ABSTRACT

In Choi, Harim's poetry, enjambement can be found frequently as a technique for a structure. This technique causes the change of breathing when a syntactic segment is not in tune with segment between lines. Accordingly,it brings out the poetic value including the meaning change and ambiguity. This enjambement appears in several ways such as adding of a syntactic unit by the end of line, breaking of a syntactic unit by the end of line and run on line in his poems. The main effect of enjambement is to emphasize the independent meaning by trying to forcedly disconnect the words which are syntactically related to each other by means of adding or breaking words by the end of line which involve the theme of a poem. The functional effect of this technique is to add emphasis of meaning and rhythm. The emphasis of meaning menas repetition,amplification, paradox, ommission, suitable figure of speech and ambiguity. The rhythm is changed into 3 poetic meters and 4 poetic meters throughout a run on line for the emphasis of rhythm. With enjambement which weakens the combination of syntactic segment,a poet reinforces the meaning and emotion between lines. As breathing between lines increases, it makes a new effect as well as reiterates the meaning and emotion of a poem. Due to the syntactic segment and discontinuity of meaning, the logical connectivity of poetic words and the narrative development are disintegrated and the vivid images can only be created.
