Abstract

“The Physiological Challenges of Yeong-hye in Han Kang’s The Vegetarian” discusses on how a protagonist’s sudden decision to stop eating meat altered her own-self physically. It was the recurring dream that occurred to Yeong-hye continuously and strenuously, that made her avoid eating meat and food altogether. Throughout the novel, she spoke nothing but her act of defiance spoke louder than anything else. Yeong-hye had to battle her wars physiologically in The Vegetarian against vegetarianism, eroticism, sexual harassment, familial conflicts, violence both internally and outwardly, misinterpretations, schizophrenia, social, cultural and the traditional norms in order to conquer in becoming a full-fledged plant. The protagonist fought the battles strenuously, with determination and consistency. She might have failed, but not her resolution. It was rather a searing, scary, bizarre, terrific and an upsetting novel, in which the loss of appetite of the protagonist to eat food increases the appetite of the readers to ponder upon the lives’ choices on a phenomenal level.
