This book analyzes the original text ‘Yong-Pi-E-Chen-Ka (龍飛御天歌)’,
which is the first literature written in Middle Korean, together with the
contemporary Korean equivalent for it. In 1445, Jae Kwen, In-Ci Ceng, and
Jae An printed the Yong-Pi-E-Chen-Ka under King Sejong’s order. The
Yong-Pi-E-Chen-Ka is an epic poetry that eulogizes the virtues of ancestors
of the founder of the Joseon Dynasty.
This book gives the most important research material for studies of the
first stage of the Middle Korean language.
