Haruki Murakami's creation begins with the acceptance and imitation of the narrative skills of Fitzgerald's novels. Fitzgerald's creative view of style coincides with Haruki Murakami, who also focuses on the introduction and absorption of western literary narrative skills. At the same time, it not only integrates the narrative strategy of Murakami and Western literature, but also highlights the strong characteristics of Western literature.
