About the Author:

KYU-BO YI (1168-1241), the greatest of the classical Korean poets, was born into a very turbulent period of history, when the Koryo kingdom was threatened from the north by barbarians and from within by the ongoing struggle for supremacy among the various factions. His poems, confessional and transcendent, describe moments of personal illumination in the course of everyday life. KEVIN O'ROURKE is Professor of English at Kyunghee University. His translations include Ten Korean Short Stories; Our Twisted Hero; The Shijo Tradition; and Tilting the Jar, Spilling the Moon, which was the Poetry Society translation selection for 1993.

Review:

"[Kevin O'Rourke] is successful in approximating the poet's breaths with sentences that would otherwise have read as prose." --Korean Quarterly
