Demonstrates how to enter into imaginative dialogue with a text, using as an example a novel by the 17th-century Korean court official Kim Manjung. By applying to fiction personal queries about the nature of philosophical discourse and the forms it takes, Bantly (Buddhist studies, Georgetown U.) allows the text to answer questions the author never addressed. Also shows the use of the imagination in reconstructing the society and religious context in which the text was written. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
