Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

It wasn't as copious as what they had in the rest of the country - certainly not as dramatic as scenes featured on the BBC - with the snowmen etc. or the skis. It wasn't more than a sprinkling which became bits of ice.

Today I did go out to the railway station to meet a freind but true most of the time I stayed indoors and chatted online. I was sent Lily Allens My Space site - and I did enjoy the songs but my pal scoffed at me for listening to Leonard Cohen.

I get a thrill when I listen to Leonard Cohen such as his song, "I'm your man"


and lyrics that I do not feel for the songs  of Lily's - make no mistake, I think shes good and her songs do have a cleverness about them. I ask myself f its a question of age and gender.
