Not so many people love poetry. Most people, if any, don't like poems mainly under the reason that they couldn't understand them. Written by a warm-hearted poet as an introduction to poems, this book is enough to encourage those readers who otherwise are shy from loving verse, to get easily access to the genre. The author of "Poems That Come Closer to Me" has put together a collection of 50 poems he likes most. The entries include the poems by such modern Korean poets as KIM So Wol, KIM Su Yung, SEO Jeong Ju, and GO Eun. Each of the 50 poems and KIM's kind explanation deeply touch, as well as open and please, the mind of those who read them. Whether they are novices or not, it doesn't matter. Any one can really enjoy the world of poems through this book.
