    This classic combination of picaresque novel and folk epic mixes satire, allegory, and history into a rollicking tale. It is the story of the roguish Monkey and his encounters with major and minor spirits, gods, demigods, demons, ogres, monsters, and fairies. Arthur Waley's translation is the first accountable English version, making available to the Western reader a faithful reproduction of the spirit and meaning of the original. 306p.
