Every year, the world is keeping their eyes on the Nobel Prize in literature, the winner will gain the fame and fortune and making his writing career reach the top. Chinese culture has more than 5 thousand years’ history and there are many great works that famous around the world. So why Chinese writers have such a long way to win the Nobel Prize. The most obvious factor is the language. English as the international language is accepted by the world and Chinese great works need to be translated into English, so as to be read by the judges. But the bad thing is that during the translation, the artistic conception has loss in some way and only the main meaning is left. So we don’t need to question about our literature, it is excellent and some day the world will see it.
