|In the year when a complete translation of Ulysses appeared in Japan, Park Taewon, admittedly the first Korean modernist writer, went there to be exposed to the influences of Joyce. After reading Ulysses, it seems to me, Park was influenced by its styles and themes in one way or another, and in varying degrees. He mentions this novel twice and even discusses it briefly in A Day of Mr Goobo the Novelist. This paper traces the resemblances between them, including narrative technique. True, Park opposes what is termed "modernology" to Joyce`s modernist technique, but these two do not seem to differ greatly. In short, Joyce and Park differ in degrees, not in kind, at least in these two works. The difference is that Joyce is more thorough, complex, and subtle in his experimentation with styles and his use of the stream of consciousness and allusions. As a result, Park`s novella is less obscure and less open to many interpretations, unlike Joyce`s text which is full of enigmas.
