is there any direct reference to the law. Instead, Ishiguro actually confronts the reader with a state of lawlessness. He depicts a world characterized by an uncertain distance separating the characters and the law. By reading Ishiguro from law and literature perspective, a new understanding of the various nuances is formed. Those nuances interconnect to form the complex socio-legal configuration. This paper focuses on the concept of existential anguish in the context of the novel’s story. It also encourages the readers to study the real meaning and purpose of human life.
