One man's Bible : a novel by Xingjian Gao( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<One Man's Bible</ is a fictionalized account of Gao Xingjian's life under the Chinese Communist regime. Daily life is riddled with paranoia and fear, and government propaganda turns citizens against one another. It is a place where a single sentence spoken ten years earlier can make one an enemy of the state.</ But <One Man's Bible</ is also a profound meditation on the essence of writing, on exile, on the effects of political oppression on the human spirit, and on how the human spirit can triumph.>

Buying a fishing rod for my grandfather : stories by Xingjian Gao( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written between 1983 and 1990, these translated stories take as their themes the fragility of love and life, and the haunting power of memory. In "The Temple" the narrator's acute and mysterious anxiety overshadows the "delirious happiness" of an outing with his new wife on their honeymoon. In "The Cramp" a man narrowly escapes drowning in the sea, only to find that no one even noticed his absence. In "The Accident" a bus hits a cyclist and, as in stop-action film, the chaotic aftermath gives way to a calm, ordinary street comer with no trace of the previous drama. In the title story the narrator attempts to "unburden myself of homesickness" only to find himself lost in a labyrinth of childhood memories. Everywhere in this collection are powerful psychological portraits of characters whose unarticulated hopes and fears betray the never-ending presence of the past in their present lives."--Jacket
Per un'altra estetica by Xingjian Gao( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scrittore di narrativa e di teatro, saggista raffinato, Gao Xingjian ha sempre coltivato anche la pittura ed è considerato un innovatore sia nel campo dell'arte figurativa sia in quello letterario. In occasione di una mostra dei suoi quadri che toccherà importanti città europee e americane, Rizzoli presenta una sintesi della sua opera pittorica (un centinaio di lavoratori a inchiostro di china su carta di riso, eseguiti a partire dagli anni Sessanta) arricchita da un saggio autobiografico e critico in cui l'autore parla della pittura e del suo rapporto con i colori, con la tradizione cinese e con l'avanguardia europea. Con grande naturalezza Gao sperimenta dipinti dei più vari formati inseguendo una visione che si colloca tra il figurativo e l'astratto; e si conferma come uno dei rarissimi artisti che possono rivendicare a pieno diritto i titoli di romanziere, saggista, drammaturgo, regista teatrale e pittore."--Jacket

The other shore : plays by Xingjian Gao( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Gao Xingjian won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000, he became the only Chinese writer to achieve such international acclaim. The Chinese University Press is the first publisher of his work in the English language. Indeed, The Other Shore is one of the few works by the author available in English today. The Other Shore: Plays by Gao Xingjian contains five of Gao's most recent works: The Other Shore (1986), Between Life and Death (1991), Dialogue and Rebuttal (1992), Nocturnal Wanderer (1993), and Weekend Quartet (1995). With original imagery and in beautiful language, these plays illuminate the realities of life, death, sex, loneliness, and exile. The plays also show the dramatist's idea of the tripartite actor, a process by which the actor neutralizes himself and achieves a disinterested observation of his self in performance. An introduction by the translator describes the dramatist and his view on drama

City of the dead & song of the night by Xingjian Gao( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

City of the Dead and Song of the Night are two plays by Gao Xingjian, the Nobel laureate, which create new modes of theatrical presentation by experimenting with prose and poetry. In City of the Dead, Gao employs traditional Chinese opera techniques that combine singing with dialogue, movement, and martial arts into a modern play. Song of the Night, conceived as a poem-play with dance, uses one female actor and two female dancers to represent the subjective self of the contemporary woman, divided into the "I" and the "she." These two plays advance Gao's theatrical experiments in dramatic prose across linguistic and cultural boundaries
