Abstract:

No modern literary guru in the UK has ever buried themselves in books. Instead, they attend numerous parties or banquets. Question: How can they achieve so much? Answer: They team up and it’s the esprit de corps that boosts their research level. Trough endless colloquy, one may dig out treasures from a bunch of great minds. This is the scheme behind?“a fulcrum to prop up the Earth”.

Our speaker will unravel the mystery of why great minds don’t come alone through analysis of several thought provoking issues, including but not limited to lead runner and the rest of contestants, models effect, Chinese golden era in the 30s, T.S. Eliot and E. Pound as well as other controversial issues centering around Chinese culture icons.
