Unlock the more straightforward side of The Vegetarian with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Vegetarian by Han Kang, which traces the dramatic consequences of Yeong-hye?s decision to stop eating meat. Her husband and most of her family react with incomprehension and even violence, while her brother-in-law, a struggling video artist, finds himself increasingly drawn to her because of her unconventional behaviour and flower-shaped birth mark. The novella is a powerful and disturbing examination of desire, sanity and the stifling pressures imposed by social conformism. The Vegetarian was among the first of Han Kang?s works to be translated into English, and won the Man Booker International Prize in 2016.
