Himalaya Poems

Description

In 1997, Korean poet Ko Un spent forty days of rough travelling through Tibet, despite the fact that, years before, the poet had learned that an undiagnosed attack of tuberculosis in his youth had seriously damaged his lungs. Enduring terrible pain and near death, the poet survived to write the powerful poems of this volume, which both describe and evaluate his journey. Ko's moving poems continue to reveal just how majestic and intelligent his work is. Translated by Brother Anthony and Lee Sang-Wha, Himalaya Poems is a stunning testament to the energy of life.
