I almost accepted a teaching job in Poland, but with a few outside bills it would be really tight. I am considering going to Poland and teaching later. I'll see how the year goes, but I may just travel around eastern Europe after Korea and teach ESL. I need to see and experience a little more of the world now that I've lived in the U.S. for 18 years. The sad thing is I am going to drop off a shitload of poetry books at the Bookshop in chapel Hill because I am moving out permenantly and I can't lug around all my books.
I also just purchased a 12 inch Powerbook so I will post to the blog about once a week while I am in Korea.
I am going to choose about five books of poetry for my trip (I am going to store about two boxes of poetry books while I am gone).
I have two questions:
1) If you could pick five books of poetry to take with you for a one year stint in another country, which five?
2) Anyone know any Korean poets of the experimental kind?
