ABSTRACT

This paper selected, and drew an overall picture of, works of merrymaking game of poetry from Ungoksisa (i.e., Historical Poetry by Ungok), and analyzed them, focusing on the 28 poems written for Heojungwon. These poems take the unique form of playful literary works, which need to be paid careful attention in the history of Sino-Korean poetry. In Chapter 2, cases of merrymaking game of poetry that can be summarized from Ungoksisa were organized and their general characteristics were explained. In Chapter 3, the 28 poems written for Heojungwon became a focus of analysis, which showed that these poems have important significance in terms of the history of poetry. These poems are one of the interesting achievements of the 14th century Sino-Korean poetry and in particular can be evaluated as a unique and experimental work of poetry in the history of playful Sino-Korean poetry. Merrymaking game of poetry originated from an intention to take the pleasure of composing poems. But it can also be a window into understanding the culture of enjoying poetry. In this context, the works of Won Cheonseok can be said to be important that explain the cultural function of Sino-Korean poetry of the late Koryo period.
