ABSTRACT

Tao Yuanming’s Trilogy of Pseudo Self-elegy(擬挽歌辭三首, hereinafter “Trilogy”) were introduced to Joseon literati mainly through several versions of Tao Yuanming Anthology — some were published in Joseon, some were imported from China. Though it is not known exactly how Chinese versions were imported, according to the data until now, there are five versions of Tao Yuanming Anthology published in early Joseon and two in late Joseon. And there also is a manuscript by Yoo Hyong-won. In addition to it, Comments on Dongpo’s Responsive Poetry to Tao Yuanming with Fine Print and Supplemented Notes (精刊補註東坡和陶詩話, hereinafter “Comments”) had an influence on reception of Trilogy. In this article, I examined Tao Yuanming’s Trilogy in several editions in Joseon to figure out how this work was introduced to Joseon literati and how it influenced on Self-elegy writings of Joseon. As a result, I assume Self-elegy writings in late Joseon are biased due to the limits of versions distrubuted in that era. And in early Joseon, the Comments had a great influence on understanding of Tao Yuanming and Self-elegy writings. But it needs further research to understand how Joseon literati received Tao Yuanming’s Trilogy. This article mainly focused on the Trilogy, so did not fully progress discussion from the wider perspective. These problems will be complemented with further examinations on Tao Yuanming Anthology publications in Joseon Dynasty in progress.
