A Widow Writes to Her Dead Husband Eung-Tae Lee [Letter]

July 7, 2016
On tonight's podcast, we'll be looking at a letter written in 1586 by an unnamed and pregnant widow to her dead husband Eung-Tae Lee. 

This letter was discovered in 1996 in a tomb in Andong City, South Korea. Eung-Tae Lee, who was a member of the ancient Goseong Yi clan, was found with it along with a pair of sandals -- apparently woven from hemp bark and his wife's own hair.

This is a moving and deeply affecting letter, and I hope I've done it justice.

And I hope you enjoy.
