  • Book Description
  • Editorial Reviews

Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West ,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy.         With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible.          One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.

About the Author

Anthony C. Yu is the Carl Darling Buck Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in Humanities and Professor, The Divinity School, Departments of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, English Language and Literature, Comparative Literature, and the Committee on Social Thought, The University of Chicago.

Does Journey to the West cd key activate in my region?

We always try to make sure that price displayed in our comparison is assigned to the correct regions.

Will I be able to download Journey to the West game immediately?

All shops featured on GG.deals will deliver your game immediately after the payment has been approved. This will be either in the form of direct download or PC key - depending on the store of your choice. After you activate key on a corresponding platform, you will be able to download and play your game for free. If you don't know how to activate the key, check out the tutorials section on the bottom of the page.

Can I get a free Journey to the West Steam key? Is there a way to download Journey to the West for free?

Which Journey to the West shop to choose? What’s the difference between official stores and keyshops?

Price is not the only criteria you should bear in mind when buying pc games through GG.deals.

You will find this information on the game card in the form of a launcher icon. For example, if you want to get Journey to the West Steam key and activate it on Steam, pick the shop that has a Steam icon.
  • Choose between official stores and keyshops. Official stores retail the game keys by getting them directly through the game developer or publisher. Keyshops resell the game keys from undisclosed sources. The prices in keyshops are often cheaper than in official shops, but there are certain risks involved and purchasing through unauthorized resellers won’t support the game developers directly.

About Monkey King

*Now a Netflix animated movie featuring Stephanie Hsu, Bowen Yang, and BD Wong among the all-Asian voice cast* Before there was The Lord of the Rings, there was China’s Monkey King, one of the all-time great fantasy novels–which Neil Gaiman has said “is in the DNA of 1.5 billion people”–now published in a thrilling new one-volume translation with an illustrated foreword by the author of the New York Times bestselling graphic novel that is the basis for the Disney+ series American Born Chinese , starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu, as well as Daniel Wu as the Monkey King A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition, with flaps and deckle-edged paper A shape-shifting trickster on a kung-fu quest for eternal life, Sun Wukong, or Monkey King, is one of the most memorable superheroes in world literature, known to legions of fans of the most popular anime of all time, Dragon Ball , and the world’s largest e-sport, the video game League of Legends . High-spirited and omni-talented, he amasses dazzling weapons and skills on his journey to immortality: a gold-hooped staff that can grow as tall as the sky and shrink to the size of a needle; the ability to travel 108,000 miles in a single somersault. A master of subterfuge, he can transform himself into whomever or whatever he chooses and turn each of his body’s 84,000 hairs into an army of clones. But his penchant for mischief repeatedly gets him into trouble, and when he raids Heaven’s Orchard of Immortal Peaches and gorges himself on the elixirs of the gods, the Buddha pins him beneath a mountain, freeing him only five hundred years later for a chance to redeem himself: He is to protect the pious monk Tripitaka on his fourteen-year journey to India in search of precious Buddhist sutras that will bring enlightenment to the Chinese empire. Joined by two other fallen immortals–Pigsy, a rice-loving pig able to fly with its ears, and Sandy, a depressive man-eating river-sand monster–Monkey King undergoes eighty-one trials, doing battle with Red Boy, Princess Jade-Face, the Monstress Dowager, and all manner of dragons, ogres, wizards, and femmes fatales, navigating the perils of Fire-Cloud Cave, the River of Flowing Sand, the Water-Crystal Palace, and Casserole Mountain, and being serially captured, lacquered, sautéed, steamed, and liquefied, but always hatching an ingenious plan to get himself and his fellow pilgrims out of their latest jam. Monkey King: Journey to the West is at once a rollicking adventure, a comic satire of Chinese bureaucracy, and a spring of spiritual insight. With this new translation, the irrepressible rogue hero of one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature has the potential to vault, with his signature cloud-somersault and unerring sense for fun, into the hearts of millions of Americans.

A collectible hardcover edition of one of the all-time great fantasy novels—which Neil Gaiman has said “is in the DNA of 1.5 billion people”—in an acclaimed one-volume translation, and featuring an illustrated foreword by the author of the New York Times bestselling graphic novel that is the basis for the Disney+ series American Born Chinese , starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu A Penguin Vitae Edition Before there was The Lord of the Rings , there was China’s Monkey King .

For raiding Heaven’s Orchard of Immortal Peaches, the Buddha pins him beneath a mountain and frees him only five hundred years later.

Accompanied by two other fallen immortals—Pigsy, a rice-loving pig able to fly with its ears, and Sandy, a depressive man-eating river-sand monster—Monkey King undergoes eighty-one trials, doing battle with all manner of dragons, ogres, wizards, and femmes fatales in this rollicking adventure that not only stands as the most popular of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature but also gave us one of the most memorable superheroes in world literature.

But his penchant for mischief repeatedly gets him into trouble, and when he raids Heaven’s Orchard of Immortal Peaches and gorges himself on the elixirs of the gods, the Buddha pins him beneath a mountain, freeing him only five hundred years later for a chance to redeem himself: He is to protect the pious monk Tripitaka on his fourteen-year journey to India in search of precious Buddhist sutras that will bring enlightenment to the Chinese empire. Joined by two other fallen immortals–Pigsy, a rice-loving pig able to fly with its ears, and Sandy, a depressive man-eating river-sand monster–Monkey King undergoes eighty-one trials, doing battle with Red Boy, Princess Jade-Face, the Monstress Dowager, and all manner of dragons, ogres, wizards, and femmes fatales, navigating the perils of Fire-Cloud Cave, the River of Flowing Sand, the Water-Crystal Palace, and Casserole Mountain, and being serially captured, lacquered, sautéed, steamed, and liquefied, but always hatching an ingenious plan to get himself and his fellow pilgrims out of their latest jam. Monkey King: Journey to the West is at once a rollicking adventure, a comic satire of Chinese bureaucracy, and a spring of spiritual insight. With this new translation, the irrepressible rogue hero of one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature has the potential to vault, with his signature cloud-somersault and unerring sense for fun, into the hearts of millions of Americans.

A Fortune Best Book of the Year “A breezy, action-packed narrative . . . Rich with imaginative world-building that evokes the best Pixar films . . . The book is also quite funny . . . With this new readable version of Monkey King, Western readers will also have plenty of fun.” ― San Francisco Chronicle “A fun, accessible book that will attract readers to a text that may otherwise seem obscure and imposing . . . The jokes hit every register, from slapstick and toilet humor to dryly delivered drolleries. . . . The literary analog for the gonzo humor is Rabelais and the fight scenes are the stuff of superhero comics. But the comparison that kept coming to mind is with the irreverent, twinkling humor of Looney Tunes cartoons, with Monkey King a cross between Bugs Bunny and the Tasmanian Devil. . . . A rollicking work of high buffoonery.” ― The Wall Street Journal “Exhibit[s] a rollicking exuberance . . . [It] has long been—and will continue to be—a rewarding and enjoyable reading experience for many people.” ― The Washington Post “The best English edition of the classic Chinese fantasy novel I have ever read. If you wish to understand why Monkey King has been a fixture in Chinese popular culture for no fewer than five centuries, then look no further.” ― Minjie Chen, Los Angeles Review of Books “A vivacious delight: a genuinely very funny book is given its full due . . . Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, is as vital a figure in Chinese as Robin Hood and King Arthur are in English.” ― Foreign Policy “This accessible translation . . . allows Western readers to discover Monkey King ’s mix of spiritual transcendence, slapstick humor, and deep satire.” ― Fortune “Visit one of the greatest countries in the world through the pages of this Chinese epic [and] Julia Lovell’s new contemporary translation, with exquisite maps of ‘somewhat mythical lands.’” ― Piers Torday, The Guardian “[A] brilliant new translation . . . Vibrant . . . Lovell’s characters speak in colloquial voices, which brings them vividly to life for modern readers. Her Monkey King is accessible enough to be read with young children―not something that could necessarily be said for other translations. . . . One hopes that Julia Lovell’s wonderful 21st-century account of [Monkey King’s] adventures will bring him continued literary immortality.” ― South China Morning Post “We’re in the capable hands of a translator of our era. . . . Lovell is focused on solid, modern storytelling, not mere fealty. . . . Monkey King has contemporary currency beyond even The Wizard of Oz or The Lord of the Rings , to which works it bears more than a passing resemblance— Star Wars . . . comes to mind, along with myriad comic book and anime epics. . . . All who have loved Robin Hood , or Tolkien, or J. K. Rowling, or the superheroes [Gene Luen] Yang pings in his foreword, will find similar friends in Monkey, Tripitaka, Pigsy (the Friar Tuck of Asia) and Sandy. Thanks to Lovell’s engaging translation, it’s a fair bet that many more in the Anglophone world, especially the younger generations, will gain these friends, along with a greatly enhanced understanding of China.” ― Asian Review of Books “A translation that’s really funny . . . [It] is a delight and a tour de force. . . . There are delicious dashes of alliteration. . . . I was particularly taken with the anachronisms. They are superlatively funny.” ― Nicky Harman, Asian Books Blog “A mirthful tale of endless mischief, deception, irony and combat . . . Impish and adventurous . . . Thanks to this fresh translation . . . the adventures of superhero simian Sun Wukong are newly accessible to English readers around the world.” ― Global Asia “A joy to read . . . Monkey King . . . is the superhero kids love to fantasize about. Naughty. Ingenious. Powerful. His weapons and magic skills are amazing and delicious. With his sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and his love of life, he is irresistible. The stories flow from the book beautifully, and we can’t wait to find out what trouble Monkey gets into next, and how he gets out of it. . . . This is a fun book for a large range of ages. . . . [It] is fast paced, and the 339 pages fly by. . . . Monkey King also includes a fun map to track the lands we’ve visited in the stories, and a list of the major characters. . . . The extras, like the introduction, add fascinating details about the book’s history, and delight those of us who are curious about this great classic. . . . Asians and Asian Americans can feel good that this book represents a bright star in our cultural heritage.” ― International Examiner “I marvelled at the ingenuity, cheek and charm of Monkey King: Journey to the West by Wu Cheng’en in Julia Lovell’s lively new translation: what a book to return to!” ― Daniel Medin, The White Review , “Books of the Year” “Fantastically funny . . . [Monkey King’s] character is redemptive, his humor infectious—running the gamut from slapstick to drollery—and his journey one worth following. . . . Lovell is to be commended. . . . With a foreword by Gene Luen Yang and a delightful map by Laura Hartman Maestro, [her translation] will capture contemporary readers.” ― Mountain Times “This new translation . . . breathes fresh life, humor, wit, and charm into the 16th-century classic. . . . If you did not know that this was an abridged version . . . you never would. . . . [It] is exactly as long as it needs to be, with the fat cut and the story paced perfectly. . . . Every line of dialogue drips with sarcasm, snappy one-liners, and laugh-out-loud observations for the lovable bastard that is Monkey. . . . If you’ve ever wanted to read Journey to the West but have been put off by fears of it being too long, too dense, too dry (as we have all thought when it comes to classics), then put those fears aside. Julia Lovell’s translation is nothing but fun, frantic fantasy writing. . . . She has injected the book with energy, spice, and humor. . . . I can’t imagine having more fun than I did with Julia Lovell’s hilarious translation. . . . There is no end to the fun and joy gleaned from [it].” ― Will Heath, Books & Bao “An all-new translation of one of the greatest stories ever written . . . An out-and-out fantasy adventure that has captivated audiences and influenced creatives for centuries.” ― Bustle “Jam-packed with outrageous danger and outlandish transformations . . . Lovell does an admirable job condensing the original text . . . while capturing the essence of Chinese fantastical storytelling and parody. Readers who enjoy nutty adventures and nonsensical plots will get a kick out of this madcap fable.” ― Publishers Weekly “This new edition should more than satisfy anyone interested in reading not only a highly praised classic of Chinese literature, but also one of the most influential fantasy narratives in the world.” ― Booklist “Of all [my mother’s] stories, my favorites by far were about Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. . . . With every comic book and graphic novel that I create, I am trying to recapture the wonder I felt when my mother would regale me with tales of the Monkey King.” ― Gene Luen Yang, from the Foreword “A monument of world literature, Monkey King is also one of the funniest, most subversive satires ever written. There is no trickster quite as tricky, no companion more resourceful or more ridiculously entertaining, no hero more true than the monkey king. If you’ve not read Journey to the West, prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime and know that like Monkey himself, you are about to be transformed. No book can truly capture the stupendous, absurd glory of life, but Monkey King comes pretty damn close. Even if you have read Monkey King, Julia Lovell’s magnificent new translation becomes its own cloud somersault, its own gold-hooped staff.” ― Junot Díaz “A new translation of Monkey King is a cause for joy! Imaginative and mischievous, exhilarating and timeless, this sixteenth-century superhero saga is a delight to readers of all ages.” ― Yiyun Li “An exhilarating new translation of my favorite of all the classic Chinese novels—a great, wild epic that expands and fires one’s imagination.” ― Ha Jin “Uproarious and action-filled, this highly readable new translation captures the most beloved of Chinese characters in all his impossible charm. Irrepressible and irresistible, Monkey speaks to us across the centuries, and here makes us laugh anew.” ― Gish Jen “ Monkey King is one of the great epics of our world. I spent a good part of my childhood enthralled with the adventures of the OG mischief maker, Sun Wukong . What a delight that this exhilarating translation of the timeless classic will entertain generations to come.” ― Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Legend , The Young Elites , and Skyhunter “A fantastic retelling, easily on par with Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology. Monkey King has never been so much fun; I friggin’ loved it.” ― Peter Clines, New York Times bestselling author of Paradox Bound “Monkey King is one of the most memorable characters in all of Chinese literature, beloved of readers young and old. This is a first-rate translation, fluent and accurate—I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I think it will bring the novel over very successfully to the modern English-reading public, and help to enrich the Western perception of the Chinese cultural universe at a most important time in our world’s history.” ― John Minford, award-winning translator of The Art of War, Tao Te Ching, and I Ching “The Monkey King, one of Chinese literature’s great characters, should add many new disciples to his existing fans through this compelling new version of his adventures. Julia Lovell here conveys a vibrant sense of the richness―and also the sheer fun―of this Ming dynasty text, a classic of world fiction from one of its first great ages.” ― Craig Clunas, University of Oxford

Purdue helped buy the plane Amelia Earhart flew when she disappeared. Has it been found?

Amelia Earhart set flying records , wrote books, advocated for women's rights and, at the height of her fame, was a Boilermaker — she served as a career counselor and lecturer at Purdue Universit y.

Now an exploration company based in South Carolina might be closer to solving one of the 20th century's most enduring mysteries: whatever happened to Earhart?

This week, Deep Sea Vision announced it had captured sonar images in the Pacific Ocean that "appears to be Earhart's Lockheed 10-E Electra" aircraft, a plane Purdue helped purchase with a fund established specifically for the famous aviator.

Earhart, along with navigator Fred Noonan, disappeared in 1937 on the last leg of her flight along the world's equator, a feat that would've made her the first person to complete such a journey. Researchers believe the pair crashed somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.

Expeditions to find wreckage of the plane as well as human remains have persisted in the 86 years since she vanished. Here's what we know about the most recent news concerning Earhart's lost aircraft and her ties to Indiana.

Was Amelia Earhart's plane found?

Possibly. The company hunting for Earhart's airplane announced on social media its 16-person crew "scanned more than 5,200 square miles of ocean floor" with the Kongsberg Discovery HUGIN 6000, "the most advanced unmanned underwater drone, before finding what could be the legendary American aviator’s Lockheed 10-E Electra."

The state-of-the-art drone "captured a fuzzy sonar image of an object the size and shape of an airplane resting some 5,000 meters underwater within 100 miles of Howland Island," the location where Earhart was headed to refuel on July 2, 1937, when she went missing.

Tony Romeo , Deep Sea Vision's chief executive officer, is "optimistic" that the objects discovered are from Earhart's Lockheed 10-E Electra, he told  The Post and Courier  but stopped short of saying that his team definitely found her.

More evidence will need to be collected, and that could take time, because the company discovered the image in the drone's data about 90 days into the trip and were unable to turn back to investigate further.

Deep Sea Vision will launch another expedition later in 2024

The company is planning to launch another expedition this year, with a camera, to search for more evidence, such as the airplane’s tail number: NR16020, according to The Post and Courier.

“This is maybe the most exciting thing I’ll ever do in my life,” Romeo  told the Wall Street Journal . “I feel like a 10-year-old going on a treasure hunt.”

Who was Amelia Earhart?

Earhart was an American aviator and the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, as well as the first to fly solo from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland. She also set several speed and altitude records . Born in Kansas on July 24, 1897, Earhart served as a nurse's aid for the Red Cross in Canada during World War I where she spent time watching pilots train. She began taking flying lessons in 1921 at age 24 and purchased an airplane soon afterwards.

Why was Amelia Earhart famous?

Of her many accomplishments, in May 1932, Earhart navigated her Lockheed Vega from Newfoundland to Ireland in 14 hours, 56 minutes to become the first woman to make a solo transatlantic flight. She later became president of the Ninety-Nines , an organization she helped establish to support the advancement of other female pilots.

“Aviation, this young modern giant, exemplifies the possible relationship of women and the creations of science,” Earhart  said of her travels . 

Defying traditional gender roles, Earhart dared to be different in a world dominated by men. She was 39 years old when she went missing somewhere over the South Pacific, and was declared legally dead after an exhaustive but fruitless search. Numerous theories about her disappearance have included her crash landing not in the ocean, but on a remote, uninhabited atoll .

What are Amelia Earhart's ties to Indiana?

In the final two years before Earhart vanished, she served as a " celebrity-in-residence " at the West Lafayette campus of Purdue University , where women were allowed to enroll in STEM classes. Earhart, despite her fame, ate with the students and lived in the women's dorm at Duhme Hall , according to historian John Norberg.

“She has said she was the first woman in the country to hold the position of career counselor for women at a university,” Norberg wrote on Purdue's website. Earhart gave lectures, conducted conferences and served as an adviser to the university's department of aeronautics.

Earhart encouraged Hoosier women to think 'outside the box'

According to Purdue, Earhart utilized a scientific approach to career counseling. She wrote a questionnaire , asking women to reflect on what work they wanted to pursue in and out of the home.

“She encouraged women to think about the kinds of jobs they were actually interested in, not just what they ‘should’ do,” said Katey Watson, the France A. Córdova Archivist in Purdue University Archives and Special Collections, on Purdue's website. "She wanted them to think outside the box when it came to their careers.”

Earhart made history at the Indy 500

Earhart had many other 'firsts' in Indiana.

The same year she joined the Purdue faculty in 1935, Earhart arrived at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. She was the first woman to receive an official position during the Indy500 , writes Norberg. There she served as the first woman referee and demonstrated a parachute training device ahead of the race.

Purdue University helped fund Earhart's dream of flying around the equator

Earhart's goal of being the first person to fly around the world at the equator, setting a record for the furthest-distance flight, was funded in part by Purdue.

The Purdue Research Foundation established a fund supporting Earhart's trip and research plans of studying how long-distance flying affected pilots. In 1936, according to Purdue, Earhart used $40,000 from the fund to acquire her Lockheed Electra 10 airplane. Called the "Flying Laboratory," it was specifically outfitted for long-distance flights.

The aircraft's new technological advancements included radio-telephone systems, newer navigational equipment and mechanisms that de-iced plane wings, according to Purdue.

Had Earhart completed her 1937 journey, the plane would have been returned to the university for future scientific research. Its precise whereabouts, like Earhart herself, remain a mystery — one that researchers might be closer to solving later this year.
