Summary

"Ho Kyun's poetry is in the tradition of his master, the incomparable Tu Fu, while remaining fully his own. Writing nine centuries later, Ho's poetry strikes many parallels-the experiences of war and exile and constant struggle-and his voice is similarly humane. This is rich and enlightening reading."-Sam HamillBorderland Roads is a selection of poems from the writer Ho Kyun, one of Korea's literary elite in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. The book catalogs the Japanese invasions of Korea in 1592 and 1597-the only record of its kind of these events in poetry.
