ABSTRACT

This study examined the representation of practical ideas in the poetry written by Maecheon Hwang Hyeon. First, he revealed his loneliness in his poetry. He thought that the impoverishment of rural areas was caused by corruption by public officers and a contradictory policy. Therefore, he wrote real and critical poetry, speaking of the predicament and resentment of farmers. Secondly, he criticized the dependency on foreign forces. Maechon specifically described a society that was changing through his poems, and used irony to warn of the unknown dangers we faced. Finally, he represented sublime justice in his poetry. He identified the time he wrote sharply through looking at himself and his surroundings. His <Jeol-myeong-si>, which expressed the practical mind of the intellectual, was well matched with his way of living, sacrificing himself to preserve his integrity. Based on the above study, it was found that his speech and actions were consistent throughout his poetry, in which his life, thoughts and literary mind were brought together.
