Fuqui, son of a welathy landowner turned peasant lived a life of suffering as he had to endure the pain of burying his two children, wife, son-in-law and grandson. All that is left in his life was an old ox he bought from a slaughter house. Although he has more reason to die than most people, he keeps on living.
Whew! Heavy but this piece was beautifully written.
