ABSTRACT

There is an interaction between the construction of the space and the consciousness of the other in Park Bong-u's poems. It has been thought that Park Bong-u’s consciousness of the the-post-war(6·25) was as a start point of his poems. Therefore, the discussion on his poems is related to the nationalism and the inter-Korean relations. Because of that reason, this discussion is also limited and oversimplified on his works. For now, more various study on Park's Works is necessary. In the first period, Park Bong-u was interested in the Korean war and the inter-Korean relations. The important thing was that the images of the space he got was abstracted from the image of the border area, the 38 line. He presented his emotion from the inter-Korean relations as a 'butterfly'. The image of the butterfly symbolized the deterritorialization of the thought. He thought the image of the butterfly as what is transcend the limits of the real space which is the inter-Korean relations. He replaced the tragedy of the war with a mythological space. Then, he constructed the poemric subject that he regarded as the same way of the Other. Later, many things were changed. The image of the mythological space was gone. A new image came. Image of a city that had a pitiable scene. Then he interested in a sad life of the people. But his poems seemed to lose a aesthetic tension force. His poems had a instability. Sometimes, in fact, he had a dissociation of consciousness. I think that this process of his poems is symbolized of the literature of the post-war.
