  •  Yue Hu    


Spatial narrative is an emerging theory of Narratology since Joseph Frank proposed it in 1945. Point Omega is one of Don Delillo’s work, completed in 2010, mainly tells stories about two persons: a nameless person alone in museum exhibition hall to watch a silent film and a high-level war adviser Richard Elster, away from the city in seclusion in the desert. This paper use spatial narrative to analyze the theme of Point Omega, which is divided into four parts: the first part briefly introduces spatial narrative and Point Omega; in the second part, the literature in China and others of spatial narrative and Omega Point are reviewed; in the third part, the text is interpreted from three aspects of spatial narrative, physical form, text structure and narrative perspective; the fourth part summarizes how the novel reflects the influence of the concept of time on people’s lives.
