Description of The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyong by JaHyun Kim Haboush PDF

“The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyong: The Autobiographical Writings of a Crown Princess of Eighteenth-Century Korea” is a book that tells the truth. JaHyun Kim Haboush is the author of this book. This is an excellent book both historical and a personal account of events critical in Lady Hyegyong life and in Korean history. If we are to take the view that Lady Hyegyong espouses in her memoirs, and they seem too sincere to doubt, then the king seems to suffer from the same symptoms that characterize Prince Sado’s mental illness. The king suffered from the same obsessive-compulsive personality as did his son perhaps only to a different degree. He didn’t want to hear the words “death” or “return” and also changed clothes before entering certain buildings just like Sado obsessed over his clothes and was afraid of thunder. The only difference was that as king he had the power to kill. The prince seems to innately understand this crucial difference early on and that is why Lady Hyegyong considers his references to his own death premonitions.

Instead, they were the intelligent realizations of his precarious relationship with a father that would gladly trade a son’s life for his own. The constant distaste for a son who would eventually succeed him seems to represent an unnatural wish for his son’s death. Almost a trade for immortality in the sick king’s mind. These memoirs record a powerful and distorted father and son relationship that evokes images of familial entrapment in something so mundane as a rice chest. It is a chord that continues to resonate through the ages.
