Abstract
Narrative time now plays an increasingly important role in literary criticism. As one of the masters of modern Japanese literature, Natsume Soseki broke the traditional linear narrative mode, and used nonlinear narrative time, durations combined fast and slow speeds, frequencies alternated with simple and repeated paces, and paid attention to psychology time in his novel The Gate. This kind of narrative time mode can vividly reflect characters' mental states, and deepen the themes of literary works. It inspires readers to think and choose, and has profound guiding significance for social ethics.
