Reflections on the little reunion

Chapter 1: after reading, I always like to read Zhang Ailing's books. It's deep. Always touch the heart somewhere. In this book, Hu Lancheng undoubtedly appears as the first male protagonist, but no matter when she appears on the stage and how much space she takes up, her interaction with Hu is roughly the same as that described in "this life and this life". She also makes no secret of her infatuation with Hu, but her love affair with Hu has never been malicious. Zhang shows her always superb writing skills. With the delicate technique and sensitive perspective of women's unique and cautious eyes, she vividly depicts the plot of mutual suspicion, mutual disclosure of privacy and intrigue between the characters through trivial details. But no matter how agitated the heart, how unbearable the scene, in her pen is always gentle gently with, but also from time to time with a smile. In this book, many previously unknown secrets about her family, including her parents, her closest aunt and other relatives, are mercilessly exposed one by one. What's more surprising is that her confessions are almost self abusive, which is heartbreaking. Chapter 2: in little reunion, the strong "loneliness" of the protagonist Jiuli is consistent, which can also be said to be the writer's real feelings. According to the memories of her middle school teacher, Zhang Ailing often sat in the last seat in the last row of the classroom, and her clothes were out of fashion. Zhang himself also said in an interview in the future, "I'm used to being lonely. In the past, when I was in college, my classmates used to say - we didn't understand what you were saying." she said, "I often feel like an island.". "I'm surprised that students from Taiwan who study in the United States always find it hard to live in the United States. Maybe they are used to being protected by their families. I've lost my family for a long time. I'm used to being lonely. I feel the same everywhere. Moreover, in foreign countries, I have an excuse to be lonely." Loneliness is the emotional core of the novel. The gap between people's hearts is repeatedly highlighted by Eileen Chang in her book. From Ruiqiu's worry about Jiuli's surprise caused by her contention with her uncle in the future, to Jiuli's isolation and sadness when seeing off Ruiqiu, and to Jiuli's heartbreaking sorrow when she escaped from the air raid: "I almost blew up and a bomb fell on the other side of the street.". She heard her voice telling people in her head. To whom? Is it still Han Ma? Chudi has always been light, will not be a pile of things. Ruiqiu didn't think of it at all. Bibi is always happy anyway, and it's the same when she dies. " When it comes to the love with Zhiyong, Zhiyong tells Jiuli that his first wife is fascinated by a fox spirit because she misses him. She thinks she dreams of him every day, so she dies of tuberculosis. Jiuli's feeling is "he believes in fox spirit! Jiuli suddenly felt that the whole Central Plains was separated between them. The distance makes her palpitation Write about Nanshan. "Jiuli said with a smile," when are you going to get married? " Yanshan laughed and said, "I'm married." At once it was like a river running between them Write Rudi in Jiuli abortion stomachache when the river and sea, also with relish to eat test chicken, also let her eat! The most tragic is the description of the male fetus in the toilet It's the woodcarving bird standing on the door before. "Once a beautiful and short past, she didn't have time to go. Now, her life will disappear in a flash. At that moment, she is the only one left in the world The pain is burning. Zhang tries his best to write this story in plain and natural language, which is ironic! Zhang Ailing mentioned in an article that after reading a dream of Red Mansions many years later, what she got was all the troubles that people felt. This feeling of trouble in her own deepest "little reunion" has been incisively and vividly presented. Some seem to be unintentional misunderstanding, some are intentionally ignored, the same is hurt. The trivial separation between Yong and Ruiqiu and Sangu and Nanshan and rudizuo destroys Jiuli's love, so there is a beautiful dream at the end of the novel, which is the longing for a warm home and stable love. This is what the protagonist Jiuli lacks and yearns for in her whole life. Therefore, after waking up happily for a long time, it is still in vain, and this dream can only be a anxious "wait" "To be continued". Eileen Chang attached great importance to readers in her early writing. While describing what she could write, she also tried to cater to readers' reading psychology. She said, "the article is for everyone to see. It can't be done only by one or two confidants. You can see mine and I can see yours." (on writing). When she wrote love in a fallen city, she wanted to express the love of desolate life. In addition, she wanted "what people want, what they want, beautiful romance, dialogue, color, poetry, and even" consciousness "to be prepared.". "What you want, what you want" is a kind of writing posture that is deeply bound by readers' reading psychology. Zhang Ailing is very clear that "what is difficult for Chinese audiences to deal with is not vulgar taste or poor understanding, but that they are too used to legends" (long live my wife). So she gave them the "legendary" novel they wanted. In her later years, Zhang Ai Ling became famous for her success and changed her mood. She gradually turned from paying attention to readers' reaction in her early years to writing more about herself, which is what she called "debt paying" creation. In 1973, when she was interviewed by Taiwan scholar Jing Jing, Zhang Ai Ling made a real analysis of her current creation: "I write now, it's all debt paying - I owe my debt, Because I once made a wish, I am a sturbborn "Cicada: a night visit to Eileen Chang.". Xiao Tuan Yuan, which was finished in 1976, was written under the mentality of "paying debts to yourself". This writing concept is reflected in the text, and the heroine Sheng Jiuli pays debts twice. One is for mother Ruiqiu, the other is for lover Zhiyong. The money is the same. It's two taels of gold. For Jiuli, these two debt repayments are undoubtedly two great emotional "shocks" -- in fact, "debt repayments" have been lurking in the text, connecting love and not love. For the writer Zhang Ailing, the birth of "little reunion" is a total "debt repayment" of her past life. In the text, Zhang Ailing and Sheng Jiuli are entangled. Outside the text, Zhang Ailing and the former "I" have reached a temporary "Reunion". Chapter 3: in his own article, Zhang makes a detailed analysis of his view on literature and art. "I don't like heroism. I like solemn and stirring, but I prefer desolation. Being strong only has strength, but no beauty. It seems that it lacks human nature. Tragedy, like the supporting role of red and green, is a strong contrast, but its stimulation is still greater than inspiration. The reason why desolation has a deeper aftertaste is that it is like green with peach, which is a kind of uneven contrast. Zhang emphasized the Enlightenment of the work, and also pointed out that the reason why he liked the contrast writing method was that it was closer to the fact. Revelation, desolation and truth are the key words of Zhang's literary and artistic view. Zhang intends to describe the memory of human beings living in all ages by means of uneven contrast. She admits that the characters in the novel have all kinds of obscurity, embarrassment, triviality and loss of face, but she doesn't completely deny or affirm them. She just points out that there is such a person, some people, even for negative characters, try their best to write human feelings without too much condemnation (see the inscription of long live my wife). In little reunion, these people include Jiuli herself, mother, aunt, Zhiyong and so on. Taking Jiuli's memories as the main line is the reappearance of her life experience, during which there is always an awkward disharmony between memories and reality. The image of the characters in this paper is not a sharp dichotomy of good and evil, but a multi-level complex depiction of human nature. Taking the image of Chu Di as an example, in the method of uneven contrast, she not only writes many details, reveals her selfishness and stinginess, which makes Jiu Li feel strongly attached to others, but also writes that she has been beaten for Jiu Li. At the same time, she wrote about Jiuli's indifference and indifference to Chudi, as well as her moving tears and so on. In Zhang Ailing's works, the characters in little reunion are three-dimensional and abundant. In the preface of the lost, Zhang Ailing made the following comments on the novel: "in the communication of words, the novel is the shortest distance between the two points. Even the most cordial prose around, is the attitude of familiar friends, but also always keep a little distance. Only novels can not respect the right of privacy, but not peep at others, but temporarily more or less identify with them. Like an actor immersed in a role, it becomes an experience of his own. The reason why Zhang Ailing did not choose to write prose autobiography, but to write such a novel in the original form of her past experience, can be said, not to cover up and fiction, but more close to the real, under the cover of fiction, more forced to the essence of reality. Zhang Ailing said that the best writing materials are those she is familiar with, and those with real feelings. She may be bewitched by the gorgeous vicissitudes of her life, so she is willing to copy her life like drawing red. The superficial outline is followed by coloring again and again. In the process of copying, the lost life returns to her side bit by bit, the youth reappears, and the pain is inevitable. "Little reunion" is a play written and performed by Eileen Chang. Because she plays herself, the experience becomes more and more profound. When looking for the scenes of passing time, the sweet and painful scenes are all accompanied by the loss caused by the long years. The characters in the book, like those who have nothing to do with herself, try to give full understanding. However, because Jiuli is connected with her blood, this is different from what she wrote The soul encounter of characters is complicated and tangled. Chapter 4: apart from prose, I am familiar with Zhang Ailing's books. Although I can almost recite them, I occasionally flip them. I waited a long time before I decided to buy this little reunion book. The reason is that I am so addicted to Eileen Chang's previous works that I always feel that little reunion will not surpass those before... I have always stressed that what I love is not Zhang Ailing's people, but her stories and her words. So I just need to say, "let's learn about Zhang Ailing's family history and her personality..." I just want to run. I'm a fan of books, not Aileen. It's really boring, so I decided to buy it. When a friend came back, I asked him to bring a copy. Because it's not easy to get, I can really have a good time. As a result, less than one third of them can't help falling in love with it. Yes, I think xiaotuanjuan is not as fluent as Eileen Chang's early works. In the early days of fame, I always spent a lot of time writing. Besides satisfying myself, I also tried to make the story more like a story and make the writing fluent and easy to understand. Little reunion is more like a book that Eileen Chang wrote to herself. It's about writing down all the people she met in her life, venting and recording. Those little things, funny, think about it afterwards, are also very sad, the only not sad is a hammer, pain for a long time. Because I haven't got the book yet
