Pdf [Balzac et la Petite Tailleuse chinoise] ô Dai Sijie

Boys discover that another of their compatriots Four Eyes has somehow smuggled a suitcase of books into the ncampment Literature of any kind is seen as reactionary so the two boys are instantly ager to read these novels After they have stolen a book by Balzac they are whisked away to a world of limitless possibilities They want novels As a responsibility to their re ducation they have to travel to different villages sharing stories of the Chairman but in fact they are trying to live the life they have xperienced in Balzac s novel One of the few people they ntrust with their secret of literature is a seamstress From the onset Luo and the seamstress begin a relationship For the most part this relationship is only rudimentary to the story until Four Eyes has been *seen fit as being re ducated Four Eyes is now able to leave as being been *seen fit as being re ducated Four Eyes is now able to leave as being ducated Four Eyes is now able to leave Mountain with Four Eyes leaving the books are certainly to leave with him Luo and the narrator devise a plan to steal the rest of the books When they succeed the world of literature xplodes upon them like a starburst fired into a pitch dark night illuminating Dostoevsky Hugo Dickens Kipling Emily Bronte Tolstoy Gogol Flaubert Dumas Stendhal Romain Rolland and Rousseau They have the makings of a fine library and dedicate different volumes to ach other during Christmas and festive celebrations Soon the narrator develops a penchant for his own storytelling and is able to intertwine stories from the novels with stories of his own Life seems tolerable now Then Luo s mother gets sick He has to leave the mountain And the narrator is left to protect the little Chinese seamstress from all the suitors that lurk around her tiny hut I will not say what happens here as it would give away the nding of the novelThe author Dai Sijie has woven an intricate tale some autobiographical lements around the power and majesty of storytelling Sometimes nothing happens in the story but that is Sijie s way of sharing with the reader the power and beauty of language When the plot does liven up it is told with a steady hand Throughout the novel I could not help but think Could I go from a world full of books to one without Would I be able to keep the treasure of novels secret In the nd these are personal uestions that only the reader may answer In what many other reviewers have seen as uaint or schmaltzy I find ndearing A great read for lovers of books and the feelings they get after reading a remarkable storyHIGHLY RECOMMENDED Sweet charming story with a fable uality The story revolves around a part of history that I feel somewhat ignorant about the story takes place during the Chinese cultural revolution a time in history where communism was a means to suppress and take away individuality Life is controlled under the regime of Mao Zedong chairman of the Chinese communist party and restrictions take place where revolutionary literature is forbidden and higher learning is discouraged a time when boys where taken away from their towns and then placed into primitive little villages with the sole purpose of reeducation The main characters the two boys in this book find a surprising scape from their harsh daily activities when they stumble upon a suitcase full of forbidden works of western fiction and their whole world suddenly opens up I love the simplicity of this story and the uirky narrative with lots of traditional Chinese lements and traditions sprinkled in that I felt instantly nchanted by it Although the story is simple the message is a strong one it shows the transformative power of books and literature and how it has the ability to change and provoke thoughts and thinking I love how the Buried ending ties the little Chinese seamstress to the main theme of the book and I adored thending which left me feeling uplifted and joyous On its surface this book has all the ingredients for a really interesting read a fascinating historical period potentially interesting characters and the freuently uite compelling topic of the use or function of literature within literature Unfortunately I felt like Sijie failed to live up to the greatness of his own project The Cultural Revolution is supposedly the force that propels this story forward It is after all the reason for which the main character and his best friend Luo are sent to the countryside for their re ducation however I get the feeling that none of this could actually have happened during the Cultural Revolution which presents an interesting dilemma and calls the ntire book into uestion The Revolution the Communist Party and their respective trappings are sometimes present but often conspicuously absent from the story giving the characters a convenient freedom when it is needed and the story a sort of lamely suspenseful tone when things seem to be lagging a bit In the nd it seems like the Cultural Revolution and the re ducation process are just sort of there to make the story interesting in spite of the seminal role that they should be playing in the text One gets the impression that perhaps Sijie too.

K on a bit too muchThe characters and story are also woefully underdeveloped I read the book over the course of one day in part because it was a uick read that kept me vaguely interested but also because the novel reads like a half fleshed out outline of a future project There is a lack of detail and development that I found particularly bothersome specially as I felt like it would have been particularly interesting if the novelist had attempted to pay homage to the authors that his two young heroes admire Unfortunately Sijie s writing was far too inferior to do such a thing Further he often fails to maintain a consistent tone which vacillates between casual and lofty without any real reason for a switchI ve rated this book three stars in spite of my review I did still njoy it to a certain degree Enough obviously to plow through it in a day Would I read it again No Would I recommend it to anyone Probably not Was it decent Yeah pretty much I mean yeah it was decent I Glitter Bomb (A Scrapbooking Mystery, enjoyed it but I wouldn t say that it was a good book by any means To be honest I was suspicious of anything carrying the label best seller prior to picking this one up I am nowven leery of that ualification Set during the Il morto di Maigret early 1970 s when Mao sent the intellectuals to the provinces to be reducated to life as peasants two young men are assigned to a small remote village One plays a violin The other has a gift for telling stories They ndure the labors assigned by the opium growers who rule the area and are desperate for any sort of intellectual stimulation The local chief assigns them to travel two days to the nearest town in which films are shown then report back to the town the ntirety of the films There is another reclamation project in the town Four Eyes He has a hidden trove of books and when they do him a service he allows them to borrow a novel by Balzac This is manna from heaven for them and they plan how they might acuire books from Four Eyes The Little Seamstress of the title is a beautiful young woman who becomes lover to one of the young men both are in their late teens She is the uneducated daughter of a local tailor a man of some status in this area They share their tale of Balzac with her Other characters nter the picture a lice ridden hermit Four Eyes mother and the town leader Spoiler alert here do not read further if you want to learn plot details for yourselfLittle Seamstress becomes pregnant While the responsible boy is away on town business the friend takes her to the nearest town to help her get an abortion He would like nothing than to woo her for himself but ultimately his kindness goes unrewarded as having gotten a sense ven if at one remove that there is a world beyond her little village the Little Seamstress leaves to seek her fortune in the big city The boys are left high and dryThe final few chapters are told from alternating points of view the Seamstress the old miller the younger lad It is a bit jarring if illuminatingThe story has a beauty to it that bears some close inspection I am certain that I could dissect the many details of the story for symbolic payload I have not done that I get the feeling though that there is richness there beyond the surface simplicity though that there is richness there beyond the surface simplicity the tale This is a uick and pretty read and is heartily recommended A charming book written with astute uickness Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress is both Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System, Third Edition erudite and approachable It is full of details that absolutely make the scenes pop with vividness but it does not dawdle over what is not necessary It is a story with a point Which is where this book falls apart Despite its captivation of the reader its uick pace its interesting plot this short novel begins to come apart when perspectives are suddenly shifted why and then again at thend I think that the problem is that this book gives great argument against the very thing that it lauds only it does not seem to realize it It is a book so Billionaires Contract Engagement (Kings of the Boardroom enraptured in its cute story its nice little package that it fails to truly consider what it is saying Alas thending is something of a disappointment that tempers the Sexual Secrets enthusiastic praise I can otherwise heap on it Don txpect much from this little book despite its great fforts to convince you there is something to xpect and you shall njoy it as you blaze through the pages Set aside a few hours to read this one non stop and schedule something immediately afterward to wash the taste of the nding away Two urban Chinese boys 17 and 18 when the story starts are sent to a farming village to do rural work as part of their re ducation under Mao s cultural revolution Their terms are indefinite because their parents doctors and dentists were considered bourgeois nemies of the people The author was himself re ducated in China between 1971 and 1974 and has lived in France since 1984 The book is translated from the French All the *UNIVERSITIES WERE CLOSED AND ALL BOYS *were closed and all boys girls who had graduated from high school were sent off Math physics and chemistry were dropped from the school curriculum and replaced by. N beiden neuen Lieben in ums andere Mal The West Transformed: A History of Western Civilization, Vol 1, to 1715 entscheiden Aber dann nimmt die Handlung plötzlichine ganz andere Wende Wir flüsterten Namen in die Dunkelheit heißt s inmal im Roman als Luo und der Ich Erzähler über die verbotenen Bücher sprechen und der Klang der Worte die Reihenfolge der Silben beschworen fremde geheimnisvolle Welten Genau das ist auch Dai Sijie mit seinem wunderschönen Roman gelungen dessen Handlung mit all ihrer poetischen Magie man igentlich gar nicht nacherzählen kann Was für in Zauberer dieser Dai Sijie Thomas Köster.
