The paper deals with the problem of translation rendering for the title of the medieval Chinese treatise on theory of literature Wen Xin Diao Long (V—VI A.D.) by Liu Xie (C. 465—622). The title has been rendered in many different ways by different scholars, but these interpretations either do not comply with the grammatical system of Ancient Chinese and Russian (or any other target European language), or fail to reflect the philosophical ideas of the treatise author correctly.
