Abstract

Ennui 1 by Yi Sang Hurry--I would rather--it just get dark--summer in this remote village--the days are long enough to bore one to death. To the east, P'albong Mountain. Why is its silhouette so devoid of curves, so monotonous? But look to the west and it is plains, to the south, plains, and to the north, plains again. Ah, what shall we do with these endless plains in every direction? And why is everything so damned green? Farmhouses line a single road, some ten on the left and ten on the right. Walls of crooked pine pillars patched with clay, wrapped 1. When this piece appeared in the newspaper (Chosn ilbo, May 4, 1937), it had the following footnote attached: The author Yi Sang did give us "Jongsaeng-gi"* before coming to an untimely end, but, relative to his formidable talents, what he left behind is regrettably scant. Lamenting this fact, his close friend Pak T'aewn, while looking through Yi's effects, discovered this unpublished manuscript. He then forwarded it to us so that it could be published here on the same day that Yi's remains were returned to his native land. *Jongsaeng-gi (), or "Record of a Life's End,"
