    1. Shiin (The Poet - 1992) is a piece of historical fiction written by one of Korea's leading contemporary novelists, Yi Mun-yol (b. 1948), which resurrects the life and times of the poet Kim Pyong-yon (1807 - 1863).(*) It appears that Yi chose to write about Kim because they had a fundamental commonality - Kim was the grandson of a "traitor" and Yi's father defected to North Korea on ideological grounds during the Korean War and left his family behind. The consequences for both Kim and Yi went wel [...]

    3. Yi Mun-yol (이문열) is perhaps my favourite of the Korean authors from the post-war generation of Korean authors, based on his classic My Twisted Hero and his first novel, The Son of Man, which was one of my favourite reads of 2016 (/review/show).The Poet tells the story of the 19th Century Korean itinerant poet 김병연 (Kim Pyeong-yeon), better known by his nickname 김삿갓 (Kim Sakkat – or Kim of the Bamboo Rain Hat.For more on the poetry, see the English edition of his collected work [...]

    4. Diziden kitaba uyarlama olan Gizli Bahçe'yi saymazsak Kore edebiyatından okuduğum ilk kitap oluyor Şair. Yazar burada efsaneden doğan ilginç bir halk hikayesini; meşhur şair Kim Sakkat'ın biyografisini kaleme almış. Asıl ismi Byungyeon olan şair, tarihi Kore dizilerinde sıkça gördüğümüz Joseon hanedanı zamanında yaşamış. Hikaye 1811 yılında şair 5 yaşındayken başlıyor. Dedesi Kim İksun soylu biri olmasına rağmen devlete ihanet ediyor ve soy kurutma cezasına ç [...]

    5. I really wanted to like 'the poet' but I did not enjoy it as much as I wanted. Slow to start, it never got very exciting for me. I did not like their interpretation of the meaning of poetry as I found it rather convoluted and pretentious. The character of the poet did not appeal to me and I was not able to sympathise with him.

    6. How often it is in life that something looked forward to and hoped for turns out to be disappointing, and those things sprung upon us, or that we stumble across despite ourselves, are great experiences. So it is with The Poet. My wife, who has an artistic temperament, bought this book second-hand because she liked the cover art (Tiger by Song'am) and, through a mis-communication I thought she had purchased it for me owing to its subject matter. I never would have purchased or read the book if le [...]

    7. A book about this man's life: ktlit/kim-sakkat-koreaAlthough, I am more impressed by the man as a poet after reading the article than after reading the book. It is odd that the book didn't include all of these linguistic games he was able to do (it touches upon them, but just barely). Anyway, taken together with that article, the book is quite interesting. Half biography, half historical novel.

    8. I can't see everyone liking this, but for me it was like one of those books that speaks directly to you. It tells the life of a famous 19th century Korean poet/vagabond who unfortunately hasn't made much of a jump into English, Kim Sakkat. While still a young boy, a rebellion occurs up where his grandfather is posted as a governor and when captured joins the rebels instead of accepting death. The flames are quelled, though, and his grandfather executed by the royal troops, and the family is now [...]

    9. Güney Koreli yazar Yi Mun-Yol'un tarihsel bir kurgu içerisinde bir şairin hayatını anlattığı eseri Şair, hem yazarın kendi yaşamından, hem de 19. yüzyılda yaşamış ünlü şair Kim Pyong-yon ya da bilinen adıyla Kim Sakkat'ın yaşamından yoğun izler taşımakta. Kitapta, üst sınıf bir ailenin çocuğu olarak dünyaya gelen Byungyoen'un, dedesinin isyancılara katılıp hain olarak ilan edilmesiyle birlikte değişen hayatı anlatılıyor. Dedesinin öldürülmesi ve ailesi [...]

    10. Zase jedna literární libůstka o životě korejského básníka Kim Sakkata (vlastním jménem Kim Pjongjon, 1807 - 1863) - aristokrata původem, tulákem, milovníkem žen a dobrého vína.Za soumraku ptáci na jedné větvi usínají, za úsvitu rozletí se každý jinam. Podívej. Lidský život už je takový, k čemu je máčet si rukávy slzami?Vždycky už budu litovat, že jsem se nedala na studium asijských jazyků. Kde jinde můžete vyjádřit květ broskvoně zopakováním znaku * [...]

    11. best korean lit i read in that i believe it is the only korean lit ive read outside of some ssay on Take Care of My Cat for east asian language major class. poems are apparently very punny with character choices + so on but i dont think it translates well, you just get these eerie quiet funny things story is kind of cool because its all about entrenched institutional prejudices f'ing over poor poeple, and the poet combats this by wrting blue collar songs about how noble people have topknots in t [...]

    12. Dönemin şartlarını ve o zamanda yaşamanın zorluklarını bir şairin yaşamı ile çok güzel betimlemiş yazar. Şairin yaşamını betimlerken kendi hayatından kesitlere de yer vermiştir. Kitapta bazı yerlerde imla hataları olsa da okurken rahatsız etmiyor. kozmokitap/2015/0

    13. La vida del poeta Coreano Kim Sa Kat llevada a través de una narrativa interesante y amena que en ningún momento decae para dejarnos en la incertidumbre del punto máximo de la poesía de este personaje de finaels del siglo 19.Excelente edición llevada al español por Edicines B.

    14. Korean fiction is only recently beginning to be translated into English. The first major author translated was Yi Mun-yol (The Poet, a historical epic, and Our Twisted Hero, a parable about living under dictatorship set in a boys' school)

    15. Korean historical fiction of a poet's life. Content interesting but flat, like The gardens of light ( Maalouf)
