Strong Winds at Mishi Pass (Korean Voices) (Paperback)
The first widely available translation in English of one of South Korea's most important contemporary poets.
Tong-Gyu Hwang is recognized as one of the most important poets in contemporary South Korea. This volume draws work from three of his recent books and includes a number of his Wind Burial poems that haven't appeared in English previously. "Hwang uniquely combines bold contemporary images and traditional Oriental spareness to reveal the integrity of a world where nature and human beings must rely on each other in the face of all that would strip away meaning and dignity."--Grace Loving Gibson.
