ABSTRACT

Among modern Chinese writers, Duanmu Hongliang’s narrative style in fictional writing is very unique and stylish. The aim of this article is to explore the audio effect in the narration of Duanmu’s fiction, which is one of his main features and aesthetic styles. Duanmu full utilizes his mastery skill in using the linguistic and rhetoric power so that his fiction contains a special flavor and multi-layered means hidden behind the lines. All the sounds or voices or noises, through using dialects, slang, and the sound of horses, birds, or other natural stuff or man-made noises, indeed creates a variety of polyphonic effects that only exist in a real human and natural world. Such an audio effect via written text offers a special pleasure to reader.
