About the book:

This selection of plays offers an overview of Lee Gun-sam抯 attempts to portray the socially-underprivileged people抯 慼eroic struggle to assert their human dignity in a society swarming with time-serving snobs and hypocrites. Lee Gun-sam抯 heartstring was always attached to those who remain honest to themselves and fight for their moral principles. His favorite characters, without exception, are those who adhere to the values they cherish, living in a world that asks for compromise and self-suppression for survival. The protagonists in his plays are neither 憈ragic nor 慶omic: they traverse the borderline between the two realms, stereotyped by dramatic convention. Each of them looms as an everyman-figure: he or she can be any of us. As the main character in The Last Performance of an Old Actor bids farewell to his audience, we realize that his real grand 憄erformance was not on the man-made stage that he has lived for, but on the stage of life, as all of us must.

About the playwright:

Lee Gun-sam was born in 1929 at Pyong-yang, now in North Korea. His career as a playwright started as early as 1958, when the plays he wrote in English while doing graduate studies in North Carolina were put on the stage there. He taught at Dong-guk University, Joong-ang University, and Sogang University, while actively engaged in playwriting, and wrote almost sixty plays in Korean before his demise in 2003. Lee Gun-sam opened a new horizon for Korean dramatists by introducing diverse dramaturgy to the Korean stage.

About the translator:

Sidney Soo-young Lee was a prize-winner three times (1999, 2000, and 2001) in the Modern Korean Literature English Translation Awards given by The Korea Times. His English translation of Lee Gun-sam抯 play, A Grand Retreat, was chosen in the 2002 Daesan Foundation抯 translation contest to be published abroad under its auspices, along with his English translation of four other plays by the same playwright. He teaches English in Korea.

This is the first anthology of the poetry of Yu Chi-whan, the foremost poet of twentieth-century Korea, in English translation. Translated by an admirer of Yu Chi-whan as man and poet, the poems selected for inclusion in this volume provide an overview of his poetic world. Appearing in the chronological order of composition, they range from sheer lyricism to stern diatribe of social injustices and human follies, and finally to calm acceptance and embracement of the cosmic providence. No rhetorical flourish, or intentional display of poetic conceits, is to be found in his lines, only the rotundity of the poet抯 voice overflowing with ardor to articulate his messages, which the poet finds hard to put in the confinement of the human tongue. The translator wished to retain the messages and the verbal sinew of the poet抯 lines untarnished in the process of translation.

Sung-Il Lee has won a number of awards for his English translations of Korean poetry. His books of Korean poetry in English translations include The Wind and the Waves: Four Modern Korean Poets (Asian Humanities Press, 1989), The Moonlit Pond: Korean Classical Poems in Chinese (Copper Canyon Press, 1998), and The Brush and the Sword: Kasa, Korean Classical Poems in Prose (Cross-Cultural Communications, 2009). His most recent book, Beowulf and Four Related Old English Poems: A Verse Translation with Explanatory Notes (The Edwin Mellen Press, 2010), has been acclaimed as 慳 masterful version as close to an ideal translation as we can get (Gregory Rabassa). He is now a Professor Emeritus at Yonsei University, Seoul.

Poems in this volume reflect the poet抯 life in a myriad of ways like the light cast through a prism. The fifty-three poems collected in the book fall into two groups: those that reveal what the poet feels and thinks while living her daily life, and those that deal with what she, as an immigrant, has to go through while living in a foreign country away from her homeland. As witnessed in some poems, Kim is sometimes very self-conscious of her life that should be led as an immigrant in a foreign country, which makes her poetic world unique and conspicuous among her contemporary Korean or Korean American poets who are writing poetry in the Korean language. Without a doubt, the delicate poetic sensitivity characteristic of Moon Hee Kim抯 poetry will make the Korean or Korean American literary heritage much more bountiful and attractive.

Born in 1950 in Korea, Moon Hee Kim earned a B.A. degree in French Literature at Sook Myung Women抯 University in Korea. After coming to the United States, she obtained an M.A. degree and two Ph.D. degrees, all in the fields of education.

Kim has published five books of poetry in Korean: Leaves of Grass, Awakening (1988), Autumn River (1990), Morning Grass (1992), The Being, Deep Mind (1998), and Lighting Candles for You (2007). Autumn River has also been translated into English. Her poetry has also been published in Los Angeles Times, The Korea Daily, The Korea Times, among other newspapers, magazines and periodicals. Kim was invited as one of the representative Korean-American poets to read poetry on April 11, 1994 at the Library of Congress.

About The Crane in the Clouds:

This anthology presents well over a hundred Korean classical poems known as shijo, in English translation. Shijo, a form of poetic composition still very much alive, has a tradition spanning a thousand years. One of the first historical anthologies of shijo in English, this book offers an overview of that uniquely Korean poetic legacy. Composed in the vernacular and written down in hangǔl, the Korean phonograms, shijo asserts its national identity, which hanshi, composed in the classical Chinese ideograms, ostensibly may not.

Sung-Il Lee抯 English rendition of shijo captures the rhythmic flow of the original lines in Korean, while remaining true to the sound quality and the poetic message contained therein. Although the book is meant for the general readers, students of Korean language and literature will find it helpful, as it provides parallel texts梩he Korean original and its English rendition.

The Dream of Things brings together about 80 poems by Hyonjong Chong that best illustrate his unusual poetic imagination and polished skill. In these poems, Chong demonstrates his persistent pursuit of the relationship between poet and object. It is through thoughtful meditation about language and meticulous precision in word choice that he relates this relationship.

Chong often extends his metaphors through unique word play and the use of puns, which serves to dislocate readers from common perceptions and prejudices. He enjoys poetic experimentation in order to push conventional boundaries, which allows him to convey his profound meditation on the relationship between 搈an and man and 搈an and things.

Two stories by a leading Korean thinker explore the ambiguities of a rapidly changing culture. In The General's Beard, a journalist tries to solve the mystery of a young photographer's death. He explores hints from the dead man's journal and interviews his former girlfriend but remains far from an explanation. In Phantom Legs, a young girl studying French literature meets a student wounded during demonstrations and begins an ambiguous relationship with him. An ironic commentary is provided by extracts from Stendhal's romantic story Vanina Vanini, in which a countess saves the life of a rebel outlaw, with whom she falls in love.

Translucency puts together about fifty poems by Chankyung Sung that showcase his dexterous command of metaphor and subtle sensibility toward language. In these poems, Sung portrays a complex world of man抯 spirit with refined language, opening a new horizon of intellectual poetry, or 搈etaphysical lyrics, in Korea.

It is not the principle of constructing experience, but the positive intellectual process of perceiving new experiences that governs Sung抯 poetic world. Sung extracts the best of the East and West and combines them in his poetry. The mystery of life is the leitmotif of his poetry; he grasps the structure of soul with intuition and portrays it in a metaphor refined in his furnace-like imagination which melts down heterogeneous things.

Chankyung Sung was born in Yesan in 1930 and studied English literature at college. He began to publish his poems in 1950s and has written eight books of poetry including Fugue for a Burning at the Stake (1966), Translucency (1984), Silent Drama (1995), and Distance Makes Universe a Toy (2006). Sung has received Korean Association of Poets Award, Weoltan Literary Award, and Seoul City Literary Award. He is a member of the National Academy of Arts.

Won-Chung Kim is Professor of English Literature at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea, where he teaches contemporary American poetry, ecological literature, and translation. He earned his Ph.D. in English at the University of Iowa in 1993. He has translated eight books of Korean poetry including Chiha Kim抯 Heart抯 Agon, Choi Seungho抯 Flowers in the Toilet Bowl, Ji-woo Hwang抯 Even Birds Leave the World and Cracking the Shell: Three Korean Ecopoets. He also translated T. Seton抯 The Gospel of the Redman, and Heinrich抯 In a Patch of Fireweed, John Mir抯 My First Summer in the Sierra into Korean.

Christopher Merrill has published four collections of poetry, including Watch Fire, for which he received the Peter I. B. Lavan Younger Poets Award from the Academy of American Poets; several edited volumes and works in translation; and four books of nonfiction, The Grass of Another Country: A Journey Through the World of Soccer, The Old Bridge: The Third Balkan War and the Age of the Refugee, Only the Nails Remain: Scenes from the Balkan Wars, and Things of the Hidden God: Journey to the Holy Mountain. He directs the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa.
