Feminist Horror and Millennial Anxiety in South Korean Literature

July 5 - 19, 2022
Tuesdays, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. (three sessions)

$130

Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung  and Love in the Big City by Sang Young Park have just been translated into English from the original Korean and have recently been longlisted for the Booker prize. Though very different from one another, by reading both we can get a taste of the exciting landscape that is modern Korean literature. Cursed Bunny is a short story collection that combines magic realism, horror and science fiction to address the real-life horrors of capitalism and patriarchy. Love in the Big City is a novel that captures the millennial loneliness and love affairs of a queer Seoulite.

Texts:

Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung

Love in the Big City by Sang Young Park
