    Abstract PDF
    This study set out to demonstrate that Yun Seon-do created Sanjungsingok based on his direct connections to the management of Geumsoaedong and make an attempt at interpreting his Manheung and Owooga based on the findings. Yun created Manheung out of joy he felt in the process of enjoying the nature surrounding Hoishimdang that took the most important position in the Geumsoaedong garden. It consists of total six poems. Poem 1 is the prologue and tells that his duty was to build Hoishimdang and manage Geumsoaedong. Poems 2~5 make up the main body, which is then divided into two parts: Poems 2 and 3 offer detailed depictions of the speaker enjoying nature around Hoishimdang, and Poems 4 and 5 show his satisfaction with his life in Geumsoaedong around Hoishimdang. Poem 6 is the conclusion in which the speaker attributes all of it to the royal benevolence. It is the expression of what he felt in his contact with nature in Geumsoaedong rather than a conventional finish. In his Owooga, Yun introduces five natural objects and praises their virtue. It is important to understand that he newly found those five natural objects and their virtue in Geumsoaedong. As the expression Cheonseokgohwang tells, water and rocks have been regarded as representative natural objects. It is a paradox that people do not realize their preciousness because they are representative natural objects. Yun realized their preciousness anew and made them his objects of Owoo. Both the pine tree and bamboo tree have long attracted attention as they remain green throughout the four seasons of the year. It is not the only reason, however, that he made them his objects of Owoo. He chose the two because he discovered their internal virtue not seen on the outside anew: the pine tree has straight roots deep in the ground, and the bamboo tree has a unique attribute of hollowness inside. Finally, he chose the moon because he realized the greatness of small things himself while seeing it frequently in Geumsoaedong.

So people of Jo-Seon Dynasty longed for national power of Goguryo. And narrative of Seol-In-Gui was flowed from China. Besides Seol-In-Gui, Dang-Tae-Jong, Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Dege were deified and the story was transmitted. Therefore <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>․<Dang-Tae-Jong-Jeon>․<Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg-Jeon> were able to published.

    Composition Process of 'Cho-ok narration' in <Po-eui-gyo-jip> -With a Special Emphasis on Rumors about Cho-ok-

    LEE, JUYOUNG | 2017, (36) | pp.115~145 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    This study defines the narration of <Po-eui-gyo-jip(布衣交集)> as that about 'Cho-ok(楚玉)' and investigated the process to compose it. Cho-ok is the character who tries to actively expose and achieve her desire. She has been aspiring to have ‘Po-eui-ji-gyo(布衣之交)’ with a true classical scholar and hoped that her materials of poetry will be recognized. This aspiration has been formed by the Chinese classics such as histories, Confucian scriptures, collections of poems and romance novel(傳奇小說). Her envy for female poets such - for example, Heo Nan-seol-heon(許蘭雪軒) - as well as her history as a maid of honor influenced her inner world and formed her identity. The friendship between Cho-ok and Lee-Saeng(李生) is intervened by messages and rumors of surrounding people. Through this, her materials of poetry, the characters' words and behaviors and whole story about Cho-ok are disclosed. The images of Cho-ok, who is outstanding for appearance and talent, are defined and composed by the perspectives and words of people. However, both the message and rumor include the truth and falsehood, and Lee-Saeng sometimes believes falsehoods about Cho-ok. The surrounding people incites the characters to make a selection, directly intervenes their relationship, and cause incidents. Jang Sa-Seon(張士先) plays the biggest role among them. Even though Cho-ok dates Lee-Saeng as a married woman, she rejects the courtship of Jung-Yak(仲約) and attempts to commit a suicide, resisting against her husband. The rumor about Cho-ok becomes a famous story in the Seoul. Lee-Saeng and Cho-ok meet again at the garden of the Ministry of Rites(禮曺) preparing for the wedding ceremony of Emperor Gojong(高宗) and Queen Min(閔). In spite of her status as a married woman, Lee-Saeng, whose standing is raised, saves Cho-ok, who is about to lose her chastity after being selected as a 'Yeonyeong(女伶)'. In front of many people, Cho-ok makes her position clearly related to Lee-Saeng through questions and answers with giseng(妓生)s. But in the invasion of the 'Western barbarians', namely the chaos of Byengin Yangyo(丙寅洋擾), only unproved rumors about Cho-ok circulate. This is related to the unique spatiotemporal background of Seoul between Jun. 1864 and Jun. 1866. This period is in the changes by the Western invasion as well as the interior system maintenance of Chosŏn Dynasty with the history of 500 years. The 'Cho-ok narration' in compliance with these changes reveals the crack of the values that supported Chosŏn Dynasty, and the creation of this work as a novel style of 'story about Cho-ok' corresponds to messages and rumors.

    A Study on the Patterns and Management Methods of Authentic Precedents Appearing in Long Novels in Korean

    Choi, Sue-hyun | 2017, (36) | pp.147~183 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this research study is to investigate the patterns and management methods of the authentic precedents appearing in long novels in Korean. As already known, long novels in Korean apply a wide variety of authentic precedents into enormous narratives, to an unlimited extent. Given the fact that those authentic precedents utilized are based on contents contained in various areas such as scriptures, history books, moral training textbooks, literary works, etc, it can be considered that investigating authentic precedents means exploring knowledge base shared by those who preferred works of those times. In this regard, this study examined 12 long novels in Korean created in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and steadily read until the nineteenth century to understand authentic precedents emerging in works, in a bid to consider how long novels in Korean use and accept authentic precedents in reality. The analytic result of this study shows that 545 authentic precedents are utilized in long novels in Korean, and they were quoted from anecdotage, such as 『Seseolshineo』, and various poem works in the Chinese Character in addition to scriptures, history books, moral training textbooks presented in the past. Also, it is found that those authentic precedents are contained in more than two works as a whole. This means that those of those times really share knowledge through novels. Also it is identified that long novels in Korean utilizing various authentic precedents show differences in characters of each work. This seems to be derived from the differences in concerns, attitudes and roles of works as to the managements of authentic precedents, and those in knowledge that the author has.

    Hur, Soonwoo | 2017, (36) | pp.185~219 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This paper considers the characteristics of the two episodes on the ground based on the common point of the <Gi-yeon-jung-zer(奇緣中絶)> and <Chong-ru-ui-nyo-jon(靑樓義女傳)> of the episode, which is based on the same story as “Du-shi-niang” and is published in modern newspapers. It is necessary to pay attention to the intentions and the times of writers and horses that can be revealed when a work is transformed without being reprinted as it is, through a precedent study interpreting “Du-shi-niang” in connection with sex, money, death, It is because. The study examines the general characteristics of the newspaper in which the relevant article is published and the attributes of the published page, and then analyzes the contents delivery method, attitude, and goal of the selected artist in consideration of the orientation of the medium or the nature of the paper Respectively. And I wanted to find meaning that I could read through works that were modified in such a way. As a result, I saw <Gi-yeon-jung-zer> as a work focused on the process of establishing a logic of pro-Japanese justification of Chosun domination by showing the problematic reality of Chosun, which is the absence of the faith of the main character and the human objectification. In order to attain the goal of enlightening the nation, the <Chong-ru-ui-nyo-jon> modified the works in a novel style. It gives the validity of the act of parasitism by suggesting the idea of the petty ideology which was the dominant logic of pre-modern society, In the process of directing the voice of the directing toward the audience, it is seen that it is a work that typed the characters and undertook a logical leap.
