"Yimu Tie" is one of Wang Xizhi's early works. When the author is learning the introduction of calligraphy, he has some understanding and understanding of the glyph structure of "Yimu Tie". Although we can't be sure whether Wang Xizhi designed every word with great care, every line, every word, every stroke in his prose is worthy of further investigation. There are many "contradictions" in the cadence between the lines, and it is this relationship of both opposition and unity that makes "Yimu Tie" have a unique beauty. They are like a treasure, attracting people to continue to mine. This paper mainly analyzes and probes into the form structure in Wang Xizhi's "Yimu Tie".
