  • About the Book
  • This selection from Kim Jong-Gil’s work contains just over 50 poems, written throughout his career and chosen by himself. The poems are those by which he wishes to be remembered. The topics are personal, often the result of a journey back to a place familiar in childhood, or of a moment of insight. Occasionally the poems evoke visits to places far from Korea. The collection exemplifies the simple human dignity to which Korean writers attach such great importance.
