Love for books

They had been communicating for half a year, but never met. Finally, the girl put it in her letter, "why is it so harmonious? Why can't we have an interview?" The girl sent a photo to Ba Jin, and then they met at a cafe. After 8 years of love and long-distance running, Ba Jin, the most puzzled year, joined the girl named Xiao Shan.

On the second day, he took the children to the bookstore again.
Interesting pen names
Although Ba Jin is famous at home and abroad, the origin of "Ba Jin" is not known to everyone, and it is often misunderstood by people who suspect that these two words come from Bakunin and Kropotkin. In his letter to Soviet Union writer Petrov in September 27, 1957, Ba Jin annotated her name: "in August 1928, I wrote the" ruin "to sign the original manuscript, and I wanted to find two words with fewer strokes. I was translating Kropotkin's ethics. I saw the word "Jin" and I wrote it down in my manuscript. At this time, I got a message from a friend who committed suicide. This friend is surnamed Ba, and I lived with him in Cha-teau-Thierry for a long time. He is the Chinese student in a preface to "the dead sun", "a friend of mine is committing suicide in hot water." We are not bosom friends, but in foreign countries, how much we value friendship. I thought of him at that time, and I added a "Ba" on the word "Jin". From then on, Ba Jin became my name.

Style of work
Theme of creation
As far as subject matter is concerned, Ba Jin's novels mainly depict family life and have strong autobiography. His short stories are diverse in subject matter and involve a wide range of subjects. In Ba Jin's works, the family is the society, the family is the cell of the social organism, and the family life is the epitome of social life. Ba Jin's creative practice shows that he likes to reflect the social life and its development through describing family life scenes. Especially his "trilogy of torrent" and "cold night". The torrent describes the decline of the high mansion from its prosperity and its collapse, reflecting the gradual decline of the feudal family, showing the historical trend of the inevitable collapse of the feudal autocratic system, and praising the awakening and rebellion of the youth. At the same time, Gao Gong's life is also written by the author's early family life as a prototype, with a strong autobiographical nature. The cold night reveals the darkness of the rear area society by describing the disintegration process of Wang family. The author focuses on the contradictions and conflicts within the small family, such as mother in law and daughter-in-law quarrel, and husband and wife's estrangement. Through the real and meticulous depiction of everyday life, we can see that the root of Wang's tragedy lies in the darkness and corruption of the Kuomintang government. This work once again embodies the characteristics of Ba Jin's creation, and takes the family as a miniature of society to depict the vicissitudes of the times with family life pictures. In addition, Ba Jin has excellent use of this theme in short stories such as "a couple", "pig and chicken" and "Reunion".
Ba Jin's short stories are rich and varied, but they can be summed up in six categories. First, works written on foreigners' lives are concentrated in revenge collection and electric chair collection. These works depict many foreigners' stories and create many vivid images of foreigners. Second, it reflects the miserable life of peasant workers, intellectuals, small civil servants, revolutionaries, and other strata of the people and their struggle against resistance. Third, it is the four fairy tale collected in the tower of life. Long life tower "The secret of the tower", "invisible pearl" and "able tree", the author expresses his view of social reality by means of fairy tales. The fourth is the three historical novels collected in silent collection (two), namely, the death of Marla, the sadness of Dandong, and the secret of Robles. These three works reflect the social life of the French Revolution and summarize the lessons of that history. Fifthly, describing the daily life of the little people in 40s, showing their unfortunate experiences. Story of hair Some of these works reflect the transformation of Ba Jin's writing style. Six, it reflects the life of volunteers, that is, works of war theme, collected in the story of heroes, pearl and Yuji, and Da Hai Li And so on. These works are the last fruits of Ba Jin's novels, and they are important contributions of the old writers to the new China literature.
In addition, the themes of Ba Jin's novels are varied. perish "New life", "love Trilogy", " Dream of the sea "Works" reflect the lives of young revolutionaries. Garden And so on are the works of feudal family life. "Sand Ding" and "budding" are novella that reflects the life and struggle of miners. Fourth ward "Cold night" reflects the miserable life of the small and small civil servants in the Kuomintang ruled area. The fire trilogy is a novel that depicts the Anti Japanese activities of all strata of the people. In short, the themes of Ba Jin's novels are varied and colorful. His novels reflect the living conditions of all the social strata of modern Chinese Du Hui society, and show the historical process of the development of modern society.
style of language
Ba Jin's language style is obvious. Generally speaking, his language is warm, bright and simple. However, the influence of emotion on language can be divided into two phases. In the early days, it was known for its youthful passion and lyric language style, and was highly infectious. home The novels represented by the young people are warmly sought after, while the novel " Garden For the later works of the node, the language began to turn from hot to cold, and the tone became deep, sad and melancholy. In the cold night, the tragic language art was refined to its peak. The momentum and rhythm of Ba Jin's early works language are agitated and vigorous, unable to move back to euphemism, and to regulate it by implicit and condensed. This kind of language, which shows "sentence and life are integrated into one", has strong appeal. It burns like a fire and burns others. However, Ba Jin is by no means just indulgent in writing, unrestrained, and rough. In controlling this kind of plain, frank and hearty writing, Ba Jin paid attention to the change and extension of the mood to arrange the syntactic structure, the collocation of rhetorical devices and the length of syllable, so that the language could naturally become the cadence and melody of the cadence in a lively and bright atmosphere, and produce a musical aesthetic feeling of flowing back and forth. Such as works Autumn in spring "I lift up my hot face, look at the blue sky, and welcome the free wind. My eyes were filled with a pair of big eyes and two long eyebrows. The big eyes are full of love, spring love and southern love. This sentence does not use neat rhymes, nor does it pay attention to the tone and tone collocation. This beautiful language is an important feature of Ba Jin's lyric style.
From " Garden At the beginning, Ba Jin gradually "concealed" his feelings and put them outside the written language. Within the plot, he did not directly reveal his inner feelings like the "rapids" in the earlier stage. Instead, he began to use coldly coloring words to reveal his feelings in a cool and calm way, so that he could move people without "Noticing". Cold night "For example, the color words used in the novel are dark and pale, which give us a heavy sense of depression, which adds to the tragic feelings of the works. The gloomy tone of language is slow and the tone is low, so that the theme and lyric content of the work are highly unified, making the tragedy of the work suddenly, and the tone more sad and melancholy.
The core of Ba Jin's literary thought is truth and goodness. Between these two points, "true" is the life and core of Ba Jin's literary thought. "Good" is the basis and value of Ba Jin's literary thought. The goodness in Ba Jin's literary thought is the absolute free pursuit of human values, which is mainly due to his early contacts. Anarchism Thought. Anarchism advocates self-help relationship among individuals and focuses on individual freedom and equality. The death of Ba Jin's debut is a very passionate expression of his anti autocratic hatred and the two sides of human love, and the later "home" more directly reflects his relentless accusation of feudalism which restricts individual freedom. Later, the trilogy of fire, the fourth sick rooms, the garden of retreats, and the cold night reflect the darkness of Chinese society in 40s. The direct description of the war of resistance against fire, the dark exposure of the fourth wards to the bottom of society, the reflection of "the garden" on the unequal society, and the cold night's accusation against social darkness. In the late period, Ba Jin's thought of "good" is more clearly defined. This connotation is mainly reflected through the reflection of the cultural revolution, that is, against cultural autocracy, opposing the will of the governor, opposing the reality of whitewashing, and repenting the weakness of his own spirit. He believes that the whole nation should repent and reflect. So he also loudly raised the need to establish the Cultural Revolution Museum.
Ba Jin's view of truth is more directly reflected in his works. Because Ba Jin is different from the systematic and theoretical characteristics of Mao Dun and other writers when he finished his works, his works only seek truth, move with truth and win by "truth". In the early works of Ba Jin, he devoted himself to the feelings of youth's antagonism to their parents. The truth of the writer lies in the excavation and refinement of this feeling, as he said in the general order of the torrent. office " "I have seen many things in the meantime, and I know a lot of things. I am surrounded by boundless darkness, but I am not alone and not hopeless. Everywhere I see, I see the torrent of life in turmoil, creating its own path, through the rubble of the mountains. The writer feels the pain of love and hate felt by his more than 20 year old youth's eyes, which is embodied in the true feelings of the Ba Jin style, which is the true feelings of the youth. Here, violating the torrent of life is false. To adapt to the torrent of life is true. It will be reflected in the trilogy of the torrent by Ba Jin. In the later period of Ba Jin's creation, this view of reality has changed. The change lies in its rational choice, namely, the thinking of the Chinese society in the 40s and the feeling of this kind of thinking. " Cold night "Is a typical example. The crux of the cold night lies in its authenticity. This truth can be said to be cruel reality, that is, the cruelty of life is reflected by the good man's kindness to the good person, and the tragedy between the good man and the good person is created.
Bing Xin "The most lovable and admirable writer" "why do I put the loveliness on the front?" Because I love him just like my own brother. His admirable place is his sincerity. Wen Chao and I also think that what he most admired is his seriousness and specificity in his attitude towards love and marriage. In short, he is a man who loves human beings, loves the country, loves the people, and pursues light all his life. He is not a writer who writes for his writing. "
Xiao Qian "Ba Jin's greatness is to deny himself."
Lu Xun "Ba Jin is a writer with enthusiasm and progressive thoughts, among the few good writers."
Shen Congwen "One is too fond of reading the history of French Revolution. One is that you are too susceptible to feelings on the side. The former increases your superstition and the latter increases your pain. Your emotions are too hot, and when reason and emotions are opposite, they are often victorious by emotions. "
pen name of Wan Jiabao "I miss the three door of Beiping, the humble house you live in. At that time, I was just a nameless college student who didn't know the sky. Thunderstorm The manuscript in the drawer nearly a year's manuscript, is you see this young man also can be, prompted the publication of the script. You introduced me to the literary and art circles. After every manuscript, you read the manuscript and publish it. How many times have I said this? However, I can't finish it. Because it is not easy to know a horse, it is even harder to understand. "
Shu Yi "He said," when people live, they say and do things in accordance with each other. They can not be achieved. If we fail to do so, we must do so. This society can become bright. "
Jin Yong "Ba Jin is a great writer in China."
Wang Meng "He is our banner and an example."
Wen Jie Luo "I think if Ba Jin does not know Xiao Qian, Ba Jin is Ba Jin, but if Xiao Qian does not know Ba Jin, it will be different."
Jia Pingwa "Ba is always a great master of contemporary Chinese literature. His morality and articles are a banner of contemporary writers."
Bi Shu min "He is a great litterateur. His integrity and brilliance, including his proposal to build the Museum of Cultural Revolution, let the whole nation reflect and introspection. I want to learn from Ba Lao, be a writer with conscience, and learn from him that he is a spiritual spark.
Grass baby "The most ardent emotion of Ba Lao is the most sincere love for the working people, especially the deep sympathy for the lower class people."
1983, French President Mitterrand He came to visit China and personally awarded the medal of honor to Ba Jin in the banquet hall of the Shanghai exhibition hall. He considered him "one of the great writers in the contemporary world". His "liberal, open and broad thinking" has made him one of the great witnesses of this century.

For half a century, Ba Jin has enthusiastically participated in the construction of modern Chinese culture with his own speech and artistic creation. It is mainly manifested in the following: under the guidance of the idea of "the purpose of literature is to make people better", a series of artistic models with rebellious character and servile personality have been created. In order to "establish people", from "telling the truth" to "writing the truth", it has always been consistent with all his life experiences and creative activities. He emphasized many times that "I say that I write as if I were living, and that the highest state of writing is the consistency of writing with life, which is the consistency of writers, and the main idea is not to lie." At the same time, Ba Jin also contributed to the "two congruent" typicality methods and the "realistic living" character of the real realism aesthetics theory; to pursue the truth, to confess piously and painfully in the random thoughts, to analyze his soul, to criticize Feng Jianlun's moral philosophy fiercely, to dig the servitude of the soul of the Chinese people, and to participate in the construction of modern ethical culture with the charm of personality. He provided strong and subjective lyric novels. Mao Dun , Lao She Together with the objectivity and realism of the novels, it constitutes the artistic peak of the second ten novels and novels in the modern literature.
