This book is a compilation of female narratives focused on themes such as post-war society, East Asia, and the female in literary works by South Koreans, North Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Koreans living in Japan, and Okinawans. By comparing various female narratives across the region, this interesting volume unveils how certain aspects of East Asian lives overlap or are clearly distinct from one another. Part 1 examines the points of contact between the female narratives of the Korean peninsula, China and Japan. Part 2 explores the possibility of East Asian female solidarity based on the boundaries and intersections shown in female literature by Okinawans, Koreans living in Japan and Taiwanese. Part 3 highlights, from an East Asian perspective, the achievements and significance of feminist narratives through notable writers and works which have emerged from Korean and Japanese literary field. This book aims to discuss the aforementioned female narratives at the level of the East Asian community, thereby expanding the analysis beyond states and local regions.
