Force and Rhythm of Writing Author: Chu Jung-chih


Force of writing can either refer .to the artistic presentation of the writer's character and talent through words , or the philosophy of life reflected in the literary works. This force is usually closely related with the rhythm pattern of the works, for the creation of literature is the embodyment of the writer's manipulation of words as well as his arrangement of rhythm. If viewed from the perspective of the law of sounds, force of wiriting can mean the arrangement of rhythm. Since written words are the semiotic expressions of sounds, writers can create literary works of various styles by producing sounds of different tones and sentences of all lengths.

Therefore, the purpose of this thesis is to first explore how readers can catch the rhythm of literary works and, then, sympathize with what the writers want to convey.
