Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Journey to the West, volume 4, comprises the last twenty-five chapters of Anthony C. Yu's four-volume translation of Hsi-yu Chi, one of the most beloved classics of Chinese literature. The fantastic tale recounts the sixteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Hsüan-tsang (596-664), one of China's most illustrious religious heroes, who journeyed to India with four animal disciples in quest of Buddhist scriptures. For nearly a thousand years, his exploits were celebrated and embellished in various accounts, culminating in the hundred-chapter Journey to the West, which combines religious allegory with romance, fantasy, humor, and satire.

About the Author

Anthony C. Yu is Carl Darling Buck Distinguished Service Professor in the Humanities; chairman and professor in the department of East Asian languages and civilizations; professor in the Committee on Social Thought; and professor of English language and literature, and comparative literature in the Divinty School at the University of Chicago.
