Even in the Wind Blowing through the Leaves

$34.50

Even in the Wind Blowing through the Leaves is a book to be loved. It combines 50 starry poems by Yun Dong-ju, a great poet of Korea and the spirit of the independence movement, and was illustrated with watercolor and calligraphy by Lee Young-hee, author of Gakyeon. In the meantime, Yun Dong-ju was a poet who was loved by many Koreans, but there are not many people who properly portrayed the poems he wrote. Gakyeon artist Lee Young-hee meticulously interpreted Yun Dong-ju’s poems for a long time, and based on this, created her own wonderful watercolor calligraphy work. In addition, the English that the native speaker meticulously supervised is a translation written more closely to Yun Dong-ju’s poetic language.
