""The Journey to the West" tells the story of monk Xuanzang's 17-year journey from Tang China to India in the seventh century to secure Buddhisttexts for translation. Anthony C. Yu, Professor Emeritus of Humanities at the University of Chicago, who produced a massive, wonderful four-volume translation of the work in the 1970s and 1980s, has now written a single-volume, concise version of theepic. Blending cosmology, scripture, adventure, rivers 800miles wide, and travelogue, this elegant volume retains a mythic quality and is full of musical language and thepomp of classical Chinese literature."
