ABSTRACT

In this paper, I was read <Gu-un-mong(The Cloud Nine of Dream)> of Choi In-hun, around the keywords of ‘illusion’ and ‘self-consciousness’. I suggest that Choi In-hun uses a ‘illusion’ as aesthetic techniques of writing, and the technique was how to implement the vision of the nature of art(literature) and configured his writing style. His illusion drawing as an act of artistic creation shows self-consciousness in recognition reflects on the artistic dimension and the dimension of the work itself. Just as many of Choi’s novels based on illusion, <Gu-un-mong> is also a works created the illusion embodied in the narrative. Illusion In this novel shows the two techniques(equipment) properties. This novel is divided into three large stories, Dokko-min’s stories, Dr Kim yong-gil’s stories, and Film premiere’s lecture stories. In the third, Setting as film movie tells the Min’s stories and Dr. kim’s stories are illusions configured and connected as a continuous scene of the film frame by frame. Rather than the previous two stories are illusion in itself, those stories are illusion of the reader which originated in a break between scenes of stories. Illusions in the novel are not as scenes depicting the strange and irrational, as a way to constitute the novel and hermeneutical method for understanding the entire contents of the novel. In addition, textual 'repeat' of the novel are another device that make reads as min’s stories are an illusion. Textual signifiers that are repeated are also appearing in other novels, as well as the text of Choi In-hun made only within <Gu-un-mong>. Illusions of this novel are the effect of the signifier repeated in the text, and it shows with the act creating(making) the illusion. Choi in-hun’s novel presented self-consciousness through perceptual apparatus such as the repetition of textual signifiers, operating preinciple of illusion, in terms of the consciousness of the artist and the works-itself of reflecting the characteristics of the text with its message. The whole scene of his novels were several versions of illusion, and the whole scene of his novels were several versions of illusion. Illusion in every Choi’s novels had self-reflection properties, it was one of the creation method, further one of the styles in 1960s literary (fictional) writing.
