Sharing bibliographic introduction:

Journey to the West

One of the four classic Chinese classics is the first romantic novel of the ancient Chinese novel written by Wu Chengen, a novelist of the Ming Dynasty. The plot is complicated and far from being as simple as described in the TV series. Through the original text we can answer some questions:

How strong is Sun Wukong? Why is it so weak on the road to getting through, always being stumped by various monsters?
Why did Tang Zhen want to learn from the West?
What is the relationship between Jade Emperor, Laojun and Ruyi?
What is the identity of the six-eared macaque?
Who is the Bodhi ancestor?

An outstanding novelist of the Ming Dynasty in China, with one of the four classic Chinese classics, "Journey to the West", was translated into Esperanto. Wu Chengen was rich in his life, but his family was poor and had no children. His works were lost. According to the record, there is also a collection of mysterious novels, "Ding Ding Ji", which has been lost.

Later generations compiled their poems into "The Record of Mr. Sheyang."
