“In 1983, Anthony C. Yu’s The Journey to the West conveyed intact to readers of English the classic that had enthralled Chinese children for centuries. It taught scholars that the novel’s many poems were as important as its prose. This new version draws on thirty years of the author’s further studies in literature and religion. It traces one theme after another to the Quanzhen Daoist movement and its new synthesis of religious thought. The translation is a joy to read, and the introduction and commentary reveal the deep foundations on which this fantastic tale of adventure is built.”
