ABSTRACT

This article is focues on aspects of developtment and genealogical features of Self-elegies in Chosun Dynasty. Development of self-elegy in Chosun dynasty can be devided into two aspects: one is early and middle Chosun, the other is late Chosun. From the perspective of form, the ancient form were dominet in early and middle Chosun, while Jueju and Lushi became more popular in late Chosun. And in late Chosun, we can find new forms, like one person creating two or more works of self-elegy, a son writing self-elegy after his father. Self-elegy in the form of serial poetry also appeared. Through these aspects, we can suppose, in late Chosun, more poets created and got interested in self-elegy. Some poet even used Tu Fu's works as his self-elegy, and some wrote self-elegy for the imperial examination. From the point of genealogy, self-elegy in Chosun dynasty generally represents Confucian ideas on life and death, reflecting one's own life and calmly taking one's death. And many works relate death with the matter ancestors, so Confucian moral of filial duty is highlighted.
