Mu Xin （木心），the pen name of Sun Pu, courtesy name Yangzhong, a Chinese painter, poet and writer. His works draw on both Chinese and Western traditions. The pen name Mu Xin is derived from Buddhist thoughts, meaning an educator with true heart. Mu Xin never married. According to his words: "I have devoted my life to art".
The paintings of Mu Xin are primarily landscape paintings. Mu Xin creatively incorporated the techniques of traditional Chinese paintings and Western paintings.
Mu Xin has also made great achievements in literature. Innovatively combining fiction, prose, and philosophical reflections, Mu Xin's writing is both reminiscent of traditional Chinese culture and western deconstructionism philosophy. His most famous literary works includes fiction An Empty Room, Poem Reminiscence of the Past, and Literary Memoirs, which is the complied notes of his world literature lectures.
Slower Days in the Past
- By Muxin
Slower Days in the Past
Remember young days in the past.
People were sincere and honest.
They honored what they said.
Early morning in the railway station.
Long, dark and empty was the street.
The soybean milk diner was steaming with heat.
Days were slower in the past.
Carriage, horse, and mail did not reach fast.
You need your lifetime to just love the person who is right.
The lock was fine in the past.
The key was exquisite and fit.
You lock and he will get it.
