L’écriture de la nature chez l’écrivain Mo Yan ou le regard d’un paysan à travers la littérature: Le radis de cristal comme symbole d’une utopie


Tran, P (2011). L’écriture de la nature chez l’écrivain Mo Yan ou le regard d’un paysan à travers la littérature: Le radis de cristal comme symbole d’une utopie. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 65(1):227-239.

Abstract

Mo Yan 莫言 (born 1956) is one of the most important writers of China’s contemporary literary scene. His work, characterized by its quantative, formal, and conceptual richness, is difficult to define in terms of a particular aesthetic. The aim of this article is to shed additional light on Mo Yan’s works by reassessing his contribution to the (re)construction of Chinese literature at the end of the Maoist period. A closer examination of the author’s treatment of nature in a short story entitled Touming de hongluobo 透明的红萝卜 (A Transparent Radish), published in 1985, will reconsider the “authenticity” of Mo Yan’s writing on its own merit, an authenticity that allowed Chinese literature from the 80s onwards to turn the page on social realism and to engage in new directions.
