This selection of Park Hi-jinís poems includes about ninety of his poems of diverse lengths from among some two thousand poems he has published so far. Though they may not represent a fair cross section of his poetic works in content and expression, they do convey some of his more important poetic utterances.
Parkís subject matter subsumes the worlds of Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Pungryudo. His persistent pursuit of the Korean cultural identity stands as unmistakable signposts throughout his poetic career. Many of his poems pay tribute to the mysterious harmony among heaven, earth, and humanity. All in all, his work as a whole presents memorable vignettes and vistas of Korean history, culture and traditions. Learn More...
