- This thesis examines the narrative grammar of Wanwolhyemaengyeon in
the point of reading dynamics. Established studies of narrative grammar on
river novels focused on ‘Work', but this thesis focuses on ‘readers'.
For this, the thesis examined ‘technique of digression', ‘technique of
correspondence between opening and close', and ‘technique of repetition'.
Firstly looking at ‘technique of digression', the digression among family is
activated through insistent appearance of active extras. These digressions
make readers meditate existing events, relax, and intervent into the text
Looking at ‘technique of correspondence between opening and close', the
opening of Wanwolhyemaengyeon promotes readers' understanding and
interesting, and prepares the heart of fore stories through presenting fore
events plainly. On the other side, the close of the Wanwolhyemaengyeon
makes readers experience unique completion of the work through the scene
of retrospect on Wanwol pavilion.
About ‘technique of repetition, this thesis examined that Wanwolhyemaengyeon
make readers awaken earlier events insistently and feel settled rhythm
through repetition of similar events. And this technique gives readers broad
view point not burying in the existing one event.
