Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- Eight pieces of poems and songs created during the anti-Japanese armed struggle in praise of President Kim Il Sung have newly been discovered by the Juche Literature Institute of the Academy of Social Sciences of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

They, gathered in Jilin and Heilongjiang Provinces of China, are "Paektu, Famous Mountain", "Lionhearted General", "News of Victory", "Let's Send Them to General", "Led by General", "This Is the Only Way Out", "Melody" and "Let's Fight Bravely".

The pieces represent the noble traits of the President, a great man, comparing them with the spirit and dignified features of Mt. Paektu, and praise him, who was successfully leading the anti-Japanese armed struggle, as a lionhearted general of Korea.

They also vividly reflect public feelings at that time -- deep reverence for the President, a legendary hero of the anti-Japanese armed struggle who can liberate Korea.

They are valued as precious heritages which enrich the literary treasure of the anti-Japanese revolution.

So far the institute has discovered and ascertained several dozen pieces of poems, songs and revolutionary narratives created and disseminated among people in praise of the President in vast areas along the shore of the River Amnok and in northeast China with Mt. Paektu as the centre in the period of the anti-Japanese armed struggle.
