Saul Bellow holds an important position in the literary field of America. Among his notable literary works, it is Herzog that brought him reputation as a significant figure who has a huge literary influence in American literary history. Herzog is a typical spatial novel. This paper attempts to analyze the paper according to the theory of spatial narrative from three aspects: the topographical level of space,the chronotopic level of space , and the textual level of space. The construction of the text, the presentation of the theme and the interaction between Herzog and the spatial world can be shown through the analysis of spatial narrative in the novel.
