Austrian novelist Franz Kafka, as a representative writer of European novels in the twentieth century, has been titled by many critics as a nihilist, a realist writer, and the founder of the absurd for the absurd background often constructed in his works and his non-mainstream thoughts. The deconstruction of space in his novels, The Trial and The Castle, makes the story transcend the reality, under which the conventional concepts in the real world are subverted so that readers can understand the spiritual world of the characters more thoroughly. Therefore, the analysis of the deconstruction space in novels and its effects on the metamorphosis of character ideology will unveil to us the survival dilemma and ideological alienation of those modern people who are gradually marginalized. The way and meaning of life will then be understood, which will enlighten people on how to live in this absurd society.
