Monkey Summary


Monkey by Wu Ch'eng-En

Prince Tripitaka, a young Buddhist priest, has undertaken a dangerous quest to travel to India to retrieve sacred scriptures from a temple. On his way he finds three unruly companions who become his disciples: the greedy pig creature Pigsy, the river monster Sandy - and Monkey. Hatched from a stone egg and given the secrets of immortality, the mischievous trickster Monkey can fly through the air, ride on clouds, become invisible and transform himself into other shapes. And these skills prove very handy when the four travellers come up against the dragons, bandits, demons and evil wizards that seem determined to get in their way.

About Wu Ch'eng-En


Very little is known about Wu Ch-eng-en (c. 1505-80) although he is believed to have held the post of District Magistrate for a time. He had a reputation as a good poet but only a few rather commonplace verses of his survive in an anthology of Ming poetry and in a local gazetteer.
