This is an interview with the KLN Vol. 60 Featured Writer Ra Heeduk. The interviewer, poet Lee Da Hee, focuses on the ecological trends evident in poet Rah Heeduk’s recent poems as a major topic of discussion and asks questions about the poet’s creative process, sources of inspiration, and the changes in her thematic consciousness. Shedding light on the poet’s attention to the humble beings who are the first to be sacrificed in the climate crisis, the interview prompts the reader to contemplate the vital role that poetry and art should undertake in the Anthropocene.

KLN 60호의 특집작가 나희덕의 인터뷰다. 인터뷰어 이다희 시인이 나희덕 시인의 최근 시에서 나타나는 생태주의적 동향을 주요 화두로서 시인의 창작사와 영감의 원천, 주제의식의 변화에 대하여 질문한다. 기후 위기로 가장 먼저 희생되는 낮은 존재들에 주의를 기울이는 시인의 모습을 비추며, 인터뷰는 인류세 시대에 시와 예술이 맡아야 하는 경종의 역할이 무엇인지 고민하도록 한다.
