“The present anthology introduces to an English-reading audience a playwright whose passion for truth could not be staunched by decades of censorship and whose imagination lit the way for many younger playwrights now at the forefront of South Korean theater...[this book will] not only advance the study of Korean dramatic literature, [it] will provide insights into Kang-baek Lee’s universal humanity and his unquestioned contributions to Korean culture.” – Richard Nichols, Professor of Theater, Penn State University
Allegory of Survival: The Theater of Kang-baek Lee (Hardcover) by translated by Alyssa Kim and Hyung-jin Lee
This translation is the first English-language anthology culled from Kang-baek Lee's works of more than forty plays and a major contribution to the limited English-language translations of modern South Korean drama in general.
