Literature Ontology in the West experienced a long process of evolution, its evolution and the evolution of philosophical ontology related. Open the History of Western Aesthetics, we can find different thinking of literature ontological, such as the imitation of the ancient Greek poetics theory of the symbols of the Middle Ages and Modern Poetics reproduction and performance. All of these doctrines and theories want to answer \The first part of this article first combing modern Western aesthetics learned ancient Greek poetry Literary Ontology of Literature Ontology views of each period as well as the presence of defects and deficiencies that they only reveal certain aspects of literature and art, a the nature of the hierarchy can not summarize the essential characteristics of the literature as a whole.
