ABSTRACT

This study focused on examining the aesthetic aspects of Eungje- Eobyong-sixty-two poems(應製御屛六十二詠) by Jebong, Go Gyong-myong. It is a collection of pictorial poetry, poetry of spiritual beings, and poetry written by the order of the king. King Myongjong showed 62 scrolls of paintings he had collected to Jebong and ordered him to write poetry about them. That is, it was a solo project executed by the order of the king. The paintings show flowers, grass, trees, insects, fish, birds, and other animals. In particular, as many of them display birds, the poetry described diverse types of birds dynamically. The following is a summary of it: First, this study examined the background and meaning of the poetry focusing on its epilogue. As a result, the characteristics and meaning of the poetry as pictural pieces were discovered. In particular, the royal family's interest in the aesthetic aspects and relationships between the king and Jebong were understood. Then, through expressive methods, the aesthetic aspects of poetry by Jebong were revealed. Through this content the descriptions of spiritual beings, nobles and solemn beauty was examined. The dynamic status, which was well-captured in the paintings, was properly detailed in the poetry. The vivid realism was well layed out in it. Therefore, the natural aestheticism in poetic expression was impressive. Finally, the parodic beauty was made vivid through innovative concepts. Jebong's poetry was not only faithful only to the paintings but he also reinterpreted the paintings through his aesthetic sense. That is, he exerted his aesthetic emotions as well as expressive power for the paintings with the addition of creative ideas. Therefore, he criticized the contemporary status of his society sharply and was aware of it through parody. In conclusion, this study explained solemnity, nature, and parody as aesthetic characteristics of Eungje-Eobyong-sixty-two poems(應製御屛六十二詠) by Jebong.
