Abstract

The ”objects” once collected and recorded in the national archives as historical imprints of times started to be collected, tasted, and appreciated by literati and became their reliance for constructing a detached world in their literary creations and their contexts of literary insights after the Tang Dynasty. What are meanings behind the transformation of objects from ”visual objects” to the more enriched ”cultural insights”, especially in the beginning of portrait and fetishism in the Ming Dynasty when the fad of admiration of ”objects” started? ”Object-appreciation” is originally the earliest identified genre in Chinese literature, for example, articles with large amount of object-chanting or descriptive objects are closely related to visual literary objects, which involve the meanings of object themselves and the visual cultural insights of ”objects”. What are the written meanings of objects in the works of literati from the ”object-recording” to ”object-appreciating” and from the recording to literature? In particular, the writings of subject of ”admiration of object” not only showed up in the culture of admiration in Ming and Qing Dynasties, but can also be found in the works of modern literary writers like Zhou Zuo-ren, Lu Xun, Shen Cong-wen, Wang Ceng-qi, and Zhang Cuo. The ”admiration of object” and ”Object-appreciation” became their way to express their ideas of sequestering themselves from the world. What are the meanings of using ”admiration of literature” as writing methods in modern writings for continuing the object-appreciation tradition?
