The "Triple Space" in the Novel Creation of "New Northeast Writers"

The "New Northeast Writers Group" is a group of young writers in recent years, represented by Shuang Xuetao, Ban Yu, and Zheng Zhi, who have written the common painful memories of several generations in Northeast China with a "distinct realism style" and innovative novel creation techniques. These writers' works have been very popular among readers and critics in recent years.Their creations break away from the paradigm of nostalgic cultural writing in traditional regional literature, focusing on the contradiction between regional growth and people's development under the development of the times. They use a cold and realistic style to describe the dilapidated factory buildings, the people who experience spiritual collapse after experiencing great changes in life, the fatalistic "intergenerational conflicts" and suspenseful cases, and record the joys and sorrows of a group of workers in Northeast China from a micro level, records the joys and sorrows of a group of Northeast workers in an era. This article applies Lefebvre's spatial theory to explain the multiple spatial systems in the novel creation of the "New Northeast Writers" and summarizes the three literary spaces involved in the creation of this literary group, namely "physical space represented by factories and workers' spatial practices", "representative daily living spaces such as Workers' Village and Yanfen Street", and "symbolic spiritual spaces such as plains and swimming pools".
