Abstract

The seriality, in times and ways typical of the television, has become a defining feature of modern Chinese culture. Written narratives, purposefully created to meet the consumer’s expectations, find in the television storytelling a way to satisfy the needs of the readers. Needs that are largely emotional than intellectual; more visceral than cerebral. The intention of this speech is to elucidate the radical transformation of the notion of writing in the contemporary Chinese literature, whereby books turn into a product comparable to tv series, music videos or even videogames. In order to show this transformation the paper analyses two literary works: The Dialogues according to Yu Dan and Zhou Meisen’s In the Name of People, whose publication has followed the timing of the broadcasting of two television works.
