FROM THE CONCEPT OF SPACE TO LANDSCAPE CRITICISM: A LANDSCAPE STUDY OF “XIANGXI WORLD” WRITTEN BY “COUNTRYMAN” SHEN CONGWEN
The application of Space Theory and Landscape Criticism to literary research, as well as the interaction between space theory and landscape criticism research, has expanded the scope of literary research to a certain extent and made literary interpretation more diverse. It also realizes interdisciplinary research in literary research and plays an important role in the development of contemporary literary theory. Through The Border Town, Shen Congwen has created a series of vivid and unique literary landscapes. That is a “Xiangxi world” which is not only strange but also closely related to the real social space. From the perspective of space, the article systematically decrypts the literary landscape features and landscape creation art in Shen Congwen's novel The Border Town, so as to summarize the author's unique artistic contributions.
