How did the light and shade in prestige of literary work come into being? This question needs tracking back to its root. The literary work is silent, but receivers make it speak. The receivers give meanings to literary work, so the destiny of literary work is decided by receiver’s explanation. Generally speaking, the tastes of age and critic’s opinions may influence receiver’s explanation. Therefore, comprehension is relative, and former explanations on the literary work are not our barrier in comprehending them. On the contrary, it provides us with resources for comprehension. Thus, literary research should have the visual angle of reception history: searching the meaning connection between all kinds of comprehensions and digging out the literary work which really have the art life.
