Picking up a collection of poems and seeing the author's name "ㄩㄐ", many people may frown: What era of shit kid took the phonetic symbol name that was popular on Facebook back then as the name of his first collection of poems? But if you know that this guy once used the pseudonym "ㄩㄐ" and won the first prize for prose and first prize for new poetry at the Taipei Literature Award , maybe you will have more respect for this seemingly noisy name. And if you know that the person who has won the prose and new poetry awards is actually the founder of the super Facebook fan special "Meme Literature" , you probably won't be too surprised that his pseudonym is so noisy. He is Huang Yujia, born in 1993, " The Jungle of False Gods " is his first collection of poems, just as he has published various pictures of "Kunwashing Literature" on the "Meme Literature" fanzine [Note 1] ,
this book It also presents his view of poetry full of rebellious character: he does not agree that reading poetry depends on feeling , and he may not agree that "poetry must be lyrical". Therefore, his works are narrated as the main axis. The titles of the four volumes in the book are all under the theme of "XX Narrative". His works are not like the common wedding photo retouching services modern poetry of the time, full of images, but use super concise and straightforward sentences, but Put some small thorns in the sentence that make it difficult to slip through easily. When these "logically strange" sentences sting you and make you pause and speculate, the beauty of poetry is born from this. I borrowed what Roland Barthes said about photography, and selfishly called these "logically strange" sentences "prick points".
According to Roland Barthes, the puncture may exist in some insignificant details in the photo, but it will make the viewer feel and think, which will not be forgotten for a long time. But each viewer's puncture points are different, so I will try to point out the two kinds of "puncture points" that I felt in "The Jungle of False Gods". Repeated sentence patterns that develop different meanings The first is that in a novel-like plot, similar and identical sentence patterns are repeated, and more than two pun meanings emerge. The preface to this collection of poems, "There Is No Love in It," is a prime example: "There is no love in it" Sunshine and dream, sunken double mattress There is no love in it Work and reluctance to fall asleep at night There is no love in it The summer typhoon is about to be covered by cirrocumulus clouds The street tree survived the last typhoon
