I have not seen it for over thirty years, so today when I saw it I felt in unusually high spirits. ” Since I could not sleep anyway, I read intently half the night until I began to see words between the lines. ”11 Through this deranged vision, a rupture is inevitably produced, an extrahistorical or posthistorical perspective is formed, and a modern subject is born at a moment of absolute illumination. But what instantly complicates this vision or illumination is that this new modern subject should at the same time recognize his own embeddedness in premodern history: later the 24 ● Contemporary Chinese Literature Madman indeed suspects that he himself might have participated in eating his younger sister.
Reading through those of his poems written in the atmosphere of terror and oppression that characterized the decade of the Cultural Revolution (1966–76), one senses that history is repeating itself, that China is now being plunged back into the same old nightmare. ”9 In fact, these two maxims go hand in hand and to a certain extent have determined the whole course of Western modernist poetry since the nineteenth century. Charles Baudelaire, according to Rimbaud in this letter, was the first seer.
Duo Duo recognizes that what has most likely doomed Marina would equally be in the offing for him. This realization in turn helps him prepare for his own future. By appropriating the Russian poetess’s fate into the Chinese context, Duo Duo projects the present of China onto a comparative historical screen. Intertextuality becomes, for Duo Duo, the most immediate way to make sense of the labyrinth that he is in. ”49 This poem is divided, accordingly, into three parts: A, B, C. Part A reads like a summary of and commentary on the Russian Revolution itself: The year of nineteen seventeen descended On the sober and desolate land of the beginning of this century The heavy-hearted attention of history, moved to the East (…) A strange baby was born like this Descending from a clay womb Into the cold candlelight of the Winter Palace This rigid baby who could not get freedom Used his first cry to curse To shock—the whole world blessed by God This stubborn baby in a pool of blood Was what had been conceived long since And had been pushed to birth with violence by country folk That is: The International Proletariat (…) From then on history had been painted by artists and painting workers As red noons Red gravestones of predecessors, red Swords of revenge of the martyrs Just like Boris Pasternak’s novel, from which the poem derives its title, there is something very unorthodox and ambivalent about this depiction.
