The Fisherman and his Soul
El Pescador y su Alma (The Fisherman and his Soul), Ediciones SM, Spain, 2022
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.
