Professor Han's report explores the profound influence of Shakespeare's plays on Chinese contemporary literature from the similarity of the inner plot structure between Chinese contemporary online novel "How to Silence" and Shakespeare's drama "Romeo and Juliet". The report uses a keen academic vision, uses comparative literature to influence research methods, cuts into network literature research from the perspective of feminism, and discovers and analyzes that some contemporary Chinese online literature selectively accepts the influence of Shakespeare and abandons its humanistic connotation. The intrinsic demand of popular culture infiltrates the stereotypical concept of patriarchy, thus reflecting the real anxiety of young women in contemporary China. And the only solution to the deviation of the values reflected in this literary works is the harmonious symbiosis between men and women in reality.
In the Q&A session, Professor Han shared the creative process of his thesis with the teachers, and used the intertextuality theory of literary field theory and literature to answer the qualitative research method of the paper proposed by teachers and students. The problem of research and the relationship between the convergence of the structure of literary works and the influence of the work of a particular author.
