Aesthetic Information of Sijo as Translation Problem (the case of the Poem “The Fisherman’s Calendar”/어부사시사)

Cover Page


The article is devoted to the content aspect of aesthetic information representation in the text of the Korean poetic form sijo and contains the analysis of the examples of the aesthetic information reconstruction in the Russian and English translations. Particular attention is paid to the artistic image in a poetic text, the main function of which is the creation of aesthetic effect. As a central category of aesthetics and poetics and also as a potential unit of literary translation the artistic image is considered as special heterogeneous information complex (hyper-unit), which is constructed by a composite set of hypo-units. The analyzed image of an old fisherman-philosopher living in harmony with the surrounding nature and his inner world is the traditional image of Oriental culture and literature.
