The Age of Doubt

February 5 - 26, 2024, Mondays, 6:30-8:30 p.m. (four sessions)


A translated collection of short stories from one of Korea’s most renowned writers, Pak Kyongni, Age of Doubt explores the postwar Korea of the 50s and 60s. A time of chaos, uncertainty, poverty, and existential doubt, postwar Korea is a far cry from the sleek and modern Korea that is today hailed as the birthplace of Kpop.

Each of the seven stories is translated by a different translator, giving us seven different interpretations in one book. In this Delve, we will not only discuss the stories themselves and their historical context but also the differences in translations and the challenges that the act of translation presents.
