The main content of enlightenment is concluded to be Utilitarianism, Nationalism and Individualism. Among these initial literature theory,some were shown by the way of New/old Literary Fliting, with strong character of discourse. Therefore, after analyzing the structure of discourse in this essay, it is found that Utilitarianism is constructed on dualistic structure of New/Old; Nationalism discusses the function of literature by separating Self/Others; Individualism approving forthright, sincere and feeling of literature expression, makes opposition of True/False of personal emotions,meanwhile, emphasizing fictional and imaginary properties in formalism. Building three characters through these three opposing structure, contains meanings below over Taiwan and World historical development of literature. First,accepting modern concepts and values and giving criticism of traditional word and literature presented anti-feudal and modernity. Second, combining literature and nation fate under Taiwan’s unequal colonial status and situation not only showed the anti-imperialistic character but also reflected the universal modern appearance of the time on effort of build up national literature. Third, the discovery of personality and selfhood in Individualism as well as unique cognition of literary expression, had pushed practical literature theory to an art level, and emerged the modern character of literature.
