The Writing of Small Characters in New Immigrant Literature——A Case Study of A Thousand Years of Good Prayers by LI Yiyun

RAN Liqiong;Yangtze University;  
While inheriting the theme of “identity and cultural anxiety” that was a major concern at the end of the last century, New Immigrant Literature has shifted its perspective to the writing of “Chinese stories”. Through the narratives of small characters, it has developed a humanistic approach to writing about the struggles of small characters. Chinese-American writer LI Yiyun's debut novel, A Thousand Years of Good Prayer, is a fantastic example of writing about the plight of the small characters.The author takes the small characters in Chinese society at the turn of the century as the subject of her book, showing the material and spiritual plight of the small characters in the context of the times, and their extremely complicated choices and emotional struggles. This process reflects the physical and spiritual disassociation of the small characters, which is an important content and development trend of New Immigrant Literature.
