POETRY IN CRISIS? 庄生访谈:十一问 – 11 QUESTIONS asked by Zhuang Sheng

三月 19, 2020

11 QUESTIONS asked by Zhuang Sheng

1. Could you please introduce yourself?
Martin Winter, Chinese name 维马丁, poet and translator from Chinese into German and English.
2. Where did you spend this year’s Spring Festival?
At home in Vienna. Yi Sha 伊沙 and six other poets from China (Tu Ya 图雅, Jiang Huhai 江湖海, Xiang Lianzi 湘莲子, Pang Qiongzhen 庞琼珍, Bai Li 白立 and Chun Sue 春树) had just left, after spending over two weeks in Austria in January. You could also say we had Spring Festival together, in Innsbruck in Tyrol in the alps, with poets there, and in Vienna, also with friends. Bai Li was our best cook, and all of them made really good food, we made Jiaozi together, you know, Chinese dumplings, and many other dishes. Yi Sha likes to cook tomatoes and eggs, very simple dish, but very good. We celebrated together, and they went back one day before the lunar new year.
3. How has this virus crisis affected you?
Actually, here in Austria it has only just started to affect everyone. Schools are closed, also most shops. I have been working from home before already, so there is no big change. But I have to be afraid of both short-term and long-term effects in the publishing world, in China and in Europe.
4. How do you spend your time now?
I work from home, so the only big change is that my wife and my son are also home all day. My daughter already has her own apartment, but it is close by. She moved in February, when it was still normal. She was with us on the weekend, we are going to see her again tomorrow or so. People are supposed to stay at home, but you can go shopping for food, medicine, tobacco.
5. How is your mood these days?
Ok, maybe a little worried, but ok, not bad.
6. What are you most satisfied with from before this crisis? Can you give an impression of the efforts against the virus in your location?
My poems. My work. My family, friends, contacts, local and international. The measures against the virus here in Austria and in Vienna have only just started in earnest. There is some criticism that tourism was stopped too late in Tyrol. People who came to ski from all over Europe, and some got sick there, maybe a lot.
7. What is the best thing you have eaten during this crisis?
My wife is at home, so she cooks more. She likes to buy lamb and beef from the Muslim halal butcher at the vegetable market close by. Our vegetables are from there too. My son likes to help with cooking. Today they made lasagna, from scratch. Most food shops are open, even some restaurants for take out. Some Chinese shops have closed. Hope there are still one or two open in the city. But that’s just for spices and sauces like 老干妈.
8. What has worried your family and relations in this crisis?
My parents stay at home. My sister lives very close to them, and her sons help them. One of them is studying to be a doctor, he was working in a hospital. Hope he is ok.
9. In this global crisis, what do you think about poets writing poetry? Have you written poetry in this time?
This is a very good time for writing, reading, translating, even for distributing and discussing poetry, at least online. I have followed the situation in China. People compared the slogans warning you not to go out, some of these were very nasty and violent, to the writing on boxes sent from Japan, relief goods for Wuhan. There was Tang poetry on there, to remind people of their common heritage. Something about mountains and streams, 山川異域, 風月同天. Reminds me of Du Fu, mountains and rivers remain. So people compared this ancient culture to the crude slogans and said we should learn from the Japanese. Then one guy wrote an article in the Yangtze daily 长江日报 on February 12 and quoted Adorno who said poetry after Auschwitz was barbaric, so we don’t need poetry from Japan, because of what the Japanese did in the war. Any simple slogan was better, no poetry required, he said. But Tang poetry is very much what defines China, Chinese culture, also poetry in general. So everyone trashed this guy online. And people wrote even more poetry than before, a lot of it related to the crisis. Poems for Dr. Li Wenliang, the eye doctor from Wuhan who was one of the early whistle-blowers in late December 2019, and got reprimanded, and continued to work and died from the virus. That was world news, everyone knows this, also here in Austria. So in China on the whole there is a creative burst in this crisis, which is a very good thing, it gives hope. Some of these new poems are really very, very good. Yes, I have written a few poems myself. Some are related to China. I’ll see how it goes here in Europe. People have to stay at home, so they have more time for artistic pursuits, making music, for example. Singing from the balconies.
10. When the crisis is over, what are you most eager to do?
Don’t know yet, it has only just started here. Go out, meet people. My book is coming out in China, “Finally We Have Snow”, translated by Yi Sha. Should have come out in February. So I had planned to present the book in China this spring, at the Austrian embassy in Beijing, and at other places, maybe Xi’an etc. Anyway, my expertise is in intercultural, international contact with Chinese language, literature, poetry. So I am most eager to work in this field.
11. What do you think about the global situation?
It has brought people together. It is good for the climate, hopefully also for the social climate locally and internationally. There are always people who play us and them, but people do have a lot in common, much more than we realize. And now we have this one thing in common, globally. Everybody seems to agree on that.

CORONA-VIRUS 新冠病毒

Yi Sha

GUIDE

 

I am a shoddy travel guide.

About 20 days ago

in Vienna

I led Bai Li

to a group of angels

who hold golden cups at the sky

and told him this was in celebration

of a good harvest.

Actually it is for victims of the Black Death.

At this time the current plague in our country

had already begun.

Yi Sha

REISEFÜHRER

 

Ich bin ein sehr lahmer Reiseführer.

Vor ungefähr 20 Tagen

in Wien

hab ich Bai Li

vor eine Gruppe von Engeln

die goldene Schalen gen Himmel halten

geführt und gesagt

das sei ein Denkmal für reiche Ernte.

Eigentlich ist es eine Pestsäule.

Damals hat sich in unserem Heimatland

schon eine Seuche ausgebreitet.

《导游》

伊沙

 

我是个蹩脚的导游

大约廿天前

在维也纳

我把白立

导到天使们向天

捧着金碗的

纪念碑下说

这是庆祝丰收纪念碑

其实那是

黑死病死难者纪念碑

当此时

祖国大疫起

 

 

CORONA-VIRUS

In China
haben die Leute
die angeblich alles kontrollieren
was angeblich unvermeidbar sei
schon wieder
versagt.

新型肺炎

 

在中国

据说控制一切的人

那据说不可避免的一切的控制

失败了。

CORONA-VIRUS

The people
in China
who are supposed to control everything
which is supposed to be inevitable
have failed
yet again.

相信魔鬼

恶性循环
用德语说
是魔鬼循环
所以说
新冠病毒
是魔鬼的错吧

BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL

 

Vicious circle

is called devil’s circle

in German.

And so we can say

the Corona virus

is the fault of the devil.

禽流感

 

2006年

禽流感

好像要威胁奥地利

至少健康部长这样觉得

让她的丈夫跟德国医疗公司

制作一两千万口罩,

奥地利人口不到八百万。

结果奥地利没有人感染

但健康部长夫妇

一直有麻烦

还有奥地利诗人写口罩记。

那位丈夫

一直擅长卖军火。

在多瑙河旁边

拥有华丽的宫殿。

 

2020、2

 

 

VOGELGRIPPE

 

2006

hat die Vogelgrippe

Österreich bedroht.

Jedenfalls hat die Gesundheitsministerin

über ihren Mann

Millionen von Masken anfertigen lassen.

Die Regierung musste 7,7 Millionen Masken kaufen,

eine für jeden Menschen in Österreich.

Keiner hat die Masken gebraucht.

Die Ministerin wurde verspottet.

Der Mann ist für Waffengeschäfte bekannt.

Er hat ein Schloss nicht weit von der Donau.

Angeblich gibt es noch viele Masken

in Kasernen, angeblich sind sie alt.

Vielleicht kann man sie noch verwenden?

Bitte schickt sie nach China, wenns irgendwie geht.

WIR KÖNNEN NUR GLAUBEN – 庞琼珍

Pang Qiongzhen
WIR KÖNNEN NUR GLAUBEN

Der Schaffner kontrolliert,
da komm ich erst drauf neben mir
sitzt eine frische Studentin auf dem Weg zur Uni.
Ich muss einfach sagen, was man so sagt,
jedes bisschen mehr lernen
bedeutet du hast es später leichter.
Ich weiß schon, das stimmt nicht ganz,
aber sie und ich kommen von gewöhnlichen Eltern,
wir könnens nur glauben.

BEIEINANDER BLEIBEN – 庞琼珍

Pang Qiongzhen
BEIEINANDER BLEIBEN

Wir betreten die Große Moschee
in der Huajue-Gasse in Xi’an,
da bemerk ich erst, Frau G ist Muslima.
Sie erzählt vom Begräbnis ihres Vaters.
Ihr Mann Yi Sha und männliche Verwandte
haben ihren Vater mit sauberem Wasser gewaschen,
in ein 12 Meter langes Leintuch gewickelt und begraben.
Aber für sich wählt sie das nicht, sie will mit Yi Sha,
ihrem Han-chinesischen Mann, beisammen sein.

DURCHGEMACHT – 庞琼珍

Pang Qiongzhen
DURCHGEMACHT

Hui Lin ist 1942 geboren.
Liang Bo ist 1944 geboren.
Mein ältester Bruder ist 1946 geboren.
Der zweite Bruder ist 1949 geboren.
Der kleinste Bruder ist 1958 geboren.

Mein ältester Bruder ist mit 71 gestorben.
Der zweite Bruder ist mit 59 gestorben.
Der jüngste ist nicht einmal ein Jahr alt geworden.

Ich schmeichle Hui Lin und Liang Bo, sie seien jung.
Liang Bo setzt neckisch seine Schirmkappe auf,
deckt sein weißes Haar zu, ist gleich noch jünger.
“Ich bin vom Affenjahr,
geboren in Chungking im Widerstandskrieg gegen Japan,
wir habens nicht leicht gehabt.
Aber in Taiwan und in Amerika
waren kein Hunger und keine Kampfsitzungen.”

FAMINE – 庞琼珍

一月 31, 2019

Pang Qiongzhen
FAMINE

After finishing
rotten sweet potatoes
peanut shells
grain husks
weeds
grass roots
leaves
bark;

Still famished,
he follows
the grown-ups,
looking for anything to fill his belly.

Between rocks
he scrapes out
white clay,
it feels soft
on his tongue.

In his belly,
the clay becomes hard as rocks;
if you want to live
it has to be scraped
out of your guts.

60 years later
my uncle says on his sickbed,
that stuff was called Guanyin soil.
Like clay to play for children,
like plasticine.

HORSE MUSEUM – 庞琼珍 – PFERDEMUSEUM

五月 11, 2018

Pang Qiongzhen
HORSE MUSEUM

horse sculpture
half out of its stable
but from up close it’s alive
imprisoned in a two square meter box
awkwardly craning
its living specimen head
the mane has been coloured
and made into pigtails
eight-hour shift each day
just like me

3/18/18
Tr. MW, May 2018

 

Pang Qiongzhen
PFERDEMUSEUM

eine pferdeskulptur
lugt aus dem stall
von nah ist es wirklich ein pferd
eingeschlossen in zwei quadratmeter bühne
bewegt es den lebenden
kopf den es darstellt
mit bunten zöpfen
acht stunden dienst
jeden tag
so wie ich
