    Women's Relationship to Their Parental Home and Their Husbands' Home in the 18th Century of Chosun Dynasty

    Kyungmi Kim | 2009, 0(19) | pp.5~30 | number of Cited : 23
    Abstract PDF
    This paper tried to reveal how Sadaebu of the 18th century accepted Chinyoungrye(親迎禮) and how this perception was reflected in women's lives by analyzing records of those days such as haengjang(行狀) which were kind of biographies of Yangban, jemun(祭文), epitaphs inscribed on tombs, and women's autobiographical writings. Focussing on the women's respective relationship to their parental home and their husbands' home, I wanted to show how norms of those days attempted to define women's identity, and how women themselves saw what they were. Scholars who developed the discourse of 예(禮) at those times mentioned that Chinyoungrye was rarely practiced in ordinary lives, and only in the royal family it was followed because of high cost and inconveniences. Generally young couples started their marriage life in brides' parental home. And there were found many cases where only wives kept to live in their parental home. On the other hand, the records which had intended to afford moral lessons to women constructed women's lives focussing only on their husbands' home. Sadaebu tried to discipline women to obey to the will of their in-laws and to make this discipline as a norm for women. Through this study I found that patriarchal system of family based on Jongbub(宗法) was not thoroughly established in the 18th century and two conflicting tendencies co-existed in women's lives. This argument was made based on yangban(兩班), the aristocratic class of those times. Therefore more investigation of individual cases of ordinary lives is needed for more extensive and accurate picture of women's lives in the 18th century.

    유정선 | 2009, 0(19) | pp.57~83 | number of Cited : 19
    Abstract PDF
    This research, which is about Whajeonga, intended to examine the meanings of play experience. Through Whajeonga, the research investigated female's consciousness of dreaming to escape from daily life, especially focusing on food and drinks they enjoy. In playing space it is essential to have a sense of emotional freedom, out of their daily standards. It is making and feasting on their food that gives the enjoyment of running contrary to the social standards. Food do not hold a practical meaning in Sadaeboo Gasa, in contrast to female playing space. Also alcoholic drinks in female playng space allows females to experience drinking culture in other ways, further allowing them to look back at themselves. Thus, enjoyment through playing comes from pleasance of self-sufficiency, which is formed in friendly bonds between them.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of the current study is to discuss how to enhance readability of Korean long piece novels. Surplus dialogues evoke readers' sympathy emotionally while having the readers get absorbed in the world of text and feel a sense of distance on the other hand. Reproduction of various images of women represents layered desire of women in noble families. Although Korean long piece novel seems that it focuses on creating a lady of refined manners superficially, images of women who want to escape from Confucianism are also reproduced. Internal narration makes a reader feel self-pity by reflecting the reader's emotion on a heroine's feeling. Character description satisfies aesthetic senses of women in noble families. Both a hero and a heroine are described in ideological images, which represents ideal ideology for beauty of women in noble families. Correlations of Korean long piece novels are described with mutual relationships between characters and contents in different two works. Readers can improve readability through analysis reading thanks to mutually related narration.

    Study on 'the Borderline Consciousness' of <Chuiyu-boobeokjeong-ki>

    Sooyeon Kim | 2009, 0(19) | pp.217~250 | number of Cited : 23
    Abstract PDF
    The cross fire to <Chuiyu-boobeokjeong-ki>―on the one hand it is social criticism or resistance not to make a compromise and on the other it's the concentration upon Taoism or escapism―is caused by Kim, si-seop's borderline consciousness. Either the borderline consciousness is not the mutual concession or the vague stretching over the two different territory. This is not just between the physical area, it stands on its own after coming from doings, situations, consciousness and every possible fields. When we apply the common way of reading to the writings presupposing borderline consciousness, it is apprehended that we take the wrong sow by the ear or underestimate it on account of its ambiguity. <Chuiyu-boobeokjeong-ki> features borderline consciousness. So we need to cut loose from a conventional reading to appreciate an esthetic sense it creats. For this reason, we define the new concept 'space boundary zone' as the kernel of a borderline consciousness. Space boundary zone is a special room having various overlapping time slots in one physical space. Time slots show historicity―it inosculates past and present―in the space boundary zone and a man in that place becomes history. While a man in the time slot goes through various time layers simultaneously, he especially feels sympathy for allied situation to his circumstances. Boobeokjeong is the place where there is a space boundary zone. They pass through 'Chui(醉)', a margin between consciousness and unconsciousness and 'Yu(遊)', routine and deviation in entering space boundary zone. Hong-saeng never stop feeling a sensation of pleasure when he get drunken, his dim consciousness drove him to the Boobeokjeong as his taking a stroll on the river. Ascending a river means Boobeokjeong is above where he used to be, the above is the heavens as for space and also the past as for the time. Consequently, Boobeokjeong is an actual place in history as well as a dreamscape with a fantasy of the heaven. He present writer concentrates on eliciting a lamentation of the rise and fall, connecting from the lunar world or the fairly land with Dangun, the founding father of the Korean nation, Kija and Dongmyungwang. Hong-saeng's realistic grief in Boobeokjeong is linked up with his historical sorrow. His poem displays the feeling of sorrow. He rises to the climax facing one part of a time layer, he makes an image Miss Ki, the his historical shape of ego. Cantillation between Hong-saeng and Miss Ki is the conversation from one ego to another, their poems never make a separate scenery but one esthetic feeling as a whole. A Hong-saeng's poem full of sorrows exposes his loneliness, Miss Ki combines Hong-saeng's grief with the image of the heaven and express surrealistic landscape of the Boobeokjeong. As for the last poem, Hong-saeng laid a poetic theme before Miss Ki and she responds in singing including the process of the first brush at the Boobeokjeong and their separation. A highly elated sorrow still survive to the end, Miss Ki vanished into thin air. At that time Boobeokjeong got changed from space boundary zone to reality, Hong-saeng had a dim consciousness through the momentary tremor of consciousness. After this, Hong-saeng underwent the floating of consciousness due to his loneliness of self-effacement, he was to be an aide of Kyeonu in the heaven and finally he found his way out. We can see much chance of communicating with each other, Hong-saeng and Miss Ki. The writer of <Chuiyu-boobeokjeong-ki> is anxious for a mate, a truthful relation can communicate with each other sincerely and self-pity and affection for incomplete ego. And an upward movement of space―from Pyeongyang to Boobeokjeong and from Boobeokjeong to the heaven―shows an uprush of a longing and unbearable sadness.
