Different Chinese calligraphy scripts In a long history of Chinese language, Chinese characters evolved and are simplified. We say there are five scripts. Actually there are more but we don't know much about the scripts before Jia Gu Wen so we call all scripts at and before Qin dynasty as Zhuan Shu. The characters are carved on bones or tortoise shells.
The whole experience made me believe that I had zero aptitude for languages. Howeve There is no way I can adequately describe how much of a shock it was to me that I was enjoying this experience of reading this book especially since I was reading it in Chinese.
And, to my great shock, I found myself gripped by it. This was despite the fact that I was having to check the dictionary every five words or so.
The entire work spans the period when she was between three to twelve years old i.
Her home town was a small agricultural town out in the north-western boondocks. It was one of those god-forsaken towns with two streets to its name, where people lived with their pigs and chickens running and shitting in and around their houses. The biggest excitement of the year was watching the shifting clouds during the summer sunsets.
A thin slice of toufu once a week was a big treat. Otherwise, dinner was mostly rice with condiments: The people never left their town.
They were simple folk: They would simply say, "Life is about eating rice and wearing clothes. After praying they would leave. There was nothing else they wanted from her.
They venerated her for nothing else. She was in the end, after all, only a woman. The only thing that made her special was that she had many children. Men beating their wives would say, "Even the goddess fears being beaten by her husband, what more a gossipy bitch like you.
Its power comes from the ambivalent love-hate relationship she had with it. While despising what the people did, she did not despise them. Whipping girls is okay. When you mistreat pigs, they lose weight. As a result of her breakdown, the child bride—she is never given a name—is thought to be possessed by demons and many exorcisms are performed.
None of them, not surprisingly, succeed. The final exorcism involves cleansing her in a public ceremony. She is lowered naked into a large pot of simmering water three times.
The results ultimately prove fatal. I watched the pot, but the child bride could no longer be seen.
She had fainted, falling into the water. At this, the spectators started to yell anxiously.
They thought she might have died, and ran up to save her. Those with kind hearts started crying. When the child bride was still alive, when she had been struggling and trying to flee, those very spectators trying to save her now had been the very ones who helped to restrain her and lower her into the simmering water.
Now she was unconscious, and they now wanted to help her. They took her out of the pot and splashed some cold water on her.
How could they not but feel pained from seeing the child bride thus, once happy and vibrant, now close to death? The scene is all the more heart-wrenching because these people think that with the exorcism they are helping her. After the bath, scalded, she slips into a coma.Seal Glossary.
