Analysis about the inner world of the vulnerable women

Made by WangYuhan

Brief introduction The protagonist (Lu) was driving on the 318 National Road. During his journey, he met a whore called NaNa in an inn. He had sex with Nana without knowing she had already been pregnant. The next day, they were caught by the local police. After paying the penalty, they were released. Then they spent another 2 days together in Lu’s trip. The conversation between them and the experience they recalled depict a hypocritical, immoral and dark world which we are living in.

On the contrary, the whore is a sincere woman in the hypocritical world. She wants to give birth to the baby in her belly even though she didn’t know who the baby’s father is. With the wish to bring the baby up and send the baby to good school to receive good education, she plans to make and save money by doing more prostitution. As she says, she is not able to make money by other ways. After all, she is a whore who has her own thoughts and has projected her and her baby’s future.

That’s strange. How can I sympathy for a criminal or a whore? As Mr. Zhang always says, a great writer has the ability to write a story from the perspective of some humble, lowly status persons and even make readers cannot help themselves to give help to them and show sympathy for those marginal men(边缘人).

Women Vulnerable group Special feeling for babies Three characters Kiwako Caoru NaNa

Kiwako a kidnaper and the third person
Female kidnaper Not for money On the one hand, she has the instinct that she could not escape, that she would be arrested in the end. On the other hand, she has the feeling that the god may bless her. Simply loves Caoru

I want to stay here. I want to live here. But instinct told me there was little chance of that now. (P146) There’s no telling how long we’ll be here, but I have a feeling I’ll be able to stay long enough to make the rounds of all the holy places. As I prayed at a temple, Kaoru watched me, wondering what I could be doing. (P123)

Q: Why Kiwako loves a baby who is not her biological daughter so deeply?
A: 1.Kiwako has no chance to give her love to her own baby. She turns to Caoru to express her love as a mother. 2.Meanwhile, in her life, she couldn’t get the love she desired or give love to the man she loves, so she shows her love to the baby as a way of relieving her love. 3.Another possible answer is that Caoru is so cute that she makes Kiwako feel warm and familiar.

Caoru the third person and pregnant woman Q: Why would she love a married man, Kishda ? Not that I didn’t want to see him myself. I did. I really wanted to be with him. I wanted to feel him run his fingers through my hair and hold me tight. I was afraid of ending up like that “woman”. (P170)

A: My answer is, after Caoru being sent back home, she had never lived a normal life. Her parents couldn’t give her appropriate love she need although they tried hard to do it. The people around her didn’t treat her as a normal person. She lacked love and understanding before she met Kishda. Obviously, Kishda is not a perfect man. What’s worse he is a married man. But he gave comfort to Caoru. He brought Caoru what she had never experienced before.

A: He gave me a birthday present. He took me to see the fireworks. At Christmas, after he’d helped decorated my room, we had a little party, just the two of us. He was the first to send me an e-mail at the New Year. He taught me how much fun having dinner with someone could be……(P195)

He really gave his love to her although he is dishonest with his own wife. So the conclusion is: sometimes a woman can fall in with a man who’s a liar and a cheat, who can never make up his mind. Understanding it, though, makes me thoroughly disgusted with myself. (P175)

NaNa a pregnant whore Q: Why dose insist to give birth to the baby in her belly? She even has no idea who the father is.
maternal love (母爱) unselfish

A: No matter what misfortunes they have suffered, when the mums notice they are pregnant, they are unwilling to have an abortion. Even though these mums are tortured by life, they firmly believe life can be better for the next generation. They are vulnerable person themselves in the world but they try hard to protect their baby, to avoid them experiencing the same adversities and to guide them to live a normal life full of happiness. They reject abortion, though, as far as I see, giving birth to those babies may be a tragedy for the babies.
