||This article discusses narration in fiction and attempts to construct a more complete and systematical narrative approach for <i>Hua-che</i>. The discussion includes the narrative perspective, narrative time, narrative plots, narrative structure, and the analysis of characters and dialog. Although Mr. Yu Hua has written so many works, this essay focuses on <i>Hua-che</i> to discuss its distinctive narrative style, including its point of view transitions and plot elaboration.|
The core plot development is linear, and as mentioned above, the character analysis applies the theory of characteristics from E.M. Forster. Whether round or flat characters, they are all deeply presented. The structure of the environment is based on social background and supplemented with the natural environment and material products, which are both subordinate in the story. As the character activities evolve, the presentation approach remains clear, specific and vivid. Finally, the story environments are mostly implied using similes and metaphors. This essay discusses the literary capabilities required for the ideal reader. A narrative model is also established to study the narrative skills and approaches when the narrator is central to the narration.
