Response to "An incident"
I just read a short story, "An Incident," by Lu Hsun, and I am very impress by it because it teaches a reader a lesson. I understand how you don't judge a person on how they act, because there's a side that you don't know or havn't seen.
One line from "An incident" that stands out for me is: "It often causes me distress, and makes me try to think about myself." I think this is understnadable because when you do something and regrets it. You feel wierd and distress and starts blaming on yourself. This happens a lot in my life. I do something and wish I have never done it, but when you know it, its too late. So, take a second thought before you make a decision.
Another line that I like was:"... teaching me shame, urging me to reform, and giving me fresh courage and hope." This is kind of similar to the previous quote. It stood out for me because everyone make mistakes and can always make up for it.
"An Incident" reminds me of somethign that happened to me. One time when I was arguing with my sisters over a little thing. and at the end I realize it was my fault. so I felt so bad, but I didnt want to say sorry because I still dont it was all my fault. Time passes and we all forget about it. but everytime when we have a argument it always reminds me of it.
I would like to read more stories by Lu Hsun, because it teaches a lesson and its short.
