ABSTRACT

Gosan YunSundo(尹善道, 1587-1671) is a well-known seventeenth century writer in the history of Korean literature. The style and characteristics of his literature have been revealed by previous books and articles. However, it is difficult to say that we understandevery aspects of his literature because his some works have not been released. In this article, I will focus on his unreleased works from a bibliographic view. Nokudang(綠雨堂), the head family of Haenam(海南) Yun(尹) clan, has several poetical manuscripts whose title is Sagosi(私稿詩). Sagosi consists of 84 volumes with 393 poems in 285 chapters.Sagosi includes approximately 50 more Chinese poems in whichGosan-Yugodoes not have. Therefore, these50 Chinese poemscontribute to understanding the characteristics of YunSundo’s literature. There are not only about 20 verses(元韻), moreover, but also poems with self-annotation of his writingsandthe exact dateswhen they were writtenin Sagosi. We canget useful information from thesepoems to makea chronological list of Gosan’sliterature. Gosan was a writer who mainly worked in seventeenth century, but he wrote many poemssucceeding traditional Eastern poetic literature(東詩, Dong-Si). According to Gosan’s materials, we could say that he was not only a representative poet during theseventeenth century, but also one of the eminent poets of Eastern poems in Korean history. Interestingly, Gosan-Yugo has 8 Eastern poems. We can classify these 8 poemsinto four different categories. First, they are the works about filial piety in history. Second, they are about an old story in Hangzhou(杭州) province in China. Third, they are describing classical scholars who were poor but honest and poetical. Forth, they arereflectingthe poet’s lyrical mind. Besides, there are still Gosan’s 100 poems including Mosu-Cheonhabi(貌瘦天下肥) in Sagosi. Counting these Chinese poems(Han-Si), the total of Gosan’s Chinese poems(Han-Si)would increase from 360 to around 500.
