In this paper, the first three published novels of Haruki Murakami and “Dance, Dance, Dance” are examined in discussion of four topics under the alter ego of the protagonist. The paper is divided into four chapters, the first three analyses individually the characters of the Rat, the Sheep Man, and Gotanda as they represent the alter ego of the protagonist. The final chapter focuses on the comparison and changes of the three mentioned characters.
The first topic is centred around the first three publications, exploring into the change of relationship between the protagonist and the Rat since the time of the two characters’ meeting until the moment of the Rat’s suicide. Through a comparative analysis of the two characters and their family relations, this paper argues that the base reason why the protagonist searches for an alter ego is related to a lack of a close parental relationship as a child.
The second topic studies the Sheep Man and the change which takes place in this character from A Wild Sheep Chase to Dance, Dance, Dance, as well as the process of his transformation into the alter ego of the protagonist. Through this discussion, this paper will track the transition of the alter ego as it is inherited from the Rat to the Sheep Man, as well as the linkage role the character of the Sheep Man plays between the books.
The third topic analyses the alter ego relationship between Gotanda and the protagonist. In order to eliminate the self-positioning chaos, Gotanda killed Kiki who is “the Shadow”. Failing to escape from the closed circulation, he chose to commit suicide. The protagonist experiences resonance with Gotanda’s feelings and further views him as an alter ego. The suicide of Gotanda symbolizes the separation of the protagonist from his old, closed off self before he moves on.
The fourth topic compares the change of relationships between the Rat, the Sheep Man, and Gotanda to the protagonist. Through this process, this paper finds that the protagonist’s lack of a close relationship with their family results in a failure to manifest an original alter ego relationship, thus causing the protagonist’s pursuit for an alter ego. In Hear the Wind Sing, the protagonist’s reflection on their past behaviour, pursued out of a sense of loss, therefore becomes a model. The protagonist assures his self-positioning through constantly reflecting on the past and the seeking of an alter ego, and through these actions he reaches the final goal of a personal transformation.
