L. N. Andreev is a unique and controversial writer in Russian literature at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Some people say that he is good at singing like a nightingale; others say that he exaggerates the darkness and distorts in human nature. His name was once erased by the Soviet literature history. But in recent years, he is rediscovered and researched by Russian literature researchers all over the world. The writer has the courage to try, and his creation involves many genres and themes. But he got famous as a novelist. Among Andreev's numerous novels, his early novels (1895-1910) show outstanding coherence and richness in the theme, which is of unique value to the study of the writer's overall creation system. On the other hand, Russian and abroad academic circles do not pay enough attention to this issue. This paper takes the theme of creation as the starting point, in order to probe into Andreev's early novels, clarify the differences and connections between the writer's creation and the Russian literary tradition, especially the creation of classic writers in the 19th century, and contribute a meaningful material for the study of Andreev in the world
