Alle productspecificaties Samenvatting Anthony C. Yu's celebrated translation of The Journey to the West reinvigorated one of Chinese literature's most beloved classics for English-speaking audiences when it first appeared thirty years ago. Yu's abridgment of his four-volume translation, The Monkey and the Monk, finally distills the epic novel's most exciting and meaningful episodes without taking anything away from their true spirit. These fantastic episodes recount the adventures of Xuanzang, a seventh-century monk who became one of China's most illustrious religious heroes after traveling for sixteen years in search of Buddhist scriptures. Powerfully combining religious allegory with humor, fantasy, and satire, accounts of Xuanzang's journey were passed down for a millennium before culminating in the sixteenth century with The Journey to the West. Now, readers of The Monkey and the Monk can experience the full force of his lengthy quest as he travels to India with four animal disciples, most significant among them a guardian-monkey known as "the Great Sage, Equal to Heaven. It establishes beyond contention the position of The Journey to the West in world literature, while at the same time throwing open wide the doors to interpretive study on the part of the English audience. One of the greatest ventures of our time in humanistic translation and publication. A new translation of a major literary text which totally supersedes the best existing version. This is a deftly streamlined version of Anthony Yu's complete translation of the famous Ming dynasty novel The Journey to the West. The Monkey and the Monk offers a generous selection of carefully chosen chapters, preserving the essential outlines of the story and including all of the main characters who are familiar to young and old alike in China: the monk, the monkey, the white horse, the pig, and the sand-spirit.

Although some of Xuanzang's predicaments are political and involve ordinary human beings, they more frequently consist of run-ins with various demons, many of whom turn out to be earthly manifestations of heavenly beings whose sins will be negated by eating the flesh of Xuanzang or animal-spirits with enough Taoist spiritual merit to assume semi-human forms.

He appears right away in chapter The most intelligent and violent of the disciples, he is constantly reproved for his violence by Xuanzang. Ultimately, he can only be controlled by a magic gold ring that Guanyin has placed around his head, which causes him unbearable headaches when Xuanzang chants the Ring Tightening Mantra.

A reliable fighter, he is characterised by his insatiable appetites for food and women, and is constantly looking for a way out of his duties that causes significant conflict with Sun Wukong. He is a quiet but generally dependable and hard-working character who serves as the straight foil to the comic relief of Sun and Zhu.

He was saved by Guanyin from execution to stay and wait for his call of duty.

He appears first in chapter 15 but has almost no speaking role as throughout the story he mainly appears as a horse that Xuanzang rides on. Part IV Chapter The return journey to the Tang Empire and the aftermath in which each traveller receives a reward in the form of posts in the bureaucracy of the heavens.
