“This was the body of a beautiful young woman, conventionally an object of desire, and yet it was a body from which all desire had been eliminated. But this was nothing so crass as carnal desire, not for her—rather, or so it seemed, what she had renounced was the very life that her body represented.”
– Han Kang
Public and participative discussion on the mesmerising symbolism of Han Kang’s The Vegetarian (2007).
