© Li Shuang The Light of Hopes 1980

Li Shuang, genuine, generous. Fragrance of the Renaissance.  

Pungency. Fervour. Holy icons. Madonnas. Secret feminities.

Oui, dit Luxun, j'ai volé le feu d'un pays étranger, mais c'était pour en cuire ma

propre chair dans l'idée que, si elle en prenait meilleur goût et que beaucoup

de gens en profitent, je n'aurais pas gaspillé mon corps*

 
M. N.

* « Traduction serrée et Caractère de classe de la littérature », 1930, V. Cf. Essais choisis, t. I.
