Pythagorean Cosmology in The Secret Garden

Shenghua YANG


Based on Pythagorean Cosmology, the thesis gives new interpretations of the image of garden in The Secret Garden from the perspective of time and space respectively. Garden, conveying profound meanings and combining macrocosmos and microcosmos, is one of the most important means to achieve harmony and order in infinite time and space in The Secret Garden.
