In usual evaluation of Bo-han Jip, one of prosaic records of ephisodes on poems and poets(詩話), special emphasis has been placed on the field of literary criticism. But, as miscellanious records(雜記), including some folktales, was put in this book, this field of folktales has directed some scholars attention as the short story in a transition. It is also said that this style of recording is included in a kind of essay, dueing to it s feature of random description. This prosaic litterature, composed of miscellanious elements, had been generally named of Pae-gwan (namely, minor official) literature. (稗官文學) Recently, there were some criticisms about this general name of Pae-gwan literature on account of its ambiguity. All for suggestion of various issues, there was no general and systematic study on the prosaic literature like Bo-han Jip as yet. In this paper, the study on literary character of Bo-han Jip was attempted on the basis of an analysis of interrelations between each literary fields of which this book was composed, and numerical comparison of paragraphs, belonged to each field. This book was composed of miscellanious records, including ephisodes and criticism on poems and poets(詩話) or on prosaic writings(文談) as well as folktales and random description (and comment) of history-biographical style(史傳體漫錄), but with priority given to ephisodes and criticism on poems and poets. The latter developed into literary criticism. Contrasted against the so-called “orthodox” literary, this style of recording had common feature of history-biographical ephisode and anecdote, marked by the non-professional and secondary style of miscellanious records. This Style of recording was also characterized by fragmentary ephisodes, indivisualized and satirical, and this inside stories was not a field, dealt with by the orthodox literary and history. These fragmentary records include ephisodes about persons, poems and prosaic wrtings as well as grotesque ghost stories(志怪), which was also related to the life and consciousness of Buddhist and common peoples, inspite of the emphasis of orthodox principle (正道) by Confucian scholar-officials. It is not appropriate that this unspeciallized literary style was given a name of independent genre. This literary style should be named by a general term(總稱) in contrast with “orthodox” literature. The term of so-called “Pae-gwan” literature, one of old-fashioned general terms was derived itself from the bureaucratic, reactionary(復古的) ideas of the Confucian scholors of Han(漢) China. Consequently it was not coincided with the actual condition of the origin of this miscellanious recording. Moreover, it was more unfamiliar and ambiguous term in our country, especially in modern times. At past, the term, “so-seol” had been used as terms meaning trifle and sundry stories. It was also not appropriate term because it leads to conceptional confusion with the moderm term of novel (so-seol) Therefore, the term ef “literary criticism and miscellanious records”(評論雜記) was more appropriate as the name of this miscellanious literary style, because it suggests the general feature of miscellanious recording, with the eliment of literary criticism emphasized.
