Yi Sang, who wrote during the Japanese colonial period in Korea, is considered by many critics the first modernist Korean writer. While his total work amounts to less than one thousand pages, it remains one of the most influential bodies of work in Korean literature. Dalkey Archive is pleased to publish this selection of his short stories, including the well-known stories “Wings,” “Encounters and Departures,” and “Boredom.”
