Aping a Beauty 东施效颦

来源:英语阅读 编辑:英语学习 时间:2017-05-29

Xi Shi, a famous beauty, had a pain in her bosom(胸部) , so she had a frown(皱眉) on her face when she went out. An ugly girl who lived nearby saw her and thought she looked very beautiful. Therefore when she went home, she also put her hands on her bosom and had a frown on her face.

When a rich man in the neighbourhood saw her, he shut his doors tightly and did not go out. When a poor man saw her, he took his wife and children and gave her a wide berth(保持安全距离) .

She only knew Xi Shi's frown looked beautiful but she did not know the reason for its beauty.
