Abstract [en]

The study is dedicated to the literary and cultural analysis of a number of Korean poems dealing with the image of the cuckoo and written in the 15th century in the ci genre. The "Songs of the Cuckoo" (Chagyusa) are important sources for understanding the reaction of the Korean intellectual elite to the usurpation of the throne by Sejo and their support for the overthrown ("abdicated") ruler Tanjong in the Early Choson period. In the beginning, the paper discusses the general image of the cuckoo established in Chinese and Korean literary tradition. Then follows an analysis of two poems composed by the overthrown king Tanjong on the place of his exile.
