little mote 25 starsWith the Winter Olympics being held in Pyeongchang South Korea I thought it would be itting to read a work of Korean literature during the month of February and a collection of short stories rom an author that is advertised as a modern Franz Kafka definitely sounded appealing I am very much ond of works that are outside of the box and absurdist as well so or its ace value this collection looked like it was just what I was looking Why Diets Make Us Fat for Unfortunately Ielt that this collection was mediocre at best While the concepts were great the characters were zero dimensional While giving little depth to these characters could be a strategy there was nothing that these characters had to offer that gave me the reader any interest to want to continue reading Dont

with a Beige Sofa Jin his wife Seo and their baby adjust to living in a new houseCanning Factory The strict but punctual plant manager of a canningactory does not show up one day drawing suspicion on his disappearanceA lot of these concepts were interesting and I Strange Son: Two Mothers, Two Sons, and the Quest to Unlock the Hidden World of Autism feel that this material will be subject to rereading and studyingor its use of absurdism at some point in time As works that exercise your mind and are meant to be thought about critically this did a good job As stories though they were difficult to get through with uninteresting characters and a vague ability to set the scene I eel that with A Writer Like Franz Kafka writer like Franz Kafka information we learned about him and his ability to not limit his boundaries had an impact on how we saw his writing I would even say that George Saunders writes in a similar manner and with a work like The Semplica Girl Diaries it explores an outlandish idea but it connects to a very logical argument These stories do not engage in this practice They are very dullI may return to looking over some of these works at some point in time but or now I did not enjoy this and would not encourage others to check this out There are so many other better absurdist writers like Franz Kafka George Saunders and Lewis Carroll I Rejected Rejected Rejected found it difficult to read and a bit boring Mostly because all the short stories were or less the same and had the same ending which was that there was no definite ending thusor someone like me it was infinitely bothersome However there was a lot of concepts worth thinking over and a lot of symbols that are Listening: The Last Poems of Margaret Avison fun to analyse and think what they could actually mean Overall it did a good job portraying what a pointless plain and depressing our daily life is and I did like the subtle humour that was borderline tragic due to the circumstances however it wasn t my cup of tea. Ar in anticipating the event Evening Proposal reissues the warning that the orderliness and system that civilization created in order to confront nature's chaos is inact the hell of monotony. ,
OnHowever even if there are a Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life in and Out of Jazz few weak points there s a lot to like about Evening Proposal It s marked by a straightorward tone telling unusual stories about people sleep walking through their lives even when confronted by bizarre events and when Pyun gets it right the stories certainly leave an impression There s of her work coming in English with Sora Kim Russell s translation of the novel The Hole out in August in the US Buck: A Memoir from Arcade Publishing On the basis of this one I think it might be work keeping an eye outor These stories all seem to share a theme of being lost whether physically or as in losing control over one s direction in life or both The atmosphere is similar Oh, the Things They Invented!: All About Great Inventors for each story and there are definitely certain themes monotonous work one s employment not mattering travel being stuck in a situation and not being able to get out etc I m sure there are parallels that I m not catching as well like the life of the rabbit probably being a metaphoror the life of the protagonist Regardless I enjoyed these I wish I had spaced each story out a bit so I could come back to them with breaks in between I might do that the next time I read Pyun s Hye young s work He would Yikes, Vikings! (Canadian Flyer Adventures Series from time to time get a paper cut and that was the only type of scar he d ever haveEvening Proposal by Pyun Hye Young is another in the very worthwhile Dalkey Archive Library of Korean Literature and the 16th of the 26 book series I have readThis is a short story collection 8 stories all a very uniform 20 24 pages This is an important genre in Korean literature arguably the dominant one but not my personalavourite Five Days Left form and that rather influenced my view of the book The stories seem to stop just as they get going and while there is some commonality of theme these are ultimately individual stories originally published separately in various publications before being bought together in this collection and if anything some of the common themes wore a little with repetition However I very much lookorward to the Searching for Robert Johnson forthcoming novels in Englishrom Pyun Hye YoungThe translation is by Park Youngsuk and Gloria Cosgrove Smith both new to me It certainly reads well although there was the odd awkward phrase For example the opening story Blood on Silk features the odd English phrase older alumnus multiple 20 times This would be a literal translation of the Korean but it is a much natural and common term in Korean and here in English mentor senior superior would all work much better Even odder checking the Korean the word used appears to be which anyway is closer to the English words I suggested Translators such as the inaugral MBI winning Deborah Smith Jung Yewon at the highly literary end of the spectrum and Sora Kim Russellor natural English prose have rather raised the bar on Korean English and this isn t in that league Indeed one can make a direct comparison in the opening story as Sora Kim Russell has also translated it albeit under the rather odd title O Cuniculi at Words Without Borders Korean original also here Taking a key line Buzz: A Graphic Reality Check for Teens Dealing With Drugs and Alcohol for example The Korean original The translation in this book You must catch and brings back the targeted object the older alumnus continued It s as simple as that What to catch and what to do with it afterwards broil boil throw away or stuff making those decisions isn t the roleor a hunting dog nosing through the woods It is Honoring the Medicine: The Essential Guide to Native American Healing for the owner who orders and watches Therefore all the dog has to do is run in theield even to his death until he makes the catchRabbit TombSora Kim Russell S Version Russell s version naturally and compactly You retrieve the game The master decides what to catch and whether to roast it boil it toss it out or stuff it Not the hunting dog racing through the woods The master gives the command then watches as you run like mad until the game is caught Rabbit Tomb O CuniculiRabbit Tomb was actual my avourite of the stories although in part because I read it irst before several other similar tales A rather haunting tale of the Bill Carey Rides West/The Town No Guns Could Tame/Bowdrie Rides a Coyote Trail futile empty and monotonous life of a clerical worker sent on
