Summary

A collection of poems.

Request Line at Noon is a poetry collection that draws on the author’s observational acuity and brings together reflections on the meaning of everyday life in modern times.

From Request Line at Noon
“We were friendly,
Inconsiderate.
Everyone moved forward to an end.
You lost your love
And I skipped rope.
The surging music
At the minimum altitude of my soul;
The music from the ‘Request Line at Noon’ We were always
Flowing away regularly….”

Born in Seoul, Korea, Lee Jangwook majored in Russian literature at Korea University. He has worked as an editor and also as a professor of creative writing at Chosun University in Korea. Lee began his writing career in earnest in 1994 when a series of his poems won the new writer’s award in the poetry division of the literary journal Contemporary Literature. Lee has published two collections of poetry in Korea, Sand Mountain in My Sleep and Hopeful Songs at Noon, as well as a novel, Cheerful Devils of Callot. In addition to strictly literary works, he has written two collections of literary criticism, My Gloomy Modern Boy and Revolution and Modernism: Russian Poetry and Its Aesthetics.
