The Submarine at Night 《夜晚的潜水艇》

After reading a lot of novels written by the three outstanding 90's novelists in Northeast China whose style of writing like Jeet Kune Do, I turned to read Chen Chuncheng's The Submarine at Night , and it opens the door to a new world for me. Chen Chuncheng has a miraculous ability to engrave words, he can speak out the extremely subtle, tactful and hidden thoughts in his heart with the deafening silence atmosphere. Those "incomparably messy moods" are the youth that every teenager has had, resonating naturally and unconsciously to the sky with the reader.

My favorite one is "Bamboo Mountain Temple". Everyone who has visited a temple will get purist mind and even think of becoming a monk to keep the state. To me, Bamboo Mountain Temple is like the thought that there can be a pure place to hide a small piece of the clearest heart. It's the piece of Zen in my heart, no matter how complicated the world is, I can still find the truest myself.

In this book, "The Submarine at Night" talks about the annihilation of imagination; "Cloud Tailor" talks about the helplessness of life choices; Missa for "The Dream of Red Chamber" reveals the destinies that the decaying feudal society will inevitably perish; "Li Yin's Lake" talks about the subtle flashback and unavoidable disappearance of long-term memories; and "Musician" pines the infinite, extreme and romantic yearning for the idea of ​​"escaping the cage of reality".

"The bubble of fantasy bursts as soon as it is poked", the negative comments on Douban said, but I think this is exactly the most fascinating part of Chen Chuncheng: He built the fantastic fantasy with countless efforts, and he is willing to burst them to show us the cruelest truth of the world.

看多了东北三杰像截拳道一样的爽利文章之后,转过头来看陈春成,仿若新开了一片天地。陈春成有一种神奇的细雕文字的能力,能在无声处见春雷,把内心那些极其幽微、婉转、隐蔽的念头娓娓道来。那些相同的“无比芜杂的心绪”是每个少年都有过的青春,共振回响,自然就不自觉地共鸣到直冲天灵盖了。

最喜欢《竹峰寺》一篇,哪个人在寺庙游拜的时候,没有动过那一丝清净的念头,想着万念归一出家算求?竹峰寺于我就像那一丝念头,能有一个清净的地方藏一小块最清澈的本心。有一块清境托举着,世界再繁杂也还能找到“我”自己。

《夜晚的潜水艇》讲想象力的磨灭、《裁云记》说人生选择的无奈、《<红楼梦>弥撒》给红楼梦“揭示了腐朽的封建社会必然被灭亡的命运”这个中心思想本身做当代弥撒,《李茵的湖》讲久远记忆的闪回与消逝,《音乐家》寄托着对“逃脱现实囚笼”这一思绪的无限的、极致的、浪漫主义化的向往。

最后,“幻想的泡泡一戳就破”,豆瓣上的差评这么说,描述得很有意思,但这正是陈春成最迷人的地方啊:美妙到极致的幻想,他竟然舍得把它们戳破给我们看。
