ABSTRACT

This study examined the repetitive description parts of Sukhyang's hardships in Sukhyangjeon, and considered why these repetitive descriptions appear in Sukhyangjeon. In addition, I considered ways to use these repetitive description parts in classical novel education. In Sukhyangjeon, the journey of Sukhyang's hardship is repeatedly presented through the utterances of various characters including Sukhyang. This repetitive description can be seen as the author's technique to assist readers' memory, who may forget the plot or confuse the sequence of the journey due to the nature of the long novel and many hard journeys experienced by Sukhyang. Also, I think that the author aimed at the effect of emphasizing the tragic situation of Sukhyang more by continuously presenting the hardships experienced by Sukhyang. The repetitive description parts appearing in Sukhyangjeon can be used for Classical novel education. I summarized these into three categories. First, the importance of repetitive learning can be emphasized. In the process of reading the repetitive description parts, Learners can learn the details of Sukhyang's journey contents naturally due to the effect of repetition, without intentionally memorizing the contents of Sukhyangjeon. By mentioning this point, the importance of repeated learning can be emphasized. Second, it can help to understand the narrative structure of the novel. The repetitive description part is the Sukhyang’s life story and the plot of the novel. The learner can easily understand the narrative structure of the novel by naturally organizing the contents of the novel in the process of reading the repetitive description parts. Third, it can help to understand the world view of the work. The learner can easily understand the world view of Sukhyangjeon through the Taoist characteristics of the characters appearing in the repetitive description parts.
