ABSTRACT

This paper studied the phases of the times and poetic consciousness in Joseon in the middle of the 19th century projected on the poetic works of Kim Byeong-Yeon, who has been commonly called Kim Sat-gat. The reason why his poetic works have been buzzed-about is, among others, that he destroyed the form of Sino-Korean poetry that regards forms and norms important. In addition, he combined contents involving satire and humor with such exceptional forms to create an inventive world. Kim Sat-gat’s inventive poetic world stands out in that his poems sang joys and sorrows in people's lives at that time, the irrationality of feudal authoritarianism, the destruction of common ideas or value consciousness, and wills that long for new times. His poetic works are realistic and truthful. By freely expressing what he thought and felt through exceptional ideas and acts of writing poems, he pursued liberation from conventional poetic emotions. This poetic consciousness can be said to be a result corresponding to the historical movement at that time to get out of medieval thinking ways and value consciousness.
