Based on a diary detailing a 900-mile journey by sedan chair through southern Korea in the 1880s-written by one of the few Westerners at the time who could speak Korean-Inside the Hermit Kingdom is an account like no other. It gives readers a rare glimpse of the kingdom of Choson in its pristine condition, before the intrusion of the outside world.
Samuel J. Hawley is assistant professor of practical English at Yonsei University.
