Is Red Sorghum a true story

2018-05-15 06:24:50

Red Sorghum is a novel written by Mo Yan, not a true story. Red Sorghum is a novella written by Mo Yan, a contemporary Chinese writer. The background of Red Sorghum is the Anti-Japanese War and the folk life in Northeast China in the 1930s and 1940s. However, a series of heroes portrayed in the story are the incarnations of justice and evil. The hero Yu Zhanao is a warm-blooded man, whose body is full of justice and barbarism. The whole symbol system of Red Sorghum is a multi-faceted and multi-level aesthetic category, in which the characters' language is vulgar and filthy rural language such as coarse words, dirty words, wild words, meat words, cursing words, flirting words, etc., which is a typical farmer's speech. This kind of language, which is almost crazy in the eyes of others, has a unique beauty in the context of the novel. This language style shows the author's unique aesthetic taste. The dialogue of characters in Red Sorghum is a highlight of the work. Personalized folk spoken language runs through the story. In the local atmosphere, readers can not only feel the original "vulgarity" of folk spoken language, but also hear the cry of the most primitive and noble power from the bottom of life behind the vulgarity.
