Korean poetry is not yet widely known or appreciated in the West, compared to Chinese or Japanese, but Ko Un is a great example of modern Korean poetry, indeed known by many as the nation’s unofficial poet laureate. One factor making translating his work doubly difficult is his facility at an amazingly wide range of genres and styles. As the introduction states, to follow the major periods of his work is to see much of modern Korean culture and history encapsulated, a history wherein he’s not only been eye-witness but also an activist.

Ko Un has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize for Literature and is recognized as one of the most important of living poets of our times. This volume selects work from his entire career to date. ( )
