Anton Hur

Writer, translator

A Flight of Daedalus

When translating, you can’t put too much energy into it (you’ll burn out) or too little (you’ll be unengaged and bored).

Your energy level has to maintain a flight of Daedalus: not too high for the sun to melt the wax holding the feathers of the wings, not too low to get the wings drenched by the spray of the waves.

If you want to make it to shore, you have to maintain the right elevation to the end.

About Me

I am a writer and translator working in Seoul. I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and raised in British Hong Kong, Ethiopia, and Thailand, but mostly in Korea, where I’ve lived for thirty years. I was awarded the title of Person of Distinguished Service to the Nation after serving in the Korean Army. Repped by Jon Wood at RCW.
