From the publisher’s website:
A generous selection of poems by one of Korea’s most honored and highly regarded poets. Kim Namjo published her first book of poems, Life (Moksum), in 1953. In the years since then, in another ten collections of poems, she has explored in her books, an intensely experienced religious faith, and a passionate affirmation of life. This is the first collection of poems by a Korean woman writer to be published in English language translation.
