Free read ☆ 시인 Author Yi Mun-Yol ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read & Download é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ß Yi Mun-Yol Yi Mun-Yol ß 6 Download When the King's governor after falling into rebel hands and changing sides is recaptured by the royal troops not only is he executed but his son and grandsons are by family tie condemned to death as traitors The little grandsons are uickly sent away in disguise to save their lives While the elder boy grows up to be a street vendor living by his wits. Yi Mun yol 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 The Poet tells the story of the 19th Century Korean itinerant poet Kim Pyeong yeon better known by his nickname Kim Sakkat or Kim of the Bamboo Rain Hat For on the poetry see the English edition of his collected works my review was born to a pivotal moment in Korea s development He was born and grew up in an age when new ideas especially the Practical Learning and Catholicism were being introduced from China There was no challenge to the monarchy or the system of government as such but uestions were beginning to arise in structural terms about such issues as the possession and distribution of wealth and the nature of human relationshipsAs a child grew up in a noble family but his grandfather governor of a Northern region was convicted of treason when he first surrender to a rebellion then was believed to have actually joined his sympathies to the rebel The grandfather was hung and uartered and the death sentence would normally have applied to his descendants to the 2nd generation so the young was taken to live with a family retainer as his son Even when clemency of a sort was granted to the family the stench of treachery still lingered The entire retaliatory system against treason was tenacious and thorough even when it deigned to show a degree of leniency They royal court might have decided against carrying out the penalty directly but that by no means meant that the system as such had abandoned its malice towards them The ideology of the system long incubated through various pedagogical methods together with the examples of fearful punishment freuently meted out on traitors had raised people s responses to an almost instinctive level Not only the classes who shared in the structures and advantages of society but even those who were the victims of those structures had been conditioned to shudder instinctively at the very word traitor and to consider treason as some kind of deadly disease that could be caught merely by being in the proximity of the descendants of such a person s novel is ostensibly a historic retelling of s life but the author writes it as a commentary on the traditional accounts of his life attempting to fill in the gaps and provide his own coherent albeit partially fiction version As an example the traditional accounts start with the teenager winning a poetry competition with a polemic against the treacherous governor not realising the family connection only to find out afterwards that his target was his own grandfather Here the author uestions the likelihood of this could the poet really have grown up fleeing for his life and moving from prosperity to poverty shunned by society without realising why and suggests what might have happened by giving his own unsourced account of his life up to the competition Ultimately the novel euates poetry will rebellion having little sympathy for abstract and academic approaches Not all non conformists are poets But all poets are non conformists Some poets have absolutely none of the usual characteristics of a non conformist They are faithful to the normal order of life laughing at its joys weeping at its sorrows Yet they too are non conformists For if a person is a poet at all he is bound to deviate from the norm at least in the use of language Language can rise to the heavenly realms of high poetry only when it transcends the muddy ground of practicality After becoming a father and seeming to settle down makes the radical decision to leave his wife and children and become an itinerant poet donning the trademark hat that would give him the name by which he became known It was now as he prepared to set out that he put on for the first time the large bamboo hat destined in later times to give him the nickname which replaced his true name completely He wore it to conceal himself from Heaven s gaze to which he felt that he could no longer expose himself with a clear conscience on account of the sin of disloyalty to the throne he had inherited with his blood from their grandfather and the sin against family piety of which he himself had been guilty towards his grandfather to which had to be added a further sin against piety since he had been unable to fulfil his mother s lifelong hopesPerhaps there was yet another feeling of guilt he hoped to hide under that all covering bamboo shield that arising from the pity inspired by his wife as she saw him off trembling with a nameless dread yet never once asking him not to go with Hak kyun out playing childish games and little Ik kyun nothing than a new born baby the Korean caption reads where shall I go today is almost as famous for his colourful life as for his clever but cutting and often scatological poetry but s focus is on how his poetry developed and the influences from his life that led to his poetic development As for the other incidents that happened in the Diamond Mountains the reporting of them can be left to the colourful legends about him The main concern here is his life as a poet not as a buffoon a philanderer a beggar or a sharp tongue There is just one episode that needs to be told in detail that involving his encounter with the Old Drunkard For it was that meeting that finally led him to take the turning that made a poet of him This fateful meeting took place in the Diamond Mountains now known as or Mount Kumkang and in North Korea an area to which the poet returned freuently and which inspired much of his poetry The drunkard in uestion turned out to be a poet and uestioned s own aesthetic approach based on his burning sense of guilt and resentment than any real poetic sensibility He had set out Away from home and kindred from the past and its wounded shattered ambitions But he was still only someone deviating from the norm not yet fully a poet Needless to say he freuently wrote poems but only as one necessary accomplishment of a scholar or a pastime suitable for a gentleman their dominant emotion was not essentially poetic but the sentiment of resentment and idleness which now replaced the ambition that had previously burned in himBut the Old Drunkard tells him True poetry stands solely by its own worth It doesn t have to grovel before the powerful it has no need to be cowed in the presence of learning It doesn t have to keep one eye on the feelings of the rich it has no need to fear the hatred of the deprived It is not to be measured with the yardstick of what is right or weighed only on the scales of what is true It is self contained and self sufficient also has another purpose in mind than a simple if worthwhile historical novel s novels often touch on religion and the poet s guilt has clear echoes of original sin The shadow of a complicity that ultimately came to seem like a sense of original sin on account of the way guilt with crime was considered to be inherited with public sentiment for the preservation of the system like an obsession than simple obedience and the lust for revenge always being revived by the inertia of the lower administration he eventually came to consider the state and its laws as nothing but latent violence And eually pertinently the stain on his record eually echoes that of those whose families end up caught on opposite sides of the Korean War both in the war itself and the subseuent decades of anti Communistanti capitalist persecution in the South and North respectively a situation that applies to the author himself a topic explored further in the novella Meeting With My Brother next on my reading list The novel contains a clever nod to this towards the end when the poet finds himself caught up in a popular rebellion The poetry included at this point in the novel unlike the other poems featured which are historic originals is actually of the author s own invention as the translator explainsThe revolutionary poems in this chapter unlike the poems uoted previously are not part of the works traditionally ascribed to the poet They are composed by Yi Mun yol in conscious imitation of radical workers poems written in recent years in South Korea or of the militant songs of the North Korean regime The novel ends movingly with the historically documented and unsuccessful attempt of the poet s son to make his father come back to the family home In the novel his son realises the attempt is ultimately futile Would he be able to make clouds move and flowers bloom once back in his own shabby room with its thatched roof Would he still be able to live lofty and indifferent like some old pine tree or a moss covered rock once supported by the labours of Ik kyun his wife and mother and doing his own share of trivial housekeeping chores Would his father still be able to be a poet in the midst of cold stares directed at an old failure come home to prepare for death or surrounded by a throng of third rate poets drawn like moths around a light to the faded name of someone who in youth had been famous Would he still be able to be a poetThe man moving away in the glimmering darkness was not his father He was a poet and nothing else A poet tied down by nothing in the whole world His father moved beyond the brushwood gate of the inn and stepped on to the grassy forest trail at that very moment he vanished completely Has he turned into a tree Or a rock Or a white brier rose Or the early morning mist now beginning to thicken As those thoughts came to him Ik kyun uickly changed his still unspoken words of protest into a blessing Farewell May you ever find peace and plenty in your poetryUltimately a fascinating character study of a poet s life and vocation albeit one where the prose is very far from lyrical The English reader also struggles a little with the poetry which relies rather heavily on Chinese and Korea world play see review of the Collected Works linked above and has to take the traditional accounts on which the author comments on trust The translation is by Brother Anthony of Taize a truly wonderful ambassador for Anglo Korean relations and for Korean literature working here with Chong wa Chung and who also provided a very helpful introduction as well as notes on these topics where neededUseful reviews and articlesThe complete text of the book Anthony of Taize on translating Korean literature articles in the excellent Korean Literature in Translation website s Reading List the
