The first time I knew Mr. Liushahe's name was when I was in junior high school in my hometown more than 20 years ago.
I had an early school day that day, and I made an appointment with my classmates to play in his house. I accidentally saw an old book with a yellow cover on the shabby cabinet of his house. With curiosity, I called this book "The Star "The book is drawn out. As soon as I opened the book, the author's name in the catalog attracted me. It was very special but easy to remember—Liushahe! Since then, the name of Liushahe has been deeply in my mind.
I saw the name Quicksand again in 1980, when I had just joined the army shortly after. On one occasion, in the company's reading column, I saw a news report about the literary youth class's graduation. Among them, the list of writers who taught and taught the literary youth showed Liushahe, a strange and familiar name. Liushahe, Liushahe, what a poetic name! After so many years, I was imprinted in my mind again, and it really made me feel moved. Since then, I have gradually fallen in love with literature, especially with poetry when I was away from work. I only got a general understanding of Mr. Liu Shahe.
His real name is Yu Xuntan, and Liushahe is the pseudonym of his poem composition. In his youth, he was crowned the world; when he was 26, he suffered political hardship for more than 20 years because of the group poem "Grass and Wood". During this period, he Make a living, have worked as a carpenter, sold hard labor ... Later, I have read and read many of his wise and profound philosophical works, such as "Poems Across the Sea", "Records of Laughing in the South Window", "Poems by Liushahe", etc. . Seeing the wisdom and thinking, the high mountains lifted me up, which made me full of infinite respect for him, the poet Liusha He, who has a steel-like will.
In the mid-summer of Gengshen, I finally had a chance to approach the poet. I flew from Wuhan to Chengdu, a metropolis in the southwest where the old poet lived. In this city with a strong cultural atmosphere, I have a kind of excitement and excitement in my heart.
After I stayed at the hotel, I contacted one of my brothers in the country, Mr. Gong Mingde, an expert in the history of modern Chinese literature and a famous scholar. On the phone, I told him about my visit to Rongsha this time, and wanted to pay a visit to Mr. Liu Shahe, and Mr. Mingde readily agreed to me.
The next day, I followed Mr. Mingde to a seemingly outdated dormitory building next to the Sichuan Provincial Writers Association, which is located at the eighth section of Hongxing Middle Road. I went up to the right-hand room on the fifth floor, and Mr. Mingde stepped forward The doorbell. After a while, a thin, white-faced old man opened the door and enthusiastically greeted us to sit in the room. Mingde whispered to me that the old man in front of me was the poet Liushahe whom I admired for a long time.
After my husband was seated, I presented a collection of poems, "Singing for the Past". The gentleman took it with both hands and said to me with his strong Sichuan dialect: "Young man, it is good to read and write at ease in this earthly society, quietly. Literature is a hard work. Career, love literature, must be able to withstand loneliness and withstand temptation. "Then, Mr. Talk about his inheritance and innovation of literature, literature and life. He said: "No matter what kind of literary genre you are engaged in, you must be good at learning the good things of our nation. At the same time, the ancient is the present and the foreign is the middle. We learn from all the good things of foreign literature and we must not forget our nation. The roots of those cultures. "
Jingle, the doorbell of Mr.'s house rang. Another group of guests from afar visited Mr. I raised my wrist to look at the watch, and had taken up a lot of time for the gentleman, and then stood up and left Mingde with a sense of inexhaustible and unbearable mood.
Farewell, the gentleman repeatedly warned: "Whether it is literature or life, whether it is a person or a thing, don't forget our own roots at all times. Only by taking root downwards can we achieve results upward."
Yeah, how can we forget our roots? Mr. Liu Shahe! (Mo Zhijun, working for the Ministry of Finance of Hubei Province. He has published a collection of poetry works.)
