ABSTRACT

Both Literature and Education are in crisis. A fundamental solution to this problem is possible only by asking fundamental questions like "why do we teach literature?" or why do we educate?" The right answer to this questions is "happiness." The most fundamental element for happiness is a healthy 'self.' Travel gasa is made up of 'travel' as its contents and 'gasa' as its form. 'Travel' means a breakaway from daily life, but at the same time, it means meeting new things and people. Therefore, travel helps us find a new self and develop a healthy self. Gasa allows a sophisticated expression of our language. Also, with its matching antitheses, it enlivens our traditional rhythm. Those who study gasa are able to develop a healthy self and experience the beauty of our language in the process of writing travel gasa. This kind of writing experience helps us understand better other works of writing and also sympathize with the psychological conflicts of other writers.
