ABSTRACT

A ballad is a literature reflected life experience through words. It's also popular literature and national literature as a speech community in the course of conveying by word of mouth. In this ballad is Women's song. Women's song is based on the joys and sorrows of women's life of feudal days in the Joseon Dynasty. "Song of women's married life" expressed the women's sorrowful heart candidly. And it contained women's urge of expressing something internal and a rebellious spirit. In a word, it could be called the song of women's tears . This paper investigates how "Song of women's married life" represented the consciousness of women who lived the lower life than men. There are three ways for women to resist the wrong custom. The first is to overcome it, second is run away from it and the third is kill themselves. It can be said that if the mainstream of our people is sorrowful heart, it started from this women's sorrowful emotion in the long history. So Korean women's song which contained it negatively and affirmatively is a delivery room of popular literature and a valuable vessel of the Korean women's soul.
