Abstract


Chi Zijian’s novels are strewn with images which have become hot topic for researchers of Chi Zijian. But so far there have been few studies specializing in the images in Chi Zijian’s novels, while the existing ones are lack of systematic, multi-angle and integrated way of thinking. This thesis is intended to investigate the features, realizations and connotations of the core images in Chi’s novels with the aim of appreciating classical aesthetics, romanticism and modernism embedded in Chi’s novels. Based on that, the question of how Chi’s novels realized the continuation and transformation of classical spirits and established their unique values on the chain of literature history will be explored.The thesis commences with a literature review, identifying the limitations of previous studies on Chi Zijian’s novels. On the basis of textual analysis, the author classified the images into three categories:natural images, images of animal and images of human being.In the first category, the analysis is focused on the functions of these images in constructing artistic imageries and expressing emotions. Images like "forest" and "river" have been studied for their contributions to the atmosphere of the whole novel and the family intentions represented by them. The image of "moon" has been studied to for its classical taste. The image of "kitchen garden" has been studied for modern implication in the death awareness by means of the comprehension of the description of life and death in Chi’s novels.The second category has been probed in two parts. One is the analysis of the metaphorical meaning of substantial animals appeared in Chi’s novels, like cows, ducks, geese and dogs. The other one is the interpretation of unreal "spirits", from which the aesthetic implication combined by classicism and romanticism contained in these imaginary and bizarre images. In the third category, the author approaches the classical spirit of Chi’s novels by investigating three typical images of human being, including the child, the idiot and E’Lunchun. In the conclusion part, the author summarizes the spiritual core of classical aesthetics, the "beauty of harmony". In Chi’s novels there is a persistent pursuit of harmony between nature and man, man and life, ideal and reality, sense and sensitivity. classicality and modernity. She has never evaded impacts from the modern society upon the classical values or the division and darkness of human nature. Chi’s writing appears to be warm and tender, in which she adheres to her positive and healthy values and aesthetic orientation. Being the vehicle of classical aesthetics, the images have expended the imageries of the whole text and enriched the aesthetic tastes of the
