ABSTRACT

This study intends to trace the new thinking of Yeon Am, Park Jiwon. It proves the sources of his creative thinking and writing and tells the several aspects connected with his new thinking. Firstly, Yeon Am thought that existing knowledge and letters did not contain the truth and criticized that the letters hided the reality. He insisted that literature is not just a tool to deliver past ethics and existing knowledge, but it should reveal the changeable things and reality. Things and reality are not just shadow of main body, but the best writings to show the truth. In his creative thinking, the centralization of surroundings is distinguished. Yeon Am left the center place and investigated into the invisible spaces and isolated conners. Superficially he seemed to insist looking into the both sides, in reality he urged to watch the invisible spaces, the place opposite to the common place agreed in a society. He provided surroundings toward the centeral place, sided for the value and existence isolated from the center. Finally, he wished that center and surrounding, valuable and humble things, all would have lived in a harmony. Secondly, this study explores his new understanding of light and color with his comparison of the blind. In his “NeungYangShiJeapSeo” the comparison of raven wings is not just problematic suggestion for the limitation of human sensory organ, but closely related with the theory of modern impressionist. This writing proves the high level of his creative thinking. He thought that the world is full of disorders and confusion, so nobody can see the world with superficial eyes. In his thinking, viewer deludes himself, so he should keep correct eyes to see the truth. His creative thinking overcame the paradigm and order of Middle Age and still today offers the present aspects and meaning with new critical mind. Yeon Am is to be considered as the marginal man who tried to create the true world.
