Author: Wang Meng
Keyword: Zhang Ailing, Chinese family novels
Newspapers published: Journal of China Women's University
Issue No. original: 2014(4)
Time strategy in narration is artfully used in Zhang Ailing's Chinese family novels including Love in a Fallen City, The Golden Cangue, Creating Century, Xiao Ai,The Rouge of the North and Small Reunion, so subject matter characteristics of narrative time with anachronism based on flashbacks are formed. These novels also use techniques such as ellipsis, compendium, pauses, tension and scenes to order a relaxed narrative rhythm. In addition, single type, repetition and summaries are mixed together to form narration simple and complicated by turns.These strategies are helpful in establishing narrative time with elasticity and tension, making narrative structure more distinct and reasonable, building narrative ethics more effectively and plentifully, and they play an important role in influencing readers' ethical situations.
