[Thus left behind is only the vast wilderness.] Yet the two of them in it, stark naked, gripping swords, stand withered; with the gaze of the dead enjoying and examining the witheredness of the passers-by, a bloodless slaughter, the two of them perpetually immersed in life’s soaring, climaxing Nirvana.


    — Lu Xun, from “Revenge”, translated by Huiwen Zhang
