The purpose of this article is to explain how to develop the self essays to the meditation essays by Lee Yang-ha. Lee Yang-ha specialized in English literature and so it is possible that his essays were influenced by Walter Pater, P. B. Shelley, W. S. Landor, I. A. Richards, Irving Babbitt, and Marcus Aurelius etc. His essays were marked by big gaps and heterogeneities, which is why they received contrary reviews from many critics.
An entire outline of his essays has yet to be figured out. In his essays based on his autobiography, we could know that Lee Yang-ha's Inner mind were full of the lack of affection and the solitary in his adolescent years. On the other hand, he was successful as a scholar of English literature and had high intellectual power and sincerity. His masterpieces, “The admiration of tender green” and “Tree”, focus on his deep solitaries. These were composed under the influence of Walter Pater’s aesthetics, and so his prose differs from the prosaic style but in verse style. The theme of both works focused on ‘solitary’, meaning the ‘Negative Liberty’ of Isaiah Berlin. The subject’s appearance was expressed as ‘enjoying solitary’ but Lee Yang-ha has eagerly longed for freedom from intervention. In accordance with Isaiah Berlin’s Liberty, this ‘Negative Liberty’ can be approached as the absence of interference. Lee Yang-ha had experienced negative perceptions of humans and realities. Therefore, he may have written his meditation essays using the concept of solidity which meant ‘Negative Liberty’ as the morality.
