Students will select a passage (no shorter than 250 Chinese characters) from any of the texts introduced in class and conduct a close grammatical and textual analysis through annotating and translating the text. While references to existing translations are allowed, blindly following them is to be avoided. Any critiques and corrections should be noted and incorporated into the report.
