김혜순 (KIM Hyesoon)

KIM Hyesoon (b. 1955) was born in Wooljin, Kyungsang Province and made her literary debut in 1979. She studied Korean Literature at Konkuk University and currently teaches creative writing at Seoul Institute of the Arts. Her poetry collections include From Yet Another Star (1981), My Father’s Scarecrow (1985), Hell in Certain Star (1987), Seoul, My Upanishad (1994), Poor Love Machine (1997), To the Mananger of Calendar Factory (2000), A Cup of Red Mirror (2004) and Your First (2008). Having explored the female body with particular interest, her poetic words go deeper into the world of mundane existence in contemporary Korean society. Freely experimenting poetic forms and words deeply entrenched in female condition of life, the poet invites readers to rethink of the nature of experience in this world. Her collection Mommy Must be a Fountain of Feathers (translated by Don Mee Choi, Action Books, 2008) was recently reviewed in Cordite.
