ABSTRACT

This paper aims to analyze the underlying meanings of individual and separate stories appearing in <Hungnyong-ilgi>. <Hungnyong-ilgi> foretells war through unusual stories, which appeared as the hints of breaking war, and blames the politicians who could not catch the hints for being incompetent. We could read another criticism of the society through an interesting story about the conflict between a Japanese commander and his sister. In that story, commander's sister, who was described superior to her brother in her judgement and competence, was flatly ignored by her brother, but later her judgement was proved to be right. By revealing her competence this story tells us the inappropriateness of the unreasonable gender discrimination at that time. There are many stories in which our generals won the battles thanks to the supernatural beings' patronage. Through these stories, we could read the elitism of our people. In <Hungnyong-ilgi>, the narrator is exposed overtly and directly tells us the story in many cases. Although this kind of setting could have merits of conveying themes clearly, it reveals that <Hungnyong-ilgi> has not overcome factors of narratives(sulwha), so it could not be said to be a “novel”(sosul).
