Hemingway’s short story Cat in the Rain highlights the themes of the novel with a large number of spatial images and depicts the connotation of gender conflict. As an extension of the study of space criticism, this paper analyzes the abstract meaning of landscape space, social space and individual space in Cat in the Rain, interprets the characters’ thoughts and feelings, as well as explains the complex mentality of the female character’s desire, courage, failure and return exposed in the process of her pursuit of self and freedom. Hemingway’s skillful grasp of women’s psychological reality can be proved through detail analysis.
