June Fourth Elegies characters Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The first publication of the poetry of 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Liu Xiaobo with a Foreword by His Holiness the Dalai LamaLiu Xiaobo has become the foremost symbol of the struggle for human rights in China He was a leading activist during the Tiananmen Suare protests of June 4 1989 and a prime supporter of Charter 08 the manifesto The blurb by Paul Auster on the back of this book begins One cannot talk about these poems strictly in terms of poetry To me this sounds like These poems aren t very good but we sure do like the guyAnd fair enough Still this is a book of poetry and I d be lying if I said I wasn t disappointed I d been really exited to read thisanything by Xiaobo When he won the Nobel Peace Prize and China would not allow him or any of his associates out of the country to claim the prize I changed my facebook icon to a picture of an empty chair facebookisnotasuffientformofactivismforrealchangepleaseattendaprotest along with hundreds maybe thousands of others who supported him I d wanted to if not be inspired at least get a touch of Voltaire from this bookThere were snippets that I enjoyed such asI am a cripplepowerless to escapethis city this age wherethere s only one thing to celebrateI still have an exiled soulHaving an exiled soul is absolutely a thing worth celebrating So do I give this two or three stars Something began to unsettle me as I got further into this book and it wasn t his cliched imagery or overwrought rhetorical bent I think it was that despite personally railing against China for so long and supporting virtually any criticism of the country I find it distasteful when someone appears to be pursuing a cause to the exclusion of all othersI d mentioned this in my review of The Holocaust Industry but the Chinese tend to view every tragedy within China as greater than tragedies that occur elsewhere Maybe that s unfair and I know that most countries are guilty of the same thing to some extent but that was definitely the sense I had while living there I am all for harping on about the June 4th incident but not because of the murders that took place I feel strongly that these occurrences continue to matter because the socialpower structures that led to them are still in effect Life is transient Death isn t tragic because death happens to us all To my mind a thing can only be tragic if it s out of the ordinary And so let s please stop focusing on historical offenses and start focusing on present day offensesI realize that it seems like I m splitting hairs here since in the June 4th case the historical offense is the same as the present day offense My problem is with the application of adolescent imagery to continually and ineffectually depict an affront rather than attack from a present day stand pointHere I ve got to uote from the afterwardFrom the translator historically the US has been broadly aggressive about spreading its own culture and economy to the rest of the world while being indifferent or averse to the cultural inflow of other peoplesand from Xiaobo I freuently heard praise such as It s the first time I ve ever heard a Chinese speak like that or That a Chinese can have such an understanding of Western philosophy or again How could China have produced such a rebel like yourself Every time I heard this kind of approbation I felt like I hadn t left China but rather had been stuffed into somebody else s luggage and thrown onto a plane as a curiosity to be taken to a strange land Where they decide to place you is where you have to beI m going to call total bullshit on these uotes no non Chinese person says A Chinese and I think if either author were being honest with themselves they d fess up These uotes are indicative of an immense inferiority complex much of East Asia has Is the US indifferent to Chinese culture Well given that China has produced nothing of value since the Cultural Revolution and is now resting on its firework and fork inventing laurels probably But you ask what in Mao s name does this have to do with anything Are you just using this review as a platform to spit your Chinese hating vitriol Look I m no America lover either and remember that empty chair facebook picture I mentioned It s just that I hate seeing this kind of divisive language in a world where defiance especially through poetry should be unifyingBut it s complicated than that even It s not just inferiority There s an implied superiority too A whole heck of a lot of people there believe that their culture is so complex that Westerners truly CAN NOT understand it Once again bollocksThe superiority keeps us from unifying and the inferiority keeps us whiny Don t whine Get pissed Stop claiming as a teenager would that no one understands you and accept that your culture is as not fucked than the rest America I m looking at you now and take to the streets
