ABSTRACT

There are many types of women images created in the Fu of Qu Yuan ,in which the image of ‘the beauty’ is the most representative one.This image can be traced back to the ‘the book of songs’,in which it referred to person in real life.Qu Yuan was the first one who consciously compared‘the beauty’ to the good politics and capable and moral monarch in the Chinese poetry history, for which he suffered many setbacks,however,his spirit was highly admired by people.The image of ‘the beauty’ has a profound impact on the literature in later times and at home and abroad, and become the literature model imitated and learned by writers in all ages. When the works of Qu Yuan entered into the Korean literary circles with ‘the selection of literary works’, the political environment in Korea was similar to the Chu country. The writers and celebrities in Korea had to look for some mental consolation under this unrest and corrupt social environment.Qu Yuan’s loyalty and patriotic to his country in his works was highly respected. His personality reflected in his choice of death and his pursuit of good relationship between the monarch and his ministers deeply influenced the Korean writers in all ages. They wrote lots of poems which imitated or paid respect to the works of Qu Yuan. Lots of works used ‘the beauty’ image as their content during the Korea and North Korea periods, which greatly promoted the development of Korean Chinese literature and poetry.
