    The Trend and Prospect of the Studies on Korean Modern Dramas and Criticisms of Korean Language & Literatur

    Kim Min-Jeong | 2013, (85) | pp.5~28 | number of Cited : 0
    This thesis was conducted to understand the current status of researches regarding Korean modern drama and criticism published in Korean Language and Literature and to suggest assignments and prospects of future research in celebration of the 50th anniversary of "The Korean Language & Literature Society". First, the 21 articles pertaining to Korean modern drama were classified into work theory, writer theory, theater theory, and drama history to be investigated. The results confirmed productive changes such as inheritance of traditional genre, influence of western pattern, acceptance of various modern media, and diversification of research methodology. Next, the 61 articles concerning Korean modern literarycriticism were divided into articles before 1990 and articles after 1990 to be evaluated. As results, encouraging changes were observed, including increased quantity of published articles every year and expansion of study subjects, strengthened recognition and diversification on literarycriticism methodology, and reinforced perceptions on modern literary history. In the future, it is expected that all the Korean modern drama and criticism studies can accomplish academic developments through the expansion of study scope as well as diversification of methodology.

    Retrospect of the History of Studies on Korean Modern Novels Wrote by Members of the Society for Korean Language & Literature

    JANG Su-Ik | 2013, (85) | pp.65~111 | number of Cited : 0
    This thesis is composed for classifying the history of studies on Korean modern novels and short stories publicated in 『Korean Language & Literature』 no.1~82. For 50 years, 1,583 pieces were publicated in 『Korean Language & Literature』 and 278 pieces of paper were on Korean modern novels and short stories. These 278 pieces were rearranged, following the publishing time of novels that each paper dealed with. In these 278 pieces of papers applied various methods for studying Korean modern novels and short stories from the time of enlightenment to 1990's ; text-linguistics, lexicology, narratology, psycho-analysis, sociology, feminism, post-structuralism, post-colonialism etc.. So the members of the Society for Korean Language & Literature have framed the semantic web of Korean modern literature finely though there are the areas not yet dealt with by the scholars. I believe that the areas will be dealt with soon or later, so the study of Korean modern literature, especially Korean modern novels and short stories, will make further progress.

    The Forms and Peculiarities of Progressive Aspect in Korean

    Koo Jong Nam | 2013, (85) | pp.113~143 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This paper has two purposes:One is to examine the differences of two Korean progressive markers ‘-go itta’(-고 있다), ‘-neun joongida’(-는 중이다), the other is to illuminate the grammaticalization of the two progressive form, and to explain the differences between the two forms by ‘-neun joongida’ construction's property triggering the sister-member situations which is due to the etymological meaning of ‘joong’(middle). The two progressive aspect forms differ in allowing time adverb, in negative sentences, and in resultative aspects etc. I discussed the grammaticalization of the two types. ‘-Go itta’ was grammaticalized by the manner schema(X stays in Y manner), and ‘-neun joongida’ was grammaticalized by the locative schema(X is at Y). The meanings of grammaticalized forms are affected by the etymology of elements of the form. ‘Joong’(middle) in the ‘-neun joongida’ construction presupposes the other parts which are not middle pragmatically. Therefore in ‘-neun joongida’ progressive form presupposes the other situations which are the sister members of it, so in ‘-neun joongida’ sentences the V1 situations functions as figure and it's sister-members function as ground. Resultantly all the differences between the two progressive forms can be explained by the facts that the later presupposes the sister-members which has time span in the whole situation as ground.

    A Study on Daejeon Toponym of ‘Joseonjijijaryo’(朝鮮地誌資料)

    Kim Jeongtae | 2013, (85) | pp.145~170 | number of Cited : 13
    One of the most representative data for modern traditional toponyms is ‘Hangukjimyeongchongram’ written in the 1970's. Most of data recorded in ‘Jiriji’ or other documents is using Chinese character toponyms with Gun and Hyeon-based or larger units, but ‘Hangukjimyeongchongram’ includes all traditional endemic toponyms transcribed for broad-scale areas. In the ‘Joseonjijijaryo’, however, contains Korean transcription for traditional toponyms with Myeon-based or smaller units approximately 60 years before ‘Hangukjimyeongchongram’. ‘Joseonjijijaryo’ (in the 1910's) is one of the oldest toponym documents transcribed in Korean, including traditional toponyms. It is very valuable data since it shows correspondences between Hangeul toponyms (Eeonmun section) and Chinese character toponyms (Jimyeong section). In this article, 639 kinds of toponyms for Hoedeok-gun, Jinjam-gun, and Hyeonnae-myeon of Gongju-gun, corresponding to Daejoen of the present, written in ‘Joseonjijijaryo’ were researched to study the transcription characteristics including s-series Hapyongbyeongseo, the use of disappeared characters such as /ㆍ/, misspelling transcription, final consonant (a supporting floor part of Korean characters structure) transcription, the inter-siot(ㅅ) transcription, the borrowing letters transcription, the transcription for reorganization of Sino-Korean word, the transcription reflecting phonological phenomenon, the length transcription, and the diphthong transcription below sibilant such as ㅅ(s),ㅈ(ʧ), and ㅊ(ʧh) as well as their meanings. Ultimately, the study for transcription characteristics of Daejeon toponym is a prerequisite for the research for toponym morpheme analysis of Dajeon toponym. In addition, ‘Joseonjijijaryo’ have some limitations. At first, traditional toponyms are not precisely transcribed. Although most of town toponyms is specifically transcribed, other toponyms are not so. Especially, valley, rock, and street toponyms cannot be found at all. This data has been also evaluated as ‘uncompleted’ in ‘You Jaeyoung’(1994:828) because some places are concretely transcribed, some places are roughly described, and some Dos (including Hamgyeong-do, Jeollabuk-do, Pyeonganbuk-do, and Gyeonggi-do) are totally omitted. Secondly, detail information of each toponym cannot be found as well. Partially, the note section(備考) describes where the toponyms suggested with assort classification(種別) are located. Therefore, only fundamental forms of toponym can be deduced if Chinese character toponyms are corresponding to Hangeul toponyms. This article suggests two proposals to resolve the limitations; Korean linguistic characteristics of modern toponym in the early 20 century should be officially confirmed through toponym data analysis based on the transcription features of ‘Joseonjijijaryo’ and the diachronic research should be carried out for traditional toponyms in the relations with toponym data such as ‘Joseonjijiaryo’ and ‘Hangukjimyeongchongram’ and modern data including ‘Daejeon Jimyeongji’(1994). Then, it can be said that the characteristics of Daejeon toponym are truly identified.

    A Study on the Integration between Listening and Other Language Skills in the Korean Language Textbooks

    Bai, A-rong , Youngjoo Kim | 2013, (85) | pp.171~195 | number of Cited : 2
    This research observed the relevance between listening and other language skills in Korean language teaching, especially analyze the relevance between post-listening activities and other activities in currently used teaching materials. Analysis result pointed out that post-listening task in currently used teaching material did not show much relevance with other teaching skills. To begin with, the teaching activities in the intermediate teaching materials varied a lot, however, in the beginning level and the advanced level materials there were much fewer. Furthermore, the teaching activities were all of single kind in general. Finally, post-listening activities were mainly related to oral practice. This study found out that Korean language textbooks did not practice language skill integration much although many post-listening activities were developed and skill integration was recommended. It also claimed that in order to achieve a more efficient integrated teaching purpose, various listening practice and relevant activities should be employed in the textbooks.

    A Study on the Corresponding between Korean Ambiguous ‘-go itda’ and Chinese ‘在’, ‘着’

    Chen, Lixia , Kim Jung Nam | 2013, (85) | pp.197~227 | number of Cited : 2
    In Korean several classes of verbs construct ambiguous sentences in the case of combining with ‘-go itda’. The two meanings of ‘-go itda’ are ‘progressive’ and ‘static’. We call the ‘-go itda’ of the former meaning ‘-go itda1’, and we name ‘-go itda’ of the latter meaning ‘-go itda2’. In this study we classified the verbs into 6 subclasses based on their meanings. The 5 subclasses are the taking & possession verbs, physical taking verbs, wearing verbs, pose verbs, opening & closing verbs. And the last subclass consists of just one verb ‘memorize’. The verbs among above 6 subclasses represent the ‘progressive’ meaning by combining with ‘-go itda1’ and reveal the ‘static’ meaning by combining with ‘-go itda2’ in Korean. Otherwise, in Chinese the verbs similar to the Korean verbs of 6 subclasses in meaning, don't produce ambiguous sentence. For in Chinese the aspectual meaning of ‘progressive’ is revealed through ‘在zai’ and that of ‘static’ is realized through ‘着zhe’. We can expect that Korean ‘-go itda1’ responds to ‘在zai’, and ‘-go itda2’ to ‘着zhe’ in Chinese. But it is not always applied to all verbs. Most of the verbs in 6 subclasses show one-to-one responding, but several verbs correspond to one of them. We call the former group of verbs A class, and the latter group B class, and divided again the B class into 2, B1 and B2. ‘-Go itda1’ which corresponds with Chinese ‘在zai’ is the B1 Class, and ‘-go itda2’ which only corresponds with Chinese ‘着zhe’ is the B2 class. ‘Memorize’ and ‘strip’ are in the B1 class, pose verbs are in the B2 class, the rests are in the A class. And we dealt with the topic of getting rid of ambiguity in the ‘-go itda’ construction.

    Developmental Aspects of the Ryomrakpung Style Shown in Dukam Na Do-Gyu's Poetry

    Park Myeong Hui | 2013, (85) | pp.255~284 | number of Cited : 2
    This study aims to speculate on aspects of Ryomrakpung presented in poetry by Na Do-Gyu, one of Honam's literary people of the 19th century, what characteristics the poetry has, and what meaning it has in the history of Chinese poetry. Volumes 1 and 2 of 『Dukam Manrok』, a collection of Na Do-Gyu's poetry, include a total of 299 poems with 234 themes, among which those of the Ryomrakpung style were selected and their characteristics and aspects were defined in the study. Na Do-Gyu's Ryomrakpung style poetry is roughly categorized into three types:poems that describe what he realized and reasoned after he read Chinese classics; those which give intentions on how to live; and those which explain morals Na Do-Gyu can see or realize and reason on through the observation of things. Poems of the first type are 「Gyong-cha-hwa-dam-seo-sunseang-dok- yeok-si」 and 「Dok-ju-yeok」. Mr. Na discussed reasons for the universe in the two poems, but they are not literary as they explain the reasons. Examples of the second type are 「Hwa-o-jung-ham-gyon-ki-gye-soo」I, 「Park-chang- soo-lee-si-gyon-you-wol-lee-il-soo-seo-gyom-lee-si-sa-ji」II (Vol. 1), 「Yayoung」, and 「Dok-seo-gak-piri-saek-chon-jo-in-ki-ing-seong-sul-sa-gyon-hoi」II (vol. 2). Through these poems, we can understand the attitude Mr, Na had at the time. He considered the basic nature given to humans as important and suggested that the purpose of studying is to recover our nature. Also he emphasized that humans are compelled to follow the circulatory order given by heaven, and had an attitude to accept the destiny given to himself while being satisfied and pleased with it. Examples of the third type are 「Gan- hwa-eum」, 「Gangheung」 (Vol. 1 of the collection), 「Gwanmul」, and 「Jeung- im-ki-seo-suk-gyu」I (Vol. 2 of the collection). These are certainly representative of his style. Here the author emphasized the circulatory principle of nature through natural things and that natural things have an innate natures. Such thoughts were derived from his attitude to view things in terms of things instead of in terms of humans. That is, it is suggested that he did not inject subjective ideas into natural things. The conclusion is that Na Do-Gyu's Ryomrakpung style poetry is not different from Ryomrakpung style poetry created since the late Goryo Period, and it inherited the trend of poetry continuing the development of Confucianism in the Joseon Period.

    The Life thought of ‘A Black Mountain’ in the Poems of Kim, Ji-ha -Focused on A Black Mountain and a White Room-

    Seoksoon Kweon | 2013, (85) | pp.339~361 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Kim Ji-ha's collection of poems titled A Black mountain and a White room 1- Part 2 ‘A Black mountain-in the Mooreung Valley’ sets a scene in Mt. Doo-ta, Donghae Si, Gangwon-Do. 13 poems in the collection are significant in the sense that Kim Ji-ha first captured the literary space after leaving prison in December, 1980, and they were not adjusted, touched and polished off by his dictation. Kim Ji-ha who was a symbol of a fighter for democracy, and experienced existent extremes of ‘passing’ and ‘killing’ approaches the history of horrible pains and passing in the Mooreung Valley, Mt. Doo-ta through an anarchic viewpoint of the sense of Nihil and resistance in the Part 2. Facing the crippled history offetters, Kim Ji-ha showed the aspect of the will to overcome them and pledge, for he wrote poems with not an idea of Mt. Doo-ta but its vitality. For Kim Ji-ha, the history of killing is only not to move away from the human world. The poet’s will that he can be born again as a real being emerges as a poetic diction of ‘water’ in the end of many poems. ‘Water’ represents the life thought that has to experience when the blood history in the Mooreung Valley, Mt. Doo-ta is converted into a new being. Thus, ‘water’ is a manifestation of vitality that Kim Ji-ha aims. The present being for returning to the life represents the life thought that has to experience when the blood history in the Mooreung Valley, Mt. Doo-ta is converted into a new being. Kim Ji-ha condenses a solution to the sad history of Mt. Doo-taand further of Korea as ‘the wave of life.’ This is in direct contact with his opinion that a confrontation between killing and saving is the life movement. He who desires a freedom of transcendental world meditates the meaning of life through ‘Black mountain’ after experiencing death. This life thought is to care about the life of the community beyond looking after oneself. As people are a living being, life has a wish, and they experience the polishing of life for the wish. In short, Kim Ji-ha's collection of poems titled A Black mountain and a White room 1- Part 2 ‘A Black mountain-in the Mooreung Valley’ that sets a scene in Mt. Doo-ta is significant in the sense that they reflect the poet’s trace of suppressed life, and Mt. Doo-ta is a captured space in atime of tribulation of our generation. Moreover, Kim Ji-ha's poems about Mt. Doo-ta are important, because they are in direct contact withthe life movement that he has consistently pursued.

    A Study of Mental Levels of Park, Myung-Yong's Poetry

    이은봉 | 2013, (85) | pp.363~393 | number of Cited : 0
    The poetic world of Park, Myung-Yong is based upon the 4 mental levels. The first level is ‘the labyrinth or finding a way in the foggy area’, which is derived from the fact that he regards everyday reality as an unexplainable and obscure consciousness. His way of recognizing the reality as a confusion and the unknowable means that the reality itself is so for him. But he never gives up and tries continuously to find the truth. The second level is ‘the semiotic network of nature or things’. The nature and things of his poems draw our attention as they are almost always with the Oriental spirit which is based on the world-view of personification. The most significant thing among the things in his poems is the ‘river’. The river in his poems works even as a logic to recognize the truth or the wisdom. The third level is ‘the world of small and trivial things’. They mean the alienated and deserted things which include not only the natural world or things. They also embrace our lives in general and the psychological presence of the poet himself. In his poetry, he perceives the order and the principles of life through interest and sympathy in them. The fourth level is ‘the great freedom or the will to transcendence’ where he hopes to reach by way of reflection on which his sentimental peculiarity is based on. The fourth level presupposes the overcoming of the death, that is, the practice of life and love.

His literature in terms of the historical, ideological, and aesthetic appreciation of different perspectives. One of the conditions of work Whatsoever good diversity of interpretation. The diversity of interpretations is established from an emphasis on the actual role of the reader rather than the writer and the text. Literary works will be accommodated by the actual readers of the living environment, tastes, and generations. What about, for example, did not under Japanese rule, the historical experience of young readers? And his literary ethnic discourse, or discourse level resistance to only listen, they do not want. Fortunately, his major works that are not tied to the historical reality, viewing is possible. His works are closely linked in terms of intertextuality castle, as the possibility of multiple interpretations. His major work, such as “Dusk”, "Wilderness", “Green grapes”, “Mountaintop”, “Flower” have the layered meanings. This paper from the perspective of ‘Homo Aestheticus’, his work will be appreciated. His work is to keep the common pursuit of the aesthetic world of the self-consciousness of the artist. These characters are related to the fact that the reality of his experience was never beautiful. So reading his literary aesthetic reading and historically it is not exclusive. On the other hand, in order to secure his literary diversity must be accommodated in the literature with more scalability works. His literary work more actively to the movies, dramas, musicals, etc., should be transformed. In addition, you also need to have a lot of interest in his literary dimensions of the local culture.

    A Study of the Author's Consciousness in Chang-Sup Sohn's Novel Kil ‘Road’

    YeYul Choi | 2013, (85) | pp.423~450 | number of Cited : 0
    This paper aims to analyze the aspects of psychological variables reflected from the author's biographical effects and the changing process of the author's consciousness in the literary work. The results of the analysis of the author's consciousness are as follows:The aspects of the author's consciousness are classified into two types. The first one is the aspect of conflict with which the protagonist Sung-Chil is faced when he embarked on his new life in Seoul after he left his hometown. This conflict starts from his success he was planning to achieve when he left his hometown. Such a success is expected to be achieved after he made a huge amount of money. To achieve a goal, Sung-Chil did many things as an employee of Jin-Sung Inn and Ja-Sung Mechanics, as a shoe-shining boy, or as a loan broker. Such a hardship and maladaptation result from his poor preparedness for his life. Second, while in Seoul, his sense of value conflicts with his previous one of value. At the same time, a kind of mammonism, that is, he is too attached to money, can be found. The conflict of the sense of value which Sung-Chil undergoes is rooted not only in his cultural behavior of Confusianism, but also in the gap between the traditional value and the value of modern capitalism. Sung-Chil's money-oriented behavior is attributed to the trend of the times when he lives:rapid development of economy, transition to industrialism, expansion of urban culture, change of the social structure, etc.
