The Royal Shakespeare Company is to translate the entire works of the Bard into Mandarin as part of efforts to foster greater cultural ties with China.
Cultures at a constant war.
No one can understand the other.
We just make sounds and agree on what they mean.

Do you need literature to make someone see your self?
Can the essence of things be described in any words?
Chinese, English or Greek, it is the silence between words which provides the meaning.
Everything else is just toothpaste.
