Divorce (Yeoyu): 4

Kim Soom, Emily Yae Won (Translator), Nathan Hamilton (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


A poet reflects on the lives of the different generations of women around her as she contemplates her own divorce from a socially-engaged photographer; her feelings are complicated by the ethics of public/private, art/life divisions, as well as the country’s contemporary history. The story reveals the raw complexity of gender dynamics in a society still hobbled by the demands forced on its people through war and ideology and rapid modernization; it is a good reminder of the different feminisms that do and must exist.
