About This Book
There are many different ways to review the writings of any kind.Here we have an
old novel written by a woman who grew up in China and understood the cultural
differences. It is by no means the most accurate description of Korean history
or the way people lived of her time. However, I ended up admiring her attempt to
know better and in the end to have understood the people and the way of their
living and struggle. Nobody can understand the cultural differences and the
values of the society unless we live on both sides of the world. That was what
she did and used it for her writing. It was a good writing as a novel and
described exactly the way of living of the Korean people during the late 19th
and early 20th centuries. Unbelievable? That is because you have no idea of the
real core of different cultures.For example, my family maintains 1,000 years of
written history of family geneology of my clan.It shows how we died during the
struggle and how we maintain our family by a written code of conduct based on
Humanism. That is the reason why Korean are nationalistic.That was accurately
described in her writing. -- Choon-Kee Lee
