Literature is the art of fiction, is the unification of authenticity and assumption (fiction).Literature is fictional, many writers and literary Theorists call it LIES. But what the distinction between this "lies" and generalized "lies" is, where the boundary is, what its relationship with fiction is, and what its role is, has hardly been clearly put forward. When scholars study on specific literary works, always habitually to give some part as the name of "lies", and never dig into what the meaning of "lies" is they write down, so we must make a definition of lies in the literature.Lies can’t equate with fiction, and by no means is a simple simulation of reality. It is full of imagination and reconstruction. Literature can break the bondage of "life style" through lies, and present a more profound inner truth of life. Its description is not the fact, but it happened according to the inevitability and probability. This thesis will explore the operation mechanism of the lies in literature lies through its principle, constraint rule (applicability) and aesthetic value.
