Item description for Abiding Places: Korea South & North by Un Ko, Sunny Jung & Hillel Schwartz...

In Abiding Places, Korean poet Ko Un transfigured his homeland in lovely, observant, and penetrating poems uniting ancient and modern, secular and spiritual, art and politics, South and North. When his former political cellmate Kim Dae-Jung became president of Korea in 1998, Ko Un because the first citizen from the South to be invited to tour the North. From that visit came this deceptively simple and deeply engaging book.

Sunny Jung and Hillel Schwartz provide lyrical and penetrating translations and complement the poems with essential maps.
