Abstract
Learning about culture is an important thing in this fast developing world with more and more communications between members inside. For the official part of culture, it is not difficult to get the needed information; but for the folk part, which is even more important for it agrees more with real life, it’s quite difficult as there’s usual neglect and no systematic recording. Literary works are the best transmission medium of culture. As collection of history and time-tested literary works, literary canons offer an efficient way for tracing information and learning about folk culture. Even though the study of culture is narrowed down to the folk culture in literary canons, it still covers a large scope and contains quite a lot of information. At this critical moment, applying big data into the analysis and studying of folk culture in literary canons would be quite a wise choice.
