3. Book Intro

 

In 1984, a collection of poetry written by an anonymous poet at the age of 27 rocked the nation. The immortal poetry collection has been sold about one million copies and emerged itself in Korean literature despite the censorship of the military regime. Park Nohae’s songs for the thousands of workers who had been oppressed with no rights moved their souls. “For those who lived in the 1980s, Park Nohae was a historical figure, a symbol, and a legend. I doubt we'll be able to see a person like him again, an important figure in both Korean society and in the history of literature.” (Taken from a commentary by literary critic Do Jeongil)
The Dawn of Labor is still respected and loved by readers even though 34 years have passed since its publication, and the book has shown the power of poetry for those who are living in an unjust society with unstable souls. The strength of Park’s poems will empower his readers.

3. Book Intro

 

Married Life: The Poetry of Life is a collection of poems about joy and sorrow written by old ladies from Gokseong, South Jeolla Province. The title of the book contains two meanings: the harsh and sorrowful life of a married woman (시집살이, "sijibsali" in Korean) and the life as a poet who just learned how to read and write Korean (詩집살이, "sijibsali" in Korean). The nine poets from Gokseong draw out the emotions of readers through 124 poems that sing honest, sometimes sorrowful stories of life. Poet Lee Yeonggwang has expressed his high regards for the collection, claiming that these poems are outstanding not just because they are written by old ladies new to Korean writing but also because they are "astonishing and touching." After noticing the old ladies who helped organize books at the library cannot read Korean, Director Kim Seonja, who works as a traveling librarian for Gokseong and director of the "Small Roadside Library," proposed that she teaches the ladies how to read and write. Soon, the old ladies, who learned Korean writing through drawings and children's poems, began to receive awards from various local culture festivals. Realizing their potential, Director Kim decided to put together a collection of poems written by the old ladies. After much trouble, they were published with the help from the editor at BookGoodCome. The honest poems from the old ladies touched many people's hearts, eventually leading to the production of the documentary Granny Poets featuring the lives of the elderly poets.

3. Book Intro

 

The Flow of Words series consists of 10 volumes that build on each other through Korean wordplay. When one person offers two words, the next person has to build upon the first two words and present an entirely new third word. Readers anticipate the literary effect that results when two authors share the same word. This effect exists as an unwritten narrative between the books, remaining solely in the imaginations of the readers who also participate in this wordplay.

3. Book Intro

 

A poem maintaining an accurate temperature,
Recovers the joy of poetry reading

Maintaining emotional balance is a major characteristic of Jo Haeju's poems. Jo keeps a certain distance from the dramas scattered throughout people's daily lives. As such, her tone of voice may sound emotionless, but Jo Haeju seems well-aware that this kind of emotionless position hurts neither herself nor her subject.
By using only the words necessary, the author comfortably guides readers towards different thoughts. From this perspective, Let's Talk About Something Else, the title of this collection, perfectly represents the characteristics of the poems within. Words and emotions that maintain their exact temperature will comfort readers by filling the void which is believed to be lacking in modern poems.

Strange aspects
Observed in our daily lives

Jo's emotions are strong rather than unstable, and the sentences following such emotions are simple. But the natural aspects that arise from such are not about everyday life. Common scenes one might easily ignore take center stage when they go through the eyes and words of Jo. This movement into center stage is particularly noteworthy as it mostly takes place through the "words" of Jo.
Jo's words which sometime go weird transform the ordinary things in daily life into something strange. Paradoxically, such strangeness discovered in daily lifein turn exposes the strangeness of practices for our daily lives.
However, this exposure should not be taken as a revelation. As poet Kim Eon said, "they drive us to hold different thoughts comfortably." Jo's poems are neither comforting nor discomforting. They offer the reader an experience of discovering the strange aspects of things we take for granted in our daily lives, through a wide yet bold voice and warm emotions.

3. Book Intro

 

This is the second book of poems by Park Jun, who gained the love of Korean readers with a single book of poems and a single book of essays. In the words of the poet, "We may see the rainy season together." There is no word of desire, like "want," nor of the past, such as "saw." Instead the poet indicates the future - "may see" - to depict a time when they may be together.
The speaker of this collection of poems is someone who is waiting. "Questions during the day" can only be answered "when the night comes." But the speaker is waiting for things of the past not things in the future. The words of greetings that you exchanged in the past, the words that you use every day so you might forget easily, or the words that reaches me today -- all of which are, in fact, from memories.
If the past reaches the present, it means that our current moment is connected to the future. Let us take a look at the poem Rainy Season - A Letter Sent from Taebaek. The speaker writes two letters from Taebaek. The first letter talks about the "miners who died in the mine," but the writer soon "crumples the paper." The second letter begins anew with the phrase, "We may see the rainy season together." While the first letter described the incident that already happened, the second letter describes what can happen in the future. While this future has not come yet, if they spend the present faithfully, they will be able to reach it, the time when they can spend the rainy season together.
So what exactly is the speaker waiting for? As said earlier, the words that you exchanged in the past reach you in the present. What the speaker has been waiting for may be the person with whom those words were shared. As described on page 84, despite saying goodbye, this person is someone the speaker wants to care for, who will cause the speaker to immediately "stop what he/she's doing now" at even a small gesture of "your" opening "the window." The feeling of waiting for the rainy season while remembering the words shared with the person. This collection of poems is like a letter filled with such emotions.

3. Book Intro

 

Frida Kahlo's love and art are "a much darker red than blood."
Frida Kahlo's immortal paintings and the poet's variation
A beautiful conversation between two artists
The Night Is Long and Painful is the fourth book in the essay series of poems immersed in print that feature poems and drawings. This book is a record of poet Park Yeonjun's poetic thinking on the art and love of Frida Kahlo, the Mexican painter who lived an "endlessly tumbling life" full of pain and wounds, which led her to create works "a much darker red than blood."
The poet walks into Frida's poetic paintings and reads the artist's state of mind, which has yet to be transformed into the paintings, and explores the true nature of Kahlo's love for Diego Rivera by ruminating on Kahlo’s language from her diary and letters. The poet, in an infinitely pungent and warm style, tells readers about the "love" that she needed to survive her pain, which had destroyed her thousands of times, and her works that eventually survived the destruction. The poet hovers between the inside of Frida's works and the reality to which she belongs and confesses her private feelings that are trivial but candid, and also absurd but humorous.
The writer Jeong Yeo Wul says, "If Frida Kahlo had read this book, she would have been greatly pleased. It would be like her meeting a genuine soulmate all the way from Korea, a country she can get to from her mother country of Mexico by flying halfway around the globe, transcending the gap of time and space, through this book."

In the book which is published 5 years after her debut, she sings "others' pain and sorrow" with a language like bare skin.She painstakingly weave "the feeling of becoming weak to pain and sorrow" (Kim Haeng Sook, from recommendation remark) into the beautiful poems "in a low yet sound voice." (Kim Young Hee, from commentary).
It is neither bridle nor prison // nor salvation. // in the eyes of the carpenter's eyes // when checking wood // like the indescribable weather. // sitting down // saying // tulips, tulips, // it seems to be said all. // sharp and pointy // didn't know how to use comfortably // as if we didn't know how to live comfortably. // (…) // Does it really start with the heart? // When I see a bee flying in the middle of winter. // is it a transparent wing? // If so, // It is terrible // that all these are a matter of the heart (From The Poem Collection)

3. Book Intro

 

The Volume 2, Modern Literature Pin series is a poetry collection of 6 poets, Kim Haengsook, Oh Eun, Lim Seung-yu, Lee Won, Kang Sungeun, and Kim Kitaek. The book proposes a reader to read poems in a different way, in a hope that the book serves as a pin that connecting literature and readers. While the Volume 1 focused on exploring the current address and direction of Korean poetry, this Volume 2 seeks to reveal the uniqueness of each of 6 writers.
"By making us smaller and giving more space to others," (commentary by poet Sung Donghyuk) twenty poems included in Everything Else by Lim Seung-yu allow us to enjoy her profound and unique poetic world, who won the Kim Joonsung Literary Award and the Hyundae Literary Award in succession after her poetry debut in 2011 with I Gave Birth to a Baby because I Thought I Am Not Enough by Myself.
Six poets in Volume 2, Modern Literature Pin series also wrote essays with the theme of "bodies" for the collection.
Lim Seung-yu's essay Only Bones Remain adopts an impressive episode of cartoon characters to delve into the human relationship as if by "deboning." It is an essay where the aesthetic of the poet, who approaches things meticulously, really stands out.

3. Book Intro

 

“You have lived ninety years / The clock says / I reply, I know // The clock asks, / What is your wish? / I reply, / An ego born of my heart / And effort to do my best / But a moment passes / And I change my reply / Love, wealth / And longevity // Bursting into laughter, the clock says: / From the most worldly of men / I expected no less... / Without rest, the clock / goes and waits” - “Clock” by Kim Nam Jo
Youlhwadang is proud to present the 18th poetry anthology by the poet Kim Nam Jo, who celebrates his 90th birthday this year. This anthology includes “Clock,” winner of the Jeong Jiyong Literature Prize, and 63 new compositions.
Kim’s first anthology Life was published in 1953, kicking off a 64-year career as a poet. As the oldest member of the world of Korean poetry, Kim confesses, “For the past decade, I’d wanted to lay down my pen and spend my time reading poetry and books by other people. But every time I saw something or thought about something, the poetry would overflow inside me, and the words wouldn’t let me go until I’d put them to paper.” In the preface to this anthology, Kim writes, “Even now, in the twilight of my years, the fact that I still see, feel, learn, and resonate with the world remains the same.” In spite of the unspoken rigors of the artistic process, it is clear that poetry is Kim’s calling in life.
In the preface, Kim also remarks, “The significance of life, the awe of responding to that revelation, and the slow but reverent growth of our outlook on it—all these things are a curious blessing, a source of gratitude, and the wellspring of our most fervent desires. These notions occupied my mind all throughout the writing process.” He adds, “I would like to publish another anthology after this one.” Kim’s powerful validation of a life filled with love and hope rings loud and clear in this anthology.
