KLN is published and distributed for the purpose of generating a discourse on Korean literature and introducing Korean writers and works to general readers and experts overseas. The theme of KLN Vol. 46 is Cats and Dogs in Korean Literature. The representation of animals in literature has a long and varied history—within the classical theme of the human-nature relationship. There are stories about wild animals or tamed animals loyal to humans. In several literary works, dogs and cats appear as independent characters or partners. This issue examines portrayals of dogs and cats in contemporary Korean literature.
