Bruce Pulton Brings Korean Literature to the WorldBruce Pulton, who at the age of 51, is trying to translate and make Korean literature known all over the world.
He is planning to hold public readings of Korean literature with award-winning Korean writers such as Park Whan Su and Choi In Ho, in November of this year.
Pulton, who is from the United States, has translated numerous short stories and longer works written by many of Korea's contempary writers. He began by translating and publishing 'The Moving Castle' by his favorite Korean writer, Whang Sun Won, in 1985.
The difficult task of translating Korean into English is made easier by Yoon Ju Chan, his 44-year-old wife.
Pulton arrived in Seoul earlier this month to defend his doctoral thesis in the faculty of Korean Literature at Seoul National University. He returned to America on March 15.
