To thank the all of the staff for contribution to our company’s development, but also to enhance the exchanges and communications between colleagues, SAM-UK company organized this meaningful travel to Shaoxing on Labour’s Day.
As known to all, the traffic is really heavy, in order to avoid the traffic jam on the high speed way, we got up early. See, some were going on their sweet sleep on the road.
After 3 hours’ drive, our big family arrived Lu Xun’s former residence.
Here I’d like to introduce this great Chinese writer ---- Luxun :
Lu Xun died 65 years ago, but his literature and thought still receive great attention and his popularity appears unlikely to die out.
“His works do not belong only to one nation, but are of global value,’’ Feng Tie, a Chinese scholar now living in Germany, told a recent international academic symposium on ``The World of Lu Xun and the Lu Xun of the World.’’
Lu Xun, born in Shaoxing County in Zhejiang Province on September 25, 1881, was one of the country’s greatest thinkers and man of letter in the 20th century. He died in 1936.
Lu wrote a number of literary classics, including ¨°The True Story of Ah Q,`` `A Madman’s Diary,`` ``Kong Yiji’’and``Medicine,’’ which exposed the ugly side of human nature and emancipated people’s minds.
When he was alive, his works stood out like a lighthouse, providing a guiding light for perplexed Chinese youths who were passionate about China’s future, Xinhua news agency said.
After he passed away, Japanese found out from his works the strength to rejuvenate their country, which was shattered during World War II.
Over the past decades, thousands of experts and scholars around the world have studied his works from almost every possible angle, such as culture, psychology, arts, linguistics, the outlook of love and the attitude toward life.
In China, studies of Lu Xun have flourished into a special academic field, which holds such a position that it can be paralleled to that of the ¨Dream of the Red Mansion,`` which is one of the country’s four classical literature masterpieces.
Lu Xun’s works have been translated into such languages as English, Russian, German, and Korean and distributed throughout the world.
Now, let’s share our happy journey with all of you.
