Soul mountain

In 1983, Chinese playwright, critic, fiction writer, and painter Gao Xingjian was diagnosed with lung cancer and faced imminent death. But six weeks later, a second examination revealed there was no cancer'he had won "a second reprieve from death." Faced with a repressive cultural environment and the threat of a spell in a prison farm, Gao fled Beijing and began a journey of 15,000 kilometers into the remote mountains and ancient forests of Sichuan in southwest China. The result of this epic voyage of discovery is Soul Mountain. Bold, lyrical, and prodigious, Soul Moutain probes the human soul with an uncommon directness and candor and delights in the freedom of the imagination to expand the notion of the individual self.

  • "Roman écrit entre 1982 et 1989 par un auteur chinois, réfugié politique en France depuis 1988. Une superbe façon de "régler ses comptes avec la nostalgie du pays natal "avec sa soi-disant patrie" (G.X.). Comme l'écrit l'un des traducteurs, l'expérience du théâtre est capital dans l'écriture de Gao Xingjian. L'oeuvre tient du voyage intérieur, du conte classique picaresque et merveilleux, d'une quête de la beauté et de la confession autobiographique (cf. la préface, p. 5-8) et surtout de la "chronique poétique" (J.L. Douin). [SDM]."
