About This Book
Journey to the West, Originally published anonymously in the 1590s during the Ming Dynasty, is a Chinese classical novel that remains highly popular even to this day. The work is also known as Monkey from the title of a popular, abridged translation by Arthur Waley, and is considered one of the Four Classical Novels of Chinese literature.
Part of the novel's enduring popularity comes from the fact that it works on multiple levels: it is an adventure story, a dispenser of spiritual insight, and an extended metaphor in which the group of pilgrims journeying toward India stands for the individual journeying toward enlightenment. It also has much poetry and wordplay.
This is a comic book edition of this classic saga, adapted and illustrated by the late, respected Korean cartoonist, Woo Young Ko.
