Abstract: Lu Xun, based on the ultimate idea of enlightenment criticism, takes the daily life with the deepest and most stubborn accumulation of traditional Chinese culture as the object of expression, linking it with trivial, foolish and struggling human beings, and expressing the repeated thinking, empiricism, resistance strategy and path of transcendence of individual daily existence. Through the methods of vague dilution and deepening of touch, the historical significance is dispelled, the time consciousness is desalinated, the nameless status of the characters is strengthened, the traditional daily life is touched, the gentle feeling of empathy is brought into slight ridicule, the humanistic and empirical daily cultural schema is criticized, and the group characteristics of traditional feudal thoughts and national bad habits are presented, which is of great significance to the May 4th Enlightenment at that time and is also of practical significance to the modernization development today.

Key words: Lu Xun’s novels, criticism of daily life, enlightenment
