洗澡

  《洗澡》不是由一个主角贯连全部的小说,而是借一个政治运动作背景,写那个时期形形色色的知识分子。所以是个横断面;既没有史诗性的结构,也没有主角。本书第一部写新中国不拘一格收罗的人才,人物一一出场。第二部写这些人确实需要“洗澡”。第三部写运动中这群人各自不同的表现。“洗澡”没有得到预期的效果,原因是谁都没有自觉自愿。假如说,人是有灵性、有良知的动物,那么,人生一世,无非是认识自己,洗炼自己,自觉自愿地改造自己,除非甘心与禽兽无异。但是这又谈何容易呢?这部小说里,只有一两人自觉自愿地试图超拔自己。读者出于喜爱,往往把他们看作主角。...

    This book tells, in some respects, of the beginnings of the Chinese revolution in a lesser known circle: academia. And yet there is far more to it than one may see at first glance. In some way this is also a story of humanity, of people and their various shortcomings, of intrigues and the usual social clutter and of transformation. It is written in a light, often amusing, and yet profound manner. To me this is not just a great novel in Chinese literature, but a novel that can confidently pride itself of counting amongst the corpus of world literature.

    The author of this book is actually Yang Jiang. Judith Amory is a co-translator. It is a very interesting book. Not entertaining or elegant, exactly. But informative. It fictionally treats the early Communist Three-Anti's campaign almost like a news item. The characters are not exactly 3-dimensional. But the plots they enter -- and that conscript them -- are. The third part especially reads like a minute-by-minute account of how intellectual purity trials under Mao worked. Rich in neither language nor drama, the book is worth reading for its almost clinical examination of how intellectuals and masses have and will face off against each other.

    I've read this in Chinese, also there is a movie of this book. It's really great movie. So I just wanna read the English version to see what it would be like. :)

    I hate the pettiness of the intellectuals in this book and the complicated office politics in the seemingly most naive literature research organization. Don't know if I will even be able to finish this well known and well reviewed book. (Read 4/5)

    从成都去伦敦的航班上读完了整本书。喜欢这样朴素 简单的文笔,把民国后期以及建国初期一部分知识分子的生活平实无华地勾勒出个大概,让从未经历过那段历史的人透过作者的视角略窥一二。

    控制思想似乎是个很重要的事儿,古代焚书坑儒,现代批斗洗澡。逼着人当众承认自己的思想错误,还要表决心改正,那年叫洗澡,今年叫批评与自我批评。书里有个知识分子说“十年树木,百年树人,人才是国家的根本;利用天真的学生闹事,不好好读书,就是动摇国家的根本,也是葬送青年人”。应该做成标语,糊某岛学联一脸。觉得写姚宓许彦成恋爱的笔墨略多,不过很喜欢这种比较简单朴素的文笔。篇幅短没看够,期待《洗澡之后》。

    杨绛先生在《洗澡》里对故事节奏把握有条不紊,人物性格刻画细腻周到。只是这个“澡”,洗得并不十分周全。如果还想要更多了解文革始终对中国五六十年代知识分子的思想影响,不妨再读一读王蒙先生的长篇“四季”系列,也是叫人忍俊不禁,大笑之余不免伤感,引人深思。

    特定的历史,特殊的现象。生动的描摹,深入的刻画。开卷令人啼笑,掩卷耐人寻味。

    In the China in the 50's, members of a university English Department react in different ways to the new version of China that sprung up with Mao after WWII. Baptism here is a translation of the Chinese title "Xizao", which means "bath" and was used (according to the Introduction) "to designate ...the 'Three Anti Campaign' of 1951 ... directed against corruption, waste and obstructionial bureaucratism", which targeted "bureaucrats nad managers, as well as all former members of 'bourgeois classes,' businessmen, professionals, and, as in this novel, intellectuals."I found the reading a little difficult, because it is apparently a close translation of the Chinese, which (as a Chinese friend who was writing her book about that time once told me) has a very different was of expressing things, so it is unusual and sometimes frustrating to read. I hadn't read a Chinese novel in a while, so I'd forgotten how it is. But I expect it gives an excellent picture of how life was for people like me if I'd lived in China then!
