About Daesan Foundation
The name of the foundation derived from the pen name of the founder of Kyobo Life Insurance Co. Ltd, Yong-Ho Shin. Also the foundation was established with the contribution of the company. It supports cultural activities and academic studies. It adjudges the “Daesan Literature award”, supports translation of Korean and foreign literature and assists other cultural activities.
This book illustrates the life of a writer, Tristram Shandy. Sterne unravels the story of the strange family and friends of Shandy in a way that ignores any plot, cause and effect, or conclusion. Romantist poets deemed this work ― which provided new understanding on human nature with a revolutionary style ― to be a ‘holy book.’
Tamburlaine the Great | The Jew of Malta | Doctor Faustus, written by Christopher Marlowe , 2002
The best plays of Christopher Marlowe, the writer who led Renaissance Britain with Shakespeare. These masterpieces dramatically show the transition of thoughts and values in Renaissance ― the age which was also the cultural peak ― of all Western Europe, not just Britain.
Classics full of satire, humor, romance and wit!
“Pilgrims to the West” is not a simple nursery rhyme or a fantasy novel. This fantastic story is the result of Chinese romanticism literature accumulated for one thousand years.
