Abstract

Abstract:

The trickster is a liminal figure who subverts and undermines existing power structures. But what happens when the trickster is appropriated by a totalitarian regime? Four North Korean collections of tales featuring Kim Sŏndal, a famous trickster from feudal Korea, show how he can be repurposed as a means of ideological education and institutional control.
