Abstract

This study aims to extract images of America and American soldiersout of Korean War Literature, and to search for and understand thepersisting, underlying formulae or forms in these images. The results ofthis study may appear provocative: for over 50 years, Korean writershave failed to give any authentic voices to America as a nation orAmericans as characters, mainly due to complex feelings originatingfrom the combined psychology of superiority and oppression.
