Korean Poetry, Yesterday and Today
November 1, 2019 - 12:15-13:00
A special lecture at the University of Oslo, in which poet Kim Yong Taik will be talking about Korean modern poetry, literary history of Korea, as well as his own poetry.
Kim Yong Taik works are known for demonstrating what is forgotten in the bustle of modern life—the countryside, a leaf of grass, the smell of one’s mother’s hair. Kim’s affectionate and delicate treatment of the everyday affairs of people living in the countryside offered urban dwellers an unadulterated account of rural farming communities.
