Buried in a Stained Sweater: The Politics of Misogyny in Hwang Sunwn's "Sonagi" By Heinz Insu Fenkl 1. Introduction: Hwang as Wang Hwang Sunwn wrote short fiction over a period that spans three quarters of modern Korean literary history; his prose style ranges widely--from realism, to O. Henry-esque trick endings, to avant-garde minimalism, to French-influenced surrealism--and as a counterpoint to his stylistic innovations, his work also explores the effects of industrialization, capitalism, and--more recently-- cultural imperialism, on traditional Korea. Hwang's work also implicitly addresses the major traumas of modern Korean history: the Japanese Annexation, the Korean War, and the continued bifurcation of the country into north and south. Following his debut as a poet in 1931, he published well over a hundred short stories, seven novels, and two poetry collections; he won every major Korean literary award, including the Korean Literature Grand Prize; his works have been adapted as stage dramas and films; and, significantly, he has been translated into English more than any other Korean writer, living or dead. In fact, during his lifetime it was long the hope of certain Korean ministries that Hwang would be Korea's first contender for the Nobel Prize in literature.1 1.
