- In this article, I have examined the poems of Kim Young-rang(金永郞), focusing on the meaning of “pursuit of beauty”. Up to the present, the existing valuations for it were opposed to an extreme. This problem is concerned in a pair of philosophical opposition like as beauty/ethics, the subject/the object, etc. I scrutinized this dichotomy.
I kept an eye on the paradox and the power of sensation in his poems which could overcome those dichotomy. In Young-rang(永郞)"s poems, ‘the sensation’ did not cast an anchor in subjective isolation, but it was a field of vivid communication between the subject and the world and it was a ‘field of a phenomenon’ in which original powers of our life exist. And I paid attention to the structure of ‘paradox’ in which the ‘sensibility-perceptional’ meaning-element and the ‘ascendant’ meaning-element were join.
These ‘sensation’ and ‘paradox’ were the origin and structure producing the aesthetic in Kim Young-rang(金永郞)"s poems.
