The Irredoubtable Brother Anthony

Has an excellent page with links to his own translations of Korean fiction. This includes a range of short stories, but the bonus is three novellas and full novels by Yi Mun-yol, either still unpublished or out of print

  • Winter that Year
  • The Poet
  • Son of Man

And two novellas by Yi Oryong, the former Korean Minister of Culture

  • The General’s Beard
  • Phantom Legs

Regular readers will know I’m not as keen on translated Korean poetry (for a couple of reasons) but Brother Anthony also has a page of his translated poems, if that floats your literary boat.

It’s also just worth poking around his site, as he has been in the translation game a very long time, and has excellent links and takes.
