The essay brings to the fore the five bijis (notes) accomplished in Yuexi (Guangxi nowadays) during the Ming period, the Chi-Ya by Lu Kuang, the Jiaonan Suoji by Jun Wei, the Junzitang Ri Xun Shoujing by Ji Wang, the Guangzhiyi by Shixing Wang, and the Bai Yue Fengtu Ji by Zhaozhe Xie. Our focus lies equally on these bijis’ (notes) (the Chi-Ya above all) knowledge coverage, contextual environments, representation skills, and their influence on the readers. Such scrutiny helps to reconstruct the life experience of Yuexi local officials and travelers, and thereupon leads us to appreciate the literary significance in these bijis (notes). After scrutinizing such details as the depiction of the space, the people, and the natural wonders (of Yuexi), the essay further identifies the bijis’ (notes) contextual environments, knowledge-transmitting function, and also their writing modes. This is where we get to reevaluate knowledge and how “writing” can be viewed and to rethink the possibilities of literature research. Therefore, we believe that this essay may not only contribute to the study of the Southwestern literary sphere, but it may also reveal the knowledge-transmitting function and the long shrouded literary imagination behind the genre of bijis (notes).
