Poetry. Asian Studies. Translation. Translated from the Korean by Suh Ji-moon and James A. Perkins. Twenty-one poets, male and female, North Korean and South Korean, well-known and long forgotten, appear in this collection, the first of its kind in English. The poems reflect the reality of living in a country torn in half by political ideologies. An introduction by translator Suh Ji-moon places the poems and the poets within a historical context that describes the suffering and despair of pitting brother against brother.
