About This Book
Shin Kyong-rim stands tall among Korea's modern poets. One of the most influential poets in the realm of grassroots realism, he has immersed himself in the world of the working class and farmers ¯ Shin himself was a farmer. In the early 1970s when the country was under authoritarian rule, his first collection "Nongmu" (Farmers' Dance) had a profound impact on Korean literature.
At the age of 74, he now unveils a collection of autobiographical essays. In this book spruced up with some drawings, he recalls his childhood and relations he constructed with other poets and novelists.
Full of wit and hearty episodes, the book allows readers to have a rare peek into the relationships he shared with many literary figures, including the late novelist Lee Moon-koo. Just like the title of the book, Lee must have been one of the friends that made the author happy by just being together in the "good old days."
