Dancer in Postmodern Country Philosophy

  Since the 1990s, the development of Chinese prose has increasingly shown a trend of diversification, the subject matter and theme have been greatly expanded, and the innovation of artistic techniques has also given prose a new aesthetic form. Taking this as an opportunity, some scholars put forward the concept of “new prose in the 21st century” and listed Liu Liangcheng and other newly emerging young prose writers as representatives. In fact, this change in prose creation and aesthetics, as well as the overall “rejuvenation” of prose, is not only promoted by individual prose masters, but with the aesthetic needs of the entire era and the silent and fruitful artistic efforts of many prose authors Inseparable. In my opinion, Yu Lan, a young female writer in Shandong, is also one of the more diligent and diligent in the current prose writers. Her new collection of prose, “Sound in the Trees”, has a relaxed narrative, plain language and clear language. In the memories and dreams of her childhood, she began to narrate rural narratives, expressing the delicate texture of things. Unique innocence and magnificence.
  As an introspective literary creator, Yu Lan has the keenness and compassion peculiar to female essayists. Her words are not flaunting, rather like a humble “inquirer” and “listener.” She has her own unique thinking on the living land with simple rural philosophy. She not only outlines the mountains, water, villages and other landscapes of Gaotang in her hometown with simple lines, but also describes the remoteness, poverty, and mystery of reality with simple brushwork. Romantic folklore. Her simple and rich life experience comes from villages and fields. She discusses the life and death of Chinese peasants on the vast earth, and solemnly reveals the simple truth of rural life. However, the village described by Yu Lan is not only an idyllic utopian presentation, but also contains a unique way for a female writer to understand the world in a rapidly developing industrial society. In utopian pastoral writing, her prose is full of nostalgia for the countryside and exclusion from the city. The village is integrated into the writer’s life in the form of memory. In the village’s memories, the world’s honor and shame, desire and the dignity and struggle of life have all become a subjective interaction and existence relationship. She saw a fate of human migration in the changes of the countryside; she saw a relativistic philosophy of life in the trivial and peaceful life of the countryside; she found herself in the memories of the countryside; her legend in the countryside And fairy tales. In the book “Sound Among the Trees”, the city is nothing more than a larger country, and the country is nothing more than a luxurious dream for the urban people to play like cattle. In the memories of the country, she understood the world.
  In this chapter of “Village verbs”, the writer reproduces and recalls the actions of the village in memory through a series of actions such as “catch, walk, live, watch, sing, grow, bloom”, showing the most basic dynamics of rural survival. expression. For example, “catching” represents the joy and self-sufficiency of the villagers when they rallied; “walking” contains the author’s heartache and nostalgia for the sister who ran away from home; “live” is an understanding of the aunt’s insistence on the autonomy and personality of the aunt; “Seeing” is a tragedy of uncle’s adultery in the village; the four uncles in “Singing” are suppressed by the power of the captain, but he never gives in and can only express his inner grief by singing; “Standing” The pose of a vicissitudes of the old woman in the photo confirms the suffering and helplessness on this land; the two most common states on the land are written in “flowering” and “growth”, full of tenderness. Compared with the dynamism of the “Verb” chapter, the other chapters are more about the meticulous and meticulous observation of the still life of rural life by the writer. The lines are filled with the general love and awe of nature in Insect Diary. Silence, dwelling, loneliness, and memories are not only the living conditions of the writer, but also the inner philosophical tone of the entire prose. It is the memories in the quiet and lonely settlement that make living in the countryside into a “poetic habitat” of post-industrial society. It not only has childhood funny things, beautiful memories, but also the reproduction of people in the countryside, the experience of the living conditions in the countryside, the thinking of the grass and the trees in the beautiful agricultural nature, and the understanding and transcendence of the rural worldly sentiments, sadness and joy. .
  The article “Words Like Flowers” is divided into several subsections such as jujube flowers, radish flowers, and sunflowers, etc., and narrates the habits of various flowers in detail and interestingly, as well as the stories hidden in the flowers. For a long time, in the field of prose, various philosophical tendencies have been interpreted. The erudition and deepness of scholars’ prose finally turned to the self-righteousness of dropping the book bag, and the lyrical expression also inadvertently departed from the sincere tradition of prose feelings, towards pseudo-sublime and false lyric. After reading Yu Lan’s “Sound Among the Trees”, you will like her quiet and open text, yearning for the unknown date forest, small village, and Qingping Town, full of joyful and sad memories. It is a perceptual world, a mysterious world, a world full of sounds and colors, and full of nature and life. That pure scene that seems to have undergone the “reduction reaction”, the village that has been neglected for a long time because we have turned a blind eye to those ordinary people and things, let us truly touch the dignity of life through the rough and desolate years. With warmth. Maybe, as Yu Lan said, “An essay is a memory, like an abandoned waterwheel in the countryside. It shows the time and years. It has both lost solemnity and an untamed self-pity and arrogance. There However, the wind is always simple and trivial. Everyone is facing their own suffering, that is, facing their own loneliness and pain. “In the loneliness and pain of life, Yu Lan finally sublimated his creation with prose. Passion made the bright rainbow in the sky.
  One piece of “Qu Chenhua” in this prose is a sublimation part of her prose works, which is enough to show her true colors. “Qu Chenhua” originally meant that the essence of tea leaves, that is, the large and small “foam flowers” in the water when the tea is boiled with water (the prose collection “Sound in the Trees” is also the essence of contemporary prose works). The article contains nine independent and interrelated short chapters, like a scroll with light brush strokes on a single axis, inadvertently unfolding a “nostalgic ancient nostalgic map” that crosses ancient and modern, false and real. Based on the rereading of The Water Margin, express the classic feelings, sing the rhyme of the Book of Songs, and explain the landscape paintings of the Song and Ming Dynasties, collage ancient landscapes with today’s lotus and jujube forests, and combine Cao Zhi, Wang Xizhi, Gu Kaizhi, and Schneider The “Qu Chenhua” turned into a curvy stream in this world. After reading this article in Lan, often feel time and space are intertwined, and there are many poetic and artistic expressions, as the “Lan Ting Collection Preface” said: “Looking up at the universe and looking at the prosperity of the category. So you can see with your eyes, enough to be extremely audiovisual entertainment, believe Cola too. ”
  This collection of essays can also be seen in Lan’s skill. She has her own interest and understanding of what she wants to express. With her imagination and understanding of life and words, she has further established her own unique expression style and Language charm. Yu Lan is a dedicated writer. This attachment was sometimes as emotional as tormenting her insomnia. The publication of this essay was a particularly valuable event for her.
