ABSTRACT

This study examines expression of local emotion centering on poetic works by Maechon Hwang Hyeon and poets in Gurye that show regional peculiarity of Gurye. We can identify peculiar emotion and realistic aesthetics of each region through the poetry that highlights locality. In addition, we can illuminate dynamic and realistic aesthetics through the poetry. Yeongok Temple, Yongho Pavilion and Mt. Obong are representative places with history and elegant tastes of Gurye people. First, poetry on Yeongok Temple expresses righteous emotion. Historical traumas in the temple with beautiful landscapes led Gurye people to have righteous spirit and brave mind. The poetry describes such reflection handed down to descendants as powerful mental heritage as time lapses. Second, the poetry on Yongho Pavilion shows sad feeling. It expresses grief of the migrants. It indicates sorrow of the people who lost their nation beyond sorrow of personal separation. Third, the poetry on Mt. Obong highlights romantism. It shows romantic senses through mysterious appearance of the mountain. It was designed to soothe present difficulties with elegant tastes and art and music. And it was to overcome present impasse and gain power to open tomorrow. Thus, Hwang Maechon and poets in Gurye longed for local history and elegance and described true and honest feeling, on which they expressed their peculiar emotion. It is righteous and romantic description of Gurye people's emotion.
