Description

Volume 4 of the Songs of Thorns and Flowers: Bilingual Performance and Discourse on Modern Korean Poetry Series, entitled Sunlight In A Distant Place,  by Hong Yunsook, translated by Brother Anthony of Taizé and edited by Chan E. Park, was published by NEALRC in late 2013.

This volume features 39 translated poems of the 2012 Ku Sang Poet Laureate Hong Yunsook. It is a pedagogical approach to modern Korean poetry for college-level Korean language and literature education outside Korea. To make visible the rhetorical and semantic transfer from Korean to English, the original and the translated poems are laid side by side. Historical explanations and requisite annotations on language use are provided where appropriate or needed. The included companion CD features video interviews with the Poet and audio recitation.
