ABSTRACT

This paper has been considered about Jonjae(存在) Baek-gyu Wi(1727 ~1798)'s academic traditions and his social intercourse, noting the changes taking place in the bottom of the 18th century world of letters. That, as part of this working, was because Jonjae was not only the most prominent figure in the practical and realistic literary world of the day but also a significant man having established such a historical beachhead as brings about the proper understanding on the approach to literature. His thought and literature has been handed down through Jonjaejip(存在輯) & Jonjaejeonseo(存在全書) written by his descendants without being taken any notice of by the history of literature and research. And he was no more than a country man getting along without making his debut in the literary circles. His thought and literature, however, has started to get generally known to the academic world since 1960s. Voluminous more than 400 poems in over 200 volumes are printed in the Jonjaejip(存在輯) and Jonjaejeonseo(存在全書), reflecting the characteristic of contemporary literary works [poetry and prose], and showing the social changes, the social status of writer, the awareness of self-experience and the changes of sensitivity, the reconstruction of literature, and the original and empirical literary circles coinciding with a poet's reason for being. And his works in the 18th century world of letters should be evaluated as one of subjects to be examined. Especially the skepticism of the existing literary circles and the new formation caused by it in the poems he wrote live together, as is the case shown by the process of self-renovation and new grope found in the 17th century Chinese poetry.
