ABSTRACT

A collected poems of Sachun consists of Sachunjang Palkyungdo(斜川庄八景圖), and many poetry whcich describe the Leekyungum's Sachunjang in Yangun. This thesis traced how Sachunjang became a noted place and outlined the culture of a country house in late Joseon. Lee started to manage Sachunjang in 1613 earlier than the commonly known time. The background of the management was first; the political disorder in Prince GwangHae's reign. Many politician retired and managed the country house. Many noble man cultivated the farm near the family tomb during the recovery from the war. Lee's Sachunjang was the one of largest farm near the family tomb in Gyeongi area. Second was economical income. Sachunjang was a manor which had large farm. One of Eight scenes showed the scale of the farm. Besides the political and economical reason, Leekyungum formulated the management of the farmstead thorough the cultural devices. First, he arranged the scenery near Sachun as Eight scenes. He made Leeshinhum paint Sachunjang Palkyungdo. Second, he meaned Sachun as a Doyeonmyeong's Kuykurea(歸去來). Because the name of Sachun could be linked with Doyeonmyeong's poetry, Yusachun. Third, he wrote Yusachun on the Sachunjang Palkyungdo and sent it to many scholars to receive the responding poetry. These process of making notable place shows the character of the newly build villa and manor in late Joseon. Also Leekyungum made Sachunjang as a place of the academic and cultural interchange. He invited many friends and held a poetry party. He collected ten thousand books and supported scientific research. Along the South Han river, there are Leesig(李植)'s Tagpungdang(澤風堂), Shinyigseong(申翊聖)'s Donghoi(東淮), and Kimsangheon's Seogsil(石室). Leekyungum's Sachun was the model of the manor of neighboring capital city.
