About the Book

 

The poems in this collection are located between a lost world and today’s modernity, poised between celebration and lamentation, as icons of loss and yearning. The reader is carried into unfamiliar spaces of scenery and also of language, as the translators retain echoes of the Korean originals, intent on transmitting each poet’s vision of an unfamiliar other place to readers who are eager to be transported.
