  • Abstract This thesis examines Jin Yong’s martial arts novels under the aspect of national consciousness. It first reviews the historical development of martial arts fiction and discusses when and under which circumstances phenomena like national consciousness, nationalism, and patriotism became essential elements of martial arts fiction. There follows an analysis of seven Jin Yong martial arts novels to point out each novel’s characteristics with respect to national consciousness, and to discuss the changes of the patriotism subject in Jin Yong’s works. Another focus is on the reaction and evaluation of literary critics towards Jin Yong’s works. The author analyses the critics’ attitude to the “Chineseness” of Jin Yong’s novels, and further discusses the Chinese characteristics of martial arts fiction, including a comparison of Chinese martial arts novels and Western adventure novels.
