They include several short essays commemorating the construction or refurbishing of buildings and pavilions as well as two essays that show Chŏng Tojŏn’s efforts to understand and make understandable to other’s difficult political and ethical decisions that led to his exile and separation from his family. Finally, the chapter includes an example of questions that he created for the civil service examination, which reveal his ideas on rulership and place of educated men in polity.
