Balzac and the LCS Characterisation
Talented Story teller
Arrival in village. Violin scene :violin:
*"Mozart is Thinking of Chairman Mao"
Demonstrates quick witted ness by tricking the headman into believing it is a patriotic song. Irony and humour are used as the Headman who is in charge doesn't know a simple fact that Mozart predates Mao by 200 years!
He flicked me surreptitious wink
the sheer audacity of our trick did a lot to temper our resentment(p15)
BACKGROUND OF LUO's FATHER's DENOUNCEMENT
first meeting of the seamstress
“She’s not civilised, at least not enough for me"
This quote foreshadows Luos and the LCS relationship. After they become romantic, Luo focuses on teaching her things he believes will 'civilize' her. His mission includes reading her Balzac and helping her look and speak more like a city girl.
Luo was a born impersonator p23

The Little Seamstress's Story
JESSIE PART 1& 2
Power Of LIterature
She said having Balzac's words next to her skin made her feel good, and also more intelligent
The fellow Balzac is a wizard. He touched the head of this mountain girl with an invisible finger, and she was transformed, carried away in a dream
It took a while for her to come down to earth
"About those books of his - what if we stole them?"
With these books I shall transform the little Chinese Seamstress. She'll never be a simple mountain girl again.
She had a glowing complexion and her features were fine, almost noble
Without doubt the loveliest pair of eyes in the district of Yong Jong
"Things you can't explain naturally" In my opinion you can't believe in them totally, but you can't deny them totally either.
"The long pigtail tied with red ribbion had made way for short bob, which was very becoming and modern looking"
"She was putting final touches with the Mao jacket"
"her latest obsession" luo said "is to be like a city girl"
"Fed to the flames of Luo's madness" |
Caroline Part 1
We would share our spoils, as if we were a gang of three.
Me too. [I feel] loathing for everyone who kept these books from us.
Part 2 CAROLINE
Suddenly, I felt the stirrings of an uncontrollably sadistic impulse, like a volcano about to erupt. I thought about all the miseries of re-education, and slowed down the pace of the treadle. ... I had turned into a sadist––an out-and-out sadist.
