Analysis of the play “I and we” number 3
In the mid-eighties of the twentieth century, the theater-loving public had the opportunity to enjoy the hot and topical plays of the talented poet and playwright Luu Quang Vu. The country’s problems in the period of transformation and renewal to meet the goal of national construction have been mentioned quite specifically, with general meaning in the author’s play I and we. The play created a buzz, evoking reflections on the relationship between the individual and the collective, between backward conservatism and bold innovation, encouraging people to be inspired by their abilities. and enthusiastically determined to change the old way of working and thinking, in order to join hands with everyone to move the country forward.
The whole dramatic conflict revolves around the way of doing business of a state-owned enterprise, associated with two characters: one side is director Hoang Viet and his partner is engineer Le Son – representing those who are determined to change. change old thinking, look for solutions to save the enterprise; On the one hand is deputy director Nguyen Chinh with an old mindset, chasing after achievements, trying to find ways to strengthen his position and surround himself with personal interests. That conflict created a clash of opinions in the meeting of the factory, when Hoang Viet officially declared war on the old habits and renewed the production method according to Le Son’s plan.
Through this dramatic situation, author Luu Quang Vu has made quite bold interpretations of the relationship between me and us, which is different from what many people think. Me and us, that private-common relationship puts two aspects of rights and responsibilities that are often inversely proportional to opportunists, conservatives. Therefore, the struggle is not simple, because it is these people who often put pressure on those who want to renew their thinking and change old ways in the name of the collective.
The play’s third scene excerpt brings together the main characters in the context of a meeting. The drama begins right after the announcement of the production expansion plan and the new business plan of the enterprise by director Hoang Viet, which the person directly drafted is engineer Le Son. Even the person who proposed the plan did not think it was implemented so quickly and decisively. Le Son is a professional, he understands the obstacles that are not due to technical reasons but starting from the opportunistic conservatives who are accustomed to mechanical thinking, depending on their superiors.
Therefore, at first, Le Son was hesitant because he never dared to stand up and face an entire apparatus with prolonged stagnation. His concern created the discontent of the workers, expressed directly in the scene “Everybody is noisy. Mr. Quych’s voice: he’s shy!”. Therefore, the conscience of a good engineer led him to present a plan to touch people like Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh and the Head of Finance Department. The initial knot has been removed, but the main problems have only now really flared up, through the fight of words between Hoang Viet and the other two typical conservative figures.
The dialogue revolves around familiar issues of a manufacturing enterprise: planning, personnel, salary associated with expanded production scale… The polemical nature of the dialogues shows the contrast of views between the two innovation and conservative side. With continuous questions, Hoang Viet demonstrated the bravery of a person who dared to take the lead for the collective interests of the community. With the determination to realize the goal of increasing the production plan by at least five times, he pointed out the absurdity of Nguyen Chinh’s awkward attitude: “the higher superiors rely on the higher-ups even more, meaning are plans devised paradoxically. It should have been brought up from the grassroots, based on the basic capabilities and requirements of the market.” It can be said that Hoang Viet’s attack is not directed at Nguyen Chinh personally, but it is also a declaration of war against an old mechanism that has dominated for decades in state enterprises.
Responding to the director’s opinion, Nguyen Chinh justified with plan two, plan three – borrowed the name for the collective benefit to blame Hoang Viet as an authoritarian individual who denied the rights of public brothers and sisters. core. But Hoang Viet’s affirmation denied the pragmatic way of calculating, seeing only the immediate benefits that turned the regular factory into a place to settle the workers’ lives in a self-interested fashion without considering the common interests of the people. society, community. A regular factory is the basis to stabilize long-term life for workers, which is a right thought so no one objected. The problems of human resources and salary fund were quickly solved by that brave director with reasonable and reasonable solutions.
The ideas of problems were quickly resolved by the orders of the director, but the conservative side – represented by the head of the Finance Department – tried to prevent it with financial principles, despite the need to It is necessary to have a budget to spend on machinery to improve production capacity. More drastically, even when there was a director’s order, she still made an excuse: “I have to follow the rules”. With that kind of person, Hoang Viet showed a decisive and resolute attitude according to the principle of the head: “If you don’t do it, someone else will do it for you”, that statement is not an autocratic, because Probably not from personal motivation.
The spirit of radical innovation is expressed with a will to attack the negatives to show off the new factors that clearly show the quality of director Hoang Viet. Not only that, the issue of top concern is the worker’s life, which he handled flexibly and rationally. Hoang Viet has shown the right qualities of a leader of a production unit, very flexible and also very democratic with his decisions. With such sanity and insight, any attempt to stagnate the reform process would fail and he would win the high confidence of the progressive masses.
The philosophy of the play does not stop at the confrontation between the ego who represents the self and those who use our name for personal gain. It is also a fierce conflict on the point of view of progress and backwardness, innovation and conservatism, thoroughly handling individual and collective relationships, providing a correct understanding of me and us. That’s when Nguyen Chinh raised his voice to defend the outdated management mechanism: “The mechanism that comrade slaughtered has existed for decades. Thanks to it, we have today, have the socialism like today, the grain of rice you eat, the shirt you wear, and even the person you are, have been trained and matured in that mechanism. Don’t be in a hurry to deny it!”. It is indeed a sophisticated fallacy, voiced by someone who has “beaten four generations of directors”, because Nguyen Chinh has relied on “socialism” as the goal of all of us.
But the bravery and determination of the brave director Hoang Viet helped him overcome the formidable resistance of accusations to speak the truth of our true aspirations – those who desire real socialism. development: “Things do not stand still, life does not stand still, there is something that was true yesterday, today it is an obstacle. I have to find a way to break it, hope you understand and sympathize with me.” Once again, Hoang Viet has demonstrated a correct self that does not stray from the principles of socialism, both affirming the will of all of us and exposing the fallacy of an opportunist like Nguyen Chinh.
Set in the context of the 80s of the twentieth century, that thought is bold, like the action of the knight Dong Kisot fighting with a windmill. But Hoang Viet is not alone, the masses who actively support him like Mrs. Bong and Quych, even Le Son, although he can’t help but hesitate before the tense situation, also sided with him like a “Salso horse, very I love and can’t live without Dong Kisot”. Dare to face difficult challenges, knowing that the windmills will give them a fatal blow, but not backing down, that is the beauty and quality of people who go forward. Hoang Viet’s enthusiasm is attractive and convinces people to believe in action.
The reality of our country’s development since the doi moi period has proved that the things set out in Luu Quang Vu’s play are correct and show the predictability of a writer who is passionate about the country. Me and us, each and every person, are sticking together towards a good goal to improve the lives of each person, each family and create momentum for the development of the whole society. Life needs people who dare to think, dare to do, dare to take responsibility for the common good of all of us. The play not only praises an individual Hoang Viet but also encourages a whole collective to join forces to fight against the forces that deliberately hinder the progress of the renovation process.
In the current situation of our country, striving for the cause of “rich people, strong country, a just and democratic society”, successfully realizing the lofty goals of socialism in the country, the more We need brave and honest people like that. With that in mind, Luu Quang Vu’s play “I and We” still has the value of encouraging and encouraging people who do not hesitate to devote their hearts and energies to the country.
Analysis of the play “I and we” number 2
With his sharp, sharp pen, and contemporary thinking, Luu Quang Vu wrote the play Me and We, a topical work, reflecting an aspect of the production process of society. contemporaneous. When the country is in the middle of the “twilight” line, every innovative thought will turn into a crazy, daring idea and face the opposition of those who have backward thinking. I am especially the people with “support” who are always proud and proud.
The excerpt “I and We” is the third scene in the big play of the same name, marking the first conflict of views on changing the ways and modes of operation between two ideologies in a state-owned enterprise called Thang Loi. On the one hand, there is a conservative and backward thought that keeps clinging to the dogmas and regulations set forth by the superiors, without having to think and campaign to see if that regulation is still appropriate or not, that is Nguyen Chinh. (Deputy Director) and Truong (Factory Manager). These two people rely on themselves to have support from Tran Khac (representative of the Inspectorate of the Ministry), so they often blatantly oppose the orders of their superiors, even ignoring the words that Director Hoang Viet said, because they consider it illegal as crazy.
On the other side are representatives of the thought of comprehensive reform and innovation, because they discovered the loopholes and rigid regulations that are restraining the development of enterprises, forcing the lives of workers. This is the cause of many negatives in the enterprise, and representatives must include Hoang Viet (director), Le Son (engineer), Thanh (team leader of workshop 1) and many employees. other kernel.
The opening scene of the excerpt is a meeting of all the people with positions in the factory, director Hoang Viet declares the reason for the meeting and opens it up so that Le Son who has proposed the reform plan can speak. mine. Le Son was originally a shy person, good at doing but not good at speaking, he faltered many times but was led by Hoang Viet with questions, he finally spoke his new idea and perhaps is completely foreign to everyone around.
According to Le Son, “the production level of our factory can increase … 5 times” and if we expand products, raw materials and machinery, we need a lot more workers “about three hundred to five hundred more workers. ” is different from the number of about 200 workers in the existing factory. These are numbers that no one has ever thought of before, and according to the head of the Labor Organization Department, “payroll quotas” are allowed by their superiors, and now there are only 15 such targets left. , cannot be changed according to Le Son’s words.
Hoang Viet inquired about the source of the “production plan” mentioned by the Head of Labor Organization Department, and received the answer that “superior”, but in fact, everyone was confused about that superior. face shape other than a sheet of instructions put down. Hoang Viet quickly realized the illogicality of the problem, which, in his words, was “paradoxically devised plans”. Going to make a plan, the planning must inherently be brought up by the grassroots and then reviewed and approved by the superior, to be reasonable. And Hoang Viet quickly made the decision “Comrades, from now on we will actively make plans for ourselves”.
Of course, that statement of Hoang Viet quickly caused a stir among everyone, successive difficulties began to arise, first of all, the problem of “payroll quota”, Hoang Viet immediately replaced by recruiting suitable workers. VND, but next was the issue of wages for workers, which he also quickly solved by suspending the construction of the guest house and paying the salary in advance. And the big problem is that the finance department refuses to spend money even though it has the signature of the director, it is really difficult, Hoang Viet bravely took the responsibility, but the head of the finance department still refused because of one thing. called “rules” rigid, cliché. In the end, Hoang Viet had to dismiss this woman and replace her with a new one, Ms. Loan, an accountant, to implement her decision, a very drastic but necessary way at this time, because we cannot do something good if there are stubborn people who stand in the way with the rules and principles “oh my god”.
The story did not stop there, at this time Nguyen Chinh, the leader of conservative and backward thought, began to speak, he repeatedly questioned Hoang Viet with difficult questions, but Hoang Viet with a strong position of a director, of course he did not dare to come here empty-handed, he had prepared all the reasonable explanations for this deputy director. He pointed out the negatives “people who take care of lazy people are treated equally” and concluded “what’s so strange about socialism?”, finally setting out the principle that whoever works more enjoys more, whoever works less enjoys less, Hearing that, the workers cheered and clapped their hands excitedly. The Head of Finance Department continued to “chew” the principle without getting bored, but in the end with Hoang Viet’s conclusion, the principle was set by us, she did not say anything more.
About foreman Truong, when he heard that Hoang Viet said that he would quit the foreman position because it was too redundant and wastes time, he began to protest, he felt this was absurd, because in his perception. His position as foreman was very important, but with just one sentence Hoang Viet stopped foreman Truong “No position is important. Only work efficiency is important”. At the end of the meeting, only Mr. Quych and Mrs. Bong remained to encourage and support Hoang Viet. As for Nguyen Chinh, he always uses arguments such as principles, then regulations, especially affirming “The regulation that comrade killed has persisted for decades”, is indeed extremely conservative and backward, perhaps Nguyen Chinh because he is used to sitting without benefit, but does not want to change because once he changes his position may not be able to hold anymore, perhaps this is what he is doing. most worried.
Hoang Viet is very right when affirming to Nguyen Chinh an objective rule “Things do not stand still, life does not stand still, there is something that was true yesterday, today has become an obstacle. We must find a way to break it”. he must be someone who is deeply imbued with the movement laws of Marxism-Leninism. Nguyen Chinh because there was no longer any reason to speak to Hoang Viet again, so he left angrily and left a challenging sentence: “Okay… you’re too confident! Okay, let’s see!”, perhaps he We are looking forward to a day when Hoang Viet fails to gloat, but this is unlikely to happen. Only Le Son and Hoang Viet remained in the room, the two confided in each other, Le Son had a couple of reminders to Hoang Viet about Nguyen Chinh, but Hoang Viet was not discouraged, because he was inherently very stable and confident in his plan. and trust Le Son, an engineer who is shy but has an extremely quick head.
The excerpt is the beginning of a storm in the Thang Loi state enterprise, here there is an ideological battle between two opposing factions, one side is conservative and backward, and the other side is the faction with ideas of reforming the margins. way, working style, towards an enterprise with a higher production level, workers have enough expenses to ensure their lives. And at the beginning of the struggle, the side with the desire for innovative ideas, dare to think, temporarily won thanks to the steadfastness and intelligence of director Hoang Viet, this is also the premise for the conflicts, More fierce struggle awaits at the back of the play.
Analysis of the play “I and we” number 4
Luu Quang Vu – Vietnam’s genius playwright. He left behind many meaningful works. In addition to the play bearing the philosophy of life, Truong Ba’s soul, the butcher’s skin, the play Me and We is also one of the special plays. Especially scene 3 of the play I and We is the most conflicting, most watchable part of the whole play.
The dramatic situation is a contradiction between director Hoang Viet on one side and deputy director Nguyen Chinh on the other. It is a struggle between the new and the old. Hoang Viet realized the difficulties that workers and factories were facing, so he made a bold decision to change the way the factory operates.
Director Hoang Viet represents a new thought, giving ideas to expand production, increase wages for workers, reduce payrolls increase labor contracts, change production methods, be proactive, creative, enterprising do, promote the development trend of society. But in contrast to that new and modern thought, deputy director Nguyen Chinh represents those who still want to keep the old and conservative ways of working.
The old ideology is reflected in the work according to the norms, the financial principles and the principles of labor organization. The mode of production is outdated, inefficient, passive, mechanistic and conservative. That hinders the development of society. It can be said that in the period when the peaceful country is gradually transitioning to a new economy, the war between the new and the old is as fierce as the war for national freedom. It was a one-on-one battle.
Regarding the relationship between the ego and the common self, it is necessary to have a new perspective. The self here is no longer general, but the self covers the general. Within the general self are the specific selves. When the rights and obligations of the self are guaranteed to be consistent with the rights and obligations of the common self, it will form a synergy. In order for the common self to develop, each individual’s ego must also be respected and developed.
Putting the play in the context of the country can see all the pressing problems of our nation. The war is over, but the remnants it left behind are not small. Our people have to work many times over to rebuild the country. Therefore, in the new society, we need to reform with new policies to catch up with other countries in the world.
Analysis of the play “I and we” number 1
Luu Quang Vu (1948 – 1988) was a talented poet, writer, and playwright. His Vietnamese poems are known and loved by many people. He left about 50 plays, most of which were staged, showing a sharp and sensitive artistic style, dealing with a series of hot issues of the doi moi period in the 80s of the last century. our country.
New problems, intense conflicts, tense, engaging dramatic situations, sharp lines… are the unique features of thought and art in Luu Quang Vu’s drama. The play Me and We have nine scenes, this excerpt is the third scene, reflecting the first half of the confrontation between the new and old, progressive and conservative factions at Thang Loi factory.
Hoang Viet – Director and Nguyen Chinh – Deputy Director are two opponents in the conflict between these two new and old factions. Nguyen Chinh said that if you want to produce, you must follow the “superior” plan, recruit workers according to the payroll quota, the Head of the Finance Department said “there is no salary fund for contract workers”, want to buy raw materials. Materials and supplies “must comply with regulations”. each worker will increase four times.The guesthouse must be stopped to pay the workers’ wages for two months, after which it will be refunded.
Workers will not have to worry about “making ropes to earn more”. To increase production, it is necessary to invest, first of all, in people, to end the situation of absurdity and injustice: “the hardworking and the lazy are treated equally, the talented and the ignorant all enjoy the same amount. benefits, even those who do nothing, just sit and talk, are more respected than those who have worked hard.” Ineffective positions such as foreman Truong will be assigned to perform tasks. other, because: “There is no important position. Only work efficiency is important”. Those who make a lot of products will get a high salary, and those who do bad will be fined with money.
To develop production, it is necessary to buy more machinery, fuel, raw materials, and repair broken machinery. Must use check, cash to shop. The Director ordered the Finance Department to provide money for the repair and procurement team and affirmed: “I am responsible.” But the head of the finance department refused to pay. Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh criticized the Director: “Dong. even despite the strict regulations of a whole system of financial, banking, labor, and material agencies…”
Nguyen Chinh’s conservative faction fought back fiercely. Sometimes it is with the principles and resolutions of the Party Committee, sometimes with a moral and compassionate voice: “The mechanism that comrade killed has existed sustainably for decades now. Thanks to it, we have today’s socialism, the grain of rice he ate, the shirt he wore, and even the person he himself was trained and matured in that mechanism. Don’t be so quick to deny it.”
Hoang Viet’s point of view is very new and progressive, very dialectical. He pointed out to Nguyen Chinh and the conservatives: “Things don’t stand still, life doesn’t stand still, there is something that was true yesterday, today it is an obstacle. Must find a way to break. ” Thereby, we see that the conservative ideology and the bureaucratic subsidy mechanism have been dealt strong and drastic blows by the renovation thinking. But the conservative forces have not surrendered. Nguyen Chinh, an incompetent person cunningly “used to overthrow four generations of Directors”. He’s the kind of man who’s dangerous, sinister, ‘the kind of person that if you shake my hand, I have to check if I still have five fingers on my other hand?’. Besides, there are still many forces behind him, that is Tran Khac, the representative of the Ministry’s Inspection Committee!
It’s sad for a conservative subsidy system that “fake it, you get a medal, if you do it for real, you won’t get hit!” The ego that Director Hoang Viet raised is a clear and unequivocal attitude: I do, I take responsibility; “we” is a big idea: we work hard, for our well-being and happiness, for the country’s wealth and beauty.
Me and we are innovation. More than 20 years later, in the face of the good renewal of the country, it becomes more and more clear that Luu Quang Vu’s play is a good and profound play.
Analysis of the play “I and we” number 5
Luu Quang Vu (1948 – 1988) was born in Quang Nam, grew up in Hanoi; joined the army during the anti-American era and began writing poetry in the I960s. By 1980, the author had completely turned to the field of theater. In less than ten years, he has written about fifty scripts, dealing with a series of hot current issues in the period of strong social movement towards innovation. Most of his plays have been staged and performed. He died suddenly from a traffic accident, when his talent was at its peak. In 2000, Luu Quang Vu was posthumously awarded the Ho Chi Minh Prize for Literature by the State
The play Me and We was born in a social situation with great changes. After the great victory in the spring of 1975, the South was completely liberated, the country unified, and began to move into a new historical period. The top political task of the entire Party and people is to restore, renovate and develop the economy to build Vietnam into a rich, strong and prosperous land. Facing this requirement, many old principles, regulations and production methods have become increasingly rigid and outdated. In order to develop production, it is necessary to change thinking, break old and outdated ways of thinking and working, change management and organization methods. to the urgent needs of life. This is a long and fierce struggle, requiring people with intelligence and bravery, dare to think and dare to do.
Luu Quang Vu’s play Me and We was born in that situation and was warmly received by everyone and considered quite successful in terms of content and art by building an attractive dramatic situation with the characters. sharp contrast. The content of the play reflects the fierce struggle to change the way of organization and production activities in Thang Loi factory. On one side is the enterprising spirit, the desire to innovate for the collective benefit, represented by the director of the factory Hoang Viet, team leader Thanh, engineer Le Son and most of the workers. On the one hand, there is a conservative ideology, clinging to rigid and outdated principles and regulations represented by Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh, Factory Manager Truong, supported by representatives of the Board of Directors. Inspector of the Ministry is Tran Khac.
Through describing the conflict between the two sides, the author asserts that there can be no general collectivism, it is impossible to keep forever the old and outdated principles and methods in the face of the rapid change of life. living. We must be formed from many specific selves, so it is necessary to pay attention to the rights and happiness of each individual in the group. Putting the play in the situation of the country in the eighties, we see that the theme of the play is really important.
The current status of Thang Loi enterprise mentioned in this play was quite common to many factories and factories at that time. Old, outdated machinery, small production scale, unreasonable and inefficient organization and division of labor. The life of workers and brothers and sisters is increasingly difficult. Changing production methods has become an inevitable requirement. Advanced people have realized that and aspire to make it a reality. But they were met with fierce opposition from conservatives, flattlers, borrowing the name of defending the tradition that Nguyen Chinh represents. The struggle between the two factions is fierce, but of course the victory will belong to the new people.
The textbook excerpt takes up most of the third scene of the play Me and We (including nine scenes), the content describes the first direct conflict between the two factions (character Hoang Viet, character Nguyen Chinh can considered representatives) when they openly express their views. In the previous two scenes of the play, Luu Quang Vu revealed the conflicting situation and the main characters’ personalities. In the third scene, the author focused on showing the first fierce public confrontation between the two characters that took place in the office of director Hoang Viet. So what is the basic drama and contradiction in this passage?
It is the production stoppage of the enterprise that is time to solve with bold decisions. After a thorough investigation, today, acting director Hoang Viet (who has just received this position for more than a year) decided to announce a plan to expand production and a new business plan. This means that he (along with engineer Le Son) has openly declared war on the outdated management mechanism and organizational method. Hoang Viet’s announcements continuously surprised many people.
The reaction of the Head of Labor Organization and the Head of Finance related to payroll and salary fund. Factory Manager Truong’s reaction related to production efficiency and worker management. When Hoang Viet insisted on reform, the reaction of this group of people became more and more fierce. The above conflicts prove that in order to expand production scale, enterprises need to make many drastic and synchronous changes.
The details that the author gives prove the tension between the new and the old. That is reflected in the character of typical characters, whose character is mainly revealed through actions and language. Director Hoang Viet is a leader with bravery and high sense of responsibility, dare to look. straight to the truth, bravely correcting mistakes, dynamic, dare to think, dare to do, know how to use capable and capable people to serve the interests of the collective, for the development of the enterprise. Faced with great difficulties of the enterprise, Hoang Viet convened a meeting of the entire management board to present the production expansion plan and new business plan. According to him, in order to develop production scale, it is necessary to make full use of the labor capacity of workers, but to do so, it must take care of enough supplies and raw materials.
After that, it is necessary to equip new machines and improve the skills of workers. The new direction given by Director Hoang Viet touches on the production plan targets of the enterprise given down by the superiors. The salary fund of the enterprise is only enough to pay for the number of workers on the payroll. If you want to expand production, you need more workers, which means you need money to pay workers’ wages, but money is not available. The legal provisions, the rights and responsibilities of a director, Hoang Viet also does not have. The gayest part is that most members of the leadership team do not support him. Let’s try to see how Hoang Viet will solve those great difficulties.
First of all, he solved the problem of salary budget with a sudden and bold decision: In the immediate future, we will stop building guest houses, will have money to pay two months’ salary. It will be refunded later. This action of the Director was brave because he broke the old mechanism and dared to take responsibility for his actions. Next, he mentioned the repair of broken machinery, setting up a product-based salary system to increase the wages of workers.
According to his calculations: If the salary is paid, the productivity of each worker will increase by five times, no one will have to worry about processing ropes to earn more. The level of production of the factory will increase by at least five times, of course the wages of factory workers must increase at least four times… With that minimum wage, can the workers live without starving to death? wrongdoings. If you want to increase production, you have to invest. The first place to invest is people. Even the engine must have enough fuel for it to work… And do a good job. Our long-standing bad is that the hardworking and the lazy are treated equally, the talented and the ignorant all enjoy the same level of rights, even those who do nothing, just sit and talk. more respect than those who have worked hard to contribute. What’s so strange about socialism? No, from now on, whoever makes more products will have to get a higher salary, whoever does bad will be fined with money, that will be the principle of our factory!
That accurate and enthusiastic statement of Director Hoang Viet was applauded by everyone. Director Hoang Viet solved the production stagnation of the enterprise with comprehensive and strong guidelines and measures. That shows his firm belief in himself and in the strength of the workers’ collective. Being an honest person, Hoang Viet bravely fought with the belief that the truth would prevail. He boldly changed the conservative and incompetent leadership. When the head of the Finance Department refused to pay, he said: “If you don’t do it, someone else will do it for you… Ms. Loan, the accountant – Head of the Finance Department, prepare for the workers to receive a new salary from next month. “He removed the position of Manager Zhang when he realized that if he produced under the new system, he would be redundant: The team leaders had to take care of those things themselves. The team leaders will work directly with the heads of the branches and the Board of Directors, without having to go through an intermediary who is the Manager to do anything to waste time. In summary, we consider that: In our enterprise, the position of Workshop Manager is redundant, from now on, the enterprise will no longer have the position of Manager.
When Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh deliberately relied on superiors, principles, and resolutions of the Party Committee of the enterprise to protest violently, Director Hoang Viet sternly declared: – You are Deputy Director, that is. Assistant position for the Director. If you do not agree with that position, you can resign… You know well that behind Ms. Head of Finance Department, Mr. Workshop Manager, Mr. Deputy Director of the factory… there are superiors and mechanisms. the old defends and defends them. Hoang Viet cannot carry out good intentions easily, but he believes that his work is pure, is in accordance with the law, will definitely be supported by the workers’ collective.
Le Son is a qualified engineer with good professional qualifications, having worked with the enterprise for many years. Although he knew that the fight against old and outdated thinking would be very difficult, he still accepted and was ready to work with Hoang Viet to comprehensively reform the operation of the enterprise. He is the one who directly drafted the new plan. However, he could not help but wonder because of the many difficulties and obstacles piled up in front of him. But he is still willing to work with the Director to implement the right and progressive ideas. He told the Director that: – Okay, promise me: I won’t run away! Only next week will the new production process be launched. Mr. Dong Kisot suffers from me, I am like the horse Sancho, very loving and indispensable to Dong Kisot. Hey, but surely the windmills will give us a beating to the death!
The street director Nguyen Chinh is typical of a mechanical person, conservative but also docile and full of tricks. Nguyen Chinh has always relied on mechanisms and principles that have become obsolete to fight innovation. He is a poor professional, but he is clever at sneaking around and flattering his superiors. Let’s listen to the dialogue between Director Hoang Viet and Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh:
– Mr. Viet, I hope everything you just said, you will think again.
– I have thought very carefully.
– I feel like I’m falling asleep.
– Then wake up.
– I’m afraid it’s you who’s asleep, upsetting a bunch of routines, breaking a bunch of rules. How will you explain to your superiors?
– As I just explained to comrades.
– You defied the strict regulations of a whole system of financial, banking, labor, and material agencies…
– The regulations have long been unreasonable, serving an old and outdated management mechanism.
– Outdated and outdated. No, the mechanism that the comrade killed has existed sustainably for decades now. Thanks to it, we have today, have the socialism like today, the grain of rice you eat, the shirt you wear, and even the person you are, have been trained and matured in that mechanism. Don’t be in a hurry to deny it!
– Things do not stand still, life does not stand still, there is something that was true yesterday, today it is an obstacle. Must find a way to break, hope you sympathize and understand me.
– All the things you intend to do are not included in the resolution of the Party Committee of the enterprise. The Party Committee hasn’t decided yet, comrade Viet.
– Yes. The Party Committee’s resolution is to boost production and stabilize workers’ lives. How to implement measures is the responsibility of the Director.
– But… comrade Viet… Don’t we have any rights? I am…
– Comrade is the Deputy Director, that is, the position of assistant to the Director. If you do not agree with the position, you can resign…
– Okay, comrade, you’re too confident! Alright let’s see…
When Nguyen Chinh angrily left, engineer Le Son said to Director Hoang Viet:
– You’re in such a hurry! You have underestimated our Deputy Director! That person has defeated four generations of Directors. He’s the type of person that if he shakes my hand, I have to check if he still has five fingers! Compared to him, you’re just a lamb. From now on, Chinh won’t stop you anymore, he will let you get involved in things before he takes action. He’ll have a place and a place to do it… Aren’t you afraid?
The reaction of Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh was very harsh because he had a solid support from his superiors, principles and resolutions of the Party Committee of the enterprise.
Factory manager Truong is a person who thinks and works like a machine, likes to be powerful and bossy to workers. His job so far has been to look after, manage and urge the workers’ teams, prevent negative phenomena, and report to the Director. When Director Hoang Viet confirmed that he would no longer hold this position, he immediately expressed his displeasure: I don’t understand… If we have any shortcomings, you can reprimand, discipline, over there. … In the past, the workshop still had to have a foreman. It’s not that I’m greedy for status, but abolishing an important position like Workshop Manager is really…
At this point, we can clearly see the sharp contradiction between the two lines of characters, representing the innovators and conservatives in the uncompromising struggle between the new and the old. This is an inevitable and fierce struggle: The conflict situation that the play raises is a hot topical issue of real life. New concepts and new ways of doing things in the early stages of course will encounter many obstacles.
This struggle is very tough and arduous, but in the end the victory will belong to the new, the progressive. Because the way of thinking, the daring way of Hoang Viet, Le Son, Thanh… is in line with the requirements of real life, promoting the upward development of society. They are not alone but have the support of the majority of workers in the factory.
Through the above excerpt, we can see the fierce struggle between people who boldly innovate and those who carry conservative and backward ideas in the context that the country has many drastic changes to rise and develop. developed according to the requirements of history.
Analysis of the play “I and we” number 6
In the dialogue between Director Hoang Viet and Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh after engineer Le Son presented the factory’s production expansion plan and new business plan, two opposing views appeared. Opponent, Deputy Director Nguyen Chinh: “I thought I was asleep”. Director Hoang Viet “Then wake up”.
That dialogue reflected the uncompromising struggle between one side who believed that innovation must be made because there is innovation in order for the objective laws to operate: production and development, socio-economic life and human life. raised. The conservative side has the opposite view: the subsidized bureaucratic system and method has existed for decades, that mechanism has existed and will remain unchanged. Although it is only the voice of two key people in an enterprise with several hundred workers, its general meaning is not small. It is a society-wide struggle. This explains the deep and broad appeal of me and them to audiences of a time of innovation.
Dramatic situations start from a new way of thinking, a new way of doing things that overturn all routines, ways of thinking, and ways of doing things so far. The idea was so bold that although the Director supported it, when presenting it with a carefully drafted plan, engineer Le Son was not without hesitation. For Le Son, it is like an illusion “because in reality it will… not be possible”. Because if deployed, it will encounter many obstacles that advocates are just like a foolish, naive Dong Kisot and “definitely the windmill it will give us a fatal blow”. The new idea is clearly a challenge that the promoter must bravely face.
Hoang Viet and Le Son were the ones who “fired the first shot” at the ideological stronghold that was actually shaken (conservative, stagnant bureaucracy) but claimed to be solid. Investing to expand production, changing wage principles to encourage labor, these are the breakthroughs. By doing so, the production level of the enterprise can increase by five times compared to the present level, and the wages of the factory workers will also increase accordingly (at least four times the present level). State-owned enterprises that think of ways to increase products for the state, enrich society, and fundamentally improve the lives of workers is the dream and aspiration of many people.
But the problem is this: it encounters constraints. Then we have to break those ties, we have to untie for production. What was true of yesterday is no longer true of today, as Hoang Viet said: “Things do not stand still, life does not stand still… there is what was true yesterday, today it is an obstacle. We must find a way to break it”. In the drama, how much conservatism and stagnation were exposed, such as the production of the enterprise that should have been set forth by the enterprise, but had always been decided by the superiors, and this superior depended on them. to a higher level. It’s ambiguous, paradoxical to “paradoxical”. Who created the plans two, plans three (enhancement of workers’ lives by informal means)? “A full-time enterprise only needs one plan. Our enterprise only has one plan, but it’s a plan set by us. The production plan will no longer be at the current level.
In the short term, the plan will increase at least five times.” The issue of autonomy in the enterprise touches many problems around it. salary, etc. and yet, it touches how many specific people represent the old mechanism of the days of bureaucratic subsidies (Mr. Deputy Director, Ms. Head of Finance Department, Comrade Factory Manager, …) They are people, even holding key positions of the enterprise, but if necessary or if they are no longer needed, they cannot be left to sit in bureaucratic chairs. The play’s ideological network has the effect of paving the way for a new phase of the country.It has been widely accepted, agreed and encouraged by readers and viewers.
2. Regarding drama characters, it can be divided into two types. If Nguyen Chinh, Truong, and Ms. Head of the Finance Department represent the old mechanism, for the old way of thinking, Hoang Viet and Le Son represent the new. trend towards the right of society. The negative characters seem to have some kind of mental compromise to be on the same front, to connect with each other but each one is different. There is the mechanical simplicity of Truong, being a foreman because the organization of the choir needs a leadership position (as it has always been). There is the rigidity and stubbornness of the head of the Finance Department. Habits of authority, she tries to obstruct, outright opposes in a principled manner, according to the assigned task.
And Nguyen Chinh has two faces, throws stones and hides his hands. Talking to the Director, he was very polite and gentle, but according to Le Son’s assessment, he was a master, waiting for the Director to get bogged down before taking action and he had a place, a place. to do it. A person who “has toppled four directors” still knows who to respect and who to fear. That way of “shut up and eat money” belongs to the not-so-simple personalities that one must be careful, watchful of, and always be on guard against. The light in this drama class is from the character Hoang Viet. This is the model of the new man in the current period. To put it briefly and simply, it is a strong, dynamic personality that dares to think, dare to speak and dare to do.
You can think of him as a soldier on a battlefield without gunfire, describing the conflict between the tight circle of swords and swords. You can also think of him as a pioneer flag ahead of the road, an arduous path to find happiness. For engineer Le Son, Hoang Viet encourages, motivates, creates conditions, awakens his desire to dream: “I just clear the yard for you to shoot the ball, so that your head can have room to use”. But for the characters that get in the way, he’s sharp. To foreman Truong, who does not cease to wonder if his “important position” is removed, Viet said bluntly: “There is no important position at all, only work efficiency is important”.
For Ms. Head of Finance Department who likes to put out regulations and principles to make it difficult to refuse to execute the Director’s orders, the Director has no hesitation: “If you don’t implement it, someone else will do it for you.” . As for what a Deputy Director is, before a seemingly complicated and roundabout question, Viet has an accurate, immediate and straightforward definition: “That is, the position of assistant to the Director. If you disagree with the position, Then, you can resign.” It means that the Director is ready to face all possible situations.
Sharp, confident, decisive, are these qualities necessary for those in leadership positions that Hoang Viet currently has. Virtue and talent in characters are no longer general concepts. It has turned into the ability to act, the ability to turn the situation so that life moves forward and accordingly, people also perfect their personality. That’s why the play is both combative and humanistic.
