ABSTRACT

Hyangga(鄕歌), a literary genre of Shilla(新羅) dynasty, is generally perceived as religious as well as lyrical. However these two characteristics of the hyangga have not been fully investigated in association with each other. Most of the studies focused on one side, that is religiosity or lyricism. This thesis aimed at studying these two features at the same time and shedding a light on the genre characteristic of the hyangga. <Changiparangga(讚耆婆郞歌)> and <Mojukgirangga(慕竹旨郞歌)> were selected as the typical examples that embody both religiosity and lyricism. They contain religious characteristics as a kind of hymn, but at the same time they possess lyrical features that are different from other kinds of hymn. This thesis named this genre feature as hymnal lyricism and studied it with relation to time. Time in <Changiparangga> and <Mojukgirangga> is different from other kinds of hymn. In other hymnal genres, poetic situations are constructed following linear time, whereas in <Changiparangga> and <Mojukgirangga>, linear time appears as problematic and is metamorphosed and reconstructed into psychological time through recollection, expectation, and symbolization. These characteristics of time are related to genre features. In harmony with linear time, other hymnal genres involve narrative or didactic genre features. In contrast, <Changiparangga> and <Mojukgirangga>, which metamorphose linear time into psychological time, embody lyrical genre features.
