黄金时代

(时代三部曲 #1)

《黄金时代(白金收藏版)》为王小波经典作品最值得收藏硬精装典藏版。这是以文革时期为背景的系列作品构成的长篇。发生“文化大革命”的二十世纪六七十年代,正是我们国家和民族的灾难年代。那时,知识分子群体无能为力而极“左”政治泛滥横行。作为倍受歧视的知识分子,往往丧失了自我意志和个人尊严。在这组系列作品里面,名叫“王二”的男主人公处于恐怖和荒谬的环境,遭到各种不公正待遇,但他却摆脱了传统文化人的悲愤心态,创造出一种反抗和超越的方式:既然不能证明自己无辜,便倾向于证明自己不无辜。

我觉得他的东西需要更多人知道 了,更多的人阅读,但是掺杂着中国社会情况和历史又让翻译工作很难进行(这是我猜的)。Those things with dust and blood , but Wang made them shiny.

Profound. The book keeps me trying hard to understand what is the underlying message, with mixed styles of humor, vulgar, and seemingly unreasonable intricate reasoning. I am still guessing. And I am slowly getting to the point to feel like one of the bull who get repeated hammered to numbness, and the helpless individual who try to escape the unpredictable bad draws in a society ordered by the mingled power instead of rule of law, and a perpetual loser who once was an idealistic youth craved fo ...more

我是怎么知道王小波的呢?想想。
想不起来了,突然那么一天就觉得,啊哟这个人真特么酷。先是看到了他的那篇《沉默的大多数》,第一眼就是这个标题党,什么玩意儿。不过看完之后觉得,这哥们儿讲得不错。虽然语句奇葩了一点,不过还挺讽刺的。后来遇到了《独立特行的猪》,马德第一次这么想当一头猪。干死你们。
有人评价小波说,他这样的人,有的人很喜欢他觉得他是先知;有的人很讨厌他,觉得他是流氓。我更倾向于后者,因为我知道我自己这辈子也做不了流氓,所以非常羡慕他。那种不带脸皮伤害人,有事没事找个美丽善良的姑娘敦一敦伟大的友谊,并且告诉她她不是一双破鞋的行为,在我看来就特么很酷。生而为人,只此一生,敢爱敢去恨。
王小波的文字,大抵算得上我读过的几本书里面最有趣的了。我身边还有一个姑娘,在我看来多少继承了一点这样的风格,当然提出了那些流氓的句子。所以她的句子读起来,特别贴心温暖。让我感觉,这个世界,就是为她而生。能遇见这样的人,我很幸运。

Black-comedy set in the countryside during the Cult Rev with lots of sex. I think there is an English translation out of this under the title 'In Love and Bondage'.

I left my copy of this in a bag which I left in a cab shortly after I finished the first short story. Going to see if I can get the rest on the internets.

The way he describes things is really easy to understand and simple to relate to. Very clever, but a bit frustrating. Reading his book is like putting your head, constantly, between a rock and a hard place. He wrote every image so vividly that it feels like you’re in front of it, and then he repeated it along the book so that it stuck in your head!

——Thick hormonal breath is coming.

"Golden Age" describes the story between informed Wang Er and doctor Chen Qingyang. Its bold description of sex and love is different from other literature that describes the life of educated youth.

Wang Xiaobo, born in Beijing in 1952 and died in 1997. He had worked as an educated youth, a private teacher, and a worker. Representative works: "Golden Age", "Silver Age", "Bronze Age", "Black Iron Age", etc.

One of the best books about the impacts that the Cultural Revolution has left on people. The language is so refreshing and unique that it gives me a feeling of detachment while reading it like I was also one of the shady clouds in the sky watching the story unfolds. The sex part is both vulgar and extremely pure at the same time.

I actually did not remember that I read this book long time ago during my college. However, there was one day, I start listening to the audial-book of it, then I realized that I finished reading it.
Great book for that time.

再痛苦也要嬉皮笑脸。主人公们各有自己的一套“歪理”以适应生存的年代,而发明这些道理的作者,把一切都看得透透的

很少遇到这种让人无法评价的书。讲着最粗俗的事,却带出了整个历史背景。明明描述的是赤裸裸的性爱,但是却完全不淫荡,不污秽,性爱反而是书中最纯洁的部分。

Hell of a reading experience
Feiyu Yin
原来你是这样的王小波。如果和王二在小时候认识的话,我们可能会成为很好的狐朋狗友。
这书真是荒诞不经,但读起来会让人上瘾。读着读着可能一下午就过去了。读完后给我印象最深的是他对女人胸部和屎橛子的描写(两者并没有出现在同一个场景下)。前者有美感,后者让我一度食欲不振。
总体来说这书与屌丝精神契合度挺高。王二是革命时代反动坏分子屌丝男,却有总有无产阶级先进女同志甘愿奉献自己来从心灵和身体上拯救他。不得不赞叹革命的友谊是多么伟大!
(写这书绝对有给自己过干瘾的嫌疑)

莫名其妙地开始读,然后莫名其妙地一晚上读完了,然后还是觉得莫名其妙。不过确实可以理解文中的一些讽刺,只是大概没有介绍中那么清晰。意外地短,但倒是不坏,不然说不定会占用很多睡眠时间。

这是一个交织现实和浪漫的时代。
浪漫主义对我有致命的吸引力——“比之争取胜利,忍受失败更加永恒。而真正的失败又是多么的让人魂梦系之呀。”多么歇斯里底,多么迷人灿烂,多么耀眼夺目。
