Repetition is an artistic creation technique with aesthetic characteristics. In the text, it is embodied in the pursuit of time, image and other aspects. J. Hillis Miller, a famous American scholar, said: "any novel is a complex organization composed of repetition and repetition in repetition, or repetition connected with other repetition in the way of link.". A close reading of Ran Chen's novel Private Life shows that the repetition of details, the reproduction of image setting and the repetition of plot arrangement all highlight the characteristics of repetition and difference, which makes the text have a unique narrative aesthetic meaning.
