When Hong Ying talks

Hong Ying (author of _K: the Art of Love _etc. ) presented a talk in SOAS this afternoon.

She was much as I expected. Looked like a girl in Belle and Sebastian's songs, beautiful and edgy. She spoke with a strong Sichuan accent, as well as a strong sense of self. So much so that you can distinguish her without open the eyes. Under the strength of high self-evaluation, there was always a tone of uncertainty by inserting all the words of making certain. However, she's got her beautiful language to cover it all. And that was the power of Hong Ying.

She was not as much as I've read from her novels and poems. She flies on the paper, she sank in her melancholies, memories, and adventures on the paper, but after all, she reasons, and all developed in rational layers. Whereas when she talks, only the passion left. And I appreciate that. Because a write is to deprive what is written to what is happening, thus possiblities for the readers to develop the understanding of the text can be expanded out of the writer's initial intention.
