Synopsis:

These poems, written during and following the Korean War, reflect the reality of living in a country torn in half by political ideologies. Comparable to the Civil War in that it pitted brother against brother, the partitioning of the country following the war carried the bitterness forward into the present and created a situation that has kept families from reuniting and left an entire generation longing to go home.
