The autobiography of 'I' and 'He', the meaning between them -A Study on Kwangsoo Lee "His Autobiography"
Lee Kwang-soo's "His Autobiography", which was published in the Chosun Ilbo from December 12, 1936 to May 1, 1937, is a work that recalls the story of his youth by borrowing the form of 'autobiography'. But why did Lee Kwang-soo write his autobiography in the mid-1930s, not the story of his life, but the story of his life. This paper started with the question. Why did Lee Kwang-soo want to borrow the form of 'autobiographical warfare' in the mid-1930s and tell the story of 'he'? In fact, if you read the work closely, you can see that 'he' in the title of his autobiography leads to 'I', the main character of the story, and 'I' is connected to Lee Kwang-soo. In the end, Lee Kwang-soo wanted to show his readers in this work was the 'he' and 'I' who overcome all kinds of hardships without being overwhelmed. Of course, the story of fiction is involved in the process, but the past 'memory' of Lee Kwang-soo was the purest past that he had been able to be most proud of and sacrificed for his cause. Therefore, Lee Kwang-soo wanted to be confirmed by the reader through the confession of the main character 'I', which was the fact that 'he' and 'I' were Lee Kwang-soo. And Lee Kwang-soo could go further there and want to see himself as the most 'Lee Kwang-soo'. In fact, "His Autobiography" is a confession of the past, but the reason why he can not read only the confession of the past is because of the order of memory Lee Kwang-soo chose. In particular, if you look at Lee Kwang-soo's thoughts, troubles and decisions that change through his second trip to China and his second study abroad in Tokyo, you can see Lee Kwang-soo's changes from his 20s to 30s and 40s. The work that was published in times and personal and sensitive times, especially in the form of 'autobiographical warfare', confessed mistakes, and summarized their thoughts, is meant to be present and present in the past and present arrangements and confirmation for the future.
