Fictionalization of the Noble Women's Lifeduring the Chosun DynastyLee, Dong-haIn this thesis, I discussed three storiesLee Sa-jong's Wife by Han Mu-suk, The White Bird by Song Woo-Hye and Heo Nan-seol-heon as the Liberal Spirit like a flame by Kim-Shin Myeong-suk. All these stories are important works in fictionalizing of the nobility women's life in Chosun Dynasty.The nobility women of Chosun Dynasty have double-faced features. On one hand, they belong to the nobility group. But on the other hand, they belong to a lower group in terms of gender. With these double-faced features, the nobility women of Chosun Dynasty experienced much suffering in everyday life. The three stories that I have discussed research the lives of those women. They have important meanings in two aspects.First, these works have meanings as good samples of the historical novel in Korean literary history.Second, these works have meanings as criticizing for tradition of sexual discrimination. Above all things, these three stories show the thought of real equality and human liberation.
