Was so excited when I got my copy There are so many details in the book and I felt I was lost because I couldn t memorize all the names but as everyone else said the last chapter was great and so sad SPOILER Still can t see any reason why his mom told on him and why his father chose this cruel ending to punish him As I see in dramas royal family drink poison but here Prince Sado faced a worse ending This book is excellent historical and women classic novel detailing the tumultuous family life the palace during the 18th century in Korea We read the psychological delimma of several characters taking part of one of the most tragic event in the royal lives divided between family piety and royal duties It is extremely rare to read acurrate and real stories about royal family lives from a person who actualy lived with them Take the storyline of the Chinese movie The forbidden city make it personnal dramatic and korean and you get this novel This is the first book I read from a Korean author and want to read novels from Korea When Prince Sado was born in 1725 the long awaited sole heir to the Korean throne no one was happier than his father King Yeongjo 27 years later on a hot summer day the King forced his only son into a rice chest in the middle of a courtyard and left him there without food or water ntil he died 8 days later The memoirs of Prince Sado s wife the Crown Princess Lady Hyegyong explain why Made p of 4 memoirs each directed at a different group of people and written
in 1795 18011795 1801 and 1805 long after the prince s death Lady Hyegyong s often harrowing story of her husband s descent into madness many historians today believe he had schizophrenia is very tragic and touching The memoirs of 1795 and 1805 are the best in my opinion 1801 and 1802 deal a lot with Lady Hyegyong s grievances and the political intrigues of Korean court life which sometimes are confusing and repetitive but definitely worth reading 1795 details how she became the crown princess and is a fascinating look at the life of an pper class young woman in historic Korea The 1805 memoir directed at her grandson the current king at the time is gripping because through the first 3 memoirs she only makes allusions to the incident that took her husband s life In the final memoir the floodgates open and she gives a detailed account of the terror she lived in during those final years with her husband It s also a very personal look at the horror of living with a husband with severe mental illness in intensely patriarchal society a society which left her no recourse but to endure years of mental and physical abuse years in which her husband indiscriminately raped andor murdered people often within her presence Also sad is the way in which Lady Hyegyong product of a deeply Confucian society struggles to defend both her husband and the king as she was raised constantly blaming herself and her own lack of virtue for the state of their relationship which was never good and only deteriorated as the prince sank further into madnessCrown Prince Sado Lady Hyegyong was married to the infamous Prince Sado a probable paranoid schizophrenic who was eventually sentenced to death by his parents.

Ains The Autobiographical Writings of a Crown Princess of Eighteenth Century Korea Lady Hyegy ng was married into the royal family she married Sado the Crown Prince when they were both nine years old Sado never became king he was executed in 1762 at the age of 27 but their son inherited the throne as King Ch ngjo Remarkably Hyegy ng outlived him as well and three of these four memoirs were written after 1800 during the reign of her grandson King SunjoSo she had a long and eventful life and it makes for fascinating reading It s sometimes a little difficult keeping track of who s who there s a large cast of characters the court intrigues are confusing and the family relationships are complicated by the fact that the kings and princes have children by multiple women some wives some consorts And because I m nused to Korean names they all sound a bit the same to me But it has a list of characters and some family trees which helpedThe other complication is that these are four separate memoirs which overlap with each other So the first The Memoir of 1795 is closest to the modern idea of a memoir starting
With Her Childhood And Coveringher childhood and covering of her life but it carefully avoids any details about the single most important event the execution of Prince Sado The execution of the crown Prince by his father is so politically charged that she only alludes to it in the vaguest terms Then the memoirs of 1801 and 1802 are directly political public advocacy aimed at defending the reputation of her father and brothers who had fallen out favour after the death of Ch ngjo And in the Memoir of 1805 she finally returns to the story of Sado explaining that 40 years of silence has allowed false versions of events to take hold and she believes it is important to tell what really happenedAnd the story of Prince Sado is extraordinary I don t want to give all the details I m sure I enjoyed this book because I was surprised and shocked by it But the central fact of his execution is this he was suffering from some kind of mental illness and it progressed to the point that he was thought to be a credible threat to the life of the king But because he was royal custom forbade any method of execution that would disfigure the body and poison would have implied he was a criminal so he was shut into a rice chest and left to starve to deathAs you might imagine this event traumatised the entire royal family in various ways hence it being taboo to talk about it for four decades after it happenedBut although it was an extreme example it also gives a hint of the brutality of court life There are an awful lot of people who get banished to remote islands or tortured or executed sually saying something which is perceived to be disloyal That disloyalty at least at this cultural often seems to be based on terrifyingly slight nuances of speechSo I found it fascinating as a portrayal of a time and place and the whole story is positively Shakespearean But it is also much readable than you might expect If you skipped the two middle memoirs it would be a positive page turner not that they aren t interesting but they are harder work The Memoirs of Lady Hyegy ng is my book from South Korea for the.
