Abstract

Khitan people moved their dynasty from east to west, and eventually established the Western Liao Dynasty in the multi-ethnic areas of Central Asia. It continued the part of the Liao Dynasty, which was destroyed by the Jin Dynasty of Nvzhen people, and brought the northern culture of China to Central Asia. It was an important period in which Chinese culture influenced Central Asia and even Eastern Europe in history, and also a period that Chinese eastern culture greatly melted with Chinese western culture in history. Western Liao has a great influence on the world's cultural history, and it also enabled the western world to learn more about China. The literature bred in such a cultural soil is necessarily the interwoven literature of multi-ethnic cultures. We can see the general composition of the literature of the Western Liao Dynasty by investigating the history, jurisdiction territory and national culture of the Western Liao Dynasty. From the language and writing used in the Western Liao Dynasty, the literature of the Western Liao Dynasty can be divided into Chinese, Khitan, ancient Uyghur (Turkic) and other languages. From the cultural tendency, the literature of the Western Liao Dynasty includes political, religious and folk secular works. From the stylistic point of view, the literature of the Western Liao Dynasty takes poetry as its main body.
