Tzuoo-Chwan, Tzuoo Chiu-ming's Chronicles, is composed of detailed accounts and comments on historical people and events with judgmental points of view which clearly discern good from evil with merits and demerits systematically and comprehensively. Tzuoo Chiu-ming made it clear in his chronicles that his viewpoints were based on facts and trends. In a nutshell, what he presented and rendered in "Tzuoo-Chwan" is not exactly the social phenomena in unison although he grounded his arguments on the same templates in which people conducted themselves back then. The cultural rendition of polyphonic heteroglossia is what I try tentatively to explain how historical and cultural phenomena presented themselves. By using Bakhtin's theory, I tend to show that cultural phenomena refer to independently clear voices which could be deemed as the valuable authentic heteroglossia in chorus with a multitude of ideologies. In my opinion, Tzuoo Chiu-ming's accounts and comments presented a phenomenon which showed the conflicts of politics, ideology, history and culture. He described Xia-Ji, a drop-dead gorgeous woman who brought a lot of trouble simply because of her beauty, by means of people's gossip on the grapevine in stead of gathering the information straight from the horse's mouth. Using the aesthetic term "image", I would like to explain that some "facts" are fabricated by analogy. As we look at ourselves or others in the mirror, Tzuoo Chiu-ming made Xia-Ji an artistic archetype, an image in his world of concepts. I will, therefore, use his plots, descriptions of characters, contexts concerning Xia-Ji in "Tzuoo-Chwan" to transform her stereotype and some uniform judgments set by previous commentators into my personal paraphrases of multi-aspects.
