Generally, there are two kinds of images managed in a literary work; i.e., objects and affairs. It is common to capture the image of an object such as the image of bamboo and the image of the moon, etc. On the other hand, literary works rarely deal with the image of affairs, for example, the image of departure, the image of retreat, and so on. However, these differences are limited to narrow perspective. In this article, the author attempts to broaden the aspects in a systematic way to discuss images related to the art of writing. According to the form, logic and complex thinking, the images can be classified into four levels: formation, expression, organization, and integration. Each level is related to the connotation of the art of writing and coincides with "multiple, binary, and unitary (zero)" structure. In this context, it is clear that images (including narrow sense and broad sense) are the subjects of writings. The writing will be dull if it is lack of images. Images are closely related to the art of writing.

Keywords:the art of writing; image (formation, expression, organization, and integration); "multiple, binary, and unitary (zero)"
