Summary:"Examines the critical and literary production of Pak T'aewon, Kim Yujong, and Yi T'aejun, whose works confront the "crisis of representation" from loss of faith in language as a vehicle of meaningful reference to the world. Bridging literary and colonial studies, this re-reading of modernist fiction within the imperial context illuminates links between literary practice and colonial discourse"--Provided by publisher.
