ABSTRACT

This thesis is a study on the relationship between the education of women and couple conflict. We could observe that, in fact, ‘virtuous women’, the feminine ideal suggested in the education of the time, were more likely to cause conflict in conjugal relations. The education of women in the late Chosun dynasty had the social aspect of retaining the male-centric patriarchal system. The image of the female warrior or insensitive sterile women were the real state of women in the education of the time. The education of women of the time had prejudiced aspects and resulted in negative effects with regard to conflict in conjugal relations. In literary works women are described as follows. To men, ‘de-standard women’, not trained in the education of women, are more easy beings than taciturn, unadaptable and faithful women. Tender ‘flirtatious women’are more charming beings than solemn and virtuous women. And women with an outgoing and gallant air are more interactive beings than women with limited education. Due to the hidden side of the situation of the time, virtuous women underwent many difficulties and this was not the problem of one person, but of the education of women of the time. In terms of this, Yussisamdaerok is worthy of notice in that it catchs that subtle conflicts in conjugal relations are intimately related to the education of women of the time, and moreover it shows many interesting affairs sequentially.
