Korean Poet Suji Kwock Kim

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with poet Suji Kwock Kim about the poetry of war. Kim writes the fragmented stories of Koreans, some from her family, suffering during the conflicts of the 20th century. Kim's family emigrated to Poughkeepsie, New York, where she says she was taught a responsibility to use imagination to understand the horrors of the past.
