Abstract

South Korea, I am happy to report, has made substantial progress over the past seven or eight years in securing human rights and consolidating civic freedom. And I am proud to add that writers committed to the establishment of democratic national culture played a significant role in the process, sometimes through direct protest action in the streets, but more broadly through literary words that often brought upon the authors and/or publishers government reprisals in the form of arrests, tortures, imprisonments and confiscations. The main organization for these activist writers, called the Council of Writers for the Practice of Freedom when first launched in 1974, was expanded and reorganized in 1987 as the Association of Writers for National Literature.
