The theme of KLN Vol. 57 is “In Search of Lost Hope.” It discusses the gap between Korean society and the hope embedded in the narrative of contemporary Korean literature and gives implications about the present state of Korean literature. The Featured Writer section presents an interview by poet Lee Sumyeong as well as 10 of her poems and an essay on Lee’s literary world. The Bookmark section features the short stories, “Half of Half on Half” by Cheon Un-yeong and “Landscapes and Love” by Wi Soo Jung, as well as four poems by You Hee-kyoung and Baek Eunsun, and the classic tale of Jeon Unchi. In the Cover Feature section, three essays by literary critics Park Hye-jin, Yiso, and Jung Hongsoo examine the way Korean literature looks at and portrays hope.
