Indeterminate Inflorescence

Kick against words like you would kick back on a swing. You’ve got to feel as if the soles of your feet are touching the sky.

Indeterminate Inflorescence is a collection of aphorisms on poetry-writing taken from the creative writing lectures of Lee Seong-bok, one of South Korea's most prominent living poets. These 470 meditations, collected by his students, are evocative micro-poems in their own right. Some express ideas at once familiar and breathtakingly new - truths we could sense but not put into words; others unfurl fresh vistas and worlds to explore in their exciting and inspiring poetics.

Translated into English by Anton Hur.
