Chapter one Introduction 

Subjunctive  mood  expresses  counterfactual  facts,  including  a  main  clause  and subordinate clause. Usually considered only a grammatical phenomenon, it is in fact adopted as  a  writing  skill  to  express  some  certain  value  and  humanistic  thought  in  literary  works.  There  are  studies  on  it  from  grammatical  and  pragmatic  perspectives.  And  gradually,  many scholars pay attention to it from cognitive ways to study its meaning construction, but few of them  attempt  to  link  it  with  literary  works,  where  meaning  constructions  has  its  uniqueness. Since conceptual blending theory has dynamic properties and a particular process of meaning construction, the author shows a lot interests in association it with subjunctive mood and what intensively  appeals  to  the  author  is  the  unique  features  of  meaning  constructions  in  literary works. In  the  1990s,  Fauconnier  put  forward  conceptual  blending  theory  which  is  one  of  the newest  theories  in  the  field  of  western  linguistic  and  has  a  pushing  drive  in  cognitive linguistic.  The  theory  is  so  powerful  in  explaining  that  various  scholars  at  home  and  abroad show  a  lot  interest  to  it.  And  they  has  proved  its  forceful  explanatory  power  in  many perspectives,  however  few  of  them  have  tried  to  analyze  the  subjunctive  mood  in  literary works comprehensively and systematically associating with this theory. Therefore, this thesis will  attempt  to  apply  the  conceptual  blending  theory  to  analysis  of  subjunctive  mood  in literary works and try to associate linguistic with literature. 

1.1 Background of the Study 
There  are  a  great  many  discussions  about  subjunctive  mood  of  English  grammar,  and different people have different ideas and attitudes on it, so it becomes a controversial one in English  language  since  it  is  here.  For  non-scholars,  we  come  to  it  in  the  course  of  English learning and we usually are confused about it. For scholars at home or abroad, they state their different opinions towards subjunctive mood in regard to its classification, understanding and its  meaning.  And  many  scholars  study  its  functions  from  different  theories,  and  a  few  try  to dig  out  its  cognitive  mechanism  from  different  perspectives.  All  studies  attempt  to  make subjunctive mood understood easily. As  we  all  know,  the  importance  of  subjunctive  mood  gradually  lost  its  inflection  with evolution  of  history,  and  many  people  think  that  this  grammar  does  not  worth  studying  for there is little use. There are studies about the usage of subjunctive mood in English fiction and they find that different writers in different periods choose different expressions of subjunctive mood  an
