Abstract

In the history of literature and film, there are many cases of "absence" of characters. Although the characters are not present in the narrative process, this doesn’t indicate the lack of the meanings of the absent characters. In the process of reading and watching, the receiver can still perceive the bearing of the symbolized invisible characters through the information expressed in the text.
