Every disaster outbreak in human history has either implicitly or explicitly promoted literary creation. The new epidemic sweeping today has become a great catastrophe common to all humankind since the new century. Under the epidemic, what does literature do? It is an inevitable question that must be answered in the post-epidemic era of literary transformation. Therefore, this paper, while feeling grateful for literature’s eagerness to respond to the call of reality and intervene in human psychological healing, creatively uses the concept of human destiny to look at the empirical and theoretical expansion of disaster narratives, explores the comprehensive and diversified expression of such “epidemic” themes in literary creation, and considers how to write about disasters while taking into account aesthetics In addition, we explore the comprehensive and diversified expressions of such “epidemic” themes in literary creation, and consider how disaster writing can take into account the three essential dimensions of individual trauma, collective experience, and identity construction while taking into account aesthetics, to continuously rewrite and even expand the connotation of epidemic literature and actively promote the literary turn in the post-epidemic era.
