‘Informal Sadness’ That Doesn’t Make the Edge of Tears
Joo-Chul Ahn’s New Poem Collection Feeling Never Stops
The ‘K-Poet’ series introduces the essence of Korean poetry that you always want to read at your bedside. Korean poetry, which will be considered as a masterpiece over time, is introduced to readers and translated into English and known to the world, making Korean literature a world-class literature.
The sixteenth in the ‘K-Poet’ series is Ahn Joo-cheol’s new gaze collection, The Feeling Never Stops. Ahn Joo-cheol says he wants to remember his neighbor’s sadness better than his own. This kind of heart is contained in this collection of poetry. Novelist Kim Do-yeon said, “It was stupid to waste a lot of energy trying to escape from memory.” It makes you think. Ahn Joo-cheol’s poem tells us about the worries of staying with our daily lives, allowing us to share our worries, both big and small, and then relieve them.
