Korea's modern poetry is filled with many different voices and
styles, subjects and views, moves and countermoves, yet it still
remains relatively unknown outside of Korea itself. This is in part
because the Korean language, a rich medium for poetry, has been
ranked among the most difficult for English speakers to learn.
The Columbia Anthology of Modern Korean Poetry is the only
up-to-date representative gathering of Korean poetry from the
twentieth century in English, far more generous in its selection
and material than previous anthologies. It presents 228 poems by 34
modern Korean poets, including renowned poets such as So Chongju
and Kim Chiha.
