I compared pages 22-24 of the novel Red Scarf Girl, written by Ji Li Jiang, with an article from the book China’s Cultural Revolution, called Red Guards Smash the Four Olds. The two articles that I picked were both mainly about Smashing the Four Olds, but it touched on the major turning points such as, “The End of the Revolution.” Although the subject was the same, the non-fiction article stated more in-depth information about specific actions taken to destroy the Four Olds. To conclude, through all the analysis of the text, the two passages have many similarities, but much more differences. Overall, “Red Scarf Girl” was still written to mainly tell a story, while “China’s Cultural Revolution” was written to give information to the reader.
