ABSTRACT

Regional literature was recently spotlighted. In connection to this point, I dealt with the result of study about old Siga(詩歌) of Namdo(南道) which refers to the area of Gwangju and Jeollanam-do. In particular I mainly covered Sijo(時調) and Gasa(歌辭) literature in the Joseon Dynasty period that centralized Namdo's old Siga. The main ideas were as follows. First, I analyzed the current state of Namdo's old Siga. In order to do this, I categorized the works of Namdo's old Siga into three groups. The three categories were as follows: the ones written about Namdo by Namdo's regional people, the ones written based on Namdo by people from other regions and the ones written about other regions except Namdo by Namdo's regional people. Second, I examined the research trends about Namdo's old Siga. I gave careful consideration to the details of how the works are excavated and introduced with respect to the period. Then I divided the research done in the light of regional literature into two different groups such as the one studied in terms of organizing the research material and the one conducted with regard to explaining regional characteristics. Based upon this, I pointed out that there was not enough explanation for regional characteristics of Namdo's old Siga for two reasons. The earlier studies are biased and there was a lack of critical mind to account for regional characteristics.
