Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the general challenges of atrocity articulation, Japanese ideas on language and memory, and how these ideas are manifested in the published edition of the diary. The nokorimono mode explicated in the Diary is not exclusive, and the appearance of this mode concerned with the topic of loss in different genres can confirm its verity as a descriptive concept. Paintings that suggest the descriptive possibilities of the nokorimono mode visually are Tsukasa Osamu's series entitled Nokosareta katachi. Overall, it can be said the nokorimono descriptive mode denotes emotional content and implies the existence of a significant incident (jiken ) in history. The political view of conflict situations can be interpreted from the usage or non-usage of the mode. These issues are especially resonant in genres concerned with the objective reporting of history such as journalism and textbook writing.

Keywords: diary; Japanese ideas; nokorimono mode; paintings; Tsukasa Osamu
