Haruki Murakami "Barn Burning" is a short story announced in January 1983. But it was rewritten in September 1990, collected to "Haruki Murakami complete works (1979-1989)". The change in the theme is seen in two "Barn Burning", and individual era (the 1980's and the 1990's) property is reflected. The purpose of my study is to describe the change in the story intention of Murakami in two "barn burning".The feature of "Barn Burning (1983)" was vagueness, in a word, the concurrent world. As for it, the sensibility in the era of the 1980's was reflected. However, Murakami was intent on "Story" in 1990, and vagueness is cut out at this time. The intention of Murakami who go from the concurrent world (vagueness) to "Story" appears remarkably in two "Barn Burning".
