From the publisher’s website:

Park Je-chun is a major poet in Korea today. His works are marked by a poetic imagination and a sensibility which draw largely on Korean Buddhist and Taoist traditions, as well as Korean classical literature. Though he is widely read in the Oriental classics and Western poetry, Park’s emotions, imagery, and metaphors are uniquely Korean. This volume contains a wide selection of the poems which translate effectively into the English language. Park has published several other books of poems, and has won prestigious literary distinctions, including the Modern Literature Prize.
