ABSTRACT

This thesis attempted to examine the background of the formation of the identity of Im Yunjidang and the process of establishment through yunjidangyugo. Yunjidangyugo contains 35 articles such as Jeon(傳), Non(論), Bal(跋), Seol(說), Jam (箴), Myeong(銘), Chan(贊), Jemun(祭). In the meantime, as research on Im Yunjidang(1721-1793) was actively conducted, his appearance as a Neo-Confucianist was revealed, and he was positioned as a female Neo-Confucianist in the late Joseon Dynasty. Since Yunjidangyugo contains articles in the order of time, the process of Yoonjidang’s solidification of identity is revealed through the articles contained in the collection. Therefore, this article tried to reveal the significance of anthology by paying attention to her early work and following her values and attitudes toward life. Through the first two stories of anthology, it was confirmed that the values of ‘morality’, ‘filial piet’, and ‘academic’ were regarded as important, and Yoon Ji-dang’s view of this value was continuously revealed in the anthology. Even if an adult refuses, an attitude to help others to ease the trouble, sincerity toward her husband, and doing something that pays back enemies to protect filial piety to her father can all be understood as the ‘filial piet as a political expediency’ shown in the following article. It can be seen that Yunji-dang’s writings recognize that it is not the virtue of the women to cultivate and record studies, but still reveal himself as writing. Yoonji-dang’s writing is straight󰠀forward and critical. She does not say her thoughts indirectly but expresses her thoughts without hesitation. In other words, Yunjidang shows his values and attitudes toward his life through Yunjidangyugo, which contains 35 episodes. The early two articles show what values Yoonjidang had in his childhood, and the women’s view, values of morality and filial piety, and interest in academic inquiry are confirmed through the articles contained in Yoonjidangyugo. Yoonjidang is not a process of changing his identity through the twists and turns of life, but shows the aspect of maintaining and solidifying his identity even in the twists and turns of life. Her anthology is a practical product that actively records Yoonjidang’s values.
