ABSTRACT

This study examines Shimyang that appears in ‘Nogajeyeonhengilgi’ and ‘Yeonhenghunjirok’ which are Kim Chang-eop’s Yeonheng literature. For the scholars in the Joseon Dynasty, Shimyang was not merely a physical space but a symbolic place representing barbarian Ching. It is the place that reminds Korean people of the most disgraceful humiliation and ordeals and suffering of the nation in the history of the Joseon Dynasty.. So, the image that is thought, recollected and expressed from Shimyang is the place of pent-up anger and lamentation, and it remains as a place to wipe out the disgrace.. For Kim Chang-eop, it was a special place since it was the place in which his grand-grand father Kim Sang-heon was detained for six years undergoing suffering and ordeals. Shimyang that is expressed in his poetry is the place where in earliest times Somoo pledged loyalty in the snow-covered ground chewing snow and flags, and where his grand-grand father underwent the impending crisis of death at the advanced age. In other words, it is the symbol of hardship and adversity and the place to wipe out the disgrace.. The poetry that expresses such sentiments candidly makes those who see it arouse sympathy with pent-up rage and bitter grief. On the other hand, the expression of personal emotions is controlled in Yeonhengilgi and is consistent thoroughly in detailed elaborate description or description of free and diverse experiences. The place called Shymyang which is described in this manner was simply a bustling and enlightened city of civilization. Thus, Kim Chang-eop describes different aspects of Shymyang in two literary works through his literary attainments.
