ABSTRACT

Park Yong‐rae is a poet bleaching the rural community in Korea and its warmth with the Korean emotion and restrained beauty. The reason why his individual poems did not lose lights today although he used nature friendly poetic subjects with the background of rural community is partially because of new techniques that the frame of formative experiment shows. In this article, his poems were approached with two keywords such as ‘women’ and ‘consciousness of death’. In his internal consciousness in the middle of which the humble life of rural village is placed, the aspects of ‘women’ and ‘death’ interact with the style of poems and based on it the aspects of poetic pursuit going for self‐destruction and death consciousness are explored. Through this, it was tried to propose a methodology to explore social reality perception of poems by Park Yong‐rae which introduced new aspects to Korea lyrics without falling into sorrow. His poems show visual formative beauty highlighting vivid images through shape experiments. He does not limit his poems as formative experiments as a simple modernist but uses them as symbols showing ‘women‐orientation’ and ‘death consciousness’. Poetic techniques and women orientationness were analyzed relating with the death consciousness of Park Yong‐rae missed in conventional studies. It was tried to understand the aspects of ‘women’ and ‘death’ as spatial structure of spatial structure of affection and resentment and women orientation, as shape experiment and death consciousness, and as self‐extinction and transcendence oriented death consciousness.
