Understanding Korean Literature
M.E. Sharpe, 1997 - 230 pagina's
Understanding Korean Literature (Han'guk munhak ui ihae) introduces the development and characteristics of the various historical and contemporary genres of Korean literature in a refreshingly clear way. It also presents detailed explanations of the development of a literary Korean language and of literacy and a reading public in Korea. A brief history of literary criticism, both traditional and modern, is included to give the discussion historical context. This translation provides a long-overdue source on Korean literature that can be used as a reference or text in Korean and Asian studies courses and as a general introduction to Korean literature for students of literature.
