ABSTRACT

This thesis considers chiefly in the 'False(假)' motif, appears repeatedly in Lee Chung-jun's novel. And attentions how the motif tuned with his formation of view of novel, and pursuits the aesthetic philosophic cognizance within. In Lee's work, the question about 'False' processed as follows. On the basis, there is tragic cognizance that the actual world is full of the 'False', then searching alternative plan both in individual and social dimension. In such course, he used aesthetic device like 'Mask' and a 'rhetoric of Masquerading' in pickpocket character. Consequently, he rescues the romantic truth which has critical attitude on the absurdity and violence of actual world. It is clear that his works are not only the fictions but also the fictions intermediate actuality. All of these examination let us notice Lee's post-modern speculation. And his works formated strategically by the supplement relation in "Truth/False, Fact/Rumor, Genuine/Corrupted, Value in use/Exchange value, Real/Fictional". Like this, by tuning the cognizance of 'False' variety, supplements new significance of the 'fiction', the basic concept of novel. Lee's peculiar 'pseudomorph(假象)' formed in this way.
