|Other Titles:||“Image Cannot Completely Express Affect” in the Organization of Writing--The Example of the Jiao-Sheen's Chi|
Office of Research and Development
There is a very close relationship between the organization of writing and the use of “imagery.” Indeed we can foreground the role of “image” in the analysis of literary content and structure. For example, “feeling” and “reason” can be seen as images of “meaning,” and “matter” and “scenery” as images of “image.” Since the author's knowledge/experience, the language of the text, the literary meaning or connotation of the text and its Dao can never be known or understood completely, the “image” and “meaning” in one sense must always remain “blank.” These can only be recreated through the reader's intelligence, imagination, knowledge and receptivity to the text. Only then can the “beauty” of the text be clarified, made clear. Therefore this dissertation begins from the standpoint of both author and reader. Furthermore, I make use here of the role of the Jiao-Sheen's Chi in order better to exemplify the aesthetic theory set forth here, and more specifically to show why “image cannot express affection completely.”
