Songs from Korea

Editor: Pyun Yung-tai
Translated by:
Publisher: , 1936

Like the similar volume, Tales from Korea, this title was originally self-published (in 1936) and then republished on several occasions. For example the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa has in its library a copy of the 1948 International Cultural Association of Korea edition. The Koreana Museum in Seoul has a copy of the 1936 edition – the image accompanying this database entry. The Koreana website also has a couple of images of the inside of the book where you can get a view of Pyun’s translations of three poems.

Very difficult to find.
