又說再見了!

這几天在台灣
碰到很多朋友
非常難得。
有的認試快三十年了。
這几天碰到很多作家
很多譯着同事
還碰到詩人鴻鴻。
在台灣有人
天天碰到鴻鴻
也碰到楽天
鴻鴻的小兒子。
昨天楽天碰到我。
抱着他像十年前
抱着自己的孩子。
那時候在北京。
今天晚上我離開台灣。
如果能留下會怎麽様?
台灣目前有些方面
比奥地利好。
没有崛起的右派。
有第一位女總统,
社會有一些進步。
總共很多方面
比三十年前進步蠻大了。
目前台灣好像比歐洲美国都好,
也许有點像加拿大,
雖然台灣很小,
半個奥地利面積。
能够面對自己的歷史,
能够促進社會改造
都非常難得的。
請朋友多保重!
希望早點再見!

2016/11

 

Leicht gesagt, denk ich mir bei manchen Aussagen aus Österreich. Bin gerade in Taiwan. Manches ist besser. Vieles ist besser als vor 30 Jahren. Ganz, ganz deutlicher Fortschritt. Zeitgeschichte wird aufgearbeitet. In Österreich hat erst Vranitzky über 40 Jahre nach Kriegsende die Verantwortung für die Shoa,
für all die furchtbaren Greuel zugegeben. Obwohl vorher schon ein Jude 13 Jahre Bundeskanzler war. In Taiwan war 40 Jahre Kriegsrecht. 1947-1987. 1991 hat Präsident Lee Teng-hui die Verantwortung der Regierung für das Massaker von 1947 zugegeben und sich bei den Angehörigen der Opfer entschuldigt. In Österreich hat man vor 30 Jahren endlich das Vergessen der Verantwortung aufgegeben. Das haben viele damals geglaubt. Es hat auch gestimmt. Aber jetzt hat Österreich auch schon fast seit 30 Jahren vergessen, worauf die 2. Republik basiert. Thomas Bernhard und Elfriede Jelinek und so weiter hatten und haben leider recht. Mein eigenes Schreiben kommt von Ernst Jandl her. Die radikale Kritik in den Werken vieler Schriftsteller kommt für mich von der Hoffnung, dass es irgendwie möglich sein könnte, sich der Verantwortung zu stellen. Immer noch leicht gesagt, ich weiß.

星期六七月26号去了鲍勃.迪伦现场 – Bob Dylan concert 在 Wiesen, 奥地利 Austria.
Rather good. Full raspy voice. Lots of ambivalence in the songs. Experimenting with old songs, making it new.
Songs from the albums TIME OUT OF MIND, WORLD GONE WRONG, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS and others. “Love Sick” was the last song. Very, very good. Before that, a new version of Blowin’ in the Wind.
Dylan was rather like Cui Jian 崔健 when he’s good – new songs every time, all of it – especially the classics.
Dylan mostly played piano. Good band. Each song a surprise. We saw Lou Reed two years ago. Also very good. Experimental, still.
That was the last chance I would get to experience Lou Reed live. He was himself, as far as I could tell. They also had what was left of The Doors – still with Ray Manzarek – and Ian Anderson and others. Doors trying to sound like on the records. Oh well. Ian Anderson coherent for one song only. Sad. Lou Reed strong. Like Dylan this time.

BRONZE STATUES ARE BUSY – Hung Hung

五月 22, 2014

bronze statue

Hung Hung
MARTIAL LAW ERA – AFTER HEARING THAT SUN YAT-SEN’S STATUE AT THNG TEK-CHIONG PARK IN TAINAN HAD BEEN TORN DOWN

all those bronze statues
are busy at night
patrolling the streets
lest people get drunk and say the wrong thing or kiss in the alleys
or play mahjong at home
statues will check at the newspaper press
is there a piece on the chief like last year?
is there a space for respect at the top?
has someone scribbled in the blank spot?

bronze statues are busy
they are scared of too many things
scared stamps could bear other portraits
scared streets and squares, schools, libraries
would all change their names
no more school kids saluting
no more chatting with sparrows
scared that one day
there’d be a rope
to pull them down

“mama, why is the statue green in the face?”
“no finger-pointing, your fingers fall off!”
“mama, the statue hides for a smoke at the fire brigade!”
“he just takes a break, he got burned in the sun every day.”

those statues have long forgotten the killings
of another generation
forgotten how they are still being used
they only remember the heat of the forge
it was hard to bear
and once you cool down, then come the years
standing empty and cold

Written on the eve of Febr. 28th, 2014,
67 years after the Febr. 28th, 1947 massacre.

戒嚴年代–聞湯德章公園孫文銅像被拆

那些銅像
深夜很忙
要滿街巡邏
有沒人酒醉講錯話或在暗巷接吻
還是哪一家在打麻將
要去報紙印刷廠
檢查去年的文告有沒登在
今年的頭條
頂上有沒空一格
空的一格有沒被塗鴉

銅像很忙
因為他們害怕的事太多
害怕郵票換成別的頭像
害怕街道、廣場、學校、圖書館
換上別的名字
害怕小學生經過不再敬禮
雀鳥不再來閒聊
害怕有一天
被繩子一拉
就倒

「媽媽,為什麼銅像的臉是綠的?」
「不要亂指,手指會爛掉!」
「為什麼銅像躲在消防隊抽菸?」
「他每天曬太陽好可憐,要休息一下。」

銅像早忘了前世的殺戮
也忘了今世如何被利用再三
只記得鍛燒的烈火
多麼煎熬難忍
而冷卻後的歲月
又是多麼荒涼

2014.228前夕

I was very astonished when I first saw the picture. It does look like violence, the statue is smeared red. The poem is a revelation. Why would people have something against Sun Yat-sen? Nice guy, compared to what came later. Late retribution, for the killing of Thng Tek-Chiong, governor of Tainan in 1947, one of the first dead in the February 28 massacre? Sun Yat-sen is rather far from home in Tainan, far from his home base. I remember that small park near the train station in Taipei, where Sun Yat-sen lived when he visited Taiwan, it was a Japanese hotel back then. Small garden, very peaceful. A little forlorn and frail among the hustle and bustle around Taipei train station. Why would anyone be angry at a statue of Sun Yat-sen? In 2011 and early 2012, there were many conferences around the world in memory of the 1911 辛亥革命. People talked about many interesting things, but something like this? Without this poem, I would never have thought people would think that way about these statues. Not that much. So many killings back then, so much White Terror in decades, and no retribution. And the KMT still in power. There is repressed violence in people’s hearts, and everybody can count there lucky stars if they take it out only on statues.

Taiwan is a very peaceful and safe place, all in all. One-party dictatorship does create a sense of security for some, at least in retrospect. The world gets more complicated in those new-fangled pluralist societies. So there are people who blame the subway knife attack of a deranged student on May 21 on the student-led protests in March and early April this year. In Austria, the shameless tabloid that is much bigger than Murdoch and Berlusconi in their countries, still says things like all demonstrations and protest are leftist, and cost a lot of public money. When there are anti-foreigner rightists marching in Vienna, and the police need to protect them, it is not their fault, right? And if they want to have a ball in the emperor’s palace and parade on the square where Hitler proclaimed the Anschluss in 1938, it is their right and they should be protected, and if the whole city center is full of police barricades, it is the fault of those leftists. 

It’s the other way around! In a more open society, there is much less repressed violence. Look at the recent bloody clashes and attacks in many cities in China. That won’t get less, probably. Taiwan people should be very proud of that big, peaceful demonstration on March 30. Their country has become a much better place through the changes of the last 25 years. The KMT could and should be proud of that, too. But they are the 中國國民黨, so they have to think about stability in a much bigger way, don’t they?

RAIN WASHING THE STREETS – WRITTEN BEFORE THE MARCH 30 PROTEST IN TAIPEI

every morning
I move the whip pressed on my face
take a good breath
so I can get up

every evening
I scrub the lies seared on my forehead
so I can sleep

there are some things you can’t move away
like the police stick in your shoulder blade

sometimes you don’t wake up from dreams
you lift your head to a forest of shields

a car leaving early, I don’t remember the number
a song we sang, I don’t remember the words
I don’t remember how far we walked
and didn’t give up

silent hospitals
silent holding cells
silent TVs
silent tourist hotels
silent concerts
silent barricades
silent mount ali, sun-moon-lake, taroko gorge tribal areas

one huge silence
from teeming noise
in a cold front from the mainland
shrouding Taiwan
particulates off the charts
until one black flood
breaks worn embankments
one hard rain on the president’s palace
and the sky of tonight
and the road of tomorrow
are swept very clean

鴻鴻

洗街雨──寫於330凱道反服貿前夕

每天早上
把壓在臉上的靴子移開
透一口氣
才能起床

每天晚上
用力搓洗烙在額頭的謊言
才能就寢

有些東西是移不走的
比如嵌在肩胛的警棍

有些夢是不會醒的
比如抬頭就得面對盾牌的叢林

不記得提前離開的那輛車的車牌
不記得一起唱的那首歌的歌詞
不記得我們走了多遠
還不放棄

沈默的醫院
沈默的拘留所
沈默的電視
沈默的觀光飯店
沈默的演唱會
沈默的拒馬
沈默的阿里山、日月潭、太魯閣的原住民部落

人聲鼎沸
的巨大沈默
隨著大陸冷氣團
籠罩全台
懸浮微粒指數超標
直到萬頃黑色海潮
衝破疲憊的堤岸
一陣大雨掃過總統府
把今夜的天空
明天的道路
洗得乾乾淨淨

暴民之歌──聞318佔領立法院反服貿學生被媒體與立委指為暴民

我們來了,夏天也來了
我們的腳步,可以溫柔也可以堅定
我們的聲音,可以優美也可以嘶啞
我們的拳頭,可以揮向天空也可以揮向不義
我們的心,可以是血的紅也可以是青草的綠
我們越過圍牆佔領這條街、這個廣場、這個堡壘
當別人把這裡當作提款機、當作傳聲筒、當作逃生梯
我們把這裡當作溫暖的搖籃,當作哺育稻米的農田,當作未來之歌的錄音間
我們歌唱,對,我們歌唱
我們用歌唱佔領一個原該屬於我們的國家,原該保護我們的政府,原該支持我們生存的殿堂
把它從墳墓變成子宮,從垃圾堆變成果園,從地獄變成天堂
甚至我們不奢求天堂,我們垂下眼睛,把這裡當作自己的家
今夜,原不相識的你我,在這裡多元成家
今夜,我們甘願做愛的暴民
就像五二0訴願農民那樣的暴民
就像六四天安門學生那樣的暴民
就像把美麗島當號角的那樣的暴民
就像用野百合、用茉莉花改變世界的那樣的暴民
就像以自焚為武器的鄭南榕那樣的暴民
不過今夜,我們不焚燒自己
我們焚燒這嚴寒的冬夜
讓夏天一夜之間,來到我們眼前!

Lady Liberty’s Sword

Obama gave his yearly trade report, he wants to sell American pork to Taiwan. Obama is the first African American president. Black people are saved, pigs aren’t saved. Neither are cows. No matter how many hormones they feed them, all humanity has to eat your meat, and it has to be minced, so you don’t know which piece is an eye that saw the sky or a butt tired from needles. Nowadays no-one will eat black people. But there are people who want to swallow Ukrainians, Uighurs, Tibetans. They try out nuclear bombs at Lop Nor, they shoot a movie at Chernobyl, they build a nuclear power plant in Gongliao in Taiwan. Obama is happy to sell uranium for Taiwan nuclear power, I guess Americans like to eat up Taiwanese, barbecued by the torch of the Statue of Liberty. At the beginning of Kafka’s novel “America”, Lady Liberty’s torch is mistaken for a sword, piercing the suddenly brightening sky. Actually, isn’t it really a sword? Lady Liberty wielding the sword, cowering beauty beyond compare. America the beautiful. Beautiful cows, beautiful pigs, beautiful people. But definitions of beauty are changing. Beautiful Oscar movies, a junkie or a female star in a breakdown, garbage floating in space, we have to get membership, purchase tickets online, complete with Coke and popcorn (from genetically modified American corn), and put on our 3D glasses to see it all clearly.

自由女神的劍

歐巴馬年度貿易報告,想把美豬賣給台灣。歐巴馬是美國第一位黑人總統。黑人得救了,豬沒有得救。美牛也沒有。不管被餵了多少藥物殘留,人類還是要吃你的肉,而且是絞碎了吃,分不出哪一塊是你望過藍天的眼或針孔累累的臀。現在已經沒有人會吃黑人。但是還有人想吃烏克蘭人,維族人,藏人。在羅布泊做核武試爆,去車諾比拍災難片,在貢寮蓋核電廠。歐巴馬很樂意賣原料給核四,原來美國人也吃台灣人,只是要先用自由女神的火炬烤一烤。卡夫卡寫過一本《美國》,一開始就把女神的火炬誤以為是一把劍,刺向突然亮起來的天空。那其實是一把劍不是嗎?女神揮劍恫嚇的姿態優美絕倫。我以為美牛、美豬、美人都是美的。然而美的定義已經改變了。美是奧斯卡獎頒給的嗑藥英雄和崩潰的女星、在太空中飛行的垃圾,我們要加入會員、電腦訂票、並搭配可樂和爆米花(也是基因改造的美玉米),戴上3D眼鏡才能看清楚。

《新诗典》以本诗为天下苍生祈福! //@老纪微波:抄送@长安伊沙
In bloom in the chanting
Zhan Che
Chanting sutras, blossoms opening
– stopping by the shrine of the Le Sheng Old People’s Home
[to be demolished]

100 year old banyan tree stretching its roots
sunlight in the wind tipping millions of leaves
some kind of music comes from these instruments
from strings and keys
from hairs and tongues
lepers kneeling before Buddha statues
wrists without hands
wrists that had knives tied to them for cutting vegetables
wrists, mallets tied to them beating wooden fish
– wooden fish swimming in sounds of bells
sounds of bells swimming in rain

those fish without noses
bats with no eyes
earthworms with no hands or feet
by the sound of those wooden fish
growing into whatever they planted
osmanthus smiles magnolia
scents through their four elements six roots of desire
through their five sensory organs in forms of flowers
scents drawing in sutra chanting
in the unseen world –
from their deformed hands feet noses lips
growing twigs and leaves
osmanthus blossoms magnolia smiles
smiling bodhisattvas
in scents of sandalwood and flowers
lighting lanters to walk through the night

but they will be banished by rigid laws
this cultural heritage for all mankind fits into
colonial history public health human rights
they are helpless in this official-commercial structure
but they will take to the streets kneeling and praying
with their deformed blood-swollen hands and feet
kneeling praying entreating towering authorities
bringing their muttering whispering groaning
flower scents and chanting sutras
drip into memory drop in the rain

在梵唱中開花
-駐足於樂生療養院佛堂邊

【2006/06/23 聯合報】 【詹澈】

百年榕樹還在往下伸長鬚根
陽光在風中翻動百千萬計的樹葉
有一種音樂來自那些根鬚與葉片的樂器
那些弦和鍵
那些髮和舌
那些跪在佛像前的痲瘋病患者
用沒有手掌的手腕
綁過菜刀切菜的手腕
綁著木槌敲著木魚
──木魚游在鐘聲裡
鐘聲遊在雨絲中

那些沒有鼻的魚
沒有眼的蝙蝠
沒有手和腳的蚯蚓
都在木魚鐘聲中
長成他(她)們植栽的桂花 玉蘭花 含笑
花香瀰漫在他(她)們的四大與六根
他(她)們的五官有了各種花的形狀
香氣隱隱引著誦經聲
冥冥中──
從他(她)們殘缺的手掌腳趾鼻脣裡
長出了樹枝與樹葉
開出了桂花 玉蘭花與含笑
含笑的佛菩薩們
在檀香與花香交融中
點亮了暗夜前行的路燈

然而他(她)們將被僵化的法令遷徒
這合於人權的 殖民史的 公衛史的
人類共有的文化古蹟 一群與建築
在官商結構中弱弱無依
然而他(她)們將要去跪拜遊行
用殘缺的紅腫膿血的手腳
向著尖聳的權勢跪拜懇求
帶著噥噥喃喃 嘸嘸唔唔的
在雨聲中滴答著記憶的梵唱與花香

維也納台灣詩選

十二月 19, 2012

2009年在維也納大學讀了三本《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》(2005年,林瑞明選編)。幾年前已經知道2000年有英語、德語有兩本台灣詩選,到現在是英語、德語裡最全的台灣詩選。英語的是馬悅然(Göran Malmqvist)、奚密(Michelle Yeh)、向陽主編的《二十世紀台灣詩選》,中文版2001年出。到現在最全面的,將來還是最全面的德語台灣詩選是廖天琪(Tienchi Martin-Liao)、李敏勇、Ricarda Daberkow主編的《鳳凰樹》。《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》第三本有四首李勤岸詩:<距離學>、<解嚴以後>、<白髮>、<輓聯一對>。2009年春季應台北書展的邀請翻譯了幾首鴻鴻的詩。那年三月他去德國萊比錫書展,我抓機會去見面。
曾經有兩年在台灣學習中文,1988-1990年。那時候還未大學畢業。雖然從小喜歡詩,讀了歐洲幾種語言傳統和現代的詩文,但那時候中文水平相當限制,除了唐詩等等沒讀過很多中文詩歌。那兩年可惜沒學會台語,但是因為碰巧在現任台文筆會主席廖瑞銘台北家租了房間,晚上經常有寶貴的機會談天說地。那時候雖然剛解嚴了,魯迅等現代作家可以公開賣書了,但台灣的大學給外國人教『國語』的老師還都必須是國民黨黨員。記得有一位老師思想比較自由,因為長大喜歡聽收音機聽外地電台有比較寬闊的視界。聽了大陸電台讓他教老外算對他已經不錯。思想比較開放,但當老外學生跟他問二二八,他就說那是武裝起義,至多有幾百人死亡。幸虧只要回家晚上跟房東廖瑞銘先生聊天就可以比較詳細地了解台灣歷史和1980年代末的情況。1990年以後回維也納讀碩士比較專心德語文學。1992年-1993年在上海教德語,1994年在奧地利難民營給因為南斯拉夫戰爭從波斯尼亞來奧地利的難民教德語,替代服兵役。1995年碩士畢業,1995-1996年在武漢教德語,1996年-1998年在歐洲教德語文學。1998-1999年在重慶,1999年-2008年在北京。從2000年開始在北京做翻譯,出了幾本書。因為多年在大陸,雖然非常喜歡黃梁1998-1999年、2009年主編的《大陸先鋒詩叢》,但沒有很多機會認識台灣詩壇。2008年帶妻子杜鵑跟孩子2008年從北京搬回維也納。中文很容易用“回”這個字。孩子們在北京生的,2002年和2005年。
2009年讀了《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》,第三本裡除了李勤岸詩文還很喜歡包括宋澤萊的<告別二十世紀>、利玉芳的<憑弔>、王麗華 <這是自由的國度 >、莫那能的<恢復我們的姓名>、拓拔斯 · 塔瑪匹瑪的<搖籃曲>、<孤魂曲>,還有溫奇的<失眠>、<剝落的日子>等等。《鳳凰樹》和《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》都有陳黎、利玉芳等等。《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》和《二十世紀台灣詩選》都有楊澤、焦桶、瓦歷斯 · 諾幹。《國民文選 · 現代詩卷》竟然沒有夏宇。《二十世紀台灣詩選》有夏宇28首詩,從1980年到1999年。《鳳凰樹》沒有夏宇,但《鳳凰樹》蒐集的詩人到1956年為止。夏宇恰好那年才生出,沒有入選也許還不算那麼奇怪。
《鳳凰樹》一本包括覃子豪(1912年生於中國四川,1925-1937年留日,1963逝)、紀弦(1913年生於中國河北)、陳秀喜(女詩人,1921年生於新竹,1991年逝)、周夢蝶(1920年生於中國河南)、陳千武(1922生於台中縣,先寫日語詩)、林亨泰 (1924年生於彰化,選集題名從林亨泰一首<鳳凰樹>)、杜潘芳格 (女詩人,1927年生於新竹)、錦連 (1928年生於彰化, 會日語)、洛夫(1928年生於中國衡陽)、羅門(1928年生於海南島)、蓉子(女詩人,1928生於中國江蘇)、向明(1928年生於中國長沙)、余光中(1928年生於中國福建)、管管(1929年生於中國青島)、瘂弦(1932年生於中國河南南陽)、何瑞雄(1933年生於高雄,留日)、鄭愁予(1933年生於中國濟南)、林冷(女詩人,1938年於中國四川)、林宗源(1935年生於台南,寫台灣話)、非馬(1936生於台中)、白萩(1937年生於台中)、李魁賢(1937年生於台北縣)、葉維廉(1937年生於中國廣東中山)、朵思(女詩人,1939年生於嘉義)、張香華(女詩人,1939年生於中國福建)、許達然(1940年生於台南)、楊牧(1940年生於花蓮)、杜國清(1941年生於台中縣)、吳晟(1944年生於彰化)、曾貴海(1946生於屏東縣)、陳芳明(1947年生於高雄)、李敏勇(1947年生於恆春)、陳明臺(1948年生於台中縣)、江自得(1948年生於台中)、羅青(1948年生於中國湘潭)、莫渝(1948年生於苗栗)、鄭炯明(1948年生於台南)、陳鴻森(1950年生於高雄)、百靈(1951年生於中國福建)、陳坤崙(1952年生於高雄)、利玉芳(女詩人,1952年生於屏東縣)、陳黎(1954年生於花蓮縣)、楊澤(1954年生於嘉義縣)、詹澈(1954年生於彰化縣)、向陽(1955年生於南頭縣)、莫那能(1956年生於台東縣)。
《鳳凰樹》總共有46位詩人,34位譯者;是一本非常全面的、多元化的、具有台灣本色的詩選。不過沒有1930年出生於中國四川、2010年逝世的商禽,沒有1951年出生的李勤岸、1954年出生的王麗華。(尚禽有一本《夢或者黎明》2006年在德國出版,譯者Peter Hoffmann.)
2009年我翻譯了周夢蝶、鄭愁予、楊澤幾首詩,選入在德國法蘭克福書展代表台灣的一本《台灣現代詩選集》,中德雙語。除了周夢蝶、鄭愁予、楊澤還有余光中、洛夫、尚勤、瘂弦、隱地、楊木、席慕蓉(女詩人,蒙古族)、夏宇、鴻鴻。可以說外省人比較多。
我最近翻譯了陳克華,今年春天翻譯了吳音寧。2012年二月受邀去參加台北國際書展,同樣二月份在台灣參加了一些文化、文學活動,包括去台南參觀台灣文學館。那時候覺得雖然最近十幾年多半做翻譯,翻譯了中國文學作品,也出了幾本書,但是沒有翻譯很多台灣文學。所以回奧地利一面為文訊雜誌做翻譯,一面讀書、考慮翻譯台灣文學的計劃。最後覺得編詩選可以採用自己的詩歌熱愛和經驗。可以翻譯不同時代、作家的詩歌,並翻譯賴香吟的小說。希望可以讓德語讀者更深地了解台灣當代文學、文化、歷史、社會等等。可以促進文化交流,互相更多了解、合作。
我的同事梅儒佩(Rupprecht Mayer)已經翻譯了尚勤、陳黎的詩,還有鴻鴻。我這幾年也翻譯了鴻鴻的詩,還有夏宇、陳克華、吳音寧等等。夏宇還想翻譯很多,應該單獨出另一本書。新竹市教書的倪國榮先生幫我們聯繫到莫那能,倪老師自己的詩作也很值得收入幾首。還有幾位年輕的詩人,都聯繫上了。到現在未能聯繫到瓦歷斯 · 諾幹。如果維也納台灣詩選還可以採用上面提到的宋澤萊、王麗華、利玉芳、拓拔斯 · 塔瑪匹瑪、溫奇就會最理想的。詩選計劃在2013年秋天在維也納Löcker出版社出版。奧地利筆會(Austrian PEN, Dr. Helmuth Niederle 主任)支持本計劃。已經申請了台灣文學館的補助。

Liao Yiwu in Taipei

二月 12, 2012

I went to a great reading/ concert/ political happening by Liao Yiwu in Taipei tonight. It was organized by Wang Dan’s New School for Democracy. First time Liao performed his legendary poem Massacre from the night before June 4th, 1989 in public for a Chinese-speaking audience. Very memorable experience. People wept and remembered the White Terror and the Feb. 28, 1947 massacre in Taiwan. The case of Zhu Yufu, who got 7 years for a poem in China, was mentioned several times. Liao Yiwu was asked for his opinions about the controversy around the boss of the Want Want conglomerate and media czar (China Times etc.) who recently denied there was a major massacre in 1989. Liao Yiwu reaffirmed the answer he had given at Taipei International Book Fair. He just said he wasn’t very interested what some merchant would have to say. They would say anything to please Beijing, and unfortunately they would get away with it very easily. Liao was also very critical of the book fair. Glossy and haphazard in many ways, that was his impression. No dignity for authors, no thorough organisation of readings. Well, I must say I liked all the events I saw or participated in. The show girls and the people walking around advertising discounts did not give the impression of a very cultured event, rather like some market selling everything aside from books, just like Liao said. But they certainly did have some well organized readings, and international highlights in French and German, for example. Anyway, Liao Yiwu’s performance tonight was a very exceptional event. I think they recorded it, and I heard it was broadcasted live on the Internet. Don’t know where exactly. Liao was asked what he thought about the relation of literature and politics. He spoke about reading Orwell’s 1984 in jail, and talked about the parts leading up to the end of the novel, how Winston is broken with the use of a rat and made to rat out his girlfriend, and how he loves Big Brother as he is taken away to be shot. Perfect example for his own aesthetics, Liao said. He still supports people doing ‘pure literature’, goes to poetry readings about the Full Moon Sound Magazine (http://fullmoonsoundmagazine.tumblr.com/) and stuff like that. He was not interested in politics until 1989, he said. The Hakka songstress Luo Sirong sung a very poignant lullaby at the end. This part would not have been forbidden in China. Liao’s performance was so intense it made you vary of police barging in. But the most precious thing was the whole event together, the songs and the music, the talks and discussions. The strong interaction made it all very special and rare.
