Mansfield’s outstanding contribution to literature lies in her innovation in the realm of short stories, and she is widely recognized as one of the finest short story writers in the history of English literature. <em>Miss Brill</em> is one such masterpiece, depicting the story of Miss Brill as she dresses neatly and goes to the park on a Sunday, sitting on a bench and observing the people passing by, listening to their conversations and the band playing. She imagines herself as a part of their world, but her illusions are shattered by a young couple, and she returns home, disheartened, to what feels like a cupboard of a home. This short story exemplifies the artistic techniques in Mansfield's storytelling, with one of the prominent features being the charm emanating from the stylistic choices in her works. Literary stylistics is concerned with the language features of literary works, exploring how authors use language to express the themes of their works and enhance their aesthetic value. This paper will delve into literary stylistics, focusing on the text of the short story <em>Miss Brill</em>, examining its lexical features, grammatical features, and figures of speech to explore how Mansfield uses specific language choices to convey and enhance the thematic significance and aesthetic effects of her work.</p> 2024-02-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pacific International Journal https://rclss.com/pij/article/view/493 An Effectiveness Evaluation on Critical Thinking Exercises in Chinese College English Textbooks 2023-10-23T09:25:28+00:00 hui lyu heidi_lv@163.com <p>Cultivating students’ critical thinking has long been the consensus reached by the international education circle and a common goal of international higher education reform.

The objective is to deter inequitable conditions and transactions in civil exchanges, guaranteeing that contractual parties participate in commerce founded on principles of equity and free will. This paper examines the fundamental components of unjust legal actions as outlined in the Chinese Civil Code. It investigates how these elements are applied and evolved in legal practice, and draws comparisons with similar legal systems worldwide, particularly the approaches taken in Germany and France. The aim is to offer insights that can contribute to enhancing the Chinese legal system. Hence, the study suggests practical uses for the fundamental components of unjust legal activities, such as improving the objective factors, broadening the subjective factors, and incorporating the dynamic system theory to tackle identification challenges in the field of judiciary. The suggestions propose the creation of a precise and adaptable legal framework to quantify unequal exchanges and consider transactional backgrounds as objective factors. They also recommend expanding three subjective elements: "a notable deficiency in the determination of the party", "manipulation by the party in power" and "violation of the genuine intention of the party". Additionally, they suggest managing the relationship between the constitutive conditions of unfairness in a flexible manner based on the specific circumstances of each case. These measures aim to achieve judicial fairness and improve judicial efficiency.</p> 2024-02-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Pacific International Journal https://rclss.com/pij/article/view/547 The Comparison of the English Versions of Poem Lu Zhai 2023-12-12T09:50:12+00:00 Xuefei Zhao 835052252@qq.com <div><span lang="EN-US">Chinese classical poetry, as a treasure of Chinese culture, has always attracted numerous translators.
