Ko Un has long been a living legend in Korea, both as a poet and as a person. When a writer has published as much as Ko Un has in the course of more than fifty years of writing, it is hard to know where to begin, what to translate. For this collection, his translators have selected poems from the five collections published since 2002. Nothing shows more clearly his stature as a writer than the variety of themes and emotions found in his most recent work; as he approaches his eightieth year, with his energy and originality unabated. ""Un's poems take the ordinary world and peel the skin off, so that a gentle meditation on the passage of hours becomes something both beautiful and terrible as light shining through blood.""-The Quarterly Conversation March 4, 2013
