FREE VERSE EDITIONS, edited by Jon Thompson | Like many younger Korean poets, SHIM BO-SEON writes in an allusive, indirect style about topics that are in themselves familiar, eating rice, taking off clothes, living in an apartment block, struggling with human relationships. He captures some sparkling moments of joys and sorrows, hopes and frustrations that have been concealed in daily life in rather modest and witty words. The circular movements of concealment and revelation of the mystery that an individual experiences are evoked in turn, always lightly. As a poet-critic, Shim fills his lines with the melodies of plain speech, with subtle thoughts about relationships in the world. Shim made his poetic debut in 1994, but he only published his first collection fourteen years later in 2008. FIFTEEN SECONDS WITHOUT SORROW is a translation of that first volume, containing the poet's earliest, freshest poems. They are characterized by the subtlest feeling of the distance between fantasy and reality and a strong awareness of the difficulty of saying something significant simply. Shim raises the philosophical question of the meaning of living as a human being in the world, that is, where one is in this world at a certain moment. His poems epitomize the doubts, values, beliefs, and distance of the individual passing through the ordinary days and nights. | ABOUT THE POET: SHIM BO-SEON was born in Seoul in 1970, studied sociology at Seoul National University, and received his PhD from Columbia University, New York.
