Yi Tal

Yi Tal (1561-1618) was one of three chief promulgators of the T’ang style in Korean poetry. The simplicity and straightforwardness of his poetry proved a powerful influence on his students, two of whom would later be remembered as among the most important classical writers in Korean literature (Nansŏrhŏn and Kyun Hŏ). Despite his intelligence, Yi was denied any meaningful position or service because he was the son of a concubine. He spent his days wandering the Korean peninsula and visiting friends, mostly living in poverty.  

AGNI has published the following work by Yi Tal:

Falling Blossoms (translated from the Korean by Ian Haight and T’ae-yong Hŏ )
