脑瘫诗人余秀华 被奉为中国版Emily Dickinson
Brain-paralyzed woman hailed as China's Emily Dickinson

【人物简介】写了16年诗的湖北诗人余秀华几乎在一夜之间成了名人,她的作品行文质朴、感情浓烈,在微信圈中被反复传递,迅速被人熟知与谈论。过人的文字天赋、加身体残疾,更使余秀华和她的诗歌成了热门话题。

余秀华出生于1976年,湖北钟祥市石牌镇横店村村民。因出生时倒产、缺氧而造成脑瘫,使其行动不便,高中毕业后赋闲在家。余秀华从2009年开始写诗,主题多关于她的爱情、亲情、生活感悟,以及她的残疾和无法摆脱的封闭村子。1995年,19岁的余秀华“在非自由恋爱下结婚”,这段婚姻除了给她带来了一个现在已经18岁在武汉念大学的儿子外,更多的是不幸和苦闷,尽管直到现在两人并未离婚,但多年来两人已少有联系。她被誉为中国版的"Emily Dickinson"

Emily Dickinson 简介:

艾米莉·狄金森(又称狄更生)(Emily Dickinson,1830~1886)美国传奇诗人。出生于律师家庭。青少年时代生活单调而平静受正规宗教教育。从二十五岁开始弃绝社交女尼似的闭门不出,在孤独中埋头写诗三十年,留下诗稿一千七百余首;生前只是发表过七首,其余的都是她死后才出版,并被世人所知名气极大。狄金森的诗主要写生活情趣,自然、生命、信仰、友谊、爱情。诗风凝练婉约、意向清新,描绘真切、精微,思想深沉、凝聚力强,极富独创性。她被视为二十世纪现代主义诗歌的先驱之一。美国诗人最著名的佼佼者是美国文学之父欧文,以及惠特曼和狄金森。她深锁在盒子里的大量创作诗篇是她留给世人的最大礼物。在她有生之年,她的作品未能获得青睐,然而周遭众人对她的不解与误会,却丝毫无法低损她丰富的创作天分。根据统计,艾米莉惊人的创作力为世人留下1800多首诗,包括了定本的1775首与新近发现的25首。

Yu Xiuhua, a Chinese woman suffering from brain paralysis, is being hailed as China's Emily Dickinson, after one of her poems went viral on the Internet. The farmer poet, who is unable to walk and talk normally, has penned poems touching millions.

Yu Xiuhua, a disabled farmer from Hengdian, Hubei province, would never thought of becoming all the rage across the nation, simply because she writes poems as a hobby. She suffered brain paralysis from a lack of oxygen during birth, and is unable to walk and talk properly like an ordinary person. Facing difficulty in high school, she dropped out. Because of physical limitations on her body, she can't do much farm work except for simple housework or raising animals. An unhappy marriage only brought her a son. While misfortunes dodge her life, she gains mere comfort from poems which she began writing in 2009.  

"When I finish writing a poem, I would feel a little bit of satisfaction. I never thought poems would bring me anything. I didn't think of it in the past, and will not think of it in the future. I feel myself and poems depend on each other. To me, poem is a companion, and a loyal friend." Said Yu.

Despite brain paralysis, her ability to think clearly has not been impaired. Her outstanding talent with words simply shines through the lines that she writes.

As soon as her latest poem, roughly translated as "Across Half of China to Sleep with You", was posted online, it became an instant hit. "I braved a rain of bullets to sleep with you. I pressed endless nights into a dawn to sleep with you, I am running into one to sleep with you". Such was the power of her words that popular feminist scholar Shen Rui hailed her as China's Emily Dickinson.

Themes of her creation center on love, life, her village hometown, as well as her parents. Since 2009, she has written nearly 2000 poems. Fortunately for her she's gradually got to know some friends who're like-minded on the internet. She has got tens of thousands of clicks on her weibo microblog account. Her poems are hits and published in magazines. She's been interviewed by the press. The disabled poet has stumbled into the public eye. But fame seems to be out of her concern.

The poet said, "All these things have nothing to do with poems. If you look me as a poet, my aim is to write good poems. All other things do not so much have to do with me. If I live, I will write, life might stop and turn harder, but I will never stop with poems." 

Yu Xiuhua regards writing as a private travel escape within herself and a wonderful thing. With her rise in popularity, Yu will not only get to indulge more in the feeling of writing, but the greater feeling of sharing her writing with fans at large. (英文文本 via CNTV)
