This study aims at examining the criticism of Patriarchal Ideology of Son Chang-seob s novel in the 1960 s. Son Chang-seob published 9 volumes of novels serially in the newspaper during 10 years in the 1960 s. The principal themes are marriage and sexuality.
Leading characters desire to get a position of patriarch through finding-wife narrative. A hero of (1960) and a heroine of (1961) have a strong desire to return to traditional patriarchy, but these trials are ended in failure. Patriarchy connects with modernized ideology at that time. In (1962) and (1963), the principal characters show ambivalent attitudes toward traditional patriarchy and modern patriarchy.
In Son Chang-seob s novels, a sexuality means resistance against patriarchal ideology. But patriarchal ideology controls this kind of sexuality. It appears as a separation of spirit and body. The spirit (tends to) control the body efficiently with modernized ideology.
