ABSTRACT

In literary works, space is not only an element that constitutes a story, but also a framework that reveals the author's thoughts while interacting with characters and events. Conflicts and conflicts based on interests between characters arise and a series of processes to resolve them are included. Chanshe's first full-length novel, "Five spice street" is a work that stands out for the aspect of characters and spaces. The face is an open space where various thoughts and carnival entertainment take place, but it is also a closed space where observations and surveillance of Mrs. X take place. While the innate rejection of unfamiliar and heterogeneous things progresses, it also appears as an ambivalent character that gives in to the strong temptation of heterogeneous beings. The multifacetedness of a space is captured by the other aspects of openness and closure that are immeasurable in one sense.
