- The objective of this study is to elucidate the new aspects and dynamics of the creationmethods of the Korean modernist poetry in the 1960s. The modernist poets in this period explicitly acknowledged that their attitudes to objects played a important role in their composition of poems. In relation to this, I especially focus on poet's attitudes to objects.
In this study, I scrutinize poems composed by such poets as Kim Choon-soo, Moon Duk-soo, Kim Soo-young and etc.. focusing on their attitudes to objects. From this point of view, there were two types of poets' attitudes to objects in modernist poetry in the 1960s. One was the abstraction of objects, and the other was the concretization of objects. Poets such as Kim Choon-soo, Moon Duk-soo abstracted objects in lingual or geometrical dimension. Though it placed the limits on the concrete and real life, abstraction was the most important method of composing poems. In comparison to this, Kim Soo-young and Song Oak's poems concretized objects in the context of real life. To them, concretization of objects in the context of real life was the true method by which they could attain poetic modernity. Their poems, thus, showed the possibility of 'avant-garde'.
In conclusion, although it had its limits to a certain extent by dividingpoets' attitudes to objects into 'abstraction' and 'concretization', the modernist poetry in the 1960s made great contributions to the creation methods of the Korean contemporary poetry. Based on this excellent results in the creationmethods of the Korean modernist poetry in the1960's. the Korean modernist poets could pay more attention to the importance of creationmethod in composing poems since then.
