SAIGON, 30. APRIL – 陳銘華 Chen Minghua

6月 3, 2022

Chen Minghua
SAIGON, 30. APRIL

Aus welchem Grund werd ichs vergessen?

Sie kamen aus allen Himmelsrichtungen im Unterleib der S-förmigen Gestalt in diese katholische Schule. Am Vormittag auswendig lernen von “Pfaue fliegen nach Südosten”, am Nachmittag Rezitieren aus dem Truyện Kiều. Sie aßen Fladen aus Fujian, tranken Coca-Cola mit Eis, Salz und Zitrone. Sie schauten Lady Chatterley’s Lover und hörten “Heute kommst du nicht heim” von Yao Surong. Sie lernten für die Matura und waren verliebt.

Aus welchem Grund würd ichs vergessen?

Tränen fließen entlang der immer wieder nach Süden begradigten Fronten des Unterleibs. Der Fluß rauscht ganz nah an den Straßen der Stadt. Ein Kampflugzeug fliegt den Nachbarn ins Wohnzimmer. Ein Panzer bricht durch den Bildschirm des Fernsehers. Ein Stahlhelm ohne Gesicht nach dem anderen hebt sich fragend zum Himmel. Eine Uniform ohne Glieder nach der anderen lässt die M16 sinken. Ein Flachboot ohne Pulverdampf nach dem anderen. Ein Mädchen winkt und wird getrennt.

Aus welchem Grund werd ich 2022 den Jahrestag des Falls von Saigon vor 47 Jahren vergessen?

新世纪诗典作品联展#陳銘華#(8.0)

 

伊沙:也许需要对下一代人加个注释:西贡就是今天的胡志明市,作者还私信告诉我:"南越當時的教育制度高中畢業後考上秀才才能選大學"。这是一首大好之诗,读完心中五味杂陈,作者陈铭华代表着《新诗典》散文诗(或曰"不分行诗")的顶流,他老而弥坚越写越好。本诗是6月上半月推荐诗中毫无争议的冠军之作,特置于中国诗人节一一端午节推荐。

​庄生点评《新诗典》陈铭华《4月30日.西贡》:在学生课间休息时,我读了一遍,每次看到繁体字就有亲切感,从小就读繁体字的诗文,没有隔。诗的第二节可以说写学子的岁月静好,而诗的第四节写出了战争的残酷,连续用“我以什么理由忘记”贯穿全诗,撼人身心!在诗人的心中,西贡是淹没了47周年。我不知道诗人是否是1975年的时候去的美国,但看诗人简介是1979年定居美国洛杉矶。人类也没有理由忘记那些过往的惨痛,但诗人唯有以诗记之,告诉后人发生了什么,此诗让人唏嘘!

马金山|读陈铭华的诗《4月30日·西贡》的十一条:
1、分行,或者是不分行,诗,就是诗;
2、人生的经历,即是写作的宝贵财富,不仅暗含着现实的生活,还蕴含着事物的本真面貌;
3、陈铭华,祖籍广东番禺,1956年12月生于越南嘉定,1979年9月定居于美国洛杉矶。中学时期开始写诗,1990年12月偕诗友创办《新大陆》诗双月刊,任主编。著有诗集《河传》等;
4、在陈铭华的诗里,很多次出现过西贡这个地名,可见这个地方对诗人的影响有多大,与此同时,作为诗人,这个地方也成为了他最重要的写作素材;
5、陈铭华的诗,语言厚重而内含丰富,长句子与不分行的文本,既带有典型的时代背景,还具有明显的文化特征,每一首诗,一经发布,即成为经典的诗歌范本;
6、以独具一格的形式,写历史的长河,不容忽视的记忆,不仅告诉我们思维模式的重要性,而且还告诉我们经历对人生的深远影响与意义,本诗即是例证;
7、而第二节(段)不分行的文字里,写满了多重文化信息的内容,字里行间跳动的脉搏,就是历史的文化底蕴与时代符号;
8、诗中以三个独立成行的句子,“我以什么理由来忘记”,既有承上启下的作用,还有某种情绪的诠释,且饱含着莫名的滋味;
9、而第四节,则布满了战争的痕迹,描述的各种细节深入浅出,而又不免让人有点黯然神伤;
10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“动词,以及文化的信息都是诗歌丰富的内容”;
11、文化之诗、历史之诗、厚重之诗。

【亚坤评诗】
4月30日.西貢
作者|陈铭华
(内容详见新诗典今日推送)

一首大诗!一首内容含量非常丰富的大诗!

首先,这是一首深含“生命况味”的时间回望之诗。从个人角度讲,本诗是作者对自己早年生命旅程和生活记忆的一种深度“回望”和“反哺”。
从历史的角度讲,本诗是作者对西贡那段历史的深度“提纯”、“回望”和“反思”。诗中所展现的“丰富情感”和“幽微情绪”,深刻揭示了作者“个人成长史”中的“暗疤”。
不管是个人的生命痛感,时间记忆,还是历史的“烟尘”,作者内在的“感受”毫无疑问是复杂的、深刻的、厚重的、难忘的。

其次,这也是一首文化之诗。你看诗中第一段提供的“素材”,皆有明显的“文化因素”。我在想:也许是西贡这个地方原本就是一个复杂的“多文化”、“多民族”、“多种群”的集合地。这才给作者“原乡之心”带来了不同的“生命质感”和“文化反思”。

另外,这也是一首反战之诗。你看诗中第二段提供的“内容”,对战争和战争背后的遗留问题,明显具有深度的“思考”和“伤痛”。

全诗素材非常丰富,内容深刻,心灵空间里深含着“善意”。
诗歌形式采用散文化的方式进行推进。很有特点!
两段内容都用相同的主题句来做“引子”。最后还留有“尾声”作为呼应。
诗歌情绪一直贯穿到结尾。情感饱满、思想深刻、意味丰富!好诗!

ANNIVERSARY FEVER – 沈浩波 Shen Haobo

6月 4, 2018

Shen Haobo
ANNIVERSARY FEVER

At every anniversary of a famous poet or writer,
that guy who is dead gets really happy.
As if a new book is coming out,
jumping out of their grave, waving their hands,
advertising themselves.
Harking for the spring rain of applause,
all excited.
Two, three days later
they are exhausted and dead again.
Isn’t it funny?
I ask myself,
in a few decades when my day comes up
and I don’t get the attention
will I be unhappy
and gnash my teeth in my grave?

4/12/18
Translated by MW in June 2018

JAHRESTAGSFIEBER

bei jedem jahrestag eines berühmten autors
wird der typ der schon tot ist ganz aufgeregt
als ob er ein neues buch publiziert
springt aus dem grab
wedelt mit den armen, macht werbung
lauscht seinem applaus wie dem frühlingsregen
es ist so herrlich
paar tage später
ist er erschöpft und wieder ganz tot
ist das nicht komisch?
ich frag mich
wenn ich zig jahre später dann meinen tag hab
und ich krieg keine aufmerksamkeit
werd ich traurig sein
und mit den zähnen knirschen im grab?

wee

little wee gets up to play
we are more than what we are
sometimes we may call it god
wee may call as soon as twelve
sometimes we may call it light
wee may call as soon as two
wee may always call at night
little wee wakes up to cry
we are less than what we are
wee may sleep as soon as noon
sometimes we may call it god
wee may call as late as eight
sometimes we can see the light
wee can call us any time
sometimes we can feel the night
sometimes wee can be alright

Second Anniversary of the 2011 Japan Earthquake

hold it

(quakes, tsunamis, nuclear threats …)

the days of the blossoms
the yellow the white
the shoots and the air
and the birds and the bees
the flies and the beetles
the earth and the trembling
the cars that come floating
the buildings come tumbling
the life that sprouts

MW March 2011

innehalten

(fuer japan, yunnan, burma …)

die tage die blueten
die spitzen die gruenen
die weissen die gelben
die bienen die fliegen
die wogen die steigen
die wagen die treiben
die erde die bebt und
das leben das keimt

Objective

6月 13, 2011

According to Xinhua and Global Times, the newly published second volume of “History of the Chinese Communist Party” (1949-1978) is “seen as objective”.  So what’s the objective of this book? What are the objectives of this new “objective” party history? Was it written by party members? Does anyone among them, or among the people who planned, published, and distributed this book, think the PRC should evolve into something different from a one-party dictatorship/autocracy? (I find it hard to believe that many non-party members would use their own money to buy such a book. Or is it really that different? Why was it published, then?) Which major bookstores have had their sales rankings dominated by this book? Ok, the main objective seems to be seen as objective. “Experts say that objectivity, a founding principle of the CPC, was virtually banished during the late 1950s and 1960s, when “extreme leftist” thought dominated the governing ideology of the Party.” Founding principle? There must be some historians who can answer this question. Anyway, they still write their party with a capital P.

In Taiwan, there seems to have been pressure for change in the late 1970s and early 1980s. China was changing. Taiwan was and is still called Republic of China, but in the 1970s they lost their UN-Security Council seat to the
PRC. Because of that ping-pong tournament between Nixon, Zhou Enlai, Mao and Kissinger, or something like that. Yes, sports events have always been very important. So there was pressure on Taiwan to open up politically, to democratize. They couldn’t just go on calling themselves The Free China team. No-one was ever going to help them liberate the Mainland anyway. So the Chiang Ching-kuo administration eventually lifted martial law in 1987, and allowed real opposition. A real opposition party. In 1988 or 1989, you still had to be a Party member (GMD/KMT) to get into certain positions in Taiwan. In 1988 or 1989, even very liberal Party members still said that in 1947, maybe 200 people might have been killed after the February 28th incident, but it was an armed uprising anyway. In 1991, President Li Denghui publicly admitted that probably more than 20.000 people had been killed in 1947 by government forces, and apologized to surviving relatives.

Going back to China: If there is any real discussion about The Great Leap Forward famine, in conjunction with all the other campaigns, including the anti-rightist “movement” and the ones before and after, including the CR,
wouldn’t that mean one-party autocracy would have to be abandoned at some time? In 2011, we’re having 90 years of CCP, in addition to 45 years after 1966, the beginning of the CR. In 2009, we’ve had The Founding of a Republic (1949), and in addition 1959 (famine), 1969 (CR), 1979 and 1989 (In 1979, economic reform was ushered in under Deng Xiaoping, who prevailed over Hua Guofeng in the late 1970s, although Hua had been appointed by Mao. Does that mean Hua and Mao were part of the “‘extreme leftist’ thought [that] dominated the governing ideology of the Party” […] “during the late 1950s and 1960s”?).

The student demonstrators in 1989 explicitly stated in slogans on banners etc. that they supported the CCP. Even after they were called counter-revolutionaries in the The People’s Daily. (See the article by Su Yang 蘇陽 in the HK Xin Bao). But because protest leaders emphasized loyalty to the state, three peasants who hurled red paint at the Mao portrait at Tian’anmen were apprehended by the students and handed over to Public Security. They were from Hunan, where Mao came from. They got 17-20 years. After the massacre of June 3rd and June 4th in the streets of Beijing, who would still think that political reform would be possible under the Party?

“Objectivity” sounds rather like the 1980s. Objectivity and political reform, or at least pressure for political reform are interdependent. Any kind of national and international pressure, especially the latter. “Chinese
Communist Party seen as objective in writing its history” – doesn’t that sound like “Vatican seen as objective in writing its history”? Yan Lianke cannot publish his latest novel Four Books in mainland China, because it’s about the Great Leap Forward famine. Opposition party founder Liu Xianbin has been sentenced to another 10 years in March. He has been sentenced to 26 years since 1989. There are a few other people like him. They are not as famous as Liu Xiaobo and Ai Weiwei. And there are people in detention or in labor camps for political reasons who are not intellectuals or dissidents. Like Ai Weiwei’s cook and his driver. Anyway, would anyone call the present political and social climate in China hopeful? So what are the objectives?
