Abstract: Novecento is one of the masterpieces of the Italian writer Alexandro Barrico. The protagonist Novecento's rejection of disembarkation has aroused wide discussion. Many researchers have paid attention to the passive side of Novecento's behavior, which led the researches to slide into childhood determinism. This paper intends to explore the relationship between heterotopia and authoritative space in this play, and attempts to explain that Novecento's rejection of disembarkation is motivated by the power of heterotopia. When authoritative space attempts to invade and control the Other in heterotopia, the Other also endeavored to resist it.

Key words: Novecento, Novecento, heterotopia, authoritative space
