Plot

동경 유학을 한 26살인 구보는 몇 푼 안되는 원고료를 받는 소설가다. 그는 결혼을 해야 한다는 어머니의 걱정에는 직업이 없어서 안 된다고 하면서 일자리를 구할 생각도 하지 않는 룸펜이다. 그는 거의 매일 광교, 종로사거리, 화신백화점 등 서울의 거리를 걸으며 여러 사람을 만나다가 밤늦게야 집으로 돌아오는 일을 반복한다.

This is a novel by Park Tae-won, serialized in the Chosun JoongAng Ilbo from August 1 to September 19, 1934. Considered one of the achievements of Korean modernist novels in the 1930s, the descriptions of the people and the spaces of Gwanggyo, Jongno Intersection, and Gyeongseong Station are nearly a study of modernology.  In addition, the expression of the complex inner thoughts of the protagonist revealed through the stories that cross the past, future, and reality is considered a novel achievement that was rare in the 1930s.

박태원이 1934년8월1일부터 같은 해 9월19일까지 <조선중앙일보>에 연재한 소설이다. 1930년대 한국 모더니즘 소설의 한 성과라고 평가되는 작품으로 광교와 종로사거리, 경성역 등을 따라 걸으며 마주치는 사람들과 공간에 대한 묘사는 고현학을 방불케한다. 또한 과거와 미래, 현실을 교차하면서 드러낸 주인공의 복잡한 내면은 1930년대 당시 보기드문 소설적 성과라고 할 수 있다.
