The ecological imagination must be the contents and form that is embodied by the literature of future. And if the ecological literature is to be intended, especially in Korea, it must go beyond conveying just facts relating to the central ecological problems like the problem of atomic power or nuclear weapon. Particularly it must be emphasized that when being bound by the conventional political-ideological thinking way the true ecological imagination cannot be disciplined or showed. On the contrary the political judgement must be drawn from the ecological imagination that would see the truth as it is. The ecological literature that would discipline itself and bear the ecological imagination must have the aspiration that it would readily participate in the course of presenting a new paradigm of civilization.
The ecological literature which has the ecological imagination that has insight into the principle and truth of everything through the window of the relationships more than anything else, must not resist innovating the conventional attitude and point of view of the established genres as its forms. The ecological literature must be ready to dissolve and re-create all the established genres in a true meaning including novel that has been the central genre of the modern literature, and so, needless to say, it will be a quite different work from just an experiment of forms. Christa Wolf's novel, Svetlana Alexievich's form of oral history, and the various forms of essay of Rachel Carson, Arundhati Roy, Choi Sunggak and Kim Gomchi, already showed the models of the free forms that are worthy of being aimed for by the ecological literature.
