ABSTRACT

The first official literary work authored by Hwang-seokyeong was 「Ipseokbugeon」,which he wrote at the age of eighteen. Another work 「Paljaryeong」, which was published two years before when he was in the 1st grade of high school, took the view of others' interest and sympathy, also it bring forth the character of a kitchen maid as a model of so called others', and hereafter we can say that his novel bears the inter-textuality. However 「Paljaryeong」, as we see in the title, has been in the grip of fatalism, and hasn't achieved any true understanding compared to the sincere interest about the others'. But two years later when 「Ipseokbugeon」comes out, it frees itself from the negative fatalism and represents the positive will. During those two years Hwang-seokyeong went through trials of life, once when he dropped out of the school and the other time as he disappeared from home. Though he drifted away from the so called educational system, he got the reality of life as his mentor. And this has been the starting mark for「Ipseokbugeon」. However excessive self-consciousness debars it from achieving true relationship with others'. It took him about eight years of personal experience to enjoy the fruit of realism literature. But through「Ipseokbugeon」and「Paljaryeong」, written during his adolescence, we can thoroughly foresee the clue to the beginning of his literary work of 1970s.
