ABSTRACT

50 works of King Sejo's poems are recorded in Yeolseong Eoje(列聖御製) but any examination of the King Sejo's literature hasn't been performed. This study analyzed his recognition and view of poetry. King Sejo often conferred King's poems as a symbol of special blessing for the formation of close relationship with worthy retainers as well as pursue for a method to reinforce the sovereignty in the relationship with the worthy retainers. He realized that the core assignment of the ruling reason was to prevent unexpected upheaval so that he put his efforts for the military government. During the course, the Joseon Dynasty found the identity of the descendent of Dangun, a son of Heaven and had a worldview focused on Joseon to dream Ho Wolilga(胡越一家). King Sejo as a conqueror king as well as a king who likes Buddhism in order to enlighten the people concentrated on the Buddhism propagation and emphasized the Book of Changes for the purpose of enlightenment of the bureaucrats as Confucians. He acknowledged not only Buddhism but also Confucianism for enlightenment of the governing class and the ruled class.
