ABSTRACT

One of the characteristics apparent in proses written by Park-Mi[朴瀰] is the active use of anecdotes in their creative process. This feature of Park-Mi’s proses is closely related to a family tradition of the Bannam Park Clan[潘南朴氏], whose elders passed down to their descendents anecdotes about their ancestors. His father Park Dongryang[朴東亮]’s influence played a large role in this as well, whose interest in collecting anecdotes had led him to write Gijejapgi[寄齋雜記]. In particular, Park-Mi’s active use of anecdotes in his Biziryu[碑誌類] works endowed credibility and veracity to the contents of his writings. He also appropriately applied dialogical sentences, succeeding in conveying the liveliness of the object that he depicted. Meanwhile, Park-Mi attached great importance in the documentary value of the anecdotes themselves and actively collected and recorded anecdotes in his works. These efforts resulted in establishing the recording of anecdotes with documentary values in the literatures.
