Black Flower (Korean Edition) by Kim Young-ha

검은 꽃 / 김영하 저


In 1904, facing war and the loss of their nation, more than a thousand Koreans leave their homes for the promise of land in unknown Mexico. After a long sea voyage, these emigrants — thieves and royals, priests and soldiers, orphans and entire families — discover that they have been sold into indentured servitude.

Aboard the ship, the orphan Ijeong fell in love with a nobleman’s daughter; separated when the hacendados claim their laborers, he vows to find her. Then, after years of working in the punishing heat of the henequen fields, the Koreans are caught in the midst of a Mexican revolution. A tale of star-crossed love, political turmoil, and the dangers of seeking freedom in a new world, Black Flower is an epic story based on a little-known moment in history.

지금 세대를 대표하는 소설가 김영하의 『검은 꽃』. 멕시코의 에네켄 농장으로 팔려가 조선 최초의 멕시코 이민자 1033명 중 11명의 이야기를 그려낸 장편소설이다. 그들이 태평양을 건너 이국에서 죽음을 맞이하기까지를 무거우면서도 경쾌하고, 광활하면서도 안정감 있는 문체로 따라간다. 어쩔 수 없이 무너진 모국에서 버려지고 일탈한 그들의 씁쓸한 평생을 우리 기억 속에 새겨놓으면서, 우리 민족이 직ㆍ간접적으로 거쳐온 삶에 대한 알레고리의 의미를 탐구하고 있다.
