EventName [Culture Day] Translation: Poetry, Meeting with Poet Ha Jaeyoun
Period 2017-07-26 ~ 2017-07-26
Place

     For Culture Day on July 26, the Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI Korea, President: Kim Seong-Kon, professor Emeritus at Seoul National University) held a ‘Meeting with a Writer’ event at CAFE PASTEL In Sinchon at 7:30 in the evening.

     Following the event in June, the July Culture Day event was also held under the title of Translation : Poetry, meaning ‘poetry in translation’. The event took the form of bilingual poetry readings featuring the poet Ha Jaeyoun and the LTI Korea Translation Academy’s translators  Soohyun Yang, Seok Hyemi, and translation instructor Jake Levine.

     The three translators translated nine of Ha’s works into English prior to the event. Ha gave readings in Korean and the translators in English, one after the other.

     This event was especially meaningful in that one of the works presented had been previously translated (<Annyeong, Dracula (Goodbye, Dracula)> [translated by Jeong Eungwi and An Seonjae]). The new translation of the work allowed the poet and the translators to share the act of translation together and deepen their communication in the process.

     The Culture Day event ended with a special presentation where instructor and poet Jake Levine wrote a poem in response to Ha, and Ha personally translated the poem into Korean and gave a recital to the audience.

     This year, a total of four readings with Korean writers and LTI Korea Translation Academy translators are being held for Culture Day. The events will serve as chances for ordinary readers and local residents to learn more about and take a deeper interest in Korean literature and translation.
