ABSTRACT

This paper examined the endemism of Gwandong embodied in the Chinese poems of Eochon Shim Eon-Gwang. Eochon is one of the poets who represent the first half of the 16th century in the history of Korean literature. In the poems of Eochon that sang the nature of Gwandong, the emotions triggered by the geographical characteristics of the rural areas and the natural objects are embodied through the mediation by the endemism. In the poems that sang the life of the Gwandong people, the elements that constitute the works for living and the joys and sorrows of life are also embodied through the mediation by the endemism. Endemism is the key to the formation of local identity in that it characterizes the natural environments and living conditions of the relevant area. Therefore, we can deepen our understanding of the emotions based on the local natural environment, the placeness as a place of life, and the cultural characteristics of the area by exploring the endemism embodied in literary works.
