Stockholm Dreaming China

九月 6, 2016

艾喜說得真好。難忘的兩三天一場夢。我講了天津詩人徐江《想象IMAGINE》一首,還有伊沙的《梦》,並且伊沙和徐江各種詩歌平台夢想。都是非常具体的、民间的、日常生活的東西。謝謝朋友們!多谢意大利汉学国际联邦!谢谢斯德哥尔摩大学漢學系以及遠遠從新西兰、澳洲等等來参加的学者!

800px-veterinc3a4rhc3b6gskolan_2011aEarlier this month, I attended the conference Exploring the China Dream at Stockholm University – glorious good fun including more  inspiring and informative presentations than I can mention here, so just a few samples:

At the panel on film and visual culture chaired by eminent organizer Elena Pollacchi, Prof. Paola Voci introduced us to different types of virtual soft power with hilarious and scary examples of short internet films like this one (》低头人生《 about what can happen to people who live with their heads glued to small screens).

Prof. Irmy Schweiger chaired my panel on dreams in literature, in which Martin Winter (who is much quicker on the keyboard than I am and has already blogged about it here and  here) read us a poem by Xu Jiang and talked about his translations of Yi Sha’s dream inspired poetry.

LEGOLAND 楽高世界

LEGOLAND

Guess I should write a Legoland poem
so we can put all the photos online
or at least some of them
might be looked at
beyond Facebook memory
or Chinese social media.

Legoland is a wonderful city
everyone goes by their own free will
everyone of the children.
Lego Star Wars Movies
are really not bad
at least what I saw of it
with the children.

Should have bought DVDs
though they’re all Danish
with Nordic subtitles.

Wonder if they’re somewhere
but I don’t like movies online
or music or too much of anything
except maybe poetry.

Reciting poetry is not for Legoland.
But they have theatre,
medieval drama.

Actors get wet.
Most of the rides
mean you get wet,
and there’s the rain.

But we had fun.

It’s very peaceful.
Pirate room, holiday village
Chinese family in common kitchen
breakfast of champions
of plastic swords
includes extra room:
bricks, pinball games.

Bake your own pancake!
Guess it’s too wet
too expensive for terrorists
at least for now.

Go while you can.

BOSÖN NEAR STOCKHOLM

there are the firs
I mean these tall pines
birch in between
there are the blueberries
just like in latvia
here they have small red berries too
blueberries aren’t as big as in latvia
but taste great after swimming
the sea is rougher
very nice after running
coming home to blueberry climate
