ABSTRACT

This study examined the basic features of Jang, gyeong-se(장경세)'s <Ganghoyeongun-ga(강호연군가)> and Lee, jung-gyeong(이중경)'s <Eobu-byeolgok(어부별곡)> and then looked into their status in six-stanza Sijo(육가형 시조) based on them. Jang, gyeong-se(장경세)'s <Ganghoyeongun-ga(강호연군가)> is a song that expresses love for the ruler, concern over the nation, respect toward Zhu Xi(주희), and opposition to Lu Jiuyuan(육구연). The work is historically important in that it reflects social conditions of the early 17th century. The first six parts of the work express the sense of loss felt by the Seoin(서인) who were denied political power and the second six parts concern over Neo-Confucianism that was withering due to the growing influence of the study of mind(심학, the Wang yang-ming school). It is more appropriate to regard Lee, jung-gyeong(이중경)'s <Eobu-byeolgok(어부별곡)> as a six-stanza Sijo(육가형 시조) rather than as a song of fisherman. His mother's death led Lee, jung-gyeong(이중경) to frankly confess his inward feelings in <Eobu-byeolgok(어부별곡)>, which shows the simple life of a person who enjoys nature without engaging in complicated matters of the world. Six-stanza Sijo(육가형 시조) can be largely divided into the following three parts: <Jangyukdang-yukga(장육당육가)> series, <Dosan-sibigok(도산십이곡)> series, and <Sok-munsanyukga(속문산육가)> series. Jang, gyeong-se(장경세)'s <Ganghoyeongun-ga(강호연군가)> and Lee, jung-gyeong(이중경)'s <Eobu-byeolgok(어부별곡)> seem to belong to <Dosan-sibigok(도산십이곡)> series and <Sok-munsanyukga(속문산육가)> series respectively.
