    Ra Heeduk / 나희덕 / 2017 / literature > Korean Literature > Korean Poetry > 21st century poetry

    Les poèmes de Ra Hee-duk (lauréate de nombreux prix prestigieux en Corée du Sud) invitent le lecteur à saisir l'étrangeté du quotidien, à faire un pas de côté. Dans Le ver à soie marqué d'un point noir, un arbre avale un oiseau, un serpent pleure, la pupille du père est de boue, un passant revêt un habit de cendres blanches. La puissance de cette poésie tient dans cette reconnaissance incertaine du monde,dans ce vacillement des impressions.   Source: https://www.lalibrairie.com/livres/le-ver-a-soie-marque-d-un-point-noir-hee-duk-ra_0-4799062_9782841162437.html

    Throughout the twentieth century, few countries in Asia suffered more from foreign occupation, civil war, and international military conflict than Korea. The Colors of Dawn brings together the moving and powerful voices of over forty Korean poets from these turbulent years. From 1903 to 1945, the Japanese Empire occupied the Korean peninsula and instituted measures to annihilate the nation and its culture. After Japan's defeat in WWII, Korea became a killing ground during the Korean War (1950 to 1953). During this period and into the 1980s, South Korea was controlled by a military dictatorship, and today it remains on war footing. In the midst of internal and external conflicts, Korea's poets—threatened by the authorities with torture, imprisonment, and death—found ways to express their fierce desire for freedom and self-governance. The result is a century of outstanding poetry, from Sim Hun (1901) to more familiar modern and contemporary poets, such as Kim Chi-ha and Ko Ŭn.

  • What is Darkening
    English(English) Book Available

    Ra Heeduk / 나희덕 / 2006 / literature > Korean Literature > Korean Poetry > 21st century poetry

    "What Is Darkening," the fourth collection of poems by poet Ra Hee-duk (b.1966), has now been translated and published in English. The book talks about her concept of life and her faith. The book includes the poems "What Is Darkening," "Near the Peach Tree," "A Month for an Ax," "Raindrop," and "Obsessed with a Spider." The poem "What is Darkening," lending its title to the book, starts with "When 5:44 becomes 5:45/ as I lie in the room," explaining what it means to be "darkening." For the poet, the passage of time means "darkening." As time takes warmth away from the world, a poplar falls in the distance and its bark begins to dry. It is the moment of death. Then, all memory stops at 5:45. In the end, the poet rubs her broken ribs alone and recalls her own past.   Source: http://www.korea.net/NewsFocus/Culture/view?articleId=124357

  • A GALAXY OF WHALE POEMS
    English(English) Book Available

    KIM NAM-JO et al / 김남조 et al / 2005 / literature > Korean Literature > Complete Collection, Library > Complete Collection & Library (more than 2 writers)

    In Ulsan, Korea, there are rare paintings of whales engraved on a rock by prehistoric men thousands of years ago. One of these outstanding engravings portrays a mother whale and her baby. Experts on Cetaceans conjecture that they could be Korean gray whales. Even prehistoric men must have been attracted by the strong maternal love of the female gray whales. Across the centuries from the prehistoric past, this collection of whale poems, sponsored by the Ulsan Writers Assembly and Ulasan Metropolitan City, is akin to the engravings of our prehistoric forefathers who delicately inscribed their caring motherly love on an ancient rock. Like the prehistoric engravings in Ulsan, this book of whale poems will engrave the Korean people s ever-lasting love for whales on the heart of all people in this world.
