    Narrative Perspective and Ideological Prejudice of <So Hyunseong Rok>

    Ilyong Park | 2006, 0(14) | pp.5~39 | number of Cited : 27
    Abstract PDF
    <So Hyunseong Rok> had been written popularly, so we can hardly read the idea which writter intended. Because the writter wrote it correspond to the request of the reader. So some researcher had misunderstood these problems. And there had been opposite opinions about the theme of <So Hyunseong Rok>. Some researcher asserted that its theme has related with patriarchal ideology, and another researcher asserted that its theme related with feminism. But in <So Hyunseong Rok> the writer narrate the story correspond to the consciousness of Mrs. So who is the mother of the hero So Kyung. And As She is a widow, she hope his son to recover his familial honors, and to do familial piety ideally. So in <So Hyunseong Rok> the character of hero became typical. He leads an ideal ascetic life. And he has ideal capability. And he solve the problems between his wives successfully. So it seems the writter to propagate the patriarchal system, but in fact his perspective is correspond to female readers hope.

    Discourses in the studies of the heroic novel: controversy and prejudice

    Choi, Gang-mi | 2006, 0(14) | pp.41~70 | number of Cited : 19
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to survey the existing studies about heroic novel which had been constituted the center of 18 and 19 centuries novel. And also the purpose of this study is to show the prejudice of the studies of the heroic novel which is focused on the discourse about the works rather than the work itself. Especially the object which I tried to handle is the argumental discourses about the identity, category, sub-type, and narrative structure of the heroic novel. The prejudice of the existing studies, I think, is above all the idea that the character of heroic novel is typical, so they can see easily 'the whole' from 'the part', or it can be divided into several sub-types because it was produced in a large quantities. Without concrete investigation about the whole volume of the heroic novel works, the studies have been observed only some famous works, so they missed the extension of the heroic novel which conversed with neighboring novel like family novel, domestic novel, or pansori novel. They interpreted narrative pattern as one of the diverse variants of biographical pattern of the heroic novel, and discuss only some works of the major heroic novels. But now, I think, we must readjust the category and objects in a broad prospective and have more interests on the inductive study about the individual works or a minor of sub-types. And we need to establish more diverse narrative structure models rather than only one master plot. I think it is the time that we need the studies which advance step by step rather than doing 'comprehensively' or 'all at once', being free from the prejudice produced by the attachment to the typical heroic novel.

    Discourse of Sexual Matters, Doxa and Paradoxa in Folktales

    Oh, Se-jeong | 2006, 0(14) | pp.71~102 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This thesis is to research the issue doxa and paradoxa of discourse of sexual matters in oral folktales. Lots of travestied tales of sexual matters show the rigid doxa, men as subject have the sexual dominance towards women. Especially that tales of sexual matters disguise mens violence towards women, their body and sexual organs by travestying. However some folktales have unusual female characters who give a denial to doxa which works in male dominated society. The heroines test, ridicule, and control male characters. Also they do not obey social order which man made and refuse the traditional norm and moral. These heroines are not found written tale-literature. We can find that oral folktales which contain sexual matters provide productive debate subjects to reestablish womens identities. Through the tales we can find the possibility to overcome doxa and have a chance to approach the paradoxa in sexual discourse.

    The Aspects of Women Readers Contributions an d Formation Processes of 'Woman Subjectivity' in The Enlightenment Era

    Hong,In-Sook | 2006, 0(14) | pp.103~130 | number of Cited : 20
    Abstract PDF
    Women readers in late Chosun Dynasty were a major class enjoying novels that were regarded as a wild and sentimental. From modern enlightenment of 1900s, however, some women readers started to read not only novels but also newspapers that were transmitting useful knowledge. They acquired modern knowledge via newspapers and started to express their opinion and position about modernity from their own experience via readers contributions. Women readers contributions in modern enlightenment times were printed on newspapers such as Empire Newspaper(帝國新聞), Daehan Daily Newspaper(大韓每日申報), etc. and women magazines such as Yeojajinam(女子指南) Charity Women's Magazine(자선부인회잡지), etc. The contents can be roughly divided in two parts. The first is about the meaning of modern education for women and the second is about traditional sexual discrimination. The women readers contributions that contained the two subjects had common characteristics. While it showed resistive languages against ruling discussion, it showed obeying ones complying with ruling discussion. The reason why these contradictory language descriptions were shown at the same time is that women's speaking just began to appear in the society. The process started to enable women to form themselves as a woman-subjectivity. Women readers contributions in modern enlightenment times are important and meaningful data that have shown the process, "women's writing".

    The Conflict of Doxa and the Writing Dialogue Form -with an interpretation of Ae-Oh Jahm

    Cho Kyeong Eun | 2006, 0(14) | pp.131~160 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This essay aims to suggest an idea of a new literary interpretation through the concept 'discursive bias(doxa)'. The writing of dialogue form works in this concept of the study. On analysing the text Ae-Oh Jahm ― which means 'the aphorism about a criterion of estimation' ―, I pointed out some structural principles of this writing form: framing a spatial and temporal ground that is fictionally constructed; characterizing two fictional discursive participants who are designated for conflicting discourses itself; and articulating the world in terms of a particular point of view. And the open consequence guarantees the dialogue pluralism of understanding. Moreover, in this text Ae-Oh Jahm some traditional intertexts are examined to verify the validity of its discourse. This would be the strong evidence that there exists the process of the critical reflection and dynamic interaction even in the monologic writing. In conclusion, I attempted to provide a new concept and a tool for interpretation which would cover the theory of literary form and artistic genres.

    Prejudice and its solution in Yorowonyahwaki (Records of night stories in Yorowon)

    JUNGHAYOUNG | 2006, 0(14) | pp.163~189 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Yorowonyahwaki is a significant Korean narrative, in terms of its theme and writing style. This work consists of dialogues between two travelers narrated by a first-person point of view. One of the main characters is a gentleman from Seoul, the capital city of Choson, and the other gentleman comes from a rural area. The two gentlemen meet by chance in a village inn and make conversation about themselves and social events. Even though the length of the work is relatively short, the dialogues of two strangers reflect the contemporary social circumstances by describing episodes on their social positions, their criticism on social injustices, and the competition of writing poems. Hitherto Yorowonyahwaki is considered as a simple story about a gentleman from Seoul who disguises himselfas a fool and deceives the other gentleman from a rural area. This work, however, can be approached from different perspectives. By describing the meeting of two travelers, it deals with the issue of prejudice in human relations. At the beginning of their meeting, they cannot understand each other and feel uncomfortable because of their prejudices against each other. While making conversation, however, they realize the sincere character of each other and establish a strong sense of bond over their prejudices. This work, therefore, can be understood as the story of the existence of prejudices in a human society and overcoming it by depicting the meeting of two strangers.

    A Study of the Novel Block Print editions in Anseong

    이정원 | 2006, 0(14) | pp.219~244 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    This paper is a research on what the list of the novel block print editions was and how it was published in Anseong. The companies which published the novel were 'Anseong Dongmunri', 'Buckchonseopo', 'Bakseongchilseojeom'. We could verify that from the colophon or copyright sheet. The works published at those company were 11, and the print blocks were 13. Each book was published through recarving the novel book which printed in seoul, or purchasing and reprinting the print block. The main issue about the novel printed in Anseong is when the book was printed and who published it. But now, we know that when Bak Seongchil (1856~1923) who is the publisher of Buckchonseopo and Bakseongchilseojeom was born and died. And also we find out "Chunhyangjeon" a novel book printed in Anseong Dongmunri, on the cover of which the time of the own year(1906) was written. About the matter of who run the Anseong Dongmunri or some publishing company before Buckchonseopo, I pesume that Bakseongchil run the company.

    The Study on Il-kwan-ki; its "object", "seeing" and "writing"

    Kim Bo Kyeong | 2006, 0(14) | pp.245~277 | number of Cited : 8
    Abstract PDF
    This thesis aims to examine on Il-kwan-ki(日觀記) which was written by Nam-Ok(南玉:1722~1770) using the key codes of 'object', 'seeing' and 'writing' and to clarify its characteristics and significances. As a writer(Che-sul-kwan:製述官) for Kye-mi-sa-haeng(癸未使行1763~ 1764), Nam-Ok had a self-conceit and a sense of duty. Il-kwan-ki(日觀記) is the literary product in that period. First of all, he was concerned about Japan on the whole and made a record all about what he observed in Japan. And his concern on literature was shown in the facts that he made literature itself the topic subject in his writing and that he made a record the names of companies whom he associates with literature in details. Second, basically his thought was Sinocentric, but in any case, judging its objects and reflecting ourselves as Korean, he took a rational and objective attitude. We can find the excellence in this respect, especially in the area of literature, arts and sciences. Third, despite its richness in contents, the composition of Il-kwan-ki(日觀記) is systematic and its style is elaborate and concise. Its form of describing is designed to convey the information and his experience to his audiences effectively. Being an envoy's record on visiting other country, Il-kwan-ki(日觀記) has the significance as another way of recording one's experience. And it is regarded to contribute to bring a turning point in the history of the thoughts in the latter period of Choseon Dynasty.

    An Appearance of Mongyurok and Literary Configuration of "Pain"

    조현우 | 2006, 0(14) | pp.279~309 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    This study is to discuss the background of appearance of Mongyurok(夢遊錄), especially associated with outstanding development of Neo- confucianism in the 16th century. Focussing on Wonsaengmonyurok(元生夢遊錄) and Geumsaengyimunrok(琴生異聞錄), I supposed to investigate two problems. First, the relation between the achievement of Chosun Neo-confucianism in the 16th century and the deep concern about history of the two texts. Second, a property of the assembly constituted of historical persons commonly showed in Mongyurok. The 'unexplainable pain' is a utmost key word to comprehend the Mongyurok emerged in the 16th century, because the term 'unexplainable' means that a dreamer in Mongyurok can not understand nor present why and from where the pain came to innocent people. Monyurok in the 16th century, I think, was the literary configuration of this pain, symbolized the limits of Chosun Neo-confucianism theory especially associated with the character of 'the Principal'(理). Condolence upon the past(弔古), commonly viewed in Mongyurok, was represented the disagreement between the ideal and the history. In chapter 4, I presented the imagination of the 'discontinuance' and the 'recall' to comprehend the property of the assembly constituted of historical persons, also commonly showed in Mongyurok. Establishing a genealogy of the Tao(道統) was the common behavior to the Neo- confucianists in China and Chosun. This establishments of genealogy needed the discontinuance to make a declaration of the rediscovery of Tao from themselves, and the recall to verify the qualification of themselves as the successor of legitimate lineage.

    The Transmission and Significance of a "Bong-sang Lee Case"

    Seo, Kyung Hee | 2006, 0(14) | pp.311~341 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    A case of Bong-sang Lee's escape was transmitted in many forms while it was stated by Bong-sang Lee himself and rumor spread and a witness told it and related materials were collected. It showed women's interests in Bong-sang Lee case, involved with a political event, in that it cared about a role of female narrator and Korean-reading readers during transmitting. And the records of the case were changed into different stories as it included characters around Bong-sang Lee more than it showed Bong-sang Lee's doings and developed information or cases relating with them. In case of the records of Bong-sang Lee case, it could be seen that using characters around Bong-sang Lee made the story be rich more effectively rather than it enlarged the scene or made it be more dramatic. In case of recording the whole story of Bong-sang Lee case, it showed a positive view on his escape. This is because the records were written by people of a party called "Noron," including Bong-sang Lee. It could be written as an admirable story and read by people of Noron in the mood that after Iminoksa - Massacre of Scholars happened in the year of Imin, they looked back on the cases happening before and after the massacre and intended to strengthen the power of their party. The records of Bong-sang Lee case, which show Bong-sang Lee managed to survive, dramatically represent how people of Noron had kept alive. So the records could be regarded as an odd story that they could feel sympathy for in the same position. Therefore, they were transmitted as a form that emphasized care of Providence and loyalty from servants, reflecting critical minds of the party's keeping alive and protecting traditional values.

    Women's Consciousness shown in <Boeungiurok>

    Choi, Sue-hyun | 2006, 0(14) | pp.371~400 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The primary objective of this study is to present women's consciousness shown in <Boeungiurok(報恩奇遇錄)> through analyzing female characters' attitude toward marriage. There are three female characters - Paek Seung-sul, Jang Mi-ju, Sul So-a - along with the male character Wi Yeon-cheong. They all live in a belief system called Patriarchal Ideology, that justifies male domination over women. The female characters in this book, however, are somewhat rebellious on the common belief. Paek Seung-sul behaves herself in Confucian doctrine while she defines right and wrong of her own accord in certain situations. She tries to make her life better and becomes an active role model for other women. Jang Mi-ju and Sul So-a admit that women should stay at home, and they are eager to find their husband-to-be. They are fully aware of the fact that a good marriage can provide them a more satisfying, comfortable life. They both recognize that Wi Yeon-cheong would not make a good husband as they wanted. Some time later, Jang Mi-ju are married to another man than Wi Yeon-cheong, and Sul So-a are living by herself. The author does not punish the female characters for not being obedient for Confucian doctrine. Rather, he let them live their own lives whether they are maried or not. The female characters in <Boeungiurok(報恩奇遇錄)> may express the desires of readers who wanted to escape from patriarchal ideology and sexuality in their society. The author may have read their minds and decided to write about it. The intention of author may be to provide catharsis for his readers living with the guilt of their sins of disobedience to patriarchal ideology and Confucian doctrine.
