(Steve and his Chinese teacher, Miss Yang, are now visiting a literary society.)
Steve: Look, Miss Yang! A picture of Li Bai. I read his poem Still Night Thoughts last night It was easy to understand and very moving. Do you know anything about his life and poetry?
Miss Yang: Yes, Li Bai lived during the Tang dynasty. He is considered to be one of the best romantic poets in China. In his lifetime, he wrote a lot of poetry.
More than 900 of his poems are still read today.
Steve: The passage I read about him said that he was as great as the British poet William Shakespeare.
Look, there is his picture!
Miss Yang: I agree. Li Bai and Shakespeare were both very important poets. You know that Shakespeare was also a famous playwright Many of his plays were about British history while others were comedies and tragedies. His most famous dramas were about the dark side of human nature. Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet are examples of this kind of plays.
Steve: Yes. Romeo and Juliet is very popular around the world, and one of the saddest scenes in this play is when Juliet kisses Romeo and then dies.
