Lai Ho was the leading figure in the development of new poetry in Taiwan in 1920s during which vernacular Chinese used in poetry was in the initial stage of development. He created very classical works which could foresee the possible scope of vernacular poems. At the same time, he was the chief editor of literature and art column, and study and art column in Taiwanese People's Newspaper and New Taiwanese People's Newspaper. Newspapers and magazines were the two major media of Taiwanese literature during Japanese colonial period and the column of literature (study) and art had significant influence on the literature circle. Lai Ho, as the assessor of literature and art for the two newspapers, had revised and polished those scripts. In the procedure of his delicate and careful adjustment, the aesthetics of style of new literature formed its shape gradually. Therefore, the discussion of the rhetoric sense of Lai Ho who were a poet and an editor of literature and art column of the major newspapers also depicts the sequence of development of the canon of the aesthetics of the new poetry style in Taiwan in 1920s.In terms of the above-mentioned, this article has taken Lai Ho's manuscript of new poetry as research material to view the image establishing and rhetoric sense in Lai's new poetry manuscript by the systematic analysis of rhetoric. Lai Ho very often differentiated the originals, the adjustments, and final scripts by the Chinese writing brush and writing symbols in his manuscript. His notes written on the top of the paper were particular remarkable to best present his strategies on the presentation in the writing and his imagination of modern writing style. This article is therefore going to look into details in Lai's manuscript of the rhetoric procedure as ”original-adjusted-final”. The detailed discussion will be split into two parts. The first part has taken Lai's poems which he focused on anti-colonialism and caring for the minorities as the main body in the discussion, and analyzed his manuscript to view Lai's writing approaches which the past discussions failed to bring up. Secondly, discussion will move to Lai's works with modernist style which were often ignored in the past discussion to view naturally existing potential of modernism language in the poetry creation by vernacular Chinese as well as how Lai's rhetoric point influenced the later trend of the new poetry style and language.
