ABSTRACT

This paper studies Eochon Shim Eon-kwang's body of poetry in a general way. He is one of the poets who represent the 16th century in Korea's history of poetry. However, so far there has not been any study on his body of poetry. This paper examined the number of his existing chinese poems, their types, and gathered criticisms of his works in historical literature and discussed their characteristics. The result is briefed as follows. First, the number of his poems amounts to 580 and Chinese verse styles account for an overwhelming majority. In content, they are mostly aspirations he has in mind and experiences of excursions. Second, as for the characteristics of his body of poetry, its traits are magnificent, splendid, and beautiful, and its sincerity excluding embellishment and technical skills is outstanding. This paper's meaning lies in the fact that it can be used as a standard for judging the characteristics and performances of his body of poetry.
