We see Yu Jie’s words on Brown Duck are just 600 Chinese characters, about 300 English words if translated into English, and there is even a thread in it that whether the Brown Duck needs to be cut, which keeps the reader’s interest. Generally speaking, 300 English words is just the length for junior high students and it does not need a thread. Only works over 1,500 English words needs a thread. And Yu Jie arranges thread in such short story as well, keeping the reader interested. It is all right to say that he is one of four top writers in China since 1949. Who are the other three? I don’t know and leave that to the audience to comment.
The next should be the third kind of duck. Before it, Yu Jie puts down a paragraph on the feelings on the teahouse and restaurant in Shaoxing, and lets the reader’s stomach to have a rest. Otherwise, one would feel too much if eating three ducks in a roll.
Next is the third kind of duck Old Duck Stewed by Herb. The author’s words are mainly on the cuisine of it, [Holy Duck is usually old female duck. The duck is put into a slim earthen pot, stewed on low heat for long time, without any water or ingredients. When the duck is cooked half way through, add all kinds of ingredients, herbs, including angelica, ginseng, dates, wolfberry, aniseed. Then keep stewing until it is fully done. Then the original sauce is all kept without any loss. This is not only delicious but also nutritious.]
The above are the three kinds of duck Yu Jie describes, having three different ways to write about three different ducks. Marinated duck is mainly on the taste and the cuisine; Brown Duck is mainly on the thread of whether it needs to be cut; Old Duck Stewed by Herb is mainly on the cuisine. Using what to be the feature needs to consider both the reader and the author? What kind of information does the reader want or get interested? What kind of knowledge and feeling does the author have?
Literature and math are the same and often have different solutions. To be more general, this works well with other food as well like fish, shrimp, pork, chicken, vegetable, noodle and rice. One can describe several dishes all by the taste or all by the cuisine or even all arranging the thread.

Abstract: Since 1949 the Communist Party came into power in China, it has been robbing all people of the land, of the welfare of housing, food, education and medical care. Mao Zedong’s age has caused 80 million Chinese people to death, including 40 million starved to death between 1959 and 1962. Since 2000, every year there are 3.2 million people died abnormally, including 1 million in fighting and 2 million committing suicide. In the 2010s, on average in China, one can make about 50,000 U. S. dollars in one’s life, but the expenses for the 4 livings of housing, food, education and medical care are about 420,000 U. S. dollars, which means even one works for 8 lifetimes, one cannot make a living in China for 1 lifetime. Meanwhile, China’s environment sees debacles. Before 1949, there were 80-odd rivers within 70 miles of Beijing, but since 2000, there is not a single river visible. Over 70% of the water surface in China sees heavy pollution. From 1949 to 2010s, China’s situation can be described as “hard to survive and environment debacle.
