ABSTRACT

This study examined the process of resolving the case and the ways of shaping themes centering on the suspicious crime narrative of Okseongmong. In Okseongmong's crime story, it was important to shape the resolution of the case itself. Criminal evidence was placed throughout the story to make reasoning possible. And repeated statements by different figures tolerate a variety of interpretations of the case and solve the case according to institutional procedures, without involving ethical judgment. This characteristic of the criminal narrative corresponds to the author's perception of the importance of reading fun and reliable stories. Individual experience in the criminal narrative is strictly limited to personal events and does not extend to community problems. This is in line with the turning of the reading process into a reader's personal activity of inferring events based on evidence. Such a significant change in the writing of novels became the basis for the translation and creation of crime novels in earnest since the 1910s.
