海派、新感覺派的形成以及內在精神皆是建立在城市文化上，都市作家大多具有「沉醉在都會生活中，眷戀著物質享受」基本特質，其生活方式上的特殊性以及見聞反映於作品旨趣。這些都市作家的生活方式既可視為創作時的靈感與影響元素，同時也應該以一種文化實踐看待之。此外，作家身處城市之中，其身分兼具作者/讀者，並且在接受/被接受間不斷轉換，除了與摩登生活互為隱喻外，也與城市和城市民眾共同形塑新女性之形象。因此，結合作家在文本中反覆出現以摩登女性為描述主體，以及由女體所引發一連串想像與焦慮，都需要進一步進行考察和釐清，城市與女體相互疊合後所產生之變化以及其內在動因。 故本文冀望藉由「現代性(modernity)」與「摩登(modern)」間之關係建立起論述架構，為歷來研究海派的領域開展出更完整的面貌與觀看角度，或許我們能更加精確描述這些浸淫在現代化都市的作者，欲藉由文本中呈現出「求新」之意志與風潮，以及上海獨有的「城市文學」。 ;The formation and inner spirit of Shanghai Style and Neo Sensual School are based on urban culture. Most of the urban writers shares the basic idiosyncrasy of intoxicating in urban life as well as sentimentally attaching to fundamental enjoyment, and their works reflect the particularity of their life style and knowledge. The life style of these urban writers can be seen as the inspirations and influential elements during their creation. At the same time, it should also be seen as a sort of culture practise. Moreover, being a writer living in cities, he or she is both a writer and a reader, and continually transforming between "accept" and "being accepted". Besides acting as the metaphor of modern life, writers also reconstruct modern female figure with city and its residents. Hence, combining modern female as the subject which is mentioned repeatedly in texts, and a succession of anxiety and imaginations arose by those women need further inspect and clarify to understand the transformations and inner motivations caused by the mutual superposition between city and female. This article hopes to set up a discourse framework by using the relationship between "modernity" and "modern"to develop a more complete aspect for the field that study on Shanghai Style of all time. Maybe we can describe these author that contaminate in modern cities more directly by the spirit and trend of pursuing new ideas, and "urban literacy" that is peculiar to Shanghai.
