ABSTRACT

In King Sookjong’s period, Namin(南人) Gwan-gak literati developed their own unique writing style while succeeding the antiquarianism and literary attempts of writers from the previous period. Thus, there is no precedent for the high interest in literature, style, and investigation seen in this period. Gwon-yu represents the Geungi Namin Gwan-gak literati in the Reign of King Sukjong. He exemplifies a different aesthetic of writing. His work has been intensifying the esotericism, such as his efforts of phrasing and quoting from the classics. In case of the writing of Jeonjangryu (傳狀類) and Epitaph (碑誌類) that record the life of the character, he showed the difference with the Noron(老論) writers by choosing to show a character’s life as it was rather than actively evaluating the character. The writing method of Gwon-yu can be evaluated as focusing on the life of the character rather than conveying his subjectivity to the reader. Of course, whether or not the esotericism and narrativity diagnosed in Gwon-yu’s literature can be applied to the general Namin Gwan-gak literati sould be discussed in parallel with the analysis of the works of Namin Gwan-gak literati. Of course, whether or not the esotericism and narrativity diagnosed in Gwon-yu’s literature can be applied to the general Namin Gwan-gak literati should be discussed in parallel with the analysis of the works of Namin Gwan-gak literati. Nevertheless, it seems clear that the differences in the writing of the Noron writers such as Lee Gwanmyeong, Song Siyeol etc. overlapped with the difference between Tang-Song and Qin-Han Writings that exemplified the ideal model of Literature of each party. Gwon-yu’s literature can be understood as a result of an extreme pursuit of the demands and tastes of the contemporaries of Namin, rather than a reflection of a unique individuality.
