- Lin Yutang, William Shakespeare, four life periods, the fool, inspiration
Careful research shows that Lin Yutang’s concept of four life periods is inspired from works of Shakespeare, and his creation of the fool can be a modified version of that of Shakespeare. It is clear that Shakespeare has an enormous influence on him, and humanism serves as the foundation for Lin Yutang to learn so much from the world giant. To understand Lin Yutang’s inspiration source can be of significance in accelerating the process of spreading Chinese culture to the world in this modern time.
