The poems in this collection are located between a lost world and todays modernity, poised between celebration and lamentation, as icons of loss and yearning. The reader is carried into unfamiliar spaces of scenery and also of language, as the translators retain echoes of the Korean originals, intent on transmitting each poets vision of an unfamiliar other place to readers who are eager to be transported.

- Brother Anthony, literary translator and professor emeritus of Sokang University
