This high school English Literature quiz looks at the setting in Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go. The setting of a work of fiction includes its location and the time in which the events take place. Context, such as those events which occur in the background, providing the text’s wider fictional world, is also a key component of its setting.
