For the possibility of a new epic poetry.
―In ON the WHEELS, the character of the three men, they I” of triple self? And in ON the BRIDGE, the character of the two men, they is also “I” of double self(double goer)?
Gueune-ok JOUH does not try to find poetic distinguished and refined words. One sees, in his work, of the vulgar expressions of the daily life instead of well forged worms from the rhetoric point of view. He appreciates the integral effect more valid than linguistic quality for creation of poetic esthetics. Thus he makes an effort, in theatrical form, to make possible a new epic poetry. Its poetic work would deserve, with any other denomination, that of surrealist epopee(or the minimalism and OuLiPo). And this epopee, coming from a man who has a deep knowledge of the human spirit, can touch us, with equal mythical and historical epopee. It thus remains us to wait to see how the new epic poetry of Gueune-ok JOUH will develop. -Jai-Yong SONG(He was educated in French language and literature at the Seoul University and a thesis dissertation at the University Paul Valéry Montpellier III.
