NvXianWaiShi is based on ‘Jingnan campaign’ which occurred during the Ming Dynasty. ‘Jingnan campaign’ was a civil war in the early years of the Ming dynasty of China between the Jianwen Emperor and his uncle Zhu Di, the Prince of Yan. The important thing is that although the novel was set in a war, it features a female hero, not a male hero. Few classic novels feature female heroes. Therefore, this paper focused on the female character in the NvXianWaiShi. In Chapter 2, women were divided into the world they belonged to, and analyzed into the world of Zen, the world of Mo, and the world of human beings. Women in the world of Zen, the world of Mo serve as assistants to help Dang Sae-ah win the war, while women in the human world meet Dang Sae-ah and grow into heroes. Chapter 3 analyzed the novel meaning of female character through values and beliefs pursued by women. The women in the novel are not ideal women in feudal society. DangSai‘er is socially in a higher position than men, and no other women also give up their lives to confront their husbands or protect their chastity. The female character in the NvXianWaiShi is not suitable for feudal society. It is possible to create this female character because the most important value in the novel is 'Royalty'. The war between DangSai'er and King Yeon is not a battle between victory and defeat, but to correct the reversal of ’忠‘(loyalty) and ’逆 ‘(revolt) This is the realization of justice, and the process for the realization of loyalty. The female character in NvXianWaiShi was created by the author to realize ’忠‘.

『여선외사』는 청대에 창작된 백화장편소설이다. 본 논문은 이 소설이 ‘정난지변’을 소설의 주요 플롯으로 차용하면서, 전쟁을 이끄는 주체로 남성이 아닌, 당새아와 다양한 여성인물들을 전면에 내세운 점에 주목했다. 그리하여 먼저 소설 속 다양한 여성형상을 인물이 속한 세계에 따라 선계, 마계, 인간계로 나누어 특징을 분석한 후, 여성인물들의 가치와 신념이 작동하는 방식의 고찰을 통해 이러한 여성형상이 갖는 소설적 의미를 살펴보고자 한다.
