As a famous Japanese-British writer, Kazuo Ishiguro initially attracted the attention of society for his special identity. However, he has always been committed to writing for people of different nationalities and generations, and he considers himself an international writer. This thesis will examine his books A Pale View of the Hills and An Artist of the Floating World in terms of trauma theory, exploring the traumatic events, the performance of the traumatized, the causes of trauma, the techniques of trauma narrative and the ways of healing. The exploration of these painful experiences in his novels not only reflects the social significance of Ishiguro's literary work, but also contributes greatly to solving the problem of trauma in real society.
