"Sung-Il Lee lays before us samples of the great clasical form of Korean poetry called Kasa, so sadly unknown to western readers along with any coherent knowledge of the country's past and its culture. One will be so much better off for having read this book." --Gregory Rabassa, Translator of Nobel Prize Winners, Miguel Angel Asturias and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Winner of National Book Award, the PEN Translation Award, the National Medal of Arts
