ABSTRACT

The Satire Patterns and Writer's Consciousness in Aenggumoksongwagalseonsaengjeon Jang, Ye-Jun This study presents the results of an investigation into the satire patterns of A Song Contest among the Ibis in Cheongseongjapgi, how they were changed in Aenggumoksongwagalseonsaengjeon, and what new meanings were revealed in the work. As mentioned in the previous study, A Song Contest among the Ibis in Cheongseongjapgi focuses on the criticism of "unjust rulings by dishonest bribery." In the work, every one of the characters is satirized. Aenggumoksongwagalseonsaengjeon follows the basic structure of A Song Contest among the Ibis in Cheongseongjapgi and further adds a story of "boasting noble families," changing the characters into the individuals representing the ruling class of the times including the middle class between the nobility and common people. Depicting their conspiracy based on bluff and "homogeneity," the author sneers at the reality that no one from the ruling class is qualified to lead the society in the right direction. The author also reveals the reality that no one deserves the expectation that he will lead the society that's full of conflicts of material interest among the members to the right path. Under the pressure of the reality that only conflicts of material interest remain with the spiritual values deteriorated, the intellectuals have lost their sense of direction. Their despair is also well described in the work based on the author's cool-headed perception of the reality where people are confronted with each other for their own desire and interest.
