Abstract
The Western comparative literature theory is mainly to conduct practical research under the homogeneous Western civilization. On the contrary, the lack of effective theory applicable to cross-civilization studies has obstructed global scholars for a long time. The Variation Theory proposed by Chinese scholars provides an effective solution to this problem. This theory emphasizes heterology in the comparison of different literatures and discovers the genesis mechanism of heterologic literary phenomenons in cross-civilization study. The Variation Theory meets the needs of studying heterologic civilization literature in the era of deep globalization as well as provides a new approach for the development of comparative literature in the world today.
