Beschreibung

Gwangju, South Korea, 1980. In the wake of a viciously suppressed student uprising, a boy searches for his friend's corpse, a consciousness searches for its abandoned body, and a brutalised country searches for a voice. In a sequence of interconnected chapters the victims and the bereaved encounter censorship, denial, forgiveness and the echoing agony of the original trauma.
Human Acts is a universal book, utterly modern and profoundly timeless. Already a controversial bestseller and award-winning book in Korea, it confirms Han Kang as a writer of immense importance.

A truly haunting story, which is linked to the author's own life and the Gwangju Uprising (1980s South Korea), meditating on: What is humanity? In how far is cruelty engrained in it? In how far community and conscience? What is the essence of a person and where does it go? How can we learn from history? These and many more impor... A truly haunting story, which is linked to the author's own life and the Gwangju Uprising (1980s South Korea), meditating on: What is humanity? In how far is cruelty engrained in it? In how far community and conscience? What is the essence of a person and where does it go? How can we learn from history? These and many more important, pressing questions are addressed throughout a multitude of previously unheard voices. A moving piece of literature, which is very eloquently written.

Tender, yet shocking

Again novelist Han Kang ('The Vegetarian') created a shocking, yet so tender and touching piece of written art.

Her narration of the students uprising in Gwangju 1980 is kind of a portrait of individuals - those who suffer physically as well as those who suffer psychologically. Kangs quiet writing is the perfect form to remember the cruelty of those dark days.
