ABSTRACT

This study sought to examine the immigration pattern and settlement process of the Korean immigrants described in the Korean immigrant literature on Manchuria in the period of Japanese colonial rule and by doing so, to identify the nature of the Korean immigrant literature on Manchuria and the meaning of a national literature. The Korean immigrant literature on Manchuria described the tragedy of the early Korean immigrants as well as a strong intention for resettlement in Manchuria. An Sugil's “Byu” “Bookhangdo”, Kim Changgul's “Armya”, Hyun Kyungjoon's “Sungusidae” are the representative literature. Besides, the Korean immigrant literature on Manchuria criticized on the Manchuria's policy and expressed strong resistance toward it. Sihn Seoya's “Chusuk”, Hyun Kyungjoon's “Milsoo” “Byul” are the exemplary literature on the above described critique and resistance. Furthermore, these literature criticized the contradiction of Manchuria's policy through the phenomena of drug addiction and articulated a despair of the intellectual. Those characteristics are well described in Hwang Gun's “Jehwa”, Kang Kyungae's “Mayack”, Hyun Kyungjoon's “Mayemye kumsun”, Choi Myungik's “Simmoon”. All of these literature realistically described the migration experience and resettlement process by focusing on the various life styles and experiences of the Korean immigrants on Manchuria.
