From April 21 to 25 in Goettingen and Erfurt in Germany, a reading of Ko Un’s poems and a roundtable talk
on his works were held. Wallstein Publishing organized this event to celebrate the publication of Ko Un’s
work, Awaken From Sleep (Beim Erwachen aus dem Schlaf). Two German poets, Wulf Kirsten and Uwe
Kolbe, presented a remarkable discussion of Ko Un’s work at the roundtable. Both Korean and German
writers shared their ideas on the role of today’s literature and writers.
