100 Years of Modern Korean Literature in English CD-ROM


The modern literary history of Korean has been compiled in English and published on a CD-ROM, entitled ``The 100 Years of Modern Korean Literature.''

Designed to promote Korean literature overseas and assist foreign scholars' study of Korean literature, the CD provides a comprehensive outlook on major Korean writers and their works, as well as their biographical records and photos.

The English database has entries on 340 writers - 121 poets, 142 novelists and others, including the noted poet Baek Seok (1912-1963) and such contemporaries as Hwang Ji-u (1952 -) and Jeong Ho-seung (1950-).

The database was constructed by Seoul National University's Institute for Research on Information Systems in the Humanities and sponsored by the Korean Translation Foundation (KTF) and the Culture-Tourism Ministry.

As an English encyclopedia of Korean literature, it consists of six parts: ``An Introduction of Modern Korean Literature," "Authors,'' "Works,'' ``Media,'' ``The Gallery of the Representative Authors,'' and ``The Gallery of the Representative Works.''

The introduction, outlining the main currents in Korean literature, conveniently divides Korea's literary history into several periods and explicates major Korean writers' literary works, incidents, and episodes in each period.

``We hope this CD-ROM will play a vital role in promoting Korean literature overseas,'' said the institute's Prof. Kwon Young-min in the preface of the CD-ROM title.

The Culture-Tourism Ministry and the KTF financed the institute's database project with government grants. The KTF is also working on the construction of an Internet homepage (www.ktf.or.kr) to provide the database online.

Listed in the English encyclopedia are about 500 literary works, including critical essays and dramas. …
