Readings in Modern Korean Literature will provide advanced students (those with at least four years of college-level training in Korean) with materials that will help them understand and appreciate modern Korean literary traditions as well as challenge them to use their Korean-language competence to the fullest extent. It offers the student a wide range of literary writing, including three different genres of poetry, short stories, and essays. Each piece is accompanied by a vocabulary glossary and notes, explanations of socio-cultural details, an introduction to the author, and a translation. The textbook is distinguished by a variety of exercises designed to enhance students' proficiency in referential reading, writing, and comprehension skills. Readings in Modern Korean Literature fills a serious gap in learner-oriented comprehensive texts for students of Korean literature and culture. It will give them the opportunity to explore the most salient themes, forms, and techniques that inform Korean literary texts and give them a sense of the flow of modern Korean literature.
