A Transformation | Kang | Najbar-Miller

A Transformation | Kang | Najbar-Miller

The heroine of Han Kang’s novel gives up eating meat overnight. This decision changes her life, as well as all her relations with the world. The community in which she lives is extremely conservative. People from her close and more distant social circles instantly react to any deviation from what they consider to be the norm. They see it as a betrayal of tradition, and thus they do everything they can to make the protagonist relinquish her decision and bring her back again to the ‘fold’. However, she adamantly refuses to do so. She experiences an internal conflict. She has a nightmare in which her unconscious fears come to the fore. We will talk to Han Kang about the complex factors behind the emotional transformations that we sometimes undergo and about their social consequences, especially those that in the long-term will determine the fate of our world.
