ABSTRACT

This essay is for the excavation and introduction of Si-geum-gang(시금강), an anthology of Sino-korean poetry which was written by Choi, Yeong-nyeon and published in 1926. The anthology is consisted of five parts that contain 240 pieces of poems in various forms by Choi and about 300 pieces by the other 200 poets. These poems are entirely focused on an itinerary for Mt. Geumgang. Especially it is the part 5 that characterizes the anthology as a peculiar work. The poems in it are all of meta-criticism written by poets of the whole country which takes on the character of the anthology and poems by Choi. I think that the poets not only who participated in Mt. Gumgang tour but also who contributed a poem were members of Dae-Dong-Si-dan(대동시단) which means the poetry circle of Great Korea literary, an actual poetry circle of 1920s. The fact that the society of poets really existed and they took part in literary activity as a group, calls us for the interest in Sino-korean literature in the early part of the 20th century, which is necessary for an objective description about Korean literary history.
