周晓枫:写作是最安全的冒险

2018-11-09 | 信息来源:CCTSS | 原作者:罗雨静

  近年来,中华文化“走出去”的影响力不断扩大,在全球文化多元化发展日益兴盛的背景下,中国文化译研网(CCTSS)联合中国作家协会《小说选刊》杂志社,启动“新世纪中国当代作家、作品海外传播数据库”项目,将100位中国当代优秀作家的简介、代表作品以及展示作家风采的短视频翻译为10种语言,集结成1000张中国作家名片向全球推介。千张“作家名片”将鲜明地向世界宣告:我是中国作家,我在进行中国创作。


  此种形式和规模是中国故事走向世界的一大创新,会让世界更加全面、客观、公正地了解中国优秀作家作品,同时也是打通中国文化走向世界的“最后一公里”。


  周晓枫,女,1969年6月生于北京,1992年毕业于山东大学中文系。先后在中国少年儿童出版社、《十月》杂志社和《人民文学》杂志社任职,2013年调入北京作家协会,为驻会专业作家。曾获鲁迅文学奖、朱自清文学奖、冯牧文学奖、冰心散文奖、庄重文文学奖、《人民文学》奖、《十月》文学奖、在场主义散文奖、花地文学奖、华语文学传媒年度散文家等奖项。


  作为新散文运动的创作主将,周晓枫以其独特的极富标签性的语言和写作风格,求新、求变、求异,开拓了散文写作的边界。她说:“我希望把戏剧元素、小说情节、诗歌语言和哲学思考都带入散文之中,尝试自觉性的跨界。”她的作品也极大地表现了文字的魅力和独特性——它包罗万象的体验,以及它带来的想象力和冲击,甚至超越了图片和影像。周晓枫用精准文字劈开文本表象,讲述人生体验,探讨人性内核,生发出现代人显见却又陌生的哲学思考,独抒性灵、独具一格。


  《你的身体是个仙境》对女性经验的书写既大胆无忌又节制隐忍,呈现出比较完整的身体和伦理的世界,显示了一个优秀散文家的忠直和敏锐。《巨鲸歌唱》是鲁迅文学奖获奖作品,获奖词写道:“这部作品整体是从低处、在地面或水中,沉潜、体验。个人成长的印记与经验,对世界的观察和领悟,细腻得纤毫毕现、色泽斑斓。周晓枫的思想自觉、勤勉,难能可贵地保持着自我的警觉审慎和表达的节制精悍,在周严的文体秩序中底气充沛地向着生命深处执著掘进。她敏捷的思维和自由穿行的艺术脚力,拓展了散文写作的可能性。”


  《有如候鸟》是周晓枫2017年的散文新作,内容涉及家暴、记忆、善恶、食物链、迁徙等复杂主题,她用绵密精致而不失精准的散文表达,探讨人如何在人群之中生活,探讨每一个人隐藏在内心深处的精神秘密。《有如候鸟》出版后即得到专业领域和读者的双重肯定,获“新浪好书榜十大好书”“大众喜爱的50种图书”“年度影响力图书”“花地文学奖年度散文”等奖项。其中《离歌》一文,以其锋利的文字刀刃,及对中国知识分子和我们时代真相冷静却又不无感伤的层层解剖,荣获《收获》年度非虚构排行榜第一,中国当代文学作品排行榜散文随笔类第一。近两年,除了散文写作,周晓枫也开始尝试创作童话,两部作品《小翅膀》和《星鱼》,将在2018年内出版。

  Zhou Xiaofeng


  Zhou Xiaofeng was born in Beijing in June 1969 and graduated in 1992 from the Department of Chinese at Shandong University. She has successively served at China Children and Teenagers Publishing House, October Magazine and People’s Literature Magazine. She was transferred to the Beijing Writers Association in 2013 as a professional writer. She has won the Lu Xun Literature Award, Zhu Ziqing Literature Award, Feng Mu Literature Award, Bing Xin Prose Award, Zhuang Zhongwen Literature Award, People’s Literature Award, October Literature Award, Presentism Essay Award, Flower Land Literature Award, Chinese Literature Media Annual Essayist Award and more.


  As the creative genius of the new prose movement, Zhou Xiaofeng, with her unique and highly-labeled language and writing style, seeks innovation, changes, and differences, and has opened up the boundaries of prose writing. She says: “I hope to bring dramatic elements, novel plots, poetic language and philosophical thinking into prose and try to conscientiously cross boundaries.” Her works also greatly express the charm and uniqueness of the text, with its all-encompassing experience, as well as the imagination and impact it brings, even going beyond pictures and images. Zhou Xiaofeng uses precise text to open up the appearance of her writing, talks about life experiences, discusses the core of human nature, and gives birth to philosophical reflections with philosophical thinking that are obvious and yet unfamiliar to modern people, with her own unique style and spirit.


  The writing in Your Body is a Fairyland is a bold yet restricted expression of women’s experiences. It presents a relatively complete body and ethical world, and shows the loyalty and sharpness of an excellent essayist. Whale Singing is a Lu Xun Literature Award-winning work. The award-winning words read: “The whole work is from the lower ground, on the ground or in the water, sinking and feeling. The mark and experience of personal growth, observation and comprehension of the world, with delicate and concise expression of the colors, Zhou Xiaofeng’s thoughts are self-conscious and diligent, and she is highly commendable in maintaining her own alertness, prudence, and restraint in expression, and in Zhou Yan’s stylistic order, she is confidently digging deep into the depths of life. Her witty artistic skills of thinking and freedom have expanded the possibilities of prose writing.”


  Like a Migratory Bird, Zhou Xiaofeng’s new 2017 prose work, focuses on complex topics such as domestic violence, memory, good and evil, the food chain, and migration. She uses her meticulous yet precise prose to explore how people live in the crowd and each person’s deeply held hidden spiritual secrets. Like a Migratory Bird has been recognized by professional fields and readers since its publication. It has won the “Sina Top 10 Books”, “The People’s 50 Favorite Books”,“Influential Book of the Year”,“Hillland Literature Award Annual Prose” and other awards. Among them, the article Leaving Songs won the No.1 spot on the annual non-fiction list of Harvest with its sharp text and its layered dissection that is calm and yet somewhat sentimental to Chinese intellectuals and the truth of our time. In the past two years, besides prose writing, Zhou Xiaofeng has also begun to try to create fairy tales. Her two works Little Wings and Starfish will be published in 2018.
