In the first period of his revolutionary activities, Kim Il Sung keenly felt the importance of ideological work and paid special attention to the education through literature and art.

Chairman Kim Jong Il said.

“Our Party’s revolutionary tradition of literature and art, this deep and strong root and eternal foundation of our Juche literature and art, shines ever more brilliantly thanks to the immortal classics which the leader himself created.”

As written by Kim Il Sung in his reminiscences “With the Century”, the art in the period of the anti-Japanese revolution acted not only as a light which dispels darkness but as drum beats which mobilize the people to the struggle.

It was Kim Il Sung’s principle that a piece of excellent poem, play or story can stir up thousands of the masses and that a revolutionary song can pierce the enemy’s heart even at a place which is beyond the reach of bayonets.

Kim Il Sung wrote himself the immortal classic masterpieces not only in the period of his early revolutionary activities but during the difficult days of fighting a bloody battles against the Japanese imperialists, thus creating a brilliant example of ideological work through literature and art.

During the days of his energetic activities to open up a path of the Korean revolution after forming the “Down-with Imperialism Union”, the first communist revolutionary organization in Korea in October 1926, Kim Il Sung wrote himself the immortal classic masterpieces such as revolutionary song Song of Korea, revolutionary dramas An Jung Gun Shoots Ito Hirobumi, Three Pretenders, Blood at an International Conference and The Mountain Shrine, singing and dancing Pride of Thirteen Provinces and Unity Pole, etc.

Even in the busy days of clarifying the path of the Korean revolution at the historic Kalun meeting held in summer of 1930, revolutionizing rural villages of vast areas and organizing and leading the work of forming the anti-Japanese armed ranks, Kim Il Sung wrote revolutionary opera The Flower Girl and revolutionary drama A Letter from a Daughter.

In the days of organizing and leading the anti-Japanese armed struggle after founding the Anti-Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army in April 1932, Kim Il Sung wrote himself the revolutionary dramas The Sea of Blood, The Fate of a Self-defence Corps Man and Celebrations and the revolutionary songs Song of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army, Song of Anti-Japanese War, Song of “Punitive” Operation, Song of the Sea of Blood and Song of the Ten-Point Programme of the Association for the Restoration of the Fatherland, thus remarkably developing and enriching a treasure house of the Juche literature and art.

Masterpieces of different themes written by Kim Il Sung in the period of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle were not simple works. They were the effective ones that awakened the broad masses to class consciousness and inspired them to the revolutionary struggle, the essence of the revolutionary literature and art and the eternal lifeline that enabled to carry forward the tradition of the Juche literature and art.

That Kim Il Sung created the tradition of the Juche literature and art in the bloody days against the Japanese imperialists is a noteworthy event that ushered in a new era of the development of the Juche-oriented revolutionary literature and art for the first time in the long human history of literature and art and an immortal revolutionary exploit that provided an eternal foundation for guaranteeing the development and flourishing of the Korean literature and art.
