Yang Kui went to study in Japan when the Japanese proletarian literary activity rises, he also interacted with proletarian literature writers, and his works were also influenced by many Japanese writers. However, under the influence of modern Japanese literature, researches about how he was influenced by another writers were few.
Before Yang Kui went to Japan, he had read the two book of Osugi Sakae according to his interview. Osugi was killed by the military in the Kanto earthquake. and Yang Kui was shocked by this.This became the trigger of his thinking. The book which Yang Kui read first after he went to Tokyo was Osugi's book.
Osugi Sakae proposed 'The Peoploe's Theatre', which is triggered by the translation of Romain Rolland's 'The People's Theatre' and based on it. Thus, 'The People's Theatre' has a strong power which made the drama not to fall into the Pessimism and Sentimentalism. Osugi claimed that it is the art which comes from people and also be made for people.
These elements were also applied to Yang Kui's work. In addition, many comments of Yang Kui and Osugi Sakae's 'The People's Theatre' have the same opinions. Although, there is no records to show , but we can infer that Yang Kui also intended to show 'The People's Theatre'.
The thesis collects Yang Kui and Yamakawaism and Fukumotoism as prior research, and will consider how he was influenced by 'The People's Theatre'. Secondly, comparing Yang Kui's works with Hayama Yoshiki , Kobayashi Takiji, Nakano Shigeharu, whom I think have the relevance with Yang Kui in the Japanese proletarian literary.
By these comparison, the characters filled with hope and lightness, which Japanese proletarian literature has lost and seen in the Osugi Sakae's 'The People's Theatre', and the viewpoint of colony , which the Japanese writer ignored will be clarified.
