Publisher's Summary

The Korean Soul: A Collection of Poems by H. C. Kim explores themes and ideas that are of importance to Koreans around the world, such as the current stand-off between South Korea and North Korea. By hearing H. C. Kim's poems, the listener will be able to see through the soul of Koreans. These poems are powerful testimonies to collective experiences of a people who boast 5,000+ years of history. There were happy moments, sad moments, tragic moments - but they were all memorable experiences.

Powerful ideas explored in the poems include the Korean encounter with colonialism. Insightful verses on power and powerlessness make an important contribution to the spirit of human rights and make the listener a believer in the human potential and will. Those who are suffering will find empathy and sympathy in the common human experience of suffering, captured amazingly in poetry. In 1995, the poet, H. C. Kim, was selected as one of ten Raoul Wallenberg Scholars in a nationwide competition in the United States. The ten scholars spent a year in Israel at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to explore the spirit of human rights and democracy and their importance in the modern world. Kim's poems exhibit a deep social consciousness that stems from that experience.
