From the early Tang period to Jiao Ran, the concrete-abstract antithesis was raised, placing the concrete-abstract concept of aesthetics and traditional thought in the antithesis of a poem. However, its standard in Tang was the visibility of an image and the invisibility of color, which they thought was the image that was expressed by poetic language and not the lexicology from linguistics in the common sense. Jiao Ran held the view that scenery, wind, emotion, and color can be paralleled by the abstract or concrete. This further developed the different species antithesis of the early Tang period. It considered the complex situation of a concrete-abstract antithesis in the practice of writing poems and the need of the expression of emotions. Meanwhile it had relation with the literature thought of admiring sublime, naturality, and the poetic quality of flavor. Jiao Ran’s concreteabstract antithesis absorbed certain characteristics of the one-sentence antithesis, and was inspired by the mutual antithesis. From the aspect of writing practice, a process exists to realize this form of antithesis from a dimly understanding to a conscious exploration from the early Tang period to Jiao Ran. The raising of the concrete-abstract antithesis by Jiao Ran can be considered as the regulation and summary of the conscious exploration.
