Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact
man. Histories make men wise; poems witty; the mathematics subtle;
natural philosophy deep; moral grave; logic and rhetoric able to
contend. ——Francis Bacon(1561-1626)

Part Five: Suicide

Polonius’s son, Laertes, returns to Denmark from Paris. He is very

‘Claudius, you have killed my father. I shall persuade the people to
rebel against you. There will be a revolution!’

‘No, Laertes, Hamlet is responsible for everything!’

‘But how did my father die? Why is it a secret?’

‘Be patient. When I have explained everything, you will understand. I am
your friend.’

Ophelia comes to see Laertes .She loved Hamlet but he killed her father.

This has made her mad. She sings sad songs and gives flowers to everyone
she meets.

‘What is the matter with my sister?’

‘She has lost her mind, poor girl.’

‘He is dead, lady, he is dead. He will never come again. His beard was
as white as snow. He is gone, he is gone. Love, remember me.’

‘Do you see this? Oh God!’

A sailor brings a letter to Horatio. When he opens it, he discovers that
it is from Hamlet.


I am in Denmark. Some pirates attacked our ship.While every body was
fighting, I jumped onto their ship. I paid them and they brought me home
to Denmark.

Losencrantz and Guildenstern have continued to England. I shall tell you
more about them when I see you. Meet me in the graveyard.


‘I shall go to him immediately. I am glad he is safe.’

Claudius also receives a letter from Hamlet. He has a private
conversation with Laertes.

‘But why didn’t you put Hamlet in prison?’

‘He is very popular with the people. It was impossible to punish him.
The best thing was to send him to England.’

‘He has killed my father and driven my sister out of her mind! I would
do anything to get my revenge.’

‘This letter is from Hamlet. He is back in Denmark.’

‘I’m glad. I will kill him.’

‘I have a better plan.’

The Queen comes in. ‘I have bad news, Laertes. Ophelia is dead. She
wanted to put flowers on the willow tree . While she was climbing, she
slipped and fell into the river. She floated there, singing, then she

‘Was it suicide?’

‘Nobody knows. Perhaps it was an accident. Oh, sweet Ophelia! I hoped
she would marry Hamlet. Come, let us go and bury her.’

‘Now Hamlet has killed my father and my sister.’

        It was a hard experience watching this move, it makes me
depressed and cornered. A little boy who’s father is a Commander in
Hitler’s army is moved to a house where near the place heid father
worked. His father is just pointed as a person in charge of a camp where
the Jew was collected and sent into gas chamber while the world war Ⅱ.
Bruno—the little boy did miss his old-day friends deadly and he felt fed
up with soldiers here. He is always dreaming of being a Explorer, but
the back garden is forbidden for him to get in. Someday when no one
notice him, he get through the small window and across a forest
eventually reached a camp which he used to think it was farm. He met a
boy in the striped pyjamas, he is small,bold and always hungry. He
doesn’t dare to speak to or even look Bruno at first but soon they
become friends. Since then, Bruno commonly go to play with Shmul when he
is able to sneak out. At the same time Bruno and sister get a tutor who
doesn’t allow Bruno reading adventure books. Instead, he forced Bruno to
read those history books on which the Jew was described as devils and
vermins. One day, Shmul is asked to clean the glasses with his small
hands in Bruno’s home, Bruno give him some cakes to eat. Herr Kolter who
is a officer under Bruno’s father thought that Shmul was stealing, he is
so serious that Bruno cannot tell the truth, so Shmul is strictly
punished. Bruno hasn’t seen Shmul for several days, when he see Shmul
again, Shmul gets an awful hurt on his face, Bruno feels guilty and
promise that he will get in and help Shmul to find his missing father.
The day Bruno is supposed to get away here, he get in the camp. When his
father finds him he was already died in the gas chamber with Shmul hand
in hand.
         Such a topic always take my breath away, the emotion it
delivered reamins a long period. The war is cruel but the human beings
more. The ending is already wrote inthe history book and it will never
be a happy ending.

A Brief Introduction of Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web, written by American authorE.B.White, is a book
about how a little girl named Fern, with the help of a friendly
spider named Charlotte, saved the pig, Wilbur, from the usual
fate of pigs.

When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte
writes messages praising Wilbur (such as “Some Pig”) in her web.

Charlotte’s Web is considered a classic of children’s
which is also popular with adults.

The book was first published in 1952, with illustrations by Garth

Charlotte’s Web was made into an animated feature by Hanna-Barbera
Productions and Paramount Pictures in 1973.

Paramount released a direct-to-video sequel, Charlotte’s Web 2:
Wilbur’s Great Adventure, in the US in 2003 (Universal released the
film internationally).

A live-action film version of E. B. White’s original story was
released on December 15, 2006.

A video game based on this adaption was also released on December 12.

Bruno: He is a little angel with bright eyes and clean clothes. He has
no idea how dark is the world, all he wanna do is to be a explorer, but
this time, he should have stayed in his little warm house. All what he
saw in the video tape is fake, all what he learned by the tutor is fake,
but he still think that his father is only try to wash the Jew by taking
them into the gas chamber, what a mock.
Shmul: He gets a pair of blue eyes, he suffers from Malnutrition, he is
kind and innocent. When he give his hand to Bruno to foegive what Bruno
did, I feel too sad to say a word. When ur life is not what u can choose
or control is will be kind of sorrow in the vein.
Father: He loves his family and children, but being a soldier what he
can do is obeying the orders. At the end, he lost his son, I know that
he is disconsolate inside, but what about the jew who lost their
Herr Kolter: He is a serious officer, cold-blooded and barbarous, what
happened to him is what he deserves.
Mother: She is a really good woman, but what her husband is doing is not
what she can intervene.
Sister: A little who is educated with a strong hate to Jews. She is a
lanmentable instance in that product.

  1.A) The return of bottled message to its owner‘s daughtter。

Part Four: Fortune’s Fool 

At that moment, Tybalt returned.

‘Boy!’ shouted Tybalt. ‘You came here with Mercutio and you will die as
he did!’

Romeo was so angry that he lost control. He took out his sword and
fought with Tybalt. He killed him.

‘He killed my friend. Now he is dead. He is with Mercutio. Juliet, your
love made me a coward but now I am brave.’

Benvolio took his arm. ‘Romeo, you must escape. The people are coming.

The Prince will punish you with death .’

‘Oh, I am Fortune’s fool!’ With those words, Romeo ran away.

Soon, the citizens arrived, followed by the Prince. They saw Mercutio
and Tybalt lying dead on the ground.

‘Where are the people who began this fight? ‘ Ask the Prince angrily.

‘I can tell you the complete story,’ promised Benvolio.

‘Oh Tybalt!’ screamed Lady Capulet. ‘My brother’s child. He has been
murdered. A Montague must die for this.’

‘Romeo wanted to stop the fight,’ explained Benvolio. ‘But Tybalt killed
Mercutio. Then Romeo killed Tybalt.’

‘He is lying !’ said Lady Capulet. ‘He is a Montague. Romeo killed

So Romeo must not live.’

‘Romeo killed Tybalt. But Tybalt killed Mercutio,’ said the Prince.

‘Mercutio was Romeo’s friend,’ agreed Lord Montague. ‘Romeo was right to
kill his friend’s killer.’

The Prince spoke seriously. ‘No! It is wrong to kill. We banish Romeo
from Verona! If I find him in the city, he will die! We must not show
mercy to murderers.’

Those were the Prince’s final words. Romeo had to leave Verona and never

Juliet was waiting for Romeo, her new husband. She wanted the night to
come quickly so that they could be together. But when the Nurse arrived,
she brought bad news.

‘He is dead!’

‘Who is dead?’

‘I saw the body with my own eyes. He is dead.’

‘What? Is Romeo dead?’

‘No, Tybalt is dead. Romeo has killed him. Romeo is banished, he must
leave Verona.’

‘Did Romeo kill my cousin? He is a villain. But I love him.’

Juliet was very unhappy.

‘Your father and mother are crying for Tybalt,’ the Nurse told her.

‘I will cry for him too,’ said Juliet. ‘But I will cry longer for Romeo.
I will never see him again. I will kill myself.’

‘No,’ said the Nurse. ‘Romeo is hiding with Friar Laurence. I will bring
him to you.’

‘Yes, Nurse, bring him to me quickly. Give him this ring. He must come
and say his last goodbye.’

Romeo was talking to Friar Laurence. ‘Everything is finished. I must
leave Verona and never see Juliet again. Even a cat or a dog or a mouse
may look at Juliet. But I cannot. Give me poison or a knife to kill

‘You are mad. The Prince has shown mercy. He lets you live.’

‘You are old, Friar. But I am young and in love. I want to die.’

‘No, be brave. You must go to Mantua. You will be safe there. I will
send you news about Juliet. One day, you will be together again. But
here is the Nurse.’

‘How is Juliet?’ Romeo asked her immediately.

‘She cries and cries. First, she calls out Tybalt’s name, then she calls
for Romeo. Then she falls on her bed.’

‘Tonight, go with the Nurse,’ said the Friar. ‘See Juliet for the last

Romeo went back to the house of the Capulets. The Nurse took him into
the garden. Nobody saw them.

‘Here is a ladder,’! she said. ‘Climb up and go through the window.’

So Romeo spent his marriage night with Juliet.

Downstairs, in the house of the Capulets, Lord and Lady Capulet were
talking. Lord Paris was with them.

‘I will talk to Juliet. She will marry you next Wednesday…’

‘That’s too soon,’ said Lady Capulet.

‘On Thursday then. Tybalt is dead. There must be something good for the
Capulet family — Juliet’s wedding! I am her father. She will do as I

Paris was very happy because he loved Juliet. Lord Capulet told his wife
to see Juliet in the morning. She must prepare for her marriage. Her
parents did not know that Juliet was already married to Romeo, the
killer of her cousin Tybalt.

‘I wish it was Thursday tomorrow,’ said Paris.

‘Well, goodbye until then,’ said Lord Capulet. ‘On Thursday, my daughter
will marry you. I promise.’

In the morning, Romeo left Juliet. He had to escape to Mantua before the
Prince found him.

‘Must you go?’ asked Juliet. ‘It is still night. The nightingale is

not the lark .’

‘Look at the sky. The sun is rising. But I want to stay.’

‘Go. It is dangerous for you here. But I want you to stay. Goodbye,
sweet Romeo. Will I ever see you again?’

‘Goodbye. I will think of you every second of the day.’

They kissed. Then Romeo climbed down the ladder.

‘I can see only bad luck in the future,’ said Juliet. ‘I seem to see you

‘Our sadness makes us think in this way. I will write every day.

‘Please, God, send him back to me again.’

Part Five: My Lady’s Dead!

Early next morning, Lady Capulet visited Juliet in her bedroom.

are you awake?’

‘It is very early. I am not well,’ answered Juliet.

‘Are you still crying for your cousin Tybalt? It is good to cry. But now
it is time to stop.’

‘Let me cry more for my poor cousin.’

‘Well, really you should cry because Romeo, his killer, is still alive.’

‘Yes, mother. I wish I could see Romeo now and … kill him.’

‘I will send a servant to Mantua to poison him,’ promised Lady Capulet.
‘He will not live long. But Juliet, I have good news for you. You will
get married to Paris early next Thursday morning. Then you will be

‘No, mother. It is impossible. I don’t want to get married so soon. Tell
my father this. As you know, I hate Romeo. He has killed my cousin. But
I’d rather marry Romeo than Paris.’

‘Here comes your father. Tell him yourself.’

‘What?’ said Lord Capulet. ‘Are you still crying? Wife, have you told
her the news?’

‘Yes. The little fool thanks you but she won’t marry Paris.’

Lord Capulet was very angry. ‘Lord Paris is a very fine gentleman. This
is a great opportunity.’

‘Thank you, father, but I will not marry him.’

‘Are you too proud to marry him? Put on a wedding dress next Thursday
and go with Paris to the church. If you don’t, I’ll pull you there by
the hair.’

‘Good father, listen to me.’

‘Don’t argue with me. Go to the church next Thursday. I’m glad we have
no more children like this.’

‘Please don’t be angry with my little Juliet, sir,’ said the Nurse.

‘Shut up, you fat old fool!’

‘Be calm,’ Lady Capulet told him.

‘I have decided. If you don’t obey me , I will throw you out in the

When her parents had gone, Juliet asked the Nurse for advice .

‘I already have a husband that I love. What should I do?’

‘Well, Romeo is not here. Paris is a fine gentleman, it’s true. He is
more handsome than Romeo. Forget Romeo and marry Paris.’

‘Do you speak from your heart?’

‘Of course,’ said the Nurse.

Juliet realised that she could not trust the Nurse.

She went to Friar Laurence to ask his advice.

The Friar was very worried. Paris was talking to him and had told him
that he would marry Juliet.

‘Does she love you?’ asked the Friar.

‘I don’t know. We haven’t talked about love because she is weeping for
her cousin’s death. But our marriage will make her happy again.’

‘But look, here comes Juliet.’

‘Welcome, my lady and my wife,’ said Paris. ‘Have you come to tell the
Friar that you love me?’

‘I cannot answer that,’ said Juliet. ‘But please, let me talk to the
Friar privately.’

When they were alone, the Friar told Juliet to be happy. ‘If you are
brave enough, I have a plan that will help you and Romeo. You will be
together again.’

‘What must I do? I will do anything for Romeo, my husband.’

‘Go home and agree to marry Paris.’

‘No! I cannot.’

‘Listen carefully. On Wednesday night, go to your bedroom alone. Take
this bottle and drink the liquid. It is a special potion . You will
sleep for forty-

two hours. Your family will think that you are dead. They will carry you
to the tomb of the Capulets. Meanwhile, I will send a message to Romeo.
He will come secretly to the tomb. When you wake up, you can escape

Are you brave enough to do this, Juliet?’

‘Give me the bottle, Friar. Love will give me strength.’

Juliet went home. Lord and Lady Capulet were very happy when she told
them that she had met Paris at Friar Laurence’s cell and that she would
marry him.

‘Now I am going to my room to pray. Do not come with me, Nurse, I want
to be alone.’

In her room, Juliet looked at the bottle of mysterious liquid which
Friar Laurence had given her.

‘I am afraid. Perhaps it is poison. Or perhaps I will wake in the tomb
and Romeo will not be there. I will be alone in the middle of all the
dead bodies with my dead cousin, Tybalt. It will be terrible.’

Bravely , Juliet picked up the bottle and raised it to her lips.

‘Romeo, Romeo, I drink to you!’

She drank. She fell on the bed and slept.

The next morning, it was Thursday. The Nurse came to wake her up for her
marriage. ‘You lazy girl,’ she said. ‘You mustn’t lie in bed on your
wedding day… Help! Help! My lady’s dead!’

Lord and Lady Capulet ran to their daughter’s room.

‘She’s dead, she’s dead, she’s dead,’ cried Lady Capulet.

‘Her body is cold. I cannot speak,’ said Lord Capulet.

At that moment, Paris and Friar Laurence entered the house.

‘Is Juliet ready to go to the church?’ asked the Friar.

‘Oh Paris,’ said Lord Capulet, ‘death has taken your wife.’

The Nurse began to cry.

‘O terrible day! O sad day! O horrible day! There has never been such a
black day. O sad day! O unhappy day!’

‘Do not be sad,’ said the Friar. ‘Juliet is in Heaven. She is happier
there than when she was alive.’

‘The wedding must become a funeral ,’ I said Lord Capulet.

‘Tell the musicians to play sad tunes . Put the wedding flowers on my
daughter’s body.’

Lord and Lady Capulet took Juliet to the tomb of the Capulets.

The Nurse, Lord Paris and Friar Laurence followed her body.

The Friar was the only one who knew the secret — Juliet was alive. He
was thinking: ‘I have sent Friar John to Mantua to tell Romeo to come
back to Verona. He will be here when Juliet wakes up.’

A Brief Introduction of Chapter 1 Before Breakfast

One day in the morning,Fern, a little girl at an age of 8, was ready
to have breakfast when she saw her Papa going out with an ax.

She was wondered about it.

Her mom told her that some pigs were born
last night and one of the pigs is a runt who is very small and weak, and
it would never amount to anything. So her father had decided to do
away with it, that is, to kill it.

After knowing that,Fern felt it was unfair to kill the little pig just
because he was smaller than the others.

Therefore, she ran after his father out to prevent him from killing the

  2.B) She wanted to honor her father‘s promise。

Conversations between Fern and her father.

“Please don’t kill it!” Fern sobbed. “It’s unfair.”

Mr. Arable stopped walking. “Fer,” he said gently, “you will have to
learn to control yourself.”

“Control myself?” yelled Fern. “This is a matter of life and death,
and you talk about controlling myself
.” Tears ran down her cheeks
and she took hold of the ax and tried to pull it out of her father’s

“Fern,” said Mr. Arable, “I know more about raising a litter of pigs
than you do. A weakling makes trouble.Now run along!”

“But it’s unfair,” cried Fern.“The pig couldn’t help being born
small, could it? If I had been very small at birth, would you have
killed me?”

Mr. Arable smiled. “Certainly not,” he said, looking down at his
daughter with love. “But this is different. A little girl is one
thing, a little runty pig is another.”

I see no difference,” replied Fern, still hanging on to the
ax.“This is the most terrible case of injustice I ever heard of.”

A queer look came over John Arable’s face. He seemed almost ready
to cry himself. “All right,” he said.”You go back to the house and I
will bring the runt when I come in. I’ll let you start it on a bottle,
like a baby. Then you’ll see what trouble a pig can be.”

“He’s yours,” said Mr. Arable. “Saved from an untimely death. And may
the good Lord forgive me for this foolishness.”

Finally, Fern successfully talked her father into not to kill the little

To Mr. Arable(an experienced pig raiser), A pig is just a pig. It
means nothing to him. Especially, a small and weak one, which was really
a trouble. If not to kill it, it would take him much energy to look
after it. As a result, the best and simplest way was to kill it.

However, from Fern’s point of view,it was quite different.
Everything has their lives even though a pig. To kill a pig who was
born smaller than others was the most unjust thing she had ever heard
The pig couldn’t help being born small. It was not his fault. He
shouldn’t sacrifice for it.

The words she said to her father actually moved me a lot, especially
this one “if I had been very small at birth, would you have killed me?”

Fern is a kind hearted girl, who loves animals and treats them as
her friends; she is a brave girl, who dares to fight against her
father; she is alsoa clever girl, who persuades her father by
wisdoms not by tears.

  3.B) Several cases of Zika disease had been identified。

Conversation between Avery and their father.

Avery, Fern’s elder brother, loved Fern’s pig and also begged their
father for one.

“Can I have a pig, too, Pop?” asked Avery.

“No, I only distribute pigs to early risers,” said Mr. Arable. “Fern
was up at daylight, trying to rid world of injustice.
As a result,
she now has a pig. A small one, to be sure, but nevertheless a
pig.It just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed

What Fern’s father said causes me to think deeply about getting up

There was no doubt that if Fern wasn’ t an early riser, then the pig
would die on that morning. Fortunately, he was a lucky pig.

Try to be an early riser, you may not save somebody’s life, but at least
you can change yourself, to be healthier, to lengthen your days to a
certain degree, and the most important, to make yourself better.

  A Message in a bottle sent out to sea by a New Hampshire man more
than five decades ago was found 1,500 miles away and has been returned
to his daughter。 The long lost message was discovered by Clint
Buffington of Utah while he was vacationing。 Buffington says he found a
soda bottle half buried in the sand that looked like it had been there
since the beginning of time。 The note inside the bottles said, “return
to 419 Ocean Street and receive a reward of $150 from Richard and Tina
Pierce, owners of the Beach comber motel。” The motel was owned by the
parents of Paula Pierce in 1960。 Her father had written the note as a
joke and had thrown it into the Atlantic Ocean。 Buffington flew to New
Hampshire to deliver the message to Paula Pierce。 She held up to her
father‘s promise giving Buffington that reward, but the biggest reward
is the message in a bottle finding its way back home。

  Millions of bees have died in South Carolina during aerial insect
spraying operations that were carried out to combat the Zika virus。 The
insect spraying over the weekend left more than 2 million bees dead on
the spot in Dorchester County South Carolina, where four travel-related
cases of Zika disease have been confirmed in the area。 Most of the
deaths came from flower town bee farm, a company in Summerville that
sells bees and honey products。 Juanita Stanley who owns the company
said the farm looks like it‘s been destroyed, the farm lost about 2.5
million bees。 Dorchester County officials apologized for the accidental
mass killing of bees。 Dorchester County is aware that some beekeepers
in the area that was sprayed on Sunday lost their bee colonies。 County
Manager Jason Ward said in a statement: I’m not pleased that so many
