The author challenges her readers through her creative interpretations of Buddhist doctrines and Buddhist worldview, her reflections on the meaning of Buddhist practice, and her capacity to put together diverse aspects of human existence. In this process, the reader will also get a new insight on modern Korean literature which has been dominated by patriarchal reading and a new vision on the Korean New Women whose ideas and contributions to Korean society and intellectual world have long been in the shadow, silenced in the name of modernization and nation-building.
