Bedtime || Riverbed
For the tiger, for the bear, for the children, for the lovers. These poems are reflections in water. They are Korean folk retellings rippling with “Hanja”; Classical Chinese characters representing ideas incorporated into the Korean language with Korean meaning & pronunciation. Each of the four poems in this book is preceded by a key; a conglomeration of the Hanja characters used in the text, their native Korean “Hangul” counterparts, Latin alphabet renderings of their pronunciation, & some potential translations & associations.
