Just remember the dark days of World War II, when the American government made a decision which was based on the fear and prejudice and concerned the interning of Japanese Americans. The Northwest is the place of location where the internment camps were based. Being hard working enough, Japanese citizens were taken from their prior jobs and homes even against their will. It was the terrible time for lots of Japanese because they hand no opportunities to tell about their wishes, tastes, ideas and intentions. They should do what they were said to do by Americans. It was really difficult for the Japanese because they had nothing to do just realize what Americans command them. World War II took away thousands of lives, but it was also hard from the psychological point of view.
It is considered to be that part of history which now people are ashamed of. Such situation was caused because of the human behavior and creating “The other” for projecting the fears, insecurities and blindness through the actions and expressions.
In the novel it is described as the person being out caused by the society because of the individuality of its representatives. In Snow Falling on Cedars, “the other” has engaged in recreating the certain points of view of citizens of Japan in spite of the fact, that there is the war against Japanese. From the very beginning to the end of the war Americans influenced psychologically and framed up an opinion on the Japanese people because of their beliefs, culture and appearance. In the turn, this made the considerable effect on the outcome of Kabuo Miyatoto’s trial that was abused in killing Carl Heine. In fact, Ishmal Chambers, a local reporter, found the evidences which clear the name of Kabuo of the murdering as the book had culmination. “The other” is clearly shown in the novel Snow Falling on the Cedars, as Kabuo throughout the novel was delineated as a man of suspicion.
This novel has definitely demonstrated the great amount of different type of features and characteristics of the person. As for the common trait, it is insecurity which frequently projected out from the person. The main sense of the novel is also demonstrated through the expression of vilifying a person or making a judgment. In the novel Snow Falling on the Cedars, Kabuo is depicted as a deceiving person because of his individual behavior and appearance. He is demonstrated to the readers as large and coarse man while the Japanese are clear-eyed and smaller.
