Jeong Ho-seung

Jeong Ho-seung is a popular South Korean poet. Born in South Gyeongsang Province, on 3 January 1950 Jeong grew up in Daegu, graduated in Korean literature from Kyung Hee University. In that same year he began to contribute to the literary magazine Anti-Poetry and in 1982 he published his first novel, A Memorial Service for the Departed, he was the winner of the Tenth Dong Seo Literary Prize in 1997 winning the So-Wol Literary Prize Jeong's themes include societal schisms and alienation, but his work presents these themes with lyrical grace and innocence that removes any trace of hectoring. Jeong intentionally focuses on suffering in the hope that in despair some hope can be found and that this can become the basis for a more successful future; the poet depicts the resentment and enmity that stirs in the hearts of farmers and workers whose roots have been taken from them in a sterile South Korean society, their attempts to resist and overcome these conditions. He spoke for the masses and took as his poetic duty, praising people for their willful and courageous attitude toward life and helping them believe in their future.

Jeong's style is familiar, as in folk songs or popular ballads, which critics attribute to three things. First, they have the rhythm of songs. Second, his vocabulary is chosen for its emotive nature, he takes the quotidian live of Koreans and makes them into dramatic stories. ソウルのイエス Five poems in English at Azalea: Journal of Korean Literature and Culture "Snail" at Alchemy: Journal of Translation "South Han River" at Alchemy: Journal of Translation 달밤. 2004. 이 짧은 시간 동안. 2004. 눈물이 나면 기차를 타라. 1999. 사랑하다가 죽어버려라. 1997. 바다로 날아간 까치. 1996. 별들은 따뜻하다. 1990. 슬픔이 기쁨에게. 1979. 내가 사랑하는 사람 Hankook Ilbo New Spring Literary Contest Sowol Poetry Prize Chosun Ilbo New Spring Literary Contest Daehan Daily New Spring Literary Contest Chosun Ilbo New Spring Literary Contest Jeong Jiyong Literature Prize List of Korea-related topics Poem 산낙지를 위하여 with a German translation About the poet
