BOOK DESCRIPTION

This poetry anthology contains ninety poems by three prominent Korean ecopoets who write about the endangered environment and deplore its impact on nature and mankind. Seungho Choi’s poetry is filled with explicit descriptions and pessimism that condemn the capitalist society and man’s selfish desires, which, he believes, can ultimately ruin the ecosystem and mankind. Chiha Kim’s somewhat-cynical poetry encourages the fulfillment of each creature’s life through harmonious living among all living things. Hyonjong Chong’s poetry, with the earth goddess Gaia in mind, writes about the bliss that could be found in living amicably with the ecosystem.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Seungho Choi has penned at least ten books of poetry and has received many awards, including the Sooyoung Kim Literary Award, the Isan Literary Award, and the Daesan Literary Award. Chiha Kim, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, has published many poetry anthologies including Heart’s Agony. Hyonjong Chong, a former reporter, is the recipient of the Korean Literature Writer Prize for his poetry.


ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR

Won-Chung Kim is a professor of English literature at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea. He has co-translated the works of Chiha Kim and Seungho Choi (Flowers in the Toilet Bowl, Homa & Sekey Books, 2004).
