ABSTRACT

Heo-Gyun(1569-1618) was a prominent literary man from the high class(Yangban) of Choseon Dynasty. The purpose of this study is aimed to find his human characteristics, poetic feature and literary meaning. This paper, therefore, has been to examine Heo-Gyun's characteristics in view of explaining best his life and specific features on his work in order to understand his thought and emotional freedom flowing under his complicate and unrestrained tendency of his literature. Heo-Gyun had a truly firm self-consciousness and a strong identity more than other poets at the same period and he tried to express his consciousness about emotion. Therefore he created a unique world of poetry that was difficult to compare with any other. The thought and emotion on his poems, first of all, so implied by experimental truth from his real life that they revealed more realistically. By pursuing his desire and emotion freely, he showed the feature that was filled with the sensibilities. The new perception of his private poetry expended to the degree of essential and efficiency of the literature in normal life. Consequently, Heo-Gyun's new trend as particular free thought and emotion broke the conservative system of Confucianism which made the routin life fixed strongly in the middle of Choseon Dynasty and founded a history of our modern literature.
