    The weight was so great I could not move They meant that I should die I knew that the weight was false so I struggled out covered in perspiration But I had to say You should change at once change from the bottom of your hearts You must know that in future there will be no place for man eaters in the world

    Wanting to eat men at the same time afraid of being eaten themselves they all look at each other with the deepest suspicion How comfortable life would be for them if they could rid themselves of such obsessions and go to work walk eat and sleep at ease They have only this one step to take Yet fathers and sons husbands and wives brothers friends teachers and students sworn enemies and even strangers have all joined in this conspiracy discouraging and preventing each other from taking this stepI've read this kind of diary too many timesMay 19 19 Later on my blog

    This short conversationally written text is beguilingly difficult to fully appreciate without a solid understanding of the text's social cultural and historic context It was only with help of secondary sources eg literary analysis that I could grasp and admire the sophisticated and scathing commentary on the groupthink scapegoating and other group level defenses that LX found to permeate the then Chinese society I read this in the original Chinese

    Read in the original Chinese It is very disturbing to follow logical prose that nonchalantly expresses illogical ideas And the ending 沒有吃過人的孩子,或者還有? is something else

    This story chronicles a man’s descent to madness much like Charlotte Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper Written in a diary format it is at first seemingly a casual account of a day to day life However as the narrator walks the path of insanity what we are given instead is a brilliant metaphor for social criticisms against China at that time 1918 Read it in Chinese if possible The English translation is great but it gives off a subtle feel to it The Chinese original is much like a Chinese Vonnegut 「這時候、我又懂了一件他們的巧妙了。他們豈但不肯改、而且早已佈置;預備下一個瘋子的名目罩上我。將來喫了、不但太平無事、怕還會有人見情。佃戶說的大家喫了一個惡人、正是這方法。這是他們的老譜!」That right there was a stab at scapegoating and traditionalism An old habit indeed
