ABSTRACT

This paper is an analysis of the nature and meaning orientation of the work of <Oryeon-ga>, which was first reported to academia in 2016. Furthermore, I want to understand the poetry literature history of this work more anew. Created by Lee Bokgil, a rural gentleman in Haenam, <Oryeon-ga> can be understood as a prototype of "A song that People love each other" as an analytical result of prior research. However, if you look at the work more closely, you can see it differently. Consisting of ten stanzas, the work has the characteristics of a poem written by Lee Bokgil to his wife, Ms. Haemi-baek. However, the characteristics of this work are more complicated. This is because the creative situation of this work is not explicitly revealed. Therefore, it is highly likely to be interpreted in a variety of ways depending on the researcher's interpretation point of view. In our study, the author, Lee Bokgil, is different from a prior study that interprets him as a poetical speaker. This work was judged by Ms. Haemi-baek as a poetical speaker. The basis for this work is the compilation of 『Jeongabibo』, the expression of emotion, and the use of words. From this point of view, this work has the poetic nature of the couple's affection, in which Ms. Haemi-baek responds to Lee Bokgil's love poem. Of course, the writer is half-way, but it is believed that the speaker was designated as Ms. Haemi-baek, so it was possible to have this poetic utility. From this point of view, the poems published in 『Jeongabibo』 have the form of a mixed genre poem, and it can be said that the history of Korean classical poetry has been opened.
