ABSTRACT

This study is a consideration of Xu Xiao-Bin(徐小斌)‘s Sounds of nature(天籁) in the mutual text point of view of Lee Cheong-jun’s Sopyonje series. Xu Xiao-Bin‘s Sounds of nature shows similar motive to Lee Cheong-jun’s Sopyonje series that is a story of a mother who damages her daughter’s eyes and the daughter. however, it is accepted in totally different ways that the action of father/mother who damage their daughter’s eyes. the mother in Sounds of nature is a composer as well as singer and the father in Sopyonje is a singer. The mother’s behavior is not able to have duty in Sounds of nature due to it is focused in ‘mother’s action’ rather than a singer but the father’s behavior is focused in ‘singer’s action’ in Sopyonje. therefore the action of the father, who is a singer, is considered not merely personal desire of father but also desire to preserve ‘singing’ as a national culture in public status. the length between two novels are clear in the two daughter’s point of views. the daughter in 「Sounds of nature」 refuses her destiny made from her mother. The daughter’s behavior of recovering her own volition, becomes frankly showing the falsehood of ‘mother’s love. In comparison, the daughter’s voice is under the shade in Sopyonje. she surrenders herself to the fate made by her father, and she does not show her desire. This is the point that the difference is created by gender of writers.
