About This Book

Salmon is an allegorical tale in which poet Ahn anthropo-morphizes the salmon's homing instinct to struggle upstream to its birthplace. This poignant journey weaves across the Bering Sea and the Kamchatka Peninsula, the cold wilds of the northern Pacific to Alaska, and back come again to Namdaechon, a river in Korea. The author's moving narrative explores the salmon's pain, joy, struggles that come with coming of age and longing for love.

With a touching mixture of parables, Salmon reaches its climax when the hero, Silver Salmon, attains the eyes he can see but others cannot. In praising Salmon's sensitive call to regain the eyes in the heart people have lost, a Korean poet remarked that, if there is The Little Prince in France, there Salmon in Korea.
