Poetry off the Shelf: Sijo Poetry with David McCann (No Host Event)

Saturday, Nov 16, 3:00PM

Poetry Foundation
61 West Superior Street
Free admission

David McCann returns to discuss the popular Korean lyric in a workshop format, including students who entered the Sejong Cultural Society’s annual sijo contest. Like Japanese haiku, sijo has a rich history, but its larger form makes room for narrative turns and emotions. McCann teaches at Harvard and is the author of five books of poetry, including Urban Temple: Sijo Twisted and Straight, published in Korean translation by Ch’angbi Publishers in Seoul last year. A reception featuring traditional Korean food follows.

Co-sponsored with the Sejong Cultural Society
