The Relevance Theory says that human cognitive context includes logical information, lexical meaning and encyclopedic knowledge. To Chinese readers, this is a great work describing a lonely traveler on the road, far away from home. With 28 characters, the lyric presents 11 images which are arranged elaborately despite their seemingly casual juxtaposition so that the individual scenes are incorporated to emphasize melancholy and gloominess. Among the nouns composed by 18 characters in the first three sentences, there is not a single verb as connection. The first two sentences describe the physical scenery while the third one is a self-portrait of the traveler. The three imageries are combined to vividly depict the sharp isolation and loneliness experienced by the traveler. The last two sentences express the traveler’s feelings when facing the lonely and silent setting sun associated with a dead end in the traveler’s life. Such images as the withered vines, old trees, evening crows, the ancient road, the bony horse, and the setting sun, including their shapes as well as colors, are infused with the sorrows of the traveler roaming about in a remote place: consequently, the artistic conception is developed out of the blending of emotion with scenery.
