Chŏng Inbo

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter discusses the works of Chŏng Inbo, one of the most prominent scholars of the colonial period. He was particularly active in writing essays on Korean history and literature in the 1930s before withdrawing from public life in the face of Japanese demands for assimilation late in the decade. Chŏng's collected works were published in six volumes by Yonsei University in 1983. The first volume was comprised of his poetry (sijo) and criticism on both Korean and Chinese literature. The second volume included essays on Korean history written in a mixed script of vernacular Korean and Chinese characters in addition to epigraphs and poems in classical Chinese. In this volume, Chŏng discussed historical figures and his interpretation of Wang Yangming Learning. The third and fourth volumes contained the essays on Korean history that had been serialized in the East Asia Daily.

Keywords:   Chŏng Inbo, sijo, Yonsei University, East Asia Daily, Chinese literature, Korean literature
