Images are stratified by means of formation, expression, organization and integration. In literary works this refers to the organization of writing, which involves certain logical rules or regular patterns, for example, the dualism of “concept” and “form.” The basic types of image arrangement include “shift” and “transfer.” When the skill of “shifting” is employed in writing, it may be that “the form comes first and the concept follows” or vice versa. In terms of “transfer,” the pattern could be “concept - form - concept” and so on. Based on these basic types, this article discusses the related theories of image arrangement, explores the art of writing, and highlights the aesthetic effects.
