The Vegetarian by Kang Han
“The Vegetarian” by Korean author Han Kang revolves around Yeong-hye, a seemingly ordinary woman who decides to stop eating meat after having a disturbing and vivid dream. Her decision to become a vegetarian triggers a chain of events that unravel the complexities of her family relationships and societal norms. As her family and society try to comprehend and control her unconventional choice, Yeong-hye’s mental state deteriorates, leading to a series of disturbing and surreal incidents. The novel delves into themes of identity, rebellion, mental health, and the oppressive nature of societal expectations, all while exploring the consequences of one woman’s defiance against cultural norms. Han Kang’s powerful storytelling and haunting prose make “The Vegetarian” a thought-provoking and critically acclaimed work that delves into the depths of human psychology and societal pressures.
