Catherine Anne Porter is one of the most important writers in the south of the United States in the twentieth Century. Most of her novels are based on life, with profound meaning in the rich atmosphere of life. The novel Rope, with a common Rope as a clue, shows a common quarrel between ordinary couples. At present, most of the studies on this novel are focused on the female’s perspective, rhetorical devices, direct quotations and indirect quotations, in order to open up a more novel perspective, to dig deeper meaning of Potter’s novels and to improve the study of space narrative theory. This thesis is based on the interpretation of the novel Rope, which is divided into three parts: First, a brief summary of the previous study of spatial narrative is made in the introduction. Secondly, in the body part, the basic method of spatial narrative theory is used in the body part. The creation of spatial narrative in Potter’s novels and the presentation and significance of spatial narrative theory in the novel Rope are discussed. In the process of space construction in Potter’s novel Rope, it shows the unique artistic charm and artistic effect of the novel.
