Presents an English translation of selected poems by one of the most important and unusual modern poets of South Korea. Pak Chaesam's work is characterized by portraits of place, nature, childhood, and human relationships, and by indirection, nostalgia, and reflectiveness. He writes with a spareness of presentation, but a cornucopia of imagery.
