Douban 9.3 points!One in the pit, the complete book

The Spring Festival challenge of 7 books in 7 days, Xiao Tu failed.And failure of the main culprit, is it – the text on page 522 (why is the body rather than the full text, because afraid of being revealed no drama and picture to read the preface つ man ⊂), 436000 – word book, insets from February 6, 2022, (people), today (February 13) read all morning, altogether 8 days spent about 21 hours of time.Finally, I understand why the book friends suggest the small picture big New Year’s day, carefully choose it.To be honest, it’s not that easy to read.With two or three or even one paragraph on a dense page, it’s easy to read sequentially if you’re not paying attention.The content is not that easy to digest, in addition to a lot of English or difficult academic terms, there are many knowledge points need to draw lines to deepen memory, need to stop to think, need to record feelings.That’s why I can’t read it like a novel in one sitting.It is my fault, not his, that I can’t absorb it. But it is not that hard to read.Don’t be put off by the author’s title as a structural anthropologist, Levi-Strauss. It’s not unreadable.Random excerpts of the text, are flashing the brilliance of the author’s thoughts.When I complain that I can only ever see some shadow of the truth of the past, I may be insensitive to the truth of the present, because I have not yet reached the point where it is possible to see the development of the truth of the present…Everything I saw revolted me, and I kept blaming myself for not seeing as much as I should have.Every man carries with him a world made up of all that he has seen and loved, and even though he seems to travel and live in a different world, he keeps returning to the world he has dragged with him.Written between 1954 and 1955, this book is an autobiography of ideas with the character of a travel book.The author’s explorations as an anthropologist, which took place between 1937 and 1941, are interspersed with previous events and memories, supplemented by accounts of others more than a decade later.At that time, people seldom traveled.Travel books at the time told you how many suitcases to carry, what the dogs did on the boat, and some corny bits of knowledge.And the travel lectures that the anthropologists gave when they came back were bleak.There is only one small theatre in Paris, in a state of disrepair, for lecturers to give such lectures.The audience was so small that every time the speaker was desperate, a crowd of children, their mothers or babysitters would run in and fill the auditorium, probably just looking for a change of scenery and a place to sit.But even this has not stopped anthropologists from exploring the world.Levi-strauss, a Frenchman who was interested in studying Indians, used boats as his first means of transportation when exploring Brazil or other countries.Boats of that era, the sailing experience is not good at all.At one point, Levi-Strauss had a hard time getting a ticket.They boarded the ship under the watchful eyes of armed security guards and found 350 people crammed into a small steamer with only two small rooms and a shipment of black cargo.The sanitary conditions and rest on board were deplorable.The deck became a dining room, a bedroom, a baby’s room, a bath and a sunbath.The railings on either side of the deck, one for the ladies, the other for the men.There were also two wooden houses, neither ventilated, one with a shower and water only in the morning;Another room has a small wooden trough leading to the sea for squatting.The ship swayed so much that squatting was impossible, and passengers who wanted privacy had to scramble for pothole at around 3 a.m.Bathing situation is not much better, you have to get up early to grab a seat, too many people, water supply is insufficient, the tap water seems to turn into steam, can not get up at all.Of course, there are beautiful experiences.Levi-strauss was deeply impressed by the beauty of sunrises and sunsets he saw over the ocean.Before reading this book, I knew very little about Indians and never took the initiative to learn about them.Following the perspective of Levi-Strauss, I realized that the Indians were also divided into many tribes and groups, and learned about their strange customs and beliefs.Indians mostly live in the forests and sometimes migrate.It’s hard to approach them and study them.The language, the geography, the transportation, and the Hostility of the Indians to outsiders.Levi-strauss had to organize the expedition locally, provide food, pay and supplies for the explorers.In the process, Levi-Strauss suffered a lot.A group of cattle, which looked strong and were bought to carry supplies, had actually run only 500 kilometers, and fell dead and wounded shortly after the expedition.On the contrary, the cattle chosen by the leader arrived safely at their destination.After hastily leaving to exchange gifts with a group of Indians, Levi-Strauss became separated from his guide and lost in the woods.In the travel book, you can shoot into the air to find your partner.The first shot, no response;The second shot, no response;The third shot, but his horse – cattle away.He hides his camera or something and goes to the forest to look for the cow, finds the cow, doesn’t know his way but he can’t find the hiding place anymore.Because of this drive, Levy was able to observe and study the Indians up close, learning their language, collecting information about them, and exploring their mysteries.Indians also have classes of nobility and things like that.A noble Indian woman refused the invitation of the governor of another race to go to Kubaya, because she feared that if he should make her a suitor, she would neither accept nor offend him by refusing.Some Indians are monogamous but do not like to have children, and rely on adoption rather than reproduction to continue their offspring.Some Indians are divided into the Chula and the Tugareg tribes, who help each other selflessly.The village head is always elected from the half-tribe, but the title of the village head is inherited by the female department;A man can never belong to one half race with his father and son; he must belong to one half race with his mother.One half could only marry the other. The woman proposed, the woman inherited the house, and the man moved out of the place where he had grown up to live with the woman.Funerals for the dead of one half of the tribe can only be done by the other.Levi-strauss, however, did not stop at describing these phenomena, but at exploring their meaning.When this world began, people did not exist. When this world ends, people will not exist.I shall spend a lifetime describing how human institutions, morals, and customs, which men try to understand, are but a fleeting and glorious flower.And at the beginning of the book, the author says, “I hate travel. I hate explorers.However, I am now ready to relate my own adventures.”Are you ready?Let’s follow the footsteps of Levi-Strauss into a melancholy tropical adventure!Melancholy tropical (hard back), structural anthropology master Levi – Strauss’s famous ideological autobiography, is one of the classics in the history of anthropology.By Claude Levi-Strauss, Translated by Wang Zhiming Publishing House: Renmin University Press of China: Tropical Melancholy (paperback) Is an autobiography.As a young man, the author made field visits to the Amazon basin and the highland forests of Brazil.This book records the author’s thinking process and life experience in several primitive tribes such as Kaduvieo, Bololo and Nambiwala.”Tropicana Melancholy” is one of the anthologies, bibliography shows that this collection of 15 volumes.As a guide, Xiao Tu collected some of the Works of Levi-Strauss collected works and the collection of Levi-Strauss letters that are currently on sale on China Library Network, and sorted them out.The Path of the Mask (hard cover) is a famous French master of structuralism and cultural anthropologist, the founder of structuralism anthropology, the representative work of Levi-Strauss humanities.Author: Claude Levi-Strauss, Zhang Zujian Translation & Publishing House:The author believes that mythological thinking is an intermediary.
