Abstract


Saul Bellow is an important postwar Jewish writer in American. The main characters in the novel are Jewish intellectuals. In its sixty years of writing career, Bellow created a series of vivid intellectual groups. As a group of people full of sensitive soul and humanitarian ideals, intellectuals described by Bellow are filled with the ideal of good living. They are the idealist of life and the vagrant in real life, experiencing both body and spirit wandering. Wandering became a constant lifestyle. The career and love of intellectuals described by Bellow have experienced serious setbacks in real life and were hit into pieces in the face of reality.Intellectuals described by Bellow had a serious mental crisis and suffered the hardships of life because of both the subjective and objective reasons. They can not find the purpose and meaning of life in real life. Their lonely hearts could perch nowhere. Because of the lost values and loneliness emptiness, Intellectuals described by Bellow were in the plight of spirit crisis, constantly haunted by loneliness, anxiety and sufferings, but they never gave up the efforts of self-rescue: to regain their love and warmth by experiencing the meaning of life in family and love; or to return to the true nature by achieving the sameness of nature and human mind and driving away the troubles of life; or to be immersed in arts and writing, by maintaining contact with the world through the means such as letters and diaries, finding a place to habitat for their spirit and soul in the art world.
