About this title


When the King's governor, after falling into rebel hands and changing sides, is recaptured by royal troops and executed, his sons and grandsons are also condemned to death. They survive by subterfuge, but they have lost their place in society. The Poet tells the story of Kim, the youngest grandson, consigned to a life of vagrancy and genteel begging as a wandering poet. In his efforts to recover the family's fortunes, he commits a second betrayal, this time against his own house. This is a haunting and luminous tale whose main themes are the search for self-respect and self-identity in an unjust society.

Yi Mun-yol, born in South Korea in 1948, is Korea's most influential living writer and the author of the novel Our Twisted Hero. While his work is still banned in North Korea, in South Korea the sales of his books have risen above six million copies.
