ABSTRACT

‘The poetic prose of travel in Juwang mountain’(주왕산 기행가사) includes ① <Juwangsany uramgi>(1945), ② <Juwangyuramga>(1954), ③ <Juwangsanyuramganbeolgok>(1967). Their authors still remain unidentified, and work ① was written by a man and the authors of work ② & ③ were known to be women. Work ① & ③ were written in the fall and work ② were written in the spring after traveling in Juwang mountain. Considering the hiking routes expressed in three works, it is easily confirmed that doing the sights of Juwang mountain along the Jubang Valley starting from Daejeon Temple is the most common course of hiking in Juwang mountain from old times. Judging from the contents of the works, it seems that work ① was a poetic prose written focusing on traditions involved in the name of Juwang mountain, landscapes in and out of Daejeon Temple, scenic spots and word of four-season landscapes. Work ② is drawing attention for its word about Neyongchu(內龍湫), and work ③ has characterics in that it includes the contents, such as scenes of collecting Seoksam(石蔘), The First Waterfall & Fairy Bath, Guryongso(Nine Dragon Swamp) above the falls, and Dalki Mineral Water Bath. All of the three works are boosting literary beauty through the use of diverse rhetoric. Among these, the work ② is all the more noteworthy seeing that it raises its persuasiveness and enhances its literary beauty even through sensational description, such as a visual-auditory method, not to speak of the use of every sort of rhetoric. Work ① & ② assume a stable and leisurely poetic rhythm, whereas work ③ is showing the trend for a prose. The poetic proses of travel in Juwang mountain themselves has a great meaning in that they expand the domain of poetic proses of travel and also they could function as its main resources from the viewpoint of local literature. On the other hand, the poetic proses of travel is awakening us to the importance of natural ecology.
