Plot

윤 직원 영감은 젊은 시절 화적떼로부터 재산과 아버지를 잃은 후, 구두쇠처럼 산다. 그리고 자신의 재산을 보호해주는 일본인들에게 감사해 한다. 윤직원과 그의 자식, 손자 며느리들은 지금이 태평천하라 생각한다. 어느날 윤 직원은 손자 종학이가 사회주의 운동에 참여하여 경찰에 붙잡혔다는 소식을 듣고, 불한당 짓을 했다며 눈물을 흘린다.

This is a novel by Chae Man-sik, published in January to Septembers editions of Jogwang in 1938. Through the fall of Yun Jik-won’s family, which is festering with problems inside despite its peaceful façade, this work satirically describes the Korean society in the late 1930s.

1938년 <조광> 1~9월호에 발표된 채만식의 장편소설이다. 겉으로는 태평성대인 것처럼 보이지만 속으로는 곪아가고 있는 윤 직원가족의 몰락을 통해 1930년대 후반의 한국 사회를 풍자적으로 드러내고 있다.
