My favorite writer is Lao She. The reason why I like him is "four generations in one hall".

我最喜欢的文学家是老舍,我很喜欢上他的缘故是《四世同堂》这本书。


The reason why we bought this book at the beginning was only that the teacher asked us to buy it. At that time, it was more interesting to read the brief introduction of this book, so I bought it.

最初买这本书的缘故只是是,教师规定大家买的。那时候仅仅看这本书的介绍较为有趣,我也买来。


At the beginning, I turned one or two times and didn't read it. But later, I was so bored that I opened the book with a casual attitude. But when I opened the book, I became addicted to it. I forgot to eat and sleep, and finally finished.

最初的情况下,我也翻了一两下就沒有看过,但之后是我一段时间太无聊,我也怀着随便看的心态,打开了这本书。但我翻开这本书后,我便迷恋这本书难以自拔了。我夜以继日地看,也总算看完了。


This book has a great influence on me. When I learned that the author of this book was Lao She, I began to understand Lao she slowly. After I got to know Lao She, I gradually fell in love with him. The old Beijing he described also made me yearn for it. I also gradually found a trace of him in some of his books. As a writer, Lao She was in such a difficult time in troubled times. In 1966, such a great writer was persecuted in the cultural revolution and died of suicide by jumping into the lake. It was not until the book "four generations in the same hall" was published in 1978 that Mr. Lao She was rehabilitated.

这本书一件事的危害非常大,在我掌握到这本书的作者是老舍的情况下,我便逐渐渐渐地去掌握老舍了。在我慢慢掌握老舍后,我逐渐喜爱到了老舍,他叙述中的北京老字号,也令我极其憧憬。因为我逐渐从他的一些书里,找到一丝他的影子,也看到了做为一个作家,老舍处在那般的雄霸九州的艰辛,那样杰出的文学家,在一九六六年,也最后由于文革中受残害而跳湖自尽而死。直至《四世同堂》这本书在一九七八年发版之后,老舍先生也才被获得翻案。


On the tombstone of Mr. Lao She is engraved a sentence of Lao She: "conscientious pawns in the literary and artistic circles sleep here." It can also be seen that Mr. Lao she lived and died for literature in his life.

老舍先生的墓牌上镌刻着老舍的一句话:“文艺圈尽职的卒子,睡在这儿。”也由此可见,老舍先生这一生为文学类为之,为文学类而死。
