1.Why did Lu Xun give up his study of medicine in Japan? When Lu Xun was in Japan studying medicine, it was during the war time, his class was showing a video about how Japanese killed Chinese and there were many Chinese peoplewho were being spectators did nothing to help that people who was be killing by Japanese, and Lu Xun could tell that curiosity, and numb were full of spectators’ face. He felt that medicine could just save people’s body instead of their spirit. China need to wakeup and he wanted to use literature to wake Chinese people’s spirit and save China in danger.2.Do you agree with Mao Zedong's assessment of Lu Xun as "a hero without parallel in [China's] history...China's greatest revolutionary"? Why or why not? Use at least one specific example from the documentary and your experience reading Lu Xun's writings to explain.I agree with this assessment, because at the time China still didn’t have the right of speech freedom, so Lu Xun was the only one who can just stood up and use refined language to write articles in order to wake Chinese people’s spirit, which is very respectful and dauntless. Plus, his articles and novels are dramatically described how sickthe China’s situation was, they way he used to write was so sarcastically and powerfully criticized Chinese people’s weakness. He was like the one who let people realize that it’s time to fight for their lives and a ‘leader’ who lead to a real revolution.
