Abstract: Chen Cuina was an important woman writer in the firs half of the twentieth century. Her dual practice of novel writing and every life shaped her high-born lady identity and principal figure. Her sense of taking the high-born lady as the principal figure made the theme of her novels being persistent on traditional ethics and reflected the aesthetic style of gentleness and sincerity in terms of art. While the principal figure in her writing was open, Chen Cuina tried to keep both the fame and the substance of her high-born lady identity in all her life. Even though her literature choice and conduct of behavior appeared the same as the traditional high-born ladies, they were quite different in terms of spiritual disposition and thus should not be misled by the story-telling pattern of dichotomy between old and new females.
