Pictured Ku Sang (Ku Sangjun, 1919-2004)

Translated with Introduction and Commentary by Chan E. Park

Writes Chan E. Park, PhD, Professor of Korean language, literature, and performance at Ohio State, "the works of Ku Sang, [are] the primary inspiration for this five-volume series (2010-2015)." Alone With Myself features 38 translated poems of the preeminent poet, essayist, playwright, philospher and critic, Ku Sang.

This is book five in the Songs of Thorns and Flowers: Bilingual Performance and Discourse on Modern Korean Poetry Series, a pedagogical approach to modern Korean poetry for college-level Korean language and literature education outside Korea. To make visible the rhetorical and semantic transfer from Korean to English, the original and the translated poems are laid side by side. Historical explanations and requisite annotations on language use are provided where appropriate or needed. 

Excellent for Korean educators, foreign language educators, and poetic pursuits. Contains companion CD with interviews, poems, and readings, with English subtitles. Beautifully bound book is bilingual: Korean-English
