Abstract

Reviews 567 Haboush, especially the notion of “socio-textual community” (2), and com- parisons to other East Asian societies, are quite interesting, and although she touches on some of these issues in her introduction, they certainly warrant further in-depth study. This project was a signifi cant undertaking, involving numerous scholars who work on the Choso ˘n period. With so many contributors it was unavoid- able that the selections would represent varying degrees of translation skill and consequent ease of reading; and for the same reason the introductory es- says that precede each letter lack consistency when taken as a whole. These are minor fl aws, however, that do not detract materially from the contribu- tion the volume makes to the fi eld. To date, there has been a dearth of source material available in English that focuses on Choso ˘n society. Epistolary Korea helps fi ll this gap and is a sig- nifi cant contribution and complement to the available texts. The collection is also appropriate for instructors who have been searching for strong source material covering early modern Korea. Those instructors and their students should fi nd this a most welcome volume. Joy S. Kim Françoise Simonet-Tenant. Journal personnel
