Myths of Korea
"Comprised of seven foundation myths, ten shamanist myths from the Korean mainland, and nine shamanist myths from Cheju Island, "Myths of Korea" presents twenty-six myths in accurate and readable translation, mostly for the first time in English. To make them more easily understandable to the general reader, these myths have been rewritten according to their central narrative plot. The corpus assembled here holds out manifold possibilities for future research - a comparative study of myths in general and hamanist myths in particular.
