ABSTRACT

There are about thirty Travel Gasas about Mt. Geumgang. In the early period of the Joseon dynasty, we had only Gwandongbyeolgok and Gwandongsokbyeolgok for Travel Gasas about Mt. Geumgang, and they were short and lyrical. In the late period of the Joseon dynasty, there were a lot of long and descriptive works. While only bureaucratic literary men wrote them in the early period of Joseon, bureaucratic literary men, scholars out of office, Buddhist monks and others did so in the late period of Joseon. Then in modern literature, the group of writers expanded to include women. Long and short stories existed at the same time. In the Travel Gasas about Mt. Geumgang, Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian language was used to express the beauty of the language and they enhanced the emotion of the works and the beauty of literature. The beauty of the language in the Travel Gasas about Mt. Geumgang was realized through unique expressions such as presentation of speed and space of time, humoristic expressions, conversational statements, and insertions of Chinese poems. It was occasionally shown through realistic and lyric expressions.
