"Touted as one of Korea's most important works of fiction, Three Generations (published in 1931 as a serial in Chosun Ilbo) charts the tensions of the Jo family in 1930s Japanese-occupied Seoul. Delving deeply into each character's history and beliefs, Yom Sang-seop illuminates the diverse pressures and impulses that drive them. This Korean classic, often compared to Junichiro Tanizaki's The Makioka Sister, reveals the coutnry's situation under Japanese rule, the traditional Korean familial structure, and the battle between the modern and the traditional. The long-awaited publication of this tour de force is a vital addition to the Korean literary canon available in English."--BOOK JACKET.
