|Other Abstract||Ma Yuan, one of the most important avant-garde novelists of the contemporary literature in China, has made a valuable contribution to the development of modernist literature in the 1980s. He leads the avant-garde fiction trend and his experimental works have completely overthrown the narrative concept of Chinese contemporary literature. Ma Yuan's pioneering novels are based on the western meta-fiction and show the Chinese writer's self-consciousness and the stylistic awareness. The avant-garde fiction, a clear and unique style of pioneering novel trend leaded by Ma Yuan, overturns the traditional realism literary paradigm and notions.

With regard to the form and contents, Ma Yuan's novels are complex and rich, and his writings provide a panorama of Chinese literary sharp change in the mid-1980s.
Focusing on Ma Yuan's experimental novels in the 1980s from the perspective of modernity, this dissertation studies Ma Yuan's fictional texts and his creation practice with the western meta-fiction theory and conclude his Meta fiction narrative style and technology.
