    PDF/EPUB Ah Cheng ☆ ☆ The King of Trees ePUB ↠ The King PDF or king kindle, trees free, The King pdf, The King of Trees ePUBEach of Ah Cheng's three novellas included in this edition under the title The King of Trees is a first person narrative told by an educated youth who has been sent down to work in the countryside during the Cultural Revolution What sets them apart from so much literature depicting the same period is that the terrible political chaos of the time forms a backdrop rather than the central focus of the narratives Moreover Ah Cheng in each novella engages and utilizes themes and images from the Chinese tradition Both The King of Trees and The King of Chess can be regarded as rereadings of Daoism in a modern setting The large and useless but profoundly symbolic tree in the first story is drawn directly from Zhuangzi But however much this tree is admired unlike its Zhuangzian antecedent it does not escape the ideology of progress and a tragic desire to eradicate the past The second story about a young man who pursues perfection through chess draws upon the Zhuangzi image of the impassive fig

    PDF/EPUB Ah Cheng ☆ ☆ The King of Trees ePUB ↠ The King PDF or king kindle, trees free, The King pdf, The King of Trees ePUBOther reviewers have done a good job of describing the culturalhistorical setting of the three stories and their main themes and characters I’ll just add that the feel of the stories is very distinctive and really unlike anything I can remember reading before They remind me of Chinese ink paintings that present boldly characterized figures against very sparsely sketched backgrounds And for all their ostensible concreteness there is something rarefied about them that makes them seem like parables or allegories than realistic nar

    PDF/EPUB Ah Cheng ☆ ☆ The King of Trees ePUB ↠ The King PDF or king kindle, trees free, The King pdf, The King of Trees ePUBPrior to reading The King of Trees by Ah Cheng my only knowledge of the Cultural Revolution and Mao Zedong's communist rule in general was simply hell Even so all three stories that composed this novella were extremely magnificent with the incorporation of various historical backgrounds This was especially true when it came to the description of China's rural population in the past regarding the living standards of the people or even their Chinese culture Rather than demonstrating a aggressive and negative approach to the Culture Revolution which I had initially anticipated the stories gave off an unexpected sweet and touching sensation as one completed each story

    PDF/EPUB Ah Cheng ☆ ☆ The King of Trees ePUB ↠ The King PDF or king kindle, trees free, The King pdf, The King of Trees ePUBWritten in a very simple narrative the book contains three unrelated stories capturing the cultural revolution in China focusing on the status of intellectuals sent to physical work for the purpose of mass reeducation The 3 kings of chess of trees of children are three stories about growing up in a society where mentoring when done outside the settings of the commonly validated political social framework is a dangerous attitude for both mentor apprenticeA book about the strife to develop individually in a society dominated by class and group conformity norms

    PDF/EPUB Ah Cheng ☆ ☆ The King of Trees ePUB ↠ The King PDF or king kindle, trees free, The King pdf, The King of Trees ePUBAn interesting take on the 'Cultural Revolution' with the emphasis on personal relationships built during that time and all the depravities and excesses cast merely as backdrop The first of the three stories struck me as of a parable and was in some ways the least effective for all that I don't think even the hardiest soul can kick a whetstone in two The idea of recreating that time with a 'ground level' approach is still pretty effective though 35
