Korean Literature

This volume, Korean Literature: Its Classical Heritage and Modern Breakthroughs, consists of 24 articles that are still considered valuable in the field as academic articles or critical essays that have appeared in the Korea Journal over the past 40 years. The articles were carefully selected under the guidance of Professor Hwang Jong-yon.

The present volume is divided into five major themes. Part I includes an explanation of the historical and critical bases for understanding modernity as expressed in Korean literature. Part II consists of major reviews of representative writers and their works over the past 100 years of Korean modern literature. Part III is a compilation of explanatory writings that facilitate readers' comprehension of traditional literary genres--from pansori to Korean poetry in Chinese--and their aesthetics and ideology, which have influenced both the creation and critique of contemporary Korean literature. Part IV critically evaluates the literatures of both North and South Korea after the Korean War. The final section approaches Korean literature from an international perspective in examining the literature of Korean immigrants living abroad.

In recent days, both researchers and general readers outside Korea have taken an increasing interest in Korean literature. Accordingly, translations of and writings about Korean literature have been increasingly produced.

We hope this volume can serve as a textbook and reference manual for scholars, students, and anyone else interested in Korean literature.

Good morning Jackie,I read about this yesadrety and though it was an interesting turn in policy considering the way they have been cutting foreign teachers in the public school system. To make the matter more confusing, this morning's JoongAng Ilbo writes that the MOE is hiring 2,300 Korean teachers who are fluent in English to fill positions in school system. I wonder which it is: native-English speaking teachers (i.e., foreigners?) or Korean teachers who are fluent in English?Perhaps my understanding of native-English speaking teachers is different from the MOE's usage of the term? I enjoy reading your blog!Best,Amanda [url=]pgozktcimw[/url] [link=]qvcbnl[/link]

Yeah I guess because I haven't relaly had anything to "cry" about since I've been here, I've never come up against this phrase before. I'll ask around about it. I'm glad it happened more than once so I could work out that it's something to do with something that they say in Korean, and not just one person asking an extremely odd, highly personal (to me) question.
