ABSTRACT

In this treatise, I studied the stranger-consciousness in Mok-wol Park's lyrical poems. The stranger in Mok-wol Park's lyrical poems wanders to find eternal native place. The eternal native place is a transcendental native place, namely the world of identity. We can find the universal emotions at the stranger in Mok-wol Park's lyrical poems who wanders to recover the transcendental native place. There is a strong romantic vision in Mok-wol Park's early natural lyrical poems. This strong romantic vision is related with the stranger- consciousness. In the middle of his life of a poet, he traveled to Kyungsang-do, his native place. At that time Kyungsang-do appears to him a paradise. Mol-wol Park recovered his identity, the continuity and totality of life through Kyungsang-do. In this period, he wrote many poems that are related with his mother. In his poems, mother is equal to his native place. We can find Christian stranger in his later poems. After he met his god, he felt himself a stranger or pilgrim in this hopeless world. He is walking to Heaven, essential world, homeland enduring the painful life in this corrupt world.
