ZENG Wen-xin;School of Literature, Shandong University;  
Cold and hot, originally used to describe temperature and human sense, have been introduced into literary theory and have been expanding their application fields. Finally, they have shown strong functions in the aesthetic criticism of novels. They are used to convey the cold and hot narrative scene, indicate the narrative hot spot conversion, convey the cool world, show the author's position, and or to realize the multiple functions all above. Relatively speaking, in the aesthetic evaluation of novels, “cold” is more frequently used. From this, it can be seen the inherent aesthetic bias of Chinese novel texts. It also shows the philosophical implications such as “Tao gives birth to all things” and the author's preference for cold creative attitude.
