What's the value of the soul for you?

The Fisherman and his Soul is a picture book created by Pei-Hsin Cho, adapted from Oscar Wilde's tale of the same name. 

 

​It's a story about the connections between love, body, and soul; 

and about emotions - that there's a tightly interwoven relation between conflicted emotions such as love and pain, joy and bitterness. 

For the love of a mermaid, a young fisherman wishes to send his soul away and he did.  The Soul wandered around the world alone for years. Yet his soul returned to the shore every year, called for the Fisherman and tempted him with good and bad to reunite with him.​

 


​你會如何衡量愛、靈魂與肉體間的關係呢?

 

年輕的漁夫愛上了人魚並為了與愛人生活在一起而捨棄了靈魂。

靈魂因而隻身遊蕩了世界數年,卻年年回到岸邊呼喚著漁夫,

想方設法地想與漁夫重新團聚。
