With the new discourse of Guangdong written by Qu Dajun in the Late Ming and Early Qing Dynasties as the core literature, the research not only studied the significance of the geography, material, social economy and people's livelihood of the book, as well as the "practical" meaning of "practical application", but also contains the deep meaning of spiritual externalization. The so-called "externalization" refers to the intention of the cultural teaching that begins with the narrator's "internal/external" discrimination and ends up with "outsourcing internalization”. The whole text mainly prescribes from two aspects: “style and classified catalogue" and "narrative trait and discourse strategy”. First, compare it with the three kinds of old editions of Guangdong Tong Tzi, and grasp the changes of the narrative views and status of "foreign records" in the book, so as to present the "peculiar" and "new" in the style of the new discourse. Second, different from the natural history records and the traditional delineation of Encyclopedias, the narration of new discourse of Guangdong mostly involves the "speaker", and put more emphasis on the expression of self-existence and sense of identity, the character of which is closer to the writing tradition of the metaphor in China and the critical method of praising historical biography. As a result, it is possible to realize the diverse interest of composing new discourse of Guangdong. The final attempt of the article is to cite Qu’s other works to construct a set of "externalized" discourse under the context of intertextual language. At the same time, it also outlines the cultural identity of "southern overlord" in this book, which allows the scholars to observe the diverse implication of the historiography under the change of The Times.
