His poem, “Azaleas”(1925) has been known as a masterpiece which Korean people love most to recite as “To Cassandra” of Pierre de Ronsard in France. Nevertheless, this poem has been taken for the highest expression of the traditional sentiment without being appreciated for the quality of the modern poetry as follows: Koreans have sung for a long time the sorrow from the parting with the lover. In “Azaleas”, any reader can see easily the repeat of the same situation and same feeling. </span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US">In this article I analyzed the attitude and the intention of the speaker of this poem and reinterpret the theme of poem. In doing so, I found the clever strategy of the speaker in front of the irreversible situation to press secretly the reflection of the lover about his departure. This strategy is the invention of the modern [wo]man which can appropriate the crisis. So, I defined the modern characteristic of this poem and proved that this poem is not a repeated expression of the traditional feeling of the Koreans, but the de/re-construction of that.</span></p> Myeong Kyo JEONG Copyright (c) 2020 Myeong Kyo JEONG 2019-11-12 2019-11-12 5 7 20 10.14746/kr.2019.05.01 KIM EOK’S TRANSLATION AND HAN YONG-UN’S THE LOVER’S SILENCE – THE INTERIORITY IN THE 1920s’ LITERATURE <p>The article tries to examine and define the inner self of literature in&nbsp;the 1920s, now considered the birth of modern Korean literature. The interiority of 1920’s literature is widely accepted as the transition period between the birth (the&nbsp;1910s, the Enlightenment) and maturation (1930s, Modernism), and&nbsp;as&nbsp;a&nbsp;reflection of the tragic situation after 1919. However, in the light of&nbsp;the&nbsp;symptom that determines the structure of desire, the inner self of 1920’s literature could be&nbsp;identified as a “person who denies loss”, a pervasive attitude. And it also could provide a critical reading along with some directivity, which is&nbsp;meaningful to concepts such as self-relation and the other relations that construct the individual. This paper examines this perspective of inner self within 1920’s literature of&nbsp;Kim Eok and Han Yong-un, so as to set an intrinsic standard that would enable scholars to evaluate the literary value of the 1920’s. Above all, through the Symptomatic Identification approach, this study will conduct archeological and genealogical research that could be helpful to today’s discourse.</p> Soon-Mo YANG Copyright (c) 2019 Soon-Mo Yang 2019-12-04 2019-12-04 5 21 35 10.14746/kr.2019.05.02 EAST ASIA, THE RESTORATION OF MEMORIES AND NARRATIVE OF RETURN <p>In the early 2000s, Hwang Seok-young published three full-length novels. They were <em>The Old Garden</em> (2000), <em>The Guest </em>(2001) and <em>Sim-Cheong</em> (2003). The return trilogy attracted much attention in that they were works that informed Hwang Seok-yeong’s return to the Korean literary world. He visited North Korea in 1989 and exiled in Germany until 1993. He was imprisoned shortly after returning home in 1993 and imprisoned until 1998. Conflict and anguish due to his personal history overlap in the three works. It was the thematic focus of ‘return’. ‘Return’ is not simply returning. Above all, it is an encounter with ‘self-absence’ and is the most positive return to think of ‘today’. Furthermore, the final goal is to reconcile with the present. Therefore, the three long-time narratives he published were Hwang Seok-young’s return process as a writer.</p> Suyun RYU Copyright (c) 2019 Suyun Ryu 2019-11-12 2019-11-12 5 37 56 10.14746/kr.2019.05.03 WHAT IS AN ORAL HEROIC EPIC POETRY? – OVERCOMING THE LIMIT OF THE ILIAD <p>The ancient Greek epic <em>Iliad</em>, including the oral epic and the written epic, has enjoyed a solid status as a ‘heroic epic’ (or ‘narrative poetry’) of European literature. But if a reader takes look at the general aspects of the heroic epic of oral tradition, it turns out that <em>Iliad</em> is not a typical work of a typical epic, but rather an individual one. Because the birth, trials, performance, and ending of a hero’s life are divided relatively evenly, and the general pattern of transferring the hero’s life to the heroic epic of oral tradition can be found in such cases as <em>Manas</em>, <em>Jangar</em>, <em>Gesa</em>r and <em>Mwindo</em>.</p> Jong-Seong PARK Copyright (c) 2019 Jongseong Park 2020-02-28 2020-02-28 5 57 65 10.14746/kr.2019.05.04 COEXISTENCE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC AND GUGAK IN KOREAN CULTURE <p>Classical music and Korean traditional music ‘Gugak’ in Korean culture try various ways such as creating new music and culture through mutual interchange and fusion for coexistence. The purpose of this study is to investigate the present status of Classical music in Korea that has not been 200 years old during the flowering period and the Japanese colonial period, and the classification of Korean traditional music and musical instruments, and to examine the preservation and succession of traditional Gugak, new Korean traditional music and fusion Korean traditional music. Finally, it is exemplified that Gugak and Classical music can converge and coexist in various collaborations based on the institutional help of the nation. In conclusion, Classical music and Korean traditional music try to create synergy between them in Korean culture by making various efforts such as new attempts and conservation.</p> So Hyun PARK Copyright (c) 2019 So Hyun Park 2020-02-28 2020-02-28 5 67 99 10.14746/kr.2019.05.05 LIST OF REVIEWERS . .
