Members of this list interested in Korean poetry might want to know that Green Integer (LA) have just published a substantial collection of poems by Lee SiYoung, "Patterns," which I have translated together with Professor Yoo Hui-Sok. Lee was for 20 years the general editor at Changbi and is currently President of the Korean Writers Association. Some of his earlier poems were translated in the volume Variations (Cornell EAS, 2001). His poems are mainly tightly constructed lyrics but a considerable number are more directly oriented toward questions of social inequalities and recent Korean history.
