 Dear Colleagues,

I write to announce the publication of *The Routledge Companion to Korean
Literature* (Routledge, March 2022). I hope this edited volume, consisting
of 35 chapters written by leading scholars in the field and the list of
English translations of Korean literature, will be helpful for teaching as
well as researching Korean literature.

*The Routledge Companion to Korean Literature* consists of 35 chapters
written by leaders in the field, who explore significant topics and who
have pioneered innovative approaches. The collection highlights the most
dynamic current scholarship on Korean literature, presenting rigorous
literary analysis, interdisciplinary methodologies, and transregional
thinking so as to provide a valuable and inspiring resource for researchers
and students alike. This *Companion* has particular significance as the
most extensive collection to date of English-language articles on Korean
literature; it both offers a thorough intellectual engagement with current
scholarship and addresses a broad range of topics and time periods, from
premodern to contemporary. It will contribute to an understanding of
literature as part of a broad sociocultural process that aims to put the
field into conversation with other fields of study in the humanities and
social sciences.

While presenting rigorous and innovative academic research that will be
useful to graduate students and researchers, the chapters in the collection
are written to be accessible to the average upper-level undergraduate
student and include only minimal use of academic jargon. In an effort to
provide substantially helpful material for researching, teaching, and
learning Korean literature, this *Companion* includes as an appendix an
extensive list of English translations of Korean literature.
