ABSTRACT

In the 1940s, the poems of Baek Seok mostly treated the subject matters which he described his wandering life in Xinjing(新京, New capital) of the Great Manchu State(Manchukuo). This study referred to previous study and looked onto the poem 「There is a white wall(흰 바람벽이 있어)」 as for the aspect of the Space of Xinjing and Modernism. The first, 「There is a white wall」 also should be noted that an innocent voice is one of the way to gain the sympathy, and is related to the agonizing reality. But we have to notice that 「There is a white wall」 is completely different with another poetry written by another poets who wrote on the poverty of the wanderer in the Great Manchu State. The second, 「There is a white wall」 is a kind of Narrative poem but it is a Cene-Poem that it has a character of a ‘showing’ that a ‘telling’. This poem seemed to have been influenced by Cine-poetry. This research focuses on the Movie imaginations of Baek Seok’s poetry. The third, The fact that Baek’s romanticism does not indulge in sentimentalism and that he boldly describes the pain of reality, we can see that Baek Seok’s poetry has a substantial element of modernity in it. In the 「There is a white wall」, We can notice a Visual-Modernity. The fourth, Baek often quoted Laotzu, Confucius, Lunwen, Dubo and other Eastern classics, and such quotations usually displayed seclusive and escapist lifestyle. The secluded imaginations found in Baek’s later poems are evidence of his escapist attitude. As discussed above, Baek Seok’s poetry preserves heterogeneity of things,and pursues a harmonious, coexisting and matricentric community. This research is based on a unique foundation that modem characteristics of Baek Seok’s poetry can be verified through the way he used Visual imaginations in his work. This study is about Baek Seok’s poems which had an excellent literary achievement in the late of 1940’s.
