- This Kasa is in a manuscript in the possession of Professor Byong Uook Chung (鄭炳昱), which he first examined in detail when he was very kind1y showing me his private collection in the ear1y summer of 1962. He was most impressed with this poem. The hours which I spent wìth him were probably the most valuable experience which I have had in my studies of Korean literature, and when he suggested that I might publish the poem with comments in English, I was most eager to do so. I am ashamed that I have allowed myself to be diverted from this work for more than three years, and my main motive in submitting it now is to acknowledge publicly the debts which I owe to Professor Chung and other Korean scholars. I need hardly say that any merit in this presentation is due entirely to Professor Chung, who copied out the text legibly and added copious notes in the first place, and subsequently corrected many mistakes in and suggested many improvements on my first draft. I hope that I am at least passing on to other westerners something of what he has taught me. Where I have misunderstood or misrepresented what I have been taught, the fault is mine alone, and I should be
grateful to hear from anyone who cares to correct me on any point at all.
