ABSTRACT

This essay aims to research relationships between the personified biographical novel and the Yanyi novel.(=it is a kind of history novel developed in China.) And also, I attend to make clear the change and development of the personified biographical novel in late Chosun dynasty. This is try to look out over the novel history in 17th century. For this purpose, I studied on creation techniques, the method of dividing chapters, materials and the figurations of characters appeared in 「ChungunYanyi」. This factors show the fact that the creation of 「ChungunYanyi」 is influenced by the Yanyi novel. So it have the similarities with the Yanyi novel, but it also have a lot of different sides. Especially, the characteristics as the personified biographical novel are perfectly different with Yanyi novels. And the subject of 「ChungunYanyi」 closely concerned with instinctive desires of human beings. This characteristics is the same with that of 「Guwoonmong」. Of course, 「Guwoonmong」 expose the ideal living of Buddism, but 「ChungunYanyi」 seeks after the ideal Confucian living for overcoming the living counting on instinctive desires. After all, 「ChungunYanyi」 is influenced by personified biographical novels, Yanyi novels and pornographic novels. This means that it also intimately connected with 「Guwoonmong」, 「TusakjiYanyi」, 「SadaeChunchu」 and 「Chungunbongi」 etc in novel history.
