Life of the characters
The name of yunzhongyue's pen takes the vague meaning of yunzhongyue, which represents his free and easy outlook on life. Born in 1930, his father is a businessman. He has five brothers and sisters, one brother, one sister, one brother and one sister. He joined the army at the age of 17. He came to Taiwan with the army in 1949 and retired from a secret army unit as a major in 1964. In 1963, Yun Zhongyue, still in the army, wrote his first martial arts work《
Sword and sea
》It was published by liming publishing house. It was well received at that time. After retiring, it has been writing martial arts novels. When it comes to the motivation of creating martial arts novels, Yun Zhongyue said frankly: as a soldier, he has been traveling with the army for a long time, and he has read martial arts novels when he has nothing to do. Therefore, some soldiers in service will join in the ranks of writing martial arts novels. Seeing that many martial arts writers are also soldiers, he has the idea of joining in martial arts creation under the mentality that you can and I can. In particular, he wrote the first martial arts novel "Jian Hai Qing Tao", which is quite popular. In addition, his income from writing martial arts novels at that time was richer than that of other industries, so he has been engaged in the creation of martial arts novels until now.
Achievements and honors
Origin of martial arts
In those years, most of Taiwan's martial arts novels did not pay attention to the time and space background of the plot, which often attracted scholars' ridicule. In addition, Yun Zhongyue himself had a strong interest in history. Therefore, every martial arts novel of Yun Zhongyue would pay special attention to explain its historical background, and even put great efforts into the historical textual research related to the plot of the novel. Especially for the historical facts of the Ming Dynasty, yunzhongyue's education is no less than that of the general scholars of Ming history, which is also the first feature of yunzhongyue's martial arts novels. As for the phenomenon of time and space ambiguity in many martial arts works in Taiwan, Yun Zhongyue thinks that this is more or less related to the fear of violating the political taboos at that time. "The martial arts novels in Taiwan pay little attention to the historical background, I think it may be because they are afraid of violating the political taboos (because historical praise and criticism are easy to be thought about, or even directly related to the political taboos). However, I did not worry about this, because I think history is unchangeable and should not be interfered by politics. And I'm lucky that I didn't suffer from political interference in the process of writing. The worry about political taboos is indeed one of the reasons why many martial arts writers do not want to touch historical issues. However, in addition, many martial arts writers do not want to spend time and energy on trivial historical research, which is probably the more important reason. "
Although the martial arts talk illusory, known as the
Adult Fairy Tales
But Yun Zhongyue tries to seek truth in the illusory plot characters. In addition to paying attention to historical textual research, for the description of martial arts in the novel, each move has his own real Kung Fu as the basis of imagination: because I have practiced martial arts since I was a child, what I have learned and taught in the army are also skills of killing people, so in my martial arts novels, the name of the move is only an adjective, which is made up. However, the description of the connotation of the moves is completely based on Chinese martial arts. Since the Republic of China, there have been a large number of martial arts writers, but few of them really understand martial arts skills. Since Pingjiang's death, few martial arts writers have been able to write and see the truth. Yun Zhongyue has been practicing martial arts since he was young, and he is also engaged in the training of secret staff in the army. His martial arts is not general, and he has reached the level of master. Therefore, the description of martial arts in his martial arts novels is more real and credible. The pursuit of truth and realism in history and martial arts also made Yun Zhongyue appreciate the martial arts works of Liu Canyang and Jin Yong.
Philosophy of conduct
Although he has an amazing art career, Yun Zhongyue is more modest. He said that his outlook on life is: a person must not see himself as very detached, must know how to integrate into the society. You can't be too prominent with others, but you can't be too cowardly. In a word, don't bully others, but don't be too cowardly. This kind of idea is the archetype of chivalrous heroes in yunzhongyue's martial arts novels. Yun Zhongyue is quite dismissive of the voice that once despised martial arts novels in the society. He has his unique view: "although the main purpose of martial arts novels is to provide people with entertainment, it can also let modern people know more about ancient history and living conditions through martial arts novels. I believe that martial arts novels occupy a certain position in Chinese literature. Just like American Western novels, they still have their creators and readers. I think no matter what kind of literary works are endowed with the function of social education. Regardless of the differences in the author's personal views on things, as long as it is beneficial to the society, it can be accepted. In short, I am in favor of diversified literary works and development. As for martial arts novels, I think so, and they have the same special significance and value as other literary works. " Many writers' lives are related to their works to a certain extent, and the same happens to martial arts novelists. For example, Liu Canyang, who was born in a gang, was good at writing about the grudges and conflicts between the Greenwood groups, while Yun Zhongyue, who practiced and taught martial arts, of course wrote his own figure in the novel. He thinks that his favorite martial arts novel in his life is the phantom of Beijing, because the plot description is similar to that of most of his military career, and many characters in the novel can even find his own influence.
Yunzhongyue is nearly sixty years old now, but he is as healthy as a man in his prime. He is still diligent in writing every day, and he also attaches great importance to the moderation of his life style. He is not tired of fame, let alone the noise of the world. His character and his works are full of fortitude, which is better than the chivalrous heroes in his works.
