  • Product Description
  • “The Swordswoman” is very exceptional in that its protagonist is a swordswoman. The double-layered plot is also highly unusual: two women, a mistress and her slave, join forces for vengeance, after which the mistress takes her own life, and the protagonist—the slave—conceals her identity and becomes the concubine of a well-respected scholar. Some years later, this woman decides to leave the scholar upon realizing that his strengths consist of a handful of trifling tricks and that they fall far short of “grand enough principles to govern the world and serve as norms for posterity.” This man was So Eung-cheon (1704–1760), a scholar of some note in the mid-18th century. While this work recounts a tale of imaginary retribution and dazzling martial arts, it may ultimately be underhanded ridicule of the aristocracy of the time.
