BOOK DESCRIPTION

For the Korean farmers of the second half of the twentieth century, Korea’s shift from a farming to an industrial society imposed hardship on their lives. Shin Kyungrim, who understood their pain and suffering, recorded their feelings in A Love Song for the Earnest, a collection of over sixty poems that not only mirrors the lives of Korea’s impoverished but also hopes for a brighter future to everyone in every social class. Within Shin’s extraordinary sense of sympathy lies an innate humor and will to live, which makes his poems warm and positive.
