    Palpitation The word itself brims with mystifying sounds The flip flopping of the heart muscle attuned to the ambience of the twelve tone symphony, fingers smoothly gliding over the chromatic keys of a piano, the steady tempo of the inherent music fluctuating within the irregularities of variable frequency of the cardiac rhythm, the fleeting pause descending into the pentatonic scales of a violin finding its way into the emptiness of a skipped heartbeat, synchronize the tingling of a body The words of the heart coiled into the tremulous effect of rapid repetitions coursing through incessant throbbing The forbearance of the heart melting away in the furnace of lawful decree Yama, the King of Hell pacifying the cries of Little Insect The bearded goat at the mercy of the white snake The seduction of the white snake pitying the fool of the tiger The pigs and dogs scrambling out of the fear of armed wolves Amid snarling jackrabbits, the vicious panther pounces on the white tigers the magical tiger s whiskers drenched in the reverberations of an anxious heart The black cat singing melodic, heartbreaking elegies, the feline cries swirling in bereaved hearts The strings of mao hu cat fiddle birthing the opera of life and death, the stubborn ox designing the aesthetic antiquity of death a rooster crowing at the sight of twin leather straps The extravagant vocal arias of .sandal wood death, a term with a rough exterior but an aesthetic core, displaying the patina and aura of antiquity , overriding the myth of humans being reincarnated from animals, the animalistic demeanour of humans dishonourably indulgent than their primal rebirthing mammal souls Man being worst than animals .what is known as execution is an art, one that a good man will not do and anyone who is not a good man cannot do Executioner is an occupation that represents the heart and soul of the Imperial Court When the calling flourishes, the Imperial Court prospers But when it languishes, the Imperial Court nears its fated end Mo Yan s graphically meticulous illustration of the execution acts signifies the central stance of the death penalty and the concurrent gory sentencing in China s Imperial 1900s political sphere The piece of blood soaked human flesh quivering in the executioner s malodorous palm acquaints the reader with the cruel method employed by the codes of criminal law to inflict maximum amount of suffering Mo Yan s embellished prose may at times be a graphical hyperbole yet the elucidated display of harsh rule to install fear of retribution, certainly does not underplay the archives of reality The Plenipotentiary wants to know how long the condemned can live after he s cut in half Executions being made enjoyable than a stage play Loyalty , the mocking sentiment only adhering to the bearing of the subordinates confirms the nauseating truth of the burden of law lying solely on the shoulders of a common man.Is an executioner the dregs of the society A man at the bottom of the heap Mo Yan debates the societal hierarchy, grading human existence by classifying stereotypic standards of rank, academia and vocation The reckless mind set of the hierarchical superiors towards the lives of those thriving on the margins of the society mapping the foundation of savage reality of societal absurdity pertaining to obsolete lowly profession at variance with the aristocracy of heritable titles If there was no executioner to culminate the penalty, then who would carry out the dire job of decapitation If there was no butcher, then who would put a perfectly cut slice of meat on a decorated plate If there were no daily workforce, then who would construct the railroads No job is menial no job is disgraceful, for all jobs are done by humans meant for their utmost survival And every trade has its master, its zhuangyuan .he was neither a laotaiye nor a yuanwailang he was the preeminent executioner in the Board of Punishments, a magician with the knife, a peerless decapitator, a man capable of inflicting the cruelest punishments, including some of his own design, a true creative geniusZhao Jia was a survivor grabbing every opportune circumstance, the zhuangyuan of the executioners serving for than four decades at the Board of Punishments A debt of gratitude released from the humble butcher s abode, the craft singing the soliloquy of the sandalwood death Maoqiang, otherwise known as Cat Opera, is an operatic genre created and developed in Northeast Gaomi Township The arias are exquisite, the staging unique, the ambience magical in short, it is the ideal portrayal of life in the township Meow..MeowLife s last opera enthralling the audience with the pomposity of death A nation in peril, the citizens of Northeast Gaomi forever in revolt, paying the price of being heroic The commanding policy of Kaiser Wilhelm, the autocracy of Von Ketteler , the operatic songs of mutiny drenched in bloodbaths , Sun Bing , the inheritor of the Maoqiang Opera tradition, a man of prestige among his peers, chose vengeance over the overbeaten virtue of forbearance Sun Bing, a master performer and a rebellious reformer, rebelled against the German supremacy in China ,the railroads swarmed with the mutinous Boxer Rebellion Mo Yan depiction of Sun Bing amalgamates the vibrant grandeur of the Opera and the humility of a single erhu retelling the tales of societal subjugation and familial fidelity, chasing the sound and the image of perspicacity and crazed laughter, questioning the validity of the undertaken rebellion Mo Yan opens each chapter with a sombre aria staging lyrical segments of villain and heroes caught in a lifelong revolutionary opera reciting a resplendent narrative to eager listeners Sun Bing who acted on the operas stage for most of his life became the spectacular drama himself.In his exquisite literary pieces, Mo Yan s treatment to his women protagonist is commendable Mo Yan s women irrespective to their muddled sentimentalities and promiscuous play of feminine charm are a potent mixture of fearlessness and empathy Having lived up till then among a performing troupe, Meiniang knew all the acrobatic moves for the opera stage, and she had never been schooled in the traditional feminine imperatives of three obediences first to father, then to husband, and finally to son and the four virtues of fidelity, physical charm, propriety, and fine needlework.Sun Meiniang s scheming ways of using her feminine beauty for personal gain, erases the proverbial notion of happiness as a spotless sentiment In a savage land, the virtuous emotion of contentment is soiled by the specks of duplicity Meiniang s definition of happiness strikes a balance between physical promiscuity, her undying love for her dieh father and the desire to have had the beauty of lotus feet A true gratification in fated circumstance with no moral strings attached Suffering is the road to respectability danger is the path to prominence onstage In death, the sorrowful cry of the bird oscillates in the benevolence of a dying man The ordinary citizen, the perennial common man swallowing insults and humiliation grasping the vulnerable nonsensical pillars of forbearance and loyalty courts the disaster of annihilation when flouts the authoritative decree Slowly but sternly, Mo Yan layers complexities of human emotion juxtaposing ironies of tangled relationship and passionate spirit for subsistence in a dramatically charged atmosphere bestowing a humane side to every penned character besieged by their incommodious circumstances and societal status The magical surrealism of the opera overlapping the savage reality of corporeal punishments and the socio political ambiguity steeped in the operatic act of immorality and probity Mo Yan s protagonists are distinctive role players vacillating in physical and emotional rhythm and rhyme of hunger, passion, desire and bravery The intricacies of the characters are viewed through a bifocal lens mirroring within the person s conscience, diminishing the myopic stance of ethics Qian Ding s drunken melancholic confession exemplifies the relevant quandary The fierce melodic opus depicting the stimulus of life and the opulence of death swings in musicality of the modernization and traditionalism chronicles the past and the present The sorghum rich land of Gaomi Township reeks of sweat, blood, urine, putrefying human flesh and abhorrence of humanity and yet, from these acrid stench emits the sweet fragrance of resilience, devotion, heroism and love for a dignified existence The dead are noble, the living worthless In the prophetic Maoqiang recitals, Mo Yan raises the imperative question Who is the rightful owner of the titular sagacity of being a dignified individual Those who let go of their virtue of forbearance to seek equitable vengeance or those who bravely accept death penalties entangled within the lawless discrepancies or those whose lives are trampled on the whims and fancies of political supremacy or then those who call themselves the benevolent righteous protectors of the law and the land Mo Yan chronicles the historical acrobats through an operatic act like narrative configuration, highlighting crucial historical event and figures carving a political dais for an allegorical satire of life and death set during the 1900s China, coursing through the egocentric reign of Empress Dowager Cixi, the intense socio institutional Wuxu Reform Movement and the influential anti imperialist Boxer Rebellion The political history forms a secondary stratum to this illusory musicality political satire infusing elements of dark humour to the problematic conundrum of corruption, Imperial tyranny and the vulnerability of individual lives Each of the Gaomi residents misplaced a part of their identity in their will to survive The ordinary lives that go unnoticed throughout the perfidious walks of life, find an eternal glory in the cannibalistic brutality of death Sardonically, the mislaid beauteous solemnity of the living is ultimately found in the opulence of death.Recounting this glorious work, Mo Yan articulates it is all about the sound.it was the sound that planted the seed for the novel and drove its creation The historical romance of human resilience evoked in the rhythmical timbre through the inimitable chorus of Maoqiang opera merging the mournful strains of nightly train whistles into the surrealism of enchanted fox fairies, the persistent semblance of sound perforating the consciousness amid the ocular pathways created as annotations of the sound Subsequently, as Mo Yan plants the seed of his sounds in his heart, I lock my eyes onto the soaring sorghum stalks scattering the grains of a valiant Gaomi, my ears affixed on the enthralling prose, I unwearyingly immerse in the kip..kip..kip of the rat gnawing into the dark corner, the crackling of the tanned skin with the very first bloody incision , the sharpness of the knife puncturing the smoothness of the glistening flesh, the squeals of the pigs, the shrieks of humans, the melancholic arias piercing through societal ambiguity , the excruciating screams of the dying shuddering the bashful clatter of the living , the creaking of the Yama s Hoop as it tightens around the chastised skull, the rustle of the blood red sandalwood flowers, the uninterrupted bubbling of the sesame oil soaking the five feet tall purple sandalwood stake, the shrill of the ripped beard, the snipping of queues, the murdering of the soul, the orgasmic happiness of Meiniang, the warm blood dripping onto death s majestic palanquin, the plonking of the bloody knife after the 500th cut , the dramatic folk operas retelling tales of oppression , the thundering sound of gallantry and human fortitude, the galumphing of destined socio cultural revolution and the resonance of life, as the Gaomi populace knew it My palpitations strumming to the beat of Tan xiang xing .

    Soltanto chi conosce il male pu evitarlo soltanto conoscendo il demone che si nasconde nel cuore umano si pu diventare santi Questo uno dei libri pi belli che io abbia letto, e sicuramente il pi sconvolgente Mai come ora mi mancano le parole per esprimere ci che provo a fine lettura e che ho provato durante lo stupore e l ammirazione per la bravura, il raccapriccio per le pagine pi violente, il rapimento, lo struggimento e la malia di fronte a una lettura cos bella.Il romanzo ambientato negli ultimi anni della Cina imperiale, una Cina remota e rurale in cui si mangia carne di cane, si beve vino di miglio e in cui esistono cose come il ministero delle punizioni le condanne a morte vengono eseguite attraverso supplizi terrificanti che costituiscono pubblici spettacoli, pi esemplare la punizione, pi lungo, penoso e terrificante il supplizio Protagonisti un boia che considera la propria professionalit al pari di un arte, e il condannato, artista di strada ribelle che deve essere punito per aver organizzato una rivolta contro i soprusi delle potenze straniere Non si trattava di sbandierare il potere conferitomi dai doni dell imperatore e dell imperatrice madre, o di utilizzare il mio compito ufficiale per portare a termine una vendetta personale, qui era in questione il prestigio della dinastia Toccava a me eseguire il supplizio e il condannato era un criminale famoso Doveva essere uno spettacolo d eccezione non il mio trionfo personale, ma lo sfoggio della grandezza di questa dinastia Ebbene s , cose del genere sono successe.https it.wikipedia.org wiki LingchiLa scrittura di Mo Yan schietta e brutale, infarcita di detti popolari Una voce che pu passare dalla minuziosa descrizione di violenze inaudite, da far venire i sudori freddi, al racconto d a pi struggente dai toni epici ed eroici, al registro comico e grottesco dagli elementi fantastici a un crudo realismo il tutto con grazia, senza forzature Un altra caratteristica tipica la totale mancanza di ordine cronologico negli eventi narrati, cosa che non impedisce di rimanere attaccati alle pagine per seguire il filo anzi obbliga dolcemente i miei neuroni arrugginiti a fare un po di ginnastica per ricostruire la storia.Il risultato qualcosa dal sapore forte, originale, non adatto a tutti i palati, forse, ma certamente unico nel suo genere, e per i miei gusti davvero straordinario Le pagine che mi hanno scosso di pi sono state quelle in cui viene descritto con una minuzia sfiancante, quasi insopportabile, il supplizio dei cinquecento tagli, in cui il condannato deve morire esattamente alla cinquecentesima asportazione di una piccola parte del suo corpo Ci che rende la descrizione al limite del sopportabile che viene portata avanti seguendo pensieri e sensazioni del carnefice e non della vittima Le lunghe descrizioni dei terribili supplizi che si trovano in questo libro hanno lo scopo di far conoscere al lettore le barbarie e gli orrori che si sono verificati nel corso della storia, per risvegliare in lui un cuore compassionevole , scrive Mo Yan in una nota alla fine del romanzo.Mai come ora ci serve un cuore compassionevole, leggiamo Mo Yan.

    Maoqiang Opera Chinese pinyin M oqi ng is a local folk opera style performed live on stage from the Jiaozhou area of Shandong Peninsula Jiaodong Peninsula in eastern China Sandalwood Death pays homage to Maoqiang and is written in a style reminiscent of this traditional Chinese art form.In the Author s Note at the end of the book, Mo Yan writes In the same way that Maoqiang cannot be performed in grand halls alongside Italian opera or Russian ballet, this novel of mine will likely not be a favorite of readers of Western literature, especially in high brow circles Thank heavens then, that I m not in any way high brow , because this historical novel was such a uniquely enjoyable experience.Reflective of Maoqiang characteristics, the narrative and dialogue frequently incorporate a bawdy, overblown and mischievous element And so, a son who is tormented by his dead mother s spirit beseeches her to let him live or die, with his little pecker pointing to heaven, on his own A rebel being tortured to death is inconsiderately revealed as having shit his pants Mo Yan paints vivid pictures of the main protagonists, allowing us to really live in their heads and experience what they are going through in exquisite detail Even the work of an executioner carrying out the Slicing Death is elevated to high art.I really don t know what else to say any about this fantastic work, so I ll just stop here In parting, Mo Yan says at a time when borrowings from Western literary trends have all but brought an end to our popular traditions, Sandalwood Death may be out of keeping with the times, and might be thought of as a step backward in my writing career I can only say that this reader totally disagrees with him on that.Note This novel contains vivid descriptions of protracted torture and execution scenes Avoid if squeamish It would be a pity, though.

    Si astengano dalla lettura i deboli di stomaco, i buonisti, i sostenitori del volemose bene , gli animalisti convinti, i nazi vegani e gli intolleranti ai soprusi Il supplizio del legno di sandalo un romanzo crudo, violento, doloroso L autore descrive abilmente e con grande realismo, la cina imperiale del 1900, e lo fa raccontando episodi fortemente disturbanti.Per tutti gli altri, una lettura da non perdere Un romanzo di finzione che anche romanzo storico, un romanzo epico dall intensit straziante.Consigliatissimo

    L autore di questo straordinario romanzo, il cinese premio Nobel Mo Yan pseudonimo che vuol dire non parlare , mi ha trasportato in un mondo apparentemente lontanissimo dal nostro dove l a per i potenti diventa asservimento, dove la massa del popolo partecipa con entusiasmo alle esecuzioni, dove la violenza di stato regna sovrana, dove spesso i potenti sono al di sopra della legge.Non siamo poi cos lontani, mi sono detto Il libro descrive, con precisione chirurgica, le fasi di alcune terribili torture, metodi particolari per l esecuzione di condanne a morte, lasciandomi esterrefatto per le barbarie mostrate, volute dal potente di turno Come dice l autore, lo scopo di queste descrizioni ahim non frutto della fantasia, ma realmente praticate in passato quello di risvegliare nel lettore un cuore compassionevole e posso confermare che il mio cuore non so quanto compassionevole per il suo metro di giudizio rimasto sveglio a lungo.Naturalmente c dell altro, c eroismo, coraggio, paura, a, in una ambientazione di una civilt in trasformazione, quale era quella cinese a inizio del Novecento, con la rivolta dei Boxer e le sanguinose repressioni.Mi piaciuta l invenzione narrativa di presentare le varie storie come episodi dell opera dei gatti, una specie di teatro di strada cinese nato per accompagnare i funerali e diventato uno strumento per rappresentare in forma teatrale storie popolari Miao Miao.Un po di fatica iniziale a ricordare i nomi senza confonderli, ma ne vale la pena.

    Excruciating and beautiful, but not for weak stomachs.I ve read Sandalwood Death Tanxiang Xing in both Vietnamese my native language and English It is understood why Mo Yan could not achieve the level of fame he deserves in the West I remember that year when Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize in 2012, most of my Murakami fans I know back then were truly disappointed Murakami writes universally they do not require much of a background understand, but Mo Yan not so much.Anyway I am not making an effort to compare these two authors, just getting things clear In order to truly appreciate the genius of Mo Yan, you have to be somewhat familiar with Chinese history and culture, in this case, the Boxer Rebellion and Chinese Opera with all its extravagant colours and fascinating, impeccable moves This is no easy task for an average Western reader especially uninformed book club members who just expect a pleasant read.The main casts are Sun Meinang, a ineligible beauty due to her unbound feet her husband Zhao Xiaoja, a dim witted butcher Zhao Ja, the master of execution the butcher s father a county magistrate who had an affair with Meinang and Sun Bing the opera virtuoso the beauty s father Together, they will make the ultimate performance of betrayal, despair, brutality and their country s imminent downfall.This is a gore and grotesque feast played out like a Chinese Opera, empowered with magical realism Here and there were a few funny moments, but those funny bits will somehow make you feel sick of yourself The executions were depicted in details and I had to take my time reading those painful paragraphs with pangs of disgusts but my efforts were paid Sandalwood Death is not everyone s cup of tea, but I d truly recommend this for those who would like to read to dwell upon another realm for a while.
