Since he died young, Wang Xiaobo’s works have been widely commented by the literary circle and mass media home and abroad with different opinions. But the current research tends to simplistic. Most commentators only focus on his novel creation and the media imagination and cultural analysis of "the phenomena of Wang Xiaobo", while few make further exploration of his essays. Even if there is some exploration, the comments on the ideology are far more than that of the literary value. In fact, Wang Xiaobo is famous for his essays, and the wide spread of his ideology has close relation with the unique style of his essays. Regarding the current situation of "valuing novel more than essay, valuing contents more than form, valuing ideology more than style", the thesis, based on the former researches, tries to return to the fact and make an overall exploration of his essays from the style to the ideology. It expects to reveal the unique charm of the essays by research integrating contents and form, and at the same time get rid of the malpractice and perfect the current situation of research on Wang Xiaobo.The thesis maintains that Wang Xiaobo’s essay creation always has consciousness and pursuit of the style and the ideological value of his essays is contained in the fresh and unique style. It is divided in to four chapters.The introduction is about the remarks of the current situation of researches on Wang Xiaobo and the significance of the research in this thesis.The first chapter analyses Wang Xiaobo’s thought of "passive liberalism" from the typical paragraphs and the sentences begun with "I".The second chapter narrates that the experiences and reflection of "the Great Cultural Revolution" are the main resources of the creation of his essays. Taunting "revolutionary words" is the major way for Wang Xiaobo to criticize the autocracy and analyze the history.The third chapter discusses that Russel’s experience rationality and the western resources taking "science" as the center have profound influence on the logical expounding, thinking mode and language system of Wang Xiaobo’s essays.The fourth chapter makes further discussions of the satirical art of analyzing the history by Wang Xiaobo’s essays from the two aspects of the "visualization" of the logical thinking and the "ridiculous" language.The conclusion concludes that in spite of the shortcomings, Wang Xiaobo’ essays have unique sociological and aesthetic value. The comprehensive analysis and research on the style and ideology of his essays not only annotates the phenomena of Wang Xiaobo from another point of view but also presents more clearly the significance of him as a writer of novels and essays in the circle of Chinese contemporary literature.
