On the Different Roads of Exploration——A Comparative Study of Wang Meng and Zong Pu's Novels during the Early Part of the New Period

Jin Haixue;  
Wang Meng and Zong Pu were two of the representative exploration novelists during the earlypart of the New Period. Although both of them wrote the so-called"exploration novels", the content theyexplored was not quite similar. Firstly, they have different understandings about absurdity. Wang Mengtreats absurdity as the historical background to highlight the greatness and brilliance of the protagonists' personality. Whereas, to a certain extent, Zong Pu represents the absurdity as memories of past life experi-ences that are unbearable to look back to in order to make prominent the absurdity and misery of theprotagonists' fate. Secondly, they hope for different things. By describing the various perceptions of theprotagonists in response to the changes of the new age, Wang Meng's novels sensitively convey to thereaders the complicated yet not random rhythms which is due to happen during the new era, while ZongPu's novels focus on the restoration and construction of a humanist discourse by artistic metamorphosis todisplay the various absurd experiences. Above from conveying a hope for the restoration of humanist dis-course, Zong Pu's novels also express his reflection on the construction of subjectivity. Lastly, their nov-els employ different ways of writing. In Wang Meng's novels, there is a lot of stream of consciousness,such as daydreaming and flashback in memory, while in Zong Pu's novels, there is a preference for sym-bolism in detail depiction and plots design.
