The Real Modern: An Interview

Chris Hanscom’s new book explores literary modernism in the work of three writers who were central to literary production in 1930s Korea.In addition to offering a fascinating window into modern Korean literature, he also uses the example of Korean modernism to open up the way we think of comparative literature and literary history more broadly. You can listen to our conversation about it here.
