Gwendolyn Brooks was the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize for Literature. Gwendolyn Brooks wrote hundreds of poems during her lifetime. She was known around the world for using poetry to increase understanding about black culture in America.

Her poems described conditions among the poor, racial inequality and drug use in the black community. She also wrote poems about the struggles of black women. But her skill was more than her ability to write about struggling black people. She was an expert at the language of poetry. She combined traditional European poetry styles with the African American experience.

In her early poetry, Gwendolyn Brooks wrote about the South Side of Chicago. The South Side of Chicago is where many black people live. In her poems, the South Side is called Bronzeville. It was “A Street in Bronzeville” that gained the attention of literary experts in 1945. Critics praised her poetic skill and her powerful descriptions of the black experience during the time. The Bronzeville poems were her first published collection.

In 1950, Gwendolyn Brooks became the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. She won the prize for her second book of poems called “Annie Allen.” “Annie Allen” is a collection of poetry about the life of a Bronzeville girl as a daughter, a wife and mother. She experiences loneliness, loss, death and being poor. Ms. Brooks said that winning the prize changed her life.

Her next work was a novel written in 1953 called “Maud Martha.” “Maud Martha” received little notice when it was first published. But now it is considered an important work by some critics. Its main ideas about the difficult life of many women are popular among female writers today.

In some of her poems, Gwendolyn Brooks described how what people see in life is affected by who they are. One example is this poem, “Corners on the Curing Sky”.

By the end of the 1960s, Gwendolyn Brooks’s poetry expanded from the everyday experiences of people in Bronzeville. She wrote about a wider world and dealt with important political issues.

Welcome to the James Joyce Centre

The James Joyce Centre is to promote an understanding of the life and works of James Joyce. In doing so, the Centre tries to work with institutions to celebrate Ireland’s rich cultural heritage (遗产). The James Joyce Centre provides the casual visitor with a rewarding and memorable experience.

The Centre’s home is a restored 18th century townhouse in the north of Dublin, the city of Joyce’s birth and the setting for all his works. From this central place in Joyce’s heartland, the Centre aims to develop an appreciation of this most remarkable and significant literary figure of the 20th century.

No. 35 North Great George’s Street was built in 1784 and decorated with fine plasterwork (灰泥) by Michael Stapleton. The house was restored in the 1980s and opened as the James Joyce Centre in 1996, run by members of Joyce’s sister’s family.

The Kenmare Room is used for lectures and has a small show of reproductions of Joyce family pictures. In addition, this room provides details of Joyce’s life and times, a reading table where visitors can sit and read works by and about Joyce, and a show of some of the many translations of Joyce’s works.


The centre’s permanent and temporary exhibitions show various aspects of Joyce’s life and work. Through shows and three films, you may dig into the novel about its historical background and learn more about Joyce’s life. The Centre also hosts International Joyce, an exhibition that provides a wonderful introduction to the life and works of James Joyce.

According to the Global Times, it is reported that two online videos showing children telling their parents “I love you” have gone viral in China. The first, filmed by an Anhui TV station, shows a number of college students telling their parents they love them. The responses are mixed. “Are you drunk?” asked one parent. In another similar video, shot by a Shanxi TV station, a father responded even less patiently — “I am going to a meeting, so cut the crap.”

Why don't Chinese families use those words? Theories revolve around the nature of Confucian teaching. “The parents' responses show that many Chinese are not good at expressing positive emotions,” Xia Xueluan, a Sociologist from Peking University, told the Global Times. “They are used to educating children with negative language.”

This isn't the first time that China has done some soul-searching about familial love — last year China Daily asked a cross-section of people if they said “I love you” to their parents, spouses, and children. “I have never said 'I love you' to my family, and I don't think I will in the future,” one 56-year-old told the paper. “Saying it aloud is embarrassing for me.”

Still, that doesn't mean that love can't be expressed. In a separate article, China Daily spoke to Zhao Mengmeng, a 31-year-old woman who said she had never told her father she loved him face-to-face (“I find it a bit odd”). Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Zhao gave her father a photo album featuring photographs of them together on almost every one of her birthdays in June 2012. The pictures went viral online, being forwarded hundreds of thousands of times on Weibo.

“I didn't sleep the night I heard about it,” her father told China Daily after the story attracted mainstream attention. “I have now memorized some of the comments on the collection of pictures.”


28. What can we infer from the text?

AIt is not direct for Chinese families to say “I love you” .

BChinese parents are too proud to express “I love you”.

CChinese parents are good at expressing positive emotions.

DYoung parents in China are willing to express “I love you”.

29. Why don’t Chinese parents express “I love you” to their children?

ABecause they can’t express it.

BBecause they are not in the habit of expressing so.

CBecause they think it unnecessary.

DBecause they think it should be done only among young couples.

30. Zhao Mengmeng expressed “I love you” to her father by ______.

Agiving him an album containing their photos

Bkissing her father’s face and telling him by words

Cspeaking it out bravely in a TV program

Dwriting out the three words in a letter

31.What’s the author’s attitude towards the statements about “I love you”?

Almost everyone stood when the bride walked down the aisle in her white gown, but not the wedding conductor, because she was fixed to her chair.

The nuptials at this ceremony were led by “I-Fairy”, a 4-foot (1.5-meter) tall seated robot with flashing eyes and plastic pigtails (辫子). Sunday's wedding was the first time that a marriage had been led by a robot, according to manufacturer Kokoro Co.

“ Please lift the bride's veil (面纱),” the robot said in a tinny voice, waving its arms in the air as the newlyweds kissed in front of about 50 guests.

The wedding took place at a restaurant in Hibiya Park in central Tokyo, where the I-Fairy wore a wreath of flowers and directed a rooftop ceremony. Wires led out from beneath it to a black curtain a few feet away, where a man clicked commands into a computer.

Japan has one of the most advanced robotics industries in the world, with the government actively supporting the field for future growth. Industrial models in factories are now standard, but recently Japanese companies are making a push to inject robots into everyday life.

Honda makes a walking child-shaped robot, and other firms have developed them to entertain the elderly or play baseball. Kokoro, whose corporate goal is to “ touch the hearts of the people,” also makes giant dinosaur robots for exhibitions and life-like android models that can smile and laugh. The company is a subsidiary (附属公司) of Sanrio Co., which owns the rights to Hello Kitty and other Japanese characters.

“This was a lot of fun. I think that Japanese have a strong sense that robots are our friends. Those in the robot industry mostly understand this, but people mainly want robots near them that serve some purpose,” said bride Satoko Inoue, 36, who works at manufacturer Kokoro Co.

The I-Fairy sells for about 6.3 million yen ($ 68,000) and three are in use in Singapore, the US and Japan, according to company spokeswoman Kayako Kido.


32. The underlined word “nuptials” in paragraph 2 can best be placed by ________.





33. The robots made in Japan can do the following EXCEPT ________.

Aentertain the senior people

Bplay baseball

Clook after children


34. What can we learn from what bride Satoko Inoue said?

AA robot has been widely used to serve the people in Japan.

BIt’s very interesting to work with a robot in her company.

CJapanese consider a robot can do many things like their friends.

DPeople need robots that can help them in some ways.

35.Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?

AI-Fairy, a robot conducts wedding in Tokyo

BThe development of robots

CAll kinds of robots in Japan

DWedding customs in Japan
