ABSTRACT

It has been mostly agreed that Kim, Chun-Su's early poems are the pre-stage of so-called “senseles poems" or the variations of existentialist poems. But this thesis is focused on the early days of Kim's poems from another point of view that those days of his poems are characteristic of the dualism which is the original world is separated from the real world. This dualistic point of view is incited by the notion of the infinite equivalent of the eternity and the beautiful, and the notion of the dailiness equivalent of the temporality and the unbeautiful. The recognition of the contradiction and the discord is the aesthetic tension of Kim's early poems destined to lead to the solitude. But this is the critical point that he progresses to the stage of the reflective self-consciousness and through this point he comes to understand the other. The meeting of the subject and the other is the momentous point of his poems because this happens through the activity and the passivity. And this meeting is true meeting as the personal subject not as the object or the matter.
