Since the 1980s, the study of Japanese literature has undergone tremendous changes under the influence of globalization context and western post-modernism theory. For example, some scholars began to question concepts like “self-evident”. There are also some scholars who have made innovative interpretations on such important theoretical issues as globalization and nationalism, tradition and modernity, and the development trend of Japanese literature in the future. This paper combs the relevant expositions of representative theorists in Japan, explains the background of Japanese modern literature from the angle of collision and integration between western culture and Japanese culture, reveals the characteristics of Japanese modern literature, and studies the nature of Japanese modern literature by combining macro and micro.
