Using Symbols as a Method: An Analysis of the Characters in Wang Wenxing's Short Stories
Wang Wenxing's most highly regarded novel is "JiaBian (家變)", published in 1978. His short stories written before "Jia Bian" are comparatively less noticed. All through the fifty years as a novelist, Wang Wenxmg has been persistent in his artistic concerns. The themes appeared in "Jia Bian (家變)". i.e., human existence and their existential condition had actually all been discussed in a wide range in his short stories written at youth. As a narrator of "thoughts", his themes have been set early in his writing life, even though the length, the structure and the development of his stories might have changed; and the characteristics of his writing style, such as verbal precision and uniqueness, the exquisitely balanced writing style, the pursuit of poetic language effect, and the usage of symbols already appeared in his short stories. To quote Milan Kundera's words:"… perhaps all novelists ever do is writing just one kind of theme (the first novel) and its variations"; Wang Wenxing's short stories, being the source of his multifaceted artistic achievements, definitely require to be studied in depth. This essay, based on the theories of psychoanalysis, tries to explore the characteristics of Wang Wenxing's short stories by examining the different aspects of the characters in the stories.
