The three stories gathered in this volume display Yi, Sang's inventive manipulation of autobiographical elements, a method which expands his intensely private narratives into broader meditations on love, life, and death. "The Wings," a dark allegory of infidelity and self-deception, probes the ambiguities of perception and language through an unreliable narrator who bears an uncanny resemblance to the author himself. "Encounters and Departures," a tale of ill-fated love revolving around erotic passion and physical illness as metaphors presents a female protagonist modelled on the woman who was, in real life, the author's muse and femme fatale. Similarly, in "Deathly Child," Yi, Sang offers a witty, incisive examination of sexual mores through a fictional reenactment of his ambivalent feelings toward the woman he married toward the end of his life.

About the Author:

During his brief 27 years, Yi, Sang (born Kim, Hae-Gyeong in Seoul, 1910) produced poetry, fiction and essays that introduced innovations in form and language and delved into the complexities of passion and the indeterminate nature of self. Educated in schools run by the Japanese colonial authorities, he encountered the works of the European avant-garde that served as the basis for his own experimentations. Yi, who suffered from tuberculosis, died in Tokyo, where his illness was worsened by a period of imprisonment on charges of thought offense." In 1977, the Yi Sang Literature Prize, recognizing high achievement in Korean fiction, was established in his honor.
