ABSTRACT

<Gobanwonga> is Nujeong-eunilgasa, which was recently discovered. It was created based on the background of Gobanwon of Sapyeongchon which belonged to Mt. Mudeungsan of Honam in the 16th century. Based on this <Gobanwonga> as the target, this research reviewed the position of it in Gasa literature. Major content of discussion is as follows. This research firstly viewed the basic points of the writer and the work briefly by considering <Gobanwonga> has recently been opened to the world, firstly. The writer Nam Eon-gi was from Hanyang, who was closely related to Honam in the process of growth and studying. Also, he established <Gobanwon> by settling down in Sapyeongchon after his mid 30s, where his wife's parents lived, then created <Gobanwonga>. <Gobanwonga> is Nujeong-eunilgasa which narrated leisurely life of the owner of Gobanwon and beauty of Gobanwon landscape. Therefore, this research paid attention to the characteristic of <Gobanwonga>, above all, as Nujeong-eunilgasa. Particularly, mainly explained the relation between Song Sun's <Myeonangjeongga> and Jeong Cheol's <Seongsanbyeolgok>, which had the same background, by giving attention to the period and regional background of Mt. Mudeungsan of Honam in the 16th century. Also, this research considered mainly with the relation between the writer and Eunilja in the work, composition of work content, characteristic of the writer and attitude to present realization. In the process, this research revealed that <Gobanwonga> had identity on its own way, while it continued particularly the context of <Myeonangjeongga>. Also, this research investigated the relation between Nujeong-eunilgasa and <Gobanwonga> since the 17th century. Nujeong-eunilgasa of the 17th century also was created on the basis of the tradition established in the 16th century. However, since the 17th century, character of Nujeong-eunilgasa was transformed to a song of leisurely life in the country rather than Eunil, there was almost no work creation thereof in the 18th century. That was the result that the period sensitivity, Eunil, conceived in the easeless political reality of the 16th century did not gain the sympathy any more. In this stream, <Gobanwonga> was a work that showed a clue for the change in 17th century in advance.
