Kang Kyŏngae

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter reviews Kang Kyŏngae's works. Throughout the 1930s, she published short stories, poems, essays, and longer works of fiction in major newspapers and women's journals such as the Chosŏn Daily, East Asia Daily and New Woman. When her works had been collected, edited, and published and thus had been made more accessible, scholars used her writings as a window into the lives of laborers, peasants, prostitutes, guerilla fighters, and other marginalized members of Korean colonial society. Scholarship on Kang's writings has focused on the critical realism that characterizes her depictions of the lives of women and the poor and her treatment of class and gender.

Keywords:   Kang Kyŏngae, Chosŏn Daily, East Asia Daily, New Woman, critical realism
