ABSTRACT

The Education of Classical Literature at the University and the Future Prospect Chung, Byung-Heon This study is aimed for examining the present education of classical literature at the university and presenting ways to solve the problem. In many ways of examining the situation, we are focused on the view of the justifiability that classical literature should be considered as the literature itself and establishment of various ways to examine the literature. The basic concept of this study is that the undoubted essential statement -classical literature should be considered as the literature -has been missing in our education field until these days. Consequently, there is no doubt that we couldn't meet the goal to enhance imaginative power in the classical literature education field. The essential content of literature education was mostly shifted to the contemporary literature field and there has been only outward of literature education in classical literature education. Therefore, it is necessary to recover the essence of reading literature which is the consensus among readers within the approach of focusing the main subject, which is important in daily reading. In studying classical literature, it is considered as an overemphasis of studying writers and literary works. The literature is consist of a writer, literary work, the universe and reader. The literature education until now was mostly based on the understanding of the writer and the thought in literary works. It is also found in contemporary literature area, therefore the literature education was mostly for delivering outward knowledge of the literature rather than approaching the literature itself. Therefore, it is necessary to recover the fundamental principle of the literature, that is the literary work is completed with the interest of the literary work and consensus among readers.
