ABSTRACT

This paper aims at examining what the literary representation of Yeonjaru in Sunchen is. Yeonjaru is a building’s name located at the southern gate of Suncheoneup castle. It was originally founded in Koryo Dynasty and removed in 1930s, under the Japanese colonization. After that it was again restored at Jukdobong park. The subject of the main study is Yeonjaru-related poetry and Yeonjaru story sung as a core material. The discussion of the main subject is divided into three parts. First I digested the transmission situation and important contents of the Yeonjaru-related poetry in the second chapter. Continuously, I examined the formation and variation aspects of Yeonjaru story through Yeonjaru-related poetry in the third chapter. Based on this, I found out the literary representation of Yeonjaru in the fourth chapter. The summary of these contents are as follows. Yeonjaru-related poetry consists of 934 pieces of poems in total, which is mainly introduced by Sungpyeongji. It mostly describes the transience of times and the bitter feeling of parting. I used the Yeonjaru story as the central material, which is connected with the love story of governor Son Eok and kisaeng Ho Ho. So, to be noted is the formation and variation process. The writings of the writers, such as Jang Il in late Koryo Dynasty, Seo Keo-jeong in early Chosun Dynasty and Lee Soo-gwang in late Chosun Dynasty, shows such a process. Through the works of three writers, I found out the types and characteristics of Yeonjary story made on the basis of the meeting and parting between lovers. Furthermore considering the name and location, I found out the love between a man and a woman, encompassing meeting, parting and reunion, as the literary representation of Yeonjaru. These discussions mean the writers considered the Yeonjaru itself as the expressional material, not such an attitude as the cradle and background of the poetry and prose.
