ABSTRACT

This study compares Self-elegy poetry of Zhang Dai(1597-1684?) and Lee Yeon-jik(1631-1698) in the thematic tradition. They lived in different time and space, Zhang in late Ming and early Qing Dynasty, Lee in late Joseon. But they share a very similar thematic consciousness, which is royalty to Ming Dynasty and hatred to Qing Dynasty. Through the comparision of two works, this study achieved the conclusion like below. First, Lee's royalty to Ming Dynasty is more obvious and constant than Zhang. The difference between the two poets represents the diffference of attitude to Ming and Qing between intellectuals of two countries. Second, Zhang's work is more indirect and allusive, while Lee's work is direct and straightforward. The reason why Lee's work is self-representative can be considered with the writing style of self-elegy of Joseon writers. The difference between Zhang and Lee still is only an individual case. But this case shows how the self-elegy in China and Korea share the same origin and developed into different writing styles by choosing different ways.
