Gendered Landscapes: Short Fiction by Modern and Contemporary Korean Women Novelists
Translator: Kim, Yung-Hee;
Gendered Landscapes showcases ten short stories and novellas by representative modern Korean women writers dating from the 1930s to the end of the 1990s. Thematically interlinked and compellingly told, these literary gems represent bold and astute counter-narratives to Confucian master discourses on gender order, woman’s identity, familial and conjugal morality, and other kin and interpersonal relationships that have dominated Korean society and culture for centuries. These texts testify to their authors’ creative ingenuity and refined craftsmanship in utilizing the power of storytelling. The introduction provides historical and cultural contexts from which these texts were produced, and each story is followed by its author’s biography.
