ENG-355 | Ancient Eastern Literature

Theme: Harmony and Peacefulness – This is a Start… Get the Message?

As many readers and authors understand, the main objective is to produce the theme (of course). Now, focus on how this relates to the Chinese culture of literature…. Manifestation may require an abundance of good blows to the ego to operate and show face within an individual and/or groups reality. In relation, societies learn this in organizations (e.g., military, congregations, and institutions). Moreover, manifestation is required in high-context environments where the people are more connected by hierarchy where intuitive behavior matches those moments for role playing, and by explaining the hair-raising surroundings, this ultimately augments the receiver of the message. [However, where does the mandated propriety fit?]

2Here is how Miss Cui gets her message across to Zhang: “…I await the moon in the western chamber where the breeze comes through the half-opened door. Sweeping the wall, the flower shadows move. I imagine it is my lover who comes.” And here is another set of lines from Zhen, “faint moonbeams pierce the curtained window/Fireflies glimmer across the blue sky/The far horizon begins to now pale…”

However, communicators represent ideas and proposals without intentions to deceive the audience (receiver)–misrepresenting a superior concept as a default. This ideal method reduces ‘the risk of’ an unfortunate loss of a grand idea that ultimately exists.

In contrast, persuasion haunts everyone within a society. On one hand, vehicles of persuasion are found via television programs and commercials, billboards, in addition to verbal and non-verbal communicative styles [peripheral route to persuasion]. On the other hand, persuasion is presented by specifying arguments [central route to persuasion]. Unfortunately, if the message is not desirable people retaliate in detrimental manners. Conversely, when the message is accepted, members of the society consider the message to be ‘education’ (Evans) Lisa M. Evans, Dr. Evans (Ph. D. Ohio State)–Professor of psychology [Hope College].
