Yitong WANG, Dan CUI


The 19th English romantic poet John Keats constructed a large number of spaces to assist the narrative process in his narrative poem Lamia. If we re-analyze this poem from a spatial perspective, we will find that the poet is using spatial changes to promote the development of the storyline, and reflect the protagonist’s mental journey from the subtle changes of the scene. This essay aims to explore the special significance of its spatial construction and its role in promoting the development of narrative, and analyze the power discourse contained in the poem.
