Words Splitting on the Page: I'm OK, I'm Pig! by Kim Hyesoon


I first heard Kim Hyesoon at Poetry Parnassus, the global festival of poetry which took place in London’s Olympic year. Kim Hyesoon shared the stage with Seamus Heaney. It was the last time I heard Seamus Heaney read in public and the first time I heard Kim Hyesoon, and even at the time it felt momentous. Heaney read some of his best-known poems. graceful, lyrical, and contemplative. The birdlike Kim Hyesoon wove a pattern of poems, so strangely compelling and curious, and utterly unlike anything I had heard before. In April 2014, Kim returned to the Southbank Centre to read from the poems published in I’m OK, I’m Pig! and Modern Poetry in Translation.
