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. Learn More…
