Barn Burning written by Haruki Murakami tells a story that the boyfriend of a young woman whom “I” met at an acquaintance's wedding has an addiction to burning down barns. He tells “me” the next one he will burn is very close by my house. But as time goes by, the barns around my house remain intact whenever “I” inspect. Yet the young woman disappears into thin air. This paper intends to clarify the deep connotation of the story from three important metaphors.
