Even Birds Leave The World: Selected Poems of Ji-woo Hwang
Ji-woo Hwang’s poems describe a life governed by the inescapable reality that all hell can break loose at any time, a reality that now permates our own culture. How, we might wonder, can we live like this? Hwang’s response, in a poem addressed to Charlie Chaplin. His poems continue to find readers in his newly democratic land, for they mix lyrical intensity with an acute political sensibility, creating an uneasy tension that makes them by turns moving, humorous, and unnerving. Nor is he afraid to offend, speaking truth to power, whether his subject is the oppressiveness of dictatorship or the emptiness of consumerism.
