This book is a compilation of 51 articles originally published in the online newsletter of the Academy of Korean Studies, which has been running since 2009. The Jangseogak Archives of the AKS houses more than 120,000 royal books from the Joseon Dynasty, along with 170,000 private documents collected from across the country. From these materials, 51 remarkable works have been carefully selected to narrate the story of their lives and voices. The protagonists of the stories in this book are very diverse. From kings in palaces to slaves in the countryside, they all strived to make the best of their circumstances. The stories are both surprising and unexpected, capturing the struggles of governing a nation as well as the poignant moments of selling themselves. The stories of these people, captured in the documents, provide an unparalleled opportunity to look into the daily lives of the Joseon Dynasty throughout history.
