The Worm Poet: Selected Poems of Sungsun Lee

by Sungsun Lee, Translated by Jongyoll Choi


Sungsun Lee is a great nature poet. In his poems, like pictures of nature, he always communicates with all things in the universe. He shows how to communicate with others, including humans, animals, plants, and even lifeless things. Sungsun especially shows the beautiful and mysterious world of nature that we can’t see with our eyes. He sees the universe in a drop of water, and a human life through the naked tree. Like Gary Snyder, he describes an organic being interacting with plants, animals, and microbiology, within a huge boundary. Every element in the world is inter-dependent in his poems; after all, everything gets its reality by interlacing with others.
