ABSTRACT

Sin Jaehyo(1812~1884) is famous as the writer of Chun-hyang-ga, Sim-cheong-ga, Bak-ta-ryeong, To-byeol-ga, Jeok-byeok-ga and Byeon-gang-soe-ga. Sin Jaehyo was also a teacher of Gwan-dae(a feat singer) and wrote Gwang-dae-ga(The Song of the feat Singers). In the poem he clarified the four important matters for Gwang-dae`s successful achievement. They are bodily beauty, talent of speaking, attainment of sound and managerial talent. In Gwang-dae-ga, Sin Jaehyo also introduced the singers of top feat at his time, compared them to the great poets of Tang Sung and expressed his pride as a Gwang-dae. Sin Jaehyo was the synthesizer of the classic Korean literary criticism and the founding father of a model of modern criticism. When we contemplate a work of art, we project ourselves into the work of art and our feelings are determined by what we find there, by the dimensions we occupy. As a writer and the teacher of actors Sin Jaehyo took aim at people`s feelings and sympathy. Kim Deuksin(1604 ~1684) established an appreciative criticism and believed the unity of poetry. Kim Manjung(1637~1692) discriminated the novel from the history by their functions. Sin Jaehyo not only synthesized the critical views of Kim Deuksin and of Kim Manjung but also popularized the Korean literary works on full scale. His critical thoughts are summarized in Gwang-dae-ga.
