ABSTRACT

This paper mainly studied the ‘desire-salvation’ related structure which appeared in Hong-Ying’s novel K and Ananda . Although K and Ananda are the novels which subject is desire, there are differences in the shape of desire and the process of salvation. The desire of novel K is an illicit love affair which sex instinct takes precedence. The desire of novel Ananda is that love itself degenerates into deformed love, though the love is approved by morals. The process of salvation from these desire also shows up the differences. Regarding K , it is the process of salvation that the extramarital affair of main character changes into love. Regarding Ananda , it is the process of salvation that the corruption of main character returns to innocence by death. Why these process of salvation have to be gone through? How these process mean a salvation? As to K , analyzed it making use of the ‘Instinct and Instinct-Change’ theory of Sigmund Freud. As to Ananda , analyzed it making use of the ‘Death Instinct’theory of Sigmund Freud which is mentioned in ‘Beyond the Pleasure Principle’.
