This book presents Kim Iryŏp's Reflections of a Zen Buddhist Nun, titled in Korean Ŏnŭ sudoin ŭi hoesang (Memoir of a practitioner, published in 1960) in English. Iryŏp was a writer, new woman, and Zen Buddhist nun whose life offers a glimpse of modern Korean society. Her life also reflects the encounter of two major religions: Christianity and Buddhism. This introduction provides a background on Iryŏp's life and thought. It first considers Iryŏp's role in the formation of the identity of the new women as a group in Korea before discussing her writings on women's issues, autobiographical essays, and religious essays. It then examines how Buddhism became one of the major themes of Iryŏp's writings. It also gives an overview of the chapters contained in Reflections of a Zen Buddhist Nun.
