ABSTRACT

This thesis was aimed at focusing on the selection of women who choose to become Taoistic monks in the latter part of the Joseon Dynasty. Those who suffered hardships in the family chose to become a sanctuary as an alternative to overcoming hardship. Thus, I divided the story into a deliberate reason and a training course. First of all, I found the reason why two women decided to become Taoists in this novel. Therefore, it analyzed what death meant to them. And I looked at their efforts to become Taoistic monks. The tenets of Taoism in the late Joseon Dynasty are focused on making good progress by practicing good deeds, reconciliating and buliding a virtue. As stated in the preamble, the aim of this study was to focus on how this novel was accepted in the form of Taoism in terms of how it was accepted. And finally, I analyzed that the female characters posed a question to the reader through a story, which makes it meaningful to ask readers to think about real life that exists on the back of a fantastic solution.
