Landscape is often taken as a signifying system that conveys symbolic cultural implications which would transform with different generations and various interpretations made by authors/subjects. Huqiu (虎丘), as a prominent public garden and entertaining space for literati in middle Ming dynasty, had been continuously rewritten. The landscape of Huqiu was a significant symbolic figure for the literati community of Wu province, indicating a unique sensitivity of being, emotional patterns of daily life, socio-cultural constructions, and traces of transition throughout history. Considering aspects as landscape writing and humanistic construction,multiple mediation and carnivalesque entertainment, and literati community and landscape re-creation, this paper analyses how the middle Ming literati community, with discursive practices such as literature and painting, provided the suburban public garden Huqiu a new aesthetic form, social connotation, and cultural function. Along with motion and performance of body, evocation and dialogism of memory, projection and recognition of emotion, transformation and renovation of fashion, how did the literati community shape the space of Huqiu, a suburban public garden, as an important cultural landscape, and bestow new cultural interpretation and humanistic construction on it? How did cultural landscape and movement of body space define each other and correlate? How did the cultural landscape and the public garden outlook of Huqiu being verified and rewritten with assembly of different communities, drive of consumer culture, and assist of material condition? In general, this paper argues how the cultural writing of Huqiu landscape and humanistic construction of public garden by the middle Ming literati were performed as a thinking pattern and conceptual value held by authors / subjects, how they represented constructive qualities of society and identity of community, and how they presented vivid local characteristics and particular life styles.
