When not at the firm, Kim relaxes with literature. One of Minbo Kim’s favorite non-fiction books is Gods, Graves & Scholars: A Story of Archaeology by C.W. Ceram. Initially published in 1949, this groundbreaking work popularized the field of archaeology for future generations. Among the topics covered are the discoveries of the city of Troy, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Tutankhamen’s tomb, and the clay tablets that detailed the great flood discussed in the Bible. Fond of poetry, Kim also enjoys Hymns and Fragments by Friedrich Hölderlin. Translated and edited by Professor Richard Sieburth, this collection features the greatest poems by 19th century European poet Friedrich Hölderlin. Although influential to some of the most renowned figures of the period, Hölderlin fell out of favor until the late 20th century. Today, many consider him the first great modern master of European poetry whose works bridge classicism and romanticism.
