"The (local) works provide not only a wealth of literary techniques and devices for study, but also a reservoir of rich local historical and cultural heritage for reflection. "

"Classics like Teahouse or those by Shakespeare... It's not that you shouldn't study them, but the context, language and topics are very remote from us.

"With our nation's coming of age, we are figuring out who we are.....We are no longer immigrants, so it's time for us to ask ourselves what we are."

Relate on qns about the value of studying literature and the arts.

1. To what extent should the arts in your society focus on local rather than foreign talent? (Cam. 2015)
2.‘For the majority of people, the Arts are irrelevant to their daily lives.’ How true is this of your society? (Cam. 2014)
