ABSTRACT

Joo Yongil's poetry's orientation to nature begins with wounds and pain. Through nature, we search for ophthalmology and lyricism, and the ideal “norms and standards” of life. This paper finds a point beyond the universal interpretation of this meaning of natural representation in the proposition that'nature is like the mind'. His poetry understands that nature is the mind, accepts the necessity of nature and aims for freedom. This paper examines these natural representations and meanings that appear in Joo Yongil. Joo Yongil's poetry's was written on the road to freedom through the naturalization of life itself. Like most lyric poets nature provides the subject matter of poetry to him and sparks poetic imagination. Along with this his poems first reveal a sense of cosmic compassion for life through bonds with nature. Under the repressive conditions of the real principle, the direction of self and life was found to be the path to freedom and liberation by sensing the nature of nature, where the identity is secured. Second, the equal bond with nature and a sense of cosmic compassion for life continue in the direction of exploring the spectacle beauty and love of natural life through femininity and sensuality. At this time, the female image metaphors the place where life is born at the same time as wound and pain. This signifies a longing for the source of life, and directs the liberation of the suppressed natural nature and restoration of the source of damaged life. Third, Joo Yong-il's poetry focuses on discovering and recognizing the nature of objects and the principle of existence that appear in the various modes and attributes of the substance of nature. His poetry embodies a world of ethical aesthetics that is composed through a process of communion with nature and delicate enjoyment. In the end, Ju Yongil's poetic attitude of realizing and accepting that the mind and body are the products of causal necessity as a part of nature can ultimately be seen as toward freedom of existence. His poems seek freedom of mind while understanding everything as a part of the whole nature and recognizing the mind and body as the cause of the natural order and as a modal expression of nature.
