Time and space is an important perspective to thoroughly interpret the theme in Hong Ke's novels. In his latest novel The Kalabu Sandstorm, Hong Ke still focuses on the theme of time and space. According to the temporality of natural scenery, Hong Ke highlights the value of natural aesthetic and the true meaning of life, which embodies the mental guidance of returning human beings to their spiritual homes. Also, Hong Ke emphasizes the narrative concept by destroying the traditional linear narrative time. Finally, using a variety of space juxtapositions, Hong Ke presents a persistent pursuit, exploration and closeness to the history and civilization of the western regions, and exhibits his anxiety and meditation over the barren culture consciousness of modern man.
