Shusaku Endo’s last novel Deep River is regarded as the culmination of his Christian literature. Through a close reading of the text, Shusaku’s profound retrospection on border crossing and Postcolonialism can be found in this work. This study intends to explore a series Postcolonial issues such as war and violence, empire and colonies, hierarchy and subaltern by examining the protagonist Numata’s experience in the colonial city Dalian and his thinking about the relationship between human and animals, Kiguchi’s experience in Burma campaign and his return from the battlefield, the spatial significance of India as the place where the event of Indira Priyadarshini Ghandi’s assassination happened and Otsu’s “exile” from the Christian world, etc.
Keywords: Shusaku Endo, Deep River, Postcolonialism, Mobility, Hierarchy
