Walking on the Washing Line: Poems of Kim Seung-hee

Kim Seung-Hee's poetry is usually described in Korea as feminist, subversive, and surrealist. Most important is the way her poetic voices differ radically from any other Korean poet's, male or female. Her work has sometimes found a readier acceptance among readers of the English translations than among Koreans reading the originals, who are often puzzled by the seeming lack of conventional poetic themes and female sensitivity. Bilingual volume in English/Korean.
