ABSTRACT

'Jo-Chong-Ryun'(조총련) literary criticism follows primarily the literary policy of North Korea. The idea that 'native country is a great Suryung(수령), Suryung is the very native country.' is the basis to 'Jo-Chong-Ryeon' literary criticism, and the teaching of Kim, Il-Sung(김일성) determines the orientation of 'Jo-Chong-Ryun'(조총련) literary criticism. Japanese-korean literary criticism is a part of Korean literature, and that is the very national literature which uses korean language and formulates man as the subject to the history. So-called the 'subject realism'(주체사실주의) that is based on the subject idea of Kim-Il-Sung is the only idea that Japanese-korean literature must pursue. But as a tool, the language is not the element that determines the national identity in national literature. At this point, 'Jo-Chong-Ryun' writers reveal strongly the crisis of a korean language. Finally, language is a touchstone that certifies the national identity in a national literature.
