Abstract:To underline significant aspects of the human condition in imaginative structures, Bunin contrives a properly suitable relationship between "form" and "content" without losing aesthetic effects. With this literary perspective, Bunin consistently attempts to pursue the most fundamental questions of human existence: the questions of freedom and necessity, body and spirit, the eternity of nature and the limited fate of human being on the earth. Throughout his literary career, Bunin endeavors to achieve this literary goal with authentic creativity.
Also, the structural analysis of "form" has a significant meaning in his prose works, because Bunin brought to his works an innovative approach to narrative techniques and the unique building of structure. To intensify the literary effect of his works, Bunin attempts to create the relevant structural "form," which can fit the development of the thematic plot. This kind of structural method is found consistently in Bunin's prose narrative together with various stylistic characteristics. At the same time, to intensify the aesthetic effects in his works, Bunin elaborately uses the lyrical perception of nature, color and mood, and the artistic unity of narrative tempo and tension.
