About Writing These films deal with both the good and the bad that comes with writing. This film will take you back to the McCarthy Era when writers were blacklisted for their real or imagined connections with the communist party.
Although there are many good Vietnamese books that have not been translated to English, I want to recommend several translated books: A Novel The best selling book in the history of modern Vietnam, Ticket to Childhood has been nothing short of a sensation in its home country: The story of a man looking back on his life, Ticket to Childhood captures the texture of childhood in all of its richness.
A fable that will charm adults and move children, Ticket to Childhood is sure to capture the hearts of American readers. The Industry of Marrying Europeans This work by Vu Trong Phung, written in the s, reports and expands on the author's meetings with North Vietnamese women who had made an "industry" of marrying European men.
The Industry of Marrying Europeans is notable for its sharp observations, pointed humor, and unconventional mix of nonfictional and fictional narration, as well as its attention to voice: Vu Trong Phung records the French-Vietnamese pidgin dialect spoken by these couples. This prolific writer died at age twenty-seven, leaving behind one of the most impressive bodies of work in modern Vietnamese literature.
Reflections from Captivity This book is an interesting two-parter. The first is by the Vietnamese patriot Phan Boi Chau, writing from prison in for his efforts to overturn French rule and return the Vietnamese monarchy to the throne.
Next, we read some pretty good poetry that Ho Chi Minh wrote while in jail in the early 40s for his revolutionary activities.
This is a good way to become familiar with the history of the struggle for Vietnamese independence.
An Anthology of Vietnamese Poems: From the Eleventh through the Twentieth Centuries This superb anthology brings together a thousand years of Vietnamese poems for the English-speaking world. Huynh Sanh Thong, widely regarded as the preeminent translator of the poetry of Vietnam, here presents more than three hundred poems by poets, some celebrated, some obscure.
Many of the poems are not otherwise available in English. The author's historical and critical introduction to Vietnamese poetry, and his abundant explanatory notes throughout the collection, assist readers in understanding and appreciating each work.
Huynh observes that Vietnamese people in all walks of life compose, read, and listen to poetry; this collection of poems thus reveals much about Vietnamese language, literature, history, and culture.
He has organized the poems-which range from ancient to very recent works-around nine main themes that include Vietnamese views of society, responses to foreign influences, and feelings about such universal questions as relationships between men and women, the role of art in life, and conflicts among social classes.
What tragedies take place within each circling space of years! The tale of Kieu, a talented young girl, was written in verse in Vietnamese by Nguyen Du, who lived in Vietnam from to Although the story is set in China, it was the greatest work of literature until then to be written in the Vietnamese language, and many would say it is still unrivalled.
All the characters are delicately drawn, and bring a Far Eastern culture, with its modes and manners, vividly to life. So many stories from far-away lands lose much of their fascination and genuine warmth and believability in translation.
It is not so in this instance. Michael Counsell, with a true understanding for, and sympathy with the Vietnamese traditions, has brought before the English reader a literary experience of extraordinary beauty. The Vietnamese Peasants under the French The book is divided into two nicely complementary parts.
In the first, Mr. Long presents a brief but detailed history of the effects that the French policy of land expropriation and free land concession had upon the peasant; the resulting problems of tenant farming and sharecropping; and the roles of taxes, tax collection, usury, government agrarian credit programs, and industry and commerce in determining the peasants' living standards.
This history provides an objective background for the second part of the book, which introduces moving personal Vietnamese accounts in translation of life in the twenties and thirties.20 Greatest Movies About Writers Mike Le | Feb 1 , AM I first came to Los Angeles many years ago with the hopes of doing a lot of writing, but instead I .
