Seeds of resistance and indomitability

 Chekhov was born in a poor family and did not redeem his serf status until his grandfather’s generation. His father ran a grocery store and strictly controlled the young Chekhov, making him stand in front of the counter since he was a child. Chekhov recalled, “I didn’t have a childhood”, which sounded extremely sad.
  ”Moby Dick” author Melville died when his father was twelve years old. He and his mother moved to the countryside and lived in a very small house. Melville joined society to earn a living at the age of fourteen or five. He worked as a clerical worker, a clerk, a farm worker, and finally became a sailor on a whaling ship.
  There are many such writers. They all have a hard and unfortunate childhood, and memories of being hurt and humiliated follow throughout their lives. This can constitute what people call the “material” of writing, and they have more stories to tell than others.
  A well-known writer I know has gained a reputation in the industry very early. He was born in a poor country. He was beaten up by his father when he was young. After the writer had made a lot of achievements, he returned to his hometown to harvest wheat in the wheat harvest season. It’s not harvesting, but pulling directly by hand. The kind of hard work is not what people can imagine now: it only takes a while to blisters with both hands.
  When the writer pulled the wheat, he was chased all over the ground by his angry old father because the soil of the wheat root was not clean. Father held a bench and chased from here to there. When he was tired, he sat on the bench and rested for a while.
  I heard the story of this writer being chased by his father in the wheat field, and I couldn’t laugh. I know there are some unspeakable things here, and I can’t tell them. But I know that his writing is limitless. He was able to achieve the so-called success in the secular sense at such an age and was later chased, and in front of the villagers, it has an extraordinary meaning.
  My estimate is pretty good. In the past twenty years, this man has not only failed to disappoint, but has also repeatedly aroused surprises. Because his endurance continues, a long process of being corrupted by vanity has just begun, and there are deeper things hidden in his heart, these things must bulge in his heart, making him continue to feel sad. His rebellious and unyielding roots are too deep, and he will not float under such pressure.
  No matter how great a professional achievement or reputation a good writer has, he will never forget it. The seed of unyielding resistance planted in his childhood has been swelling, trying to germinate, preventing him from being quiet. He wants to reveal the truth, to show his strength, and to repair the damaged part of his dignity with the story of his life.
  Jack London never knew who his father was. He was just eight months old, and his mother took him to marry a poor old widower, who followed his surname. Before graduating from elementary school, he started working as a child laborer, even a thief who stole sea oysters, and a sailor on a pirate ship. His long story “Pirates” specifically describes maritime adventures. His life’s role is really complicated. Workers, homeless people, college students, and gold diggers in the Arctic Circle have also been in prison. This is a person who has been ravaged by life and scarred, so it can tell us many stories of humiliation and struggle.
  Dostoevsky was born in a family of military doctors. His father bought a farm. He was extremely irritable and cruel. He was beaten to death because he abused the farmer. The young Dostoevsky entered the military engineering school and had to get rid of his father’s shadow all his life. The things that blood gave him, the fear left behind, will ferment at a time that people don’t know. This is actually a very special and painful brew. His masterpiece “The Brothers Karamazov” is still exciting to read today.
  ”Brothers Karamazov” wrote the most complicated father-son relationship, as well as endless debates between brothers about original sin and faith, which is thrilling and frightening. This kind of in-depth and honesty and fear is what modernist literature lacks. The memory of his father must have put Dostoevsky in an inextricable torture, mixed with other sufferings, such as the case that almost caused him to die by hanging. This gloomy and sad fate is integrated into his literature.
  Hate and love are two different forces, although they are also related to each other. We will find that when the two become one, they are the most powerful. When hate separates alone, it becomes gloomy; when love separates alone, it becomes empty, cheap and superficial. The combination of love and hate is the strongest and most irresistible, and it is also the best.
