As the world becomes more and more international, an amalgamation of various cultural, historical, and political elements between the Eastern and Western worlds is unavoidable. Having taken, and excelled in comparative literature, Jingshu Zhang would like to offer a lecture on comparing the great books (novels as well as poetry) from China and the United States. Similarities as well as distinctive differences will be discussed. Deep cultural variances will be delineated, and strikingly intriguing comparisons will be made. The teacher has taught this course across the United States (Michigan, Illinois, and New York), and has been widely acclaimed. Through the process of teaching, the teacher also learned a tremendous amount from the students, and has been constantly trying to improve his own teaching style and making the course more entertaining and also thought-provoking.
