              By Shaogong, Han

              Winner of the Shanghai Literary Prize, this book tells the story of a young man sent to work the land in a small village in rural China, during the Cultural Revolution (1966-76).

              Belittle Important Matters (EPUB ebook)

              By Shaogong, Han

              I have been engaged in literary writing for thirty years. Looking back at these scattered footprints behind me, I often feel guilty. With my keen interest in science and my achievements in self-study, being an engineer or doctor is probably a well-reasoned prospect of life. If it... wasn't for the fate of the Cultural Revolution, I would not have slipped into the path of writing. I think I lacked of the talent of writing and I don't believe in the extraordinary power of literature. I just have no choice but to write and do it in response to the needs of the times. I just have some depression and dull pain in my heart and cannot give up some repeated thoughts and deep wishes. Therefore, I exclaim against injustice unscrupulously.

              South to the Mountains and North to the Waters (EPUB ebook)

              By Shaogong, Han

              This collection of works includes major works of Han Shaogong, accounting for about 70% to 80% of the total published works. Taking the opportunity of publishing the collection, the author revised some of the works. The situations involved can be roughly divided into three types:... The first situation is restoration. Since the late 1970s, there has been a process of gradual relaxation in the standard of publication censorship in mainland China. At the beginning, the author's autonomy was not sufficient. Sometimes, especially in the early days of literature unfreezing, some newspaper editors often forced the author to make big amendments or even directly made amendments for the author out of some scruples-excluding occasional cutting happening when there was not enough space on the page. Various deletions of the works in publication were not made according to the author's will. In today's view, they are more of historical regrets and deserve restoration to their original editions as far as possible. The second situation is explanation. With the rapid changes in China's real life, the public context is changed more frequently and easily. Some common expressions used ten to twenty years ago, such as "Four Kinds of People", "Production Team", "Commune", "Work Point" and "Family Background", are now puzzling to many people. If some informal names in a certain period, such as "Cellular Phone" and "Dacron", are kept, they will also cause reading difficulties for later generations. In order to facilitate intergenerational communication, the author made appropriate changes to some outdated terms or added some explanatory words on the premise of retaining the original text. The third situation is patchy.

              The Era of Comrades (EPUB ebook)

              The Era of Comrades is a literary work of Han Shaogong, and records those people and things in the era of comrades. Today, the society and the literature are advancing in the direction of diversification; the writers' creative ideas and expressions and the readers' needs and read...ing interests are becoming more and more diversified; the entertainment function of literature is valued; various literary trends are all inclusive and have their own ways of development.

              The Live History - Reading Notes (PDF ebook)

              By Shaogong, Han

              "Someone once said history is literature.This is not unreasonable.Reading history should be like reading literature. We must pay attention to details and experience and understand life."I think this paragraph can be understood as Han Shaogong's basic methodology of reading histor...y - reading the thought, reading the politics, and reading the life from lifestyle history, history of customs and culture, and history of everyday language.- Huang Ziping, "I am a novelist and prose writer and I'm concerned about living people."Because of this habit, when reading history, it is inevitably that my thoughts fly far away. I would like image the past by our era to see the people and life behind words... It is at least interesting to read history in this way. Everything in front of you will become vivid with more image, feel and even flavor.? ?? Han Shaogong

              Implication (EPUB ebook)

              By Shaogong, Han

              Implication is the penetration of meanings, and also a test of the senses and the mind. The reason why people ignore various implications of life is usually not the busy and hard work as they argue, but more of an escape and hiding. A person with a shrinking mind can't stand the ...direct look in the eye by pure eyes and plain objects. Modern people are accustomed to estrangement livelihood and they try to avoid things that were once familiar to them. Although they often make nostalgic gestures, they are not willing to ask questions and refuse to dig into the scale of the soul. In Implication, Han Shaogong made a shocking analysis and a revaluation of familiar things. Writers have completed silent deconstruction in quiet narration, which can be seen in many works, including the loyal-font-dance of the Cultural Revolution era, Red Sun, the Iron Ladies and the current TV series, karaoke advertising and performance art.

              Dictionary of Maqiao (Revised Edition) (EPUB ebook)

              By Shaogong, Han

              Dictionary of Maqiao (Revised Edition) carefully selects writers with outstanding achievements, distinct style and extensive influence after mid and late 1970s, and sorts, summaries and selects their works in a comprehensive manner. Works of each writer are made into series, whic...h are different in number of volumes and named after title of certain work (book name of long works). Dictionary of Maqiao (Revised Edition) is one of the series of books for reading and appreciation. I've been engaged in literature writing for 30 years, and often feel ashamed of the scattered works. Given my great interests in science and results of self-study, I could probably become an engineer or doctor. It's unlikely for me to engage in writing without the impacts of 'Cultural Revolution' since I neither have the talents required to be a literator, nor believe in the power of literatures. It's more like an inevitable choice and yield to my fate, a suppression and hidden pain in my heart as well as an obsession and strong will, which make me expressing discontents.
