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 by Anton Hur and have recently been shortlisted and longlisted (respectively) 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. In addition to discussing the themes present in both texts, we will discuss translation and how it affects our understanding and interaction with the work.

Texts:

Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung (Translated by Anton Hur)

Love in the Big City by Sang Young Park (Translated by Anton Hur)
