ABSTRACT

Go Jung Hee started her literary career in 1970 and leaved 11 books of poetry until 1991. Recently, A variety of critical approaches have been tried for her poetry. While Go Jung Hee's poetry dominantly covers feminist approach, christian world-view, and discursion for poetic form, but there is also criticism for reality watching the pain of the people. Go Jung Hee's poetry has the love and tolerance for the weak. This paper studies 『The beautiful one person』. The poet names the poetry as the love poetry and highlights the nature of love poetry through remaking. The purpose of this work is to find the climax of poet's love from the last poetry revealing the honest inner feeling of the poet. Especially, we borrow Alain Badiou's discussion for love to understand the meaning of love for poet to tell. In her poetry, the speaker liken the feeling of love to the light and water, and shows the meaning of the only two in depth. Through the appearance that loving people look at each other and experience the world, poetry shows the love that becomes the center of the world. While these intense emotion brings the feelings of loss and sadness which is caused by the loss of love, but the speaker tries to achieve solidarity rather than retreat from love. The speaker make one to expect the value of love through the eye which is toward for the world and others at the peak of loss.
