ABSTRACT

A literary magazine 『Jindallae』 appeared again in front of us in 2008 has an important significance in taking a view of the literary history in Japan. Since, as one of magazine media in Japan, it was a place for In-Japan discourse and poetry creation merging the 1st and 2nd generations of Koreans in Japan, succeeding in incorporating an archetype of In-Japan awareness of ‘In-Japan’ and the ‘second generation’ going through a friction around literature and politics. 『Jindallae』 made ‘In-Japan awareness’ sprout most radically at the point of the periodic inflection in 1950s, taking its role faithfully as an arena of the public opinion in terms of such issues. In a situation that divided nation came to be actualized and the space of Japan came to be recognized as an object of settlement after liberation, as for an unanswerable question about ‘homeland as an idea’ or ‘In-Japan as the reality’ Korean residents in Japan had to face, 『Jindallae』 tried to find out an answer through serious discussions on poetry creation. In contrast to the destiny of 『Jindallae』 that was discontinued with the final issue No. 20, 1958, A task 『Jindallae』 suggested, in other words, still remaining suffering of Korean residents in Japan who had to grope for the existence fiercely facing the unilateral logic of politics may be said to prove the value of 『Jindallae』 in the literary history in Japan. In addition, it is regarded that a literary magazine 『Jindallae』 has clues for various problems penetrating the past and present of Korean residents in Japan. So, hereafter it is required to conduct studies continually related to this issue.
