Yi was a fiction writer and essayist. His essays originally focused on the need for national consciousness.  His fiction was among the first modern fiction in Korea and he is most famous for his novel, The Heartless . The Heartless was a description of the crossroads at which Korea found itself, stranded between tradition and modernity and undergoing conflict between social realities and traditional ideals.  His career can be split into thirds. The first period (That of The Heartless ), from 1910-19 featured a strong attack on Korea's traditional society and the belief that Korea should adopt a more modern ("western") worldview.  From the early 20s to the 30's Yi transformed into a dedicated nationalist and published a controversial essay, "On the Remaking of National Consciousness" which advocated a moral overhaul of Korea and blames Koreans for being defeatist.  The third period, from the 30's on, coincides with Yi's conversion to Buddhism and his work consequently becomes quite Buddhist in tone. This was also the period in which, as noted above, Yi became a Japanese collaborator.
