    In the depth of Autumn

    "In the depth of Autumn, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. "


    Hi,
    I ran across the above on the Internet. Is "in the depth of Autumn" equal to "late autumn?" Thanks.

    Re: In the depth of Autumn

    I would take it to mean right in the middle of autumn, the point at which autumn is at its most ... autumnal!

    ...but goodness knows what the original sentence is supposed to mean.

    Oh, I quite liked it. I took it to mean that someone has found the ability to always be happy (an invincible summer) even when they are in the middle of a less happy time of their life (season).

    Re: In the depth of Autumn

    LewisJian, I think 'In the depth of Autumn' means the same as 在深秋 in your native language.
