    To represent the past century of Korean fiction, this definitive collection extends beyond familiar writers, challenges cultural norms, and crosses political borders. By inlcuding stories from neglected female, North Korean, and wolbuk writers (those who migrated to the North after 1945 and whose works were widely banned in South Korea) and by bringing politically engaged works together with experimental ones, this anthology articulates the ruptures and resolutions that have makred the peninsula. From sketches of desperate peasants in straitened circumstances to fast-moving, visceral tales of contemporary South Korea, the works in this collection bear witness to the dramatic transformations and events in twentieth-century Korean history, including Japanese colonial rule, civil war, and economic modernization in the South. The writers explore these developments through a variety of literary and political lenses, revealing wtih precision and poignancy their impact on Korean society and the lives of ordinary Koreans. This anthology includes an introduction, which synthesizes the key developments in modern Korean literature, and a comprehensive bibliography of Korean fiction in translation   http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Korean-Fiction-Bruce-Fulton/dp/0231135130/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1437532411&sr=1-1&keywords=0231135130&pebp=1437532414313&perid=141FNT9TFYXDV5YFBXBV

    A Ready Made Life is the first volume of early modern Korean fiction to appear in English in the U.S. Written between 1921 and 1943, the sixteen stories are an excellent introduction to the riches of modern Korean fiction. They reveal a variety of settings, voices, styles, and thematic concerns, and the best of them, masterpieces written mainly in the mid-1930s, display an impressive artistic maturity. Included among these authors are Hwang Sun-won, modern Korea's greatest short story writer; Kim Tong-in, regarded by many as the author who best captures the essence of the Korean identity; Ch'ae Man-shik, a master of irony; Yi Sang, a prominent modernist; Kim Yu-jong, whose stories are marked by a unique blend of earthy humor and compassion; Yi Kwang-su and Kim Tong-ni, modernizers of the language of twentieth-century Korean fiction; and Yi Ki-yúng, Yi T'ae-jun, and Pak T'ae-won, three writers who migrated to North Korea shortly after Liberation in 1945 and whose works were subsequently banned in South Korea until democratization in the late 1980s. One way of reading the stories, all of which were written during the Japanese occupation, is that beneath their often oppressive and gloomy surface lies an anticolonial subtext. They can also be read as a collective record of a people whose life choices were severely restricted, not just by colonization, but by education (either too little or too much, as the title story shows) and by a highly structured society that had little tolerance for those who overstepped its boundaries. Life was unremittingly onerous for many Koreans during this period, whatever their social background. In the stories, educated city folk fare little better than farmers and laborers. https://www.abebooks.com/9780824820718/Ready-Made-Life-Early-Masters-Modern-0824820711/plp

    A principios del siglo XX la narrativa coreana rompió con los modelos de la tradición. Un amplio grupo de autores se asomó a la vida cotidiana y contó los sufrimientos y las alegrías de su pueblo. Unos optaron por un severo realismo, otros, como Yi Sang, exploraron los senderos más arriesgados de la vanguardia. El volumen recoge una muestra de ocho de las figuras más sobresalientes del período. N° de ref. de la librería 14771

    Lee Hyoseok et al / 이효석 / 2008 / KDC구분 > literature > Korean Literature > Korean Fiction > 21st century

    A lo largo de nueve cuentos, el autor nos transporta a los rincones más profundos de la Corea rural. Los paisajes, aromas y colores de la campiña se recrean con exquisito detalle, retratando un entorno donde bosques, ríos y montañas son protagonistas tan importantes como la gente que los habita. Sin caer en folclorismos, Lee Hyo-seok expone los pormenores de la vida y costumbres campestres, en las que el clima, los ciclos lunares o un animal que escapa del corral sirven para hablar de las más profundas emociones humanas. En ese entorno agreste, donde lo terrenal y lo sublime se fusionan, el destino se muestra no como un misterio inexorable, sino como una fuerza que se manifiesta sutilmente en señales enviadas por la naturaleza.   Source: http://www.edicionesdelermitano.com/libro/cuando-florece-el-alforfon-23/
