ABSTRACT

This study aims to analyse how Yang Dae-Bak showed his talent of poetry writing, how he represented what he felt in sightseeing through poetry writing, and how it has been evaluated. Yang made tours of everywhere in his country during which he saw and experienced many things. In particular, after traveling Mt. Geumgang and Mt. Jiri, he wrote proses such as 「Geumgangsankihaengrok」ㆍ「Duryusankihaengrok」 and 47 poetic works. This study targets his 30 poetic works on tour to Mt. Geumgang tour and 10 ones on tour to Mt. Jiri. His tour was intended to train himself, not to do something else. It was different from the tour of confucians who tried to find a body of moral at the time when Confucianism was ripening. Therefore, evaluation of his sightseeing tour should consider the aspect. So, when he saw beautiful landscapes during the tour, he just admired them or was just impressed rather than he interpreted it on his own. Finally, this study concluded that Yang Dae-Bak was a literary person who was innocent and pure, and was different from confucians who suggested the importance of moral philosophy.
