ABSTRACT

This study investigates through his poetry what political hardships Mokeun suffered from and how he felt about the hardships during his exile period. Mokeun spent his life in exile in Jangdan, Hamchang, Kumjoo, and Yeoheung in the fall of Goryeo. In his poems that he wrote in Jangdan, Mokeun constantly spoke about how unreasonable it is that all the criticism was directing him. His poetry in Hamchang is about his reflection about his life and feeling betrayed by people who he respected. When it comes to the poetry of Kumjoo, he resigned himself to everything. In the poetry in Yeoheung, he seeked the state without any greed and desire. But, in the course of the change of his sentiment, he never forgot the loyalty toward Goryeo. What is more, he felt sorry as a servant of Goryeo for giving up the downfall of Goryeo, which is shown in his poems during the exile period.
