A study of power space and spiritual space in Never Let Me Go focuses on the power space and spiritual space and their sources. Using Foucault’s space theory, this paper reveals the survival dilemma faced by modern people, awakens us intoxicated in the world appearance, and lets us rethink the “abyss” of current and future life and make changes.
