Abstract: 

This study aims to investigate the nature of trauma and its representation in "Super-frog Saves Tokyo, " by Haruki Murakami. Psychoanalytically and in particular through the lens of Slavoj ?i?ek, the unexpected intrusion of the real into the symbolic order is called trauma, which gains meaning only in retrospect.
Different subjects respond differently to their trauma. Some of them avoid their traumatic memories and so expunge traces of trauma by situating, in fantasy, the origin of loss elsewhere. In such cases subjects represent their trauma through narrative fetishism. "Super-frog Saves Tokyo" belongs to After the Quake (2002) collection of short stories, which is an indirect description of the traumatic event of Kobe earthquake. In the selected short story, Murakami makes use of the inherent duality of magical realism in order to depict the nature of trauma and its representation. This article is a case study that explores the paradoxical nature of trauma and its representa.
