Hanging “people tree”

People are like flowers and trees on the earth. They should have lived poetically in their homes in the soil and moonlight. However, with walking legs and unlimited desires, they set off from the countryside, their homeland, or their hometown, or live in the city or go In the distance, a group of desperate homeless people became a tree of people hanging in the air. This is the face of many people who have left their hometowns at the moment, and it is also the “real image” of the times drawn by Wang Zhezhu in “Hermitage Times”.

The novel outlines a nomad’s sojourn career based on the “I” growth process. When the family entered the city, they rented in the shantytown. The damp, dark and narrow space could not settle the “I”. Just like the “I” when I was a kid, I could only hide in the mud house, so “I” was repeatedly I stayed at a relative’s house. Although I was relatively stable after going out to study and live in school, my homelessness during the winter and summer vacations and school rebuilding made me lose my place again. Here, the story of entering the city is focused on the spiritual narrative of the existence of this body. Hometown or hometown appears in many respects, such as “zhaizi”, “hometown”, “mud house”, “castle”, “bed of collective dormitory”, “dormitory divided into offices”, and so on. “I” has a good time in peace, and the hometown is a family of relatives such as grandma and aunt, but the blood relationship is hard to hide the sadness of the people. The writer constructs the novel’s dense and detailed narrative space with opposing images, and also uses this to weave this story with nowhere to rest. The “Zhaizi” with the author’s original hometown has become the background of the novel, and it is a typical appearance of the hometown; the “home” in reality and under the paintbrush, and the iron box with the “home” attached to it, put the heart of “I” . “I” repeatedly redrawing the hometown is undoubtedly a metaphor for returning to the hometown, and it is also a daydream of returning to the hometown and the hometown. It is paradoxical that not only the redrawing of the homeland will become ambiguous, uncertain, or even deformed Mutated into a small yard with weeds. Therefore, once I returned to my hometown, whether in childhood or internship, I found that I could not go back. The stranger in the familiar, the familiar in the stranger, and the overgrown fields all exiled “I”. So the “bed of the collective dormitory” and the “dormitory separated from the office” became temporary life-saving straws, temporarily settling the wandering “I”; even love was not dare to expect, because boyfriend Luo Jian’s promise of “castle” As far as the mirage of a mirage is far and distant, the waiting and lonely suffering of off-site love aggravates the anxiety and panic of the “I” who lives in nowhere. Therefore, the “homeless” and “running girl” in the “I” picture are undoubtedly the various images of the hermit. Only the “back” in the picture of the hometown is sad and even comforting, because this is a self-portrait of the soul that is with the hometown.

The “Hermitage Age” with “I” ‘s experience in her sojourn and her constant resistance or fleeing to all kinds of hermitage life also meaningfully elicited the sentient beings of those who left their homes: the mother owned the urban house but lost the cohesion of the home, and the father was silent at home. Even sleepwalking, my sister went to work in a different place after graduating from a technical school, and my younger brother was mixed with the rebellious children in the shantytown; and the cousin and the young people in the village saw the end of their working life at a glance … This is the face of the lost soul and the current departure A true portrayal of the survival of rural workers. The shadow of these souls is undoubtedly another mirror of rural China, reflecting the true face of the rural world: Zhaizi has become increasingly deserted and deserted, and its homeland is gradually becoming barren and decaying. Therefore, the land is completely different, and nostalgia is nowhere to be placed.

Based on the “I” narrative that is sensitive to the heart, Wang Zhezhu writes the growth from youth to youth with delicate and delicate brush strokes. He also writes about the recognition and attachment to the village’s hometown and the ethics in close proximity to the characters. Understanding and understanding of family relationships, discovery and search for others. The author summarizes in some paragraphs with idioms such as “ingratitude” and “heart peace” in a paragraph without a student tone. It seems to be restrictive narrative from a naive perspective, deliberately revealing flaws and juvenile psychology. Blinking, showing a rich emotional world between light and unpredictable. Among them, the author’s portrayal of the inner world of “I” is particularly fascinating. “I” experienced the two quiet and chic and novel, “I” in Mandarin debuted “I” ‘s conquering the problem, which caused shock to the classmates: “The kind of still is still a hard piece, “Hanging in the middle of the classroom”; “I” alone owns the tranquility of the campus “quiet like a huge cloud, falling from the sky, covering the school.” A hard and soft description of “quiet” properly presents different contexts , Also engraved the maverick spiritual world. The experience of unfamiliarity and burden is particularly moving: the first time I went to my family, my legs were tight. The things in the house seemed to be covered with light, and they dazzled me. I wandered for a long time under the staircase, lost in the house between my family and my parents ’rental house, and my aunt struggled and was afraid when she quarreled … The charm of the details always vividly portrays the character’s persistence and innocence, independence and fragility. , Lonely and strong.

The plot of “I” evading Luo Jian and falling into a mental dilemma into a tree can be described as imaginative. The illusionary narratives such as the “Human Tree” flying back to ancient times, imaginary travel to space, and human-tree dialogue express the spiritual inquiry of humans without roots. There is no lack of historical reflection, but also a warning to the future. . “Hanging” is the spiritual manifestation of the lost people who have nowhere to put themselves. Leaving their homeland, living in a concrete forest, temporarily living in a dwelling, and constantly moving, eventually leads to a state of nomadic and turbulent homelessness. This kind of hanging It makes the modern people who are not falling down feel uneasy and unreliable. This dangling state has become a modern and reflective phenomenon, full of criticism and alertness. However, the author did not stop at pessimism and criticism. Xu Shi is not too pessimistic about the future. So at the end, the school was rebuilt, the “I” who could not stay temporarily, resigned from public office and ventured into a strange city, and opened another kind of “stay”. In life, the dangling “tree of people” is full of optimism and optimism that “requires only a little dirt and a little moonlight”, resists difficulties with tenacity, courageously fights wandering, and advances bravely in despair, symbolizing the endless youth and human beings. hope. Here, “Hermitage Age” seems to use this poetic image to breathe life into the run-down and depressed country, to turn the next word for the era of soullessness, and to enliven the soul for the eternal distant pedestrians and those who are lost.
