Yi Mun yol made a strong impression particularly on young readers with two early works Son of Man 1979 and A Portrait of My Youth 1981 The theme of both is a young man s uest for spiritual enlightenment He returns to the theme in this work this time following the initially young man through his entire life Of the three works The Poet is the most interesting and also the most artistically successfulThe book begins with an Author s Preface that is signed Yi Mun yol and is evidently to be taken or less at face value He explains the genesis of the work which he describes as a new novel based on the life of Kim of the Bamboo Hat Kim Sakkat Kim is a real historical figure Kim Pyonyon 1807 1863 a wandering poet is a real historical figure Kim Pyonyon 1807 1863 a wandering poet is still famous today Yi explains that he became interested in him when he learned they shared the same fate which is to be the descendant of a traitor and bear the stigma of their ancestor s crime In the case of Kim the ancestor was his grandfather an official who collaborated with rebels in the case of Yi it was his father a southerner who went north during the Korean War Yi represents his story as based on sources not used in the official accounts of Kim s life and differing from those accounts on some points The narrative is straightforward and unencumbered by footnotes or other scholarly flourishes It divides Kim s life into stages based on what ind of poetry he composed to whom it was addressed and with what intention In terms of the novel these stages represent the inner wanderings of Kim as he searches for and ultimately finds the true way of the poet He enters his final stage after an unrecorded but intense dialog with another poet Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story known as The Old Drunkard whom he has sought out twenty years after their original meeting As a result his poetry which had undergone various stages of transformation finally had to be put into forms other than spoken words and written letters which was no easy matter As soon as he ceased to compose poems as acts of dialogue he was no longer a poet as far as the world was concerned As far as other people were concerned he was nothing than an old traveler passing their village looking half asleep and half awake filled with a strange sense of self contentment p 190However what they saw was not all there was as becomes clear at the end of the book A book about this man s life I am impressed by the man as a poet after reading the article than after reading the book It is odd that the book didn t include all of these linguistic games he was able to do it touches upon them but just barely Anyway taken together with that article the book is uite interesting Half biography half historical novel Yi Mun Yol s The Poet opens with a scene of startling power a mother from a noble Korean houseeens as her four and six year old sons are sent away with a freed serf to hide them from the royal edict of execution against the entire family The boys destination is another serf emancipated so that he will hide them he scolds them in public to How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead keep up the appearance of being the true father only to apologize to them afterwards The family s sin is to descend from a grandfather who has not only surren. 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. Complex rules they had established he would have to pull one of his own teeth out In the legend the monk ends up toothless This is held to be a mark of the excellence of Kim s poetic capabilities I want tonow what ind of son of a bitch would even agree to such a competition The man was bitter bitter bitterFortunately Kim has a chance meeting with the Old Drunkard who planted the seed of the realization that poetry is not rules and cleverness but character and insight The old man defends an attitude similar to that of the original Taoist masters Chuang tzu and Lao tzu The Old Drunkard euated poet with sage Though it was only a seed and the story of Kim s new life as itinerant poet was just beginning the seed was to germinate and sprout After various adventures and internal development Yi s Kim eventually realizes that the true poet s poem is his life that the true poet is a sage Worldly ambition and the bitterness and resentment that come with unfulfilled ambition are unutterably irrelevant The book ends with Kim s apotheosis as witnessed by his eldest sonIn the process of telling this story of Kim Yi also provides a picture of life in Korea at the end of the Choson era when the social fabric was tearing under the strains of poor harvests and the total corruption of all the institutions in the country when governments officials at all levels were interested solely in enriching themselves and maintaining their advantages when the military would steal everything they could carry as they moved about the country beating down rebellions and when the Confucian meritocracy was only a shadow of itselfWestern readers should be forewarned that Yi does not observe the conventions of historical fiction They Are Familiar With Neither are familiar with neither Shiba Ryotaro Though Shiba Ryotaro though Shiba and Yi s works vary from our expectations in different ways In much of the text it appears that Yi intends to write a critical biography of Kim he pulls back from the story analyzes the evidence and proposes hypotheses and arguments Elsewhere he empathetically projects himself directly into Kim s mind and gives us his thoughts and actions along the lines of historical fiction in the modern West This inconsistency in tone and authorial stance may disturb some readers but the I read outside of the 19th and 20th century Western fictional canon the less I care about such and 20th century Western fictional canon the less I care about such The crux is whether the author communicates something interesting beautiful moving andor profound No The image above is that of a monument to Kim Pyong yon According to this sourcehttpwwwktlitcomkim sakkat orea among others Kim Sakkat was also influential in the Korean rap scene and was mentioned by name in the first Korean rap Though the grandfather was drawn and uartered most of the family survived by scattering throughout the country until they were pardoned a few years later Their lives were spared but their property remained confiscated Isn t it the case that some postmodernists reject these inds of consistency in favor of other inds Conventions do help to ease communication but they also uickly become restrictive and limiting not only on expression but even on the ability to perceive Rating. Ion as an outstanding poet; a man constantly tempted to make compromises even to the point of betraying his family in order to fulfil his mother's ambition and yet survive as a free spirit This delicately told story of a lonely fight for self respect of a uest to reconcile duty and privilege in an oppressive society is a luminous parable for our time. ,
