This article concentrates on the elegy which has some problems in the process of transformation into folk song. The content of elegies are based on the context in which they are mourned after someone's death. For this reason, if the context changes, its meaning changes as well. In other words, the elegy, a part of the mental pain, can sometimes become a part of the entertainment in the process of turning into folk song. This process also includes the compilation of elegies. Hence, the argument of the article appears that the meaning of the elegy cannot be understood without taking into consideration both their context and process of compilation.
