ABSTRACT

In this paper, we mainly discuss the aesthetics of indefinite intelligence, with a focus on three cultures: the West, Japan, and Korea. These cultures are represented by the writers Oscar Wilde, Junichiro Tanizaki, and Kim Dong-in, who share similarities in that they express beauty through the birth of demonic beauty or the negation of intelligence. Wilde and Kim Dong-in pursue mad beauty through the denial of intellect and, eventually, death. However, in Tatazaki’s work, the birth of a demon woman through the denial of intellect, the conquest of a man, the victory of evil, and death are not found.
