西遊記 Xī yóu jì Summary È 102 Uno dei uattro grandi romanzi classici cinesi Lo scimmiotto fu scritto dal letterato Wu Ch’êng ên nel secolo sedicesimo ma il materiale della storia è un immenso ciclo di leggende che si era accumulato per centinaia di anni intorno al «viaggio verso l’Occidente» – cioè verso l’India – del monaco Hsüan Tsang poi detto Tripitaka per raccogliervi scritture sacre buddiste e introdurle in Cina La vicenda comincia con la nascita di una scimmia da un uovo di pietra è lo Scimmiotto che presto sarà eletto Re delle Scimmie Essere prodigioso e beffardo dalla inesauribile vitalità Scimmiotto adopera astuzie e artifici magici per diventare immortale e poi per portare lo scompiglio e la gue.

西遊記 Xī yóu jì Summary È 102 O una satira sociale e vi scoprirà un immenso repertorio di pratiche e tradizioni religiose Il cielo e i suoi abitanti sembrano ui essere un travestimento della terra e degli uomini la terra una continuazione del cielo sfrontatezza e devozione familiarità con la natura e i suoi prodigi sapienza psicologica diffusa ilarità convivono tranuillamente in uesto mondo fondato sulla magia in ueste vicende che sembrano fatte per essere raccontate a dei bambini e insieme sono cariche di sottintesi sicché giustamente ebbe a dire di uesto romanzo il suo congeniale traduttore il grande sinologo Arthur Waley « Lo Scimmiotto è unico nel suo complesso di bellezza e assurdità di profondità e insensatezza?. The last thing I d expect a hundreds of years old slice of classic Chinese literature to be is fun but that s exactly what MONKEY is It s great fun It s a delight to read a thoroughly modern action adventure storyline that embodies the classic journey narrative and packs it to the brim with all manner of outlandish incident and constant humourThe only difficulty with MONKEY comes from trying to remember all of the various deities and sub sections that Heaven is made up of Almost every character in the story is divine in some way and that s overwhelming at first but the you read the it all makes sense Monkey himself is a great protagonist he starts off as completely annoying but the reader gradually warms to him as the narrative progresses Monkey never changes but the reader gets to know and like him instead The rest of the characters Tripitaka Pigsy and Sandy are built to entertainArthur Waley s translation is a joy to read and probably the most readable version of a 16th century story that you ll ever find It s also surprisingly modern in places complete with back stabbing betrayal and low brow humour The story is tumultuous and fantastic and yes epic in the true sense of the word the only problem is that this is an abridged version of a much much longer original and thus it makes you long to read the full length version

西遊記 Xī yóu jì Summary È 102 Rra nel cosmo subissando i celesti con le sue sempre eccessive trovate – ed è una delizia seguire il turbamento provocato nei cieli cinesi affollatissimi di esseri divini da uesto indiavolato trickster Infine nella seconda parte Scimmiotto assieme a due altri compagni – Porcellino e Sabbioso che simboleggiano due potenze dell’essere umano – si riscatterà dalle sue malefatte aiutando Tripitaka nel suo arduo viaggio Tutto il libro è un moto inarrestabile di fatti e sorprese un grande romanzo di avventure che ne contiene in sé tanti altri Aprendosi la strada nella selva di ueste vicende il lettore si renderà conto a poco a poco che Lo Scimmiotto è anche un’allegoria un viaggio mistic. Perhaps because I have been reading too many political books inevitably dreary I found Monkey to be almost electrifyingly delightful from the beginning to the very end When I bought the book used on a whim I knew virtually nothing about it other than it was a famous Chinese classic Thus I vaguely expected something rather dry and edifying so I was delighted was instead I found the inspiration for one of my great childhood loves Dragon Ball Indeed while admittedly lacking in animation Monkey is just as silly and wonderful as Goku s exploits with the added benefit of giving you bragging rights for reading itWell perhaps I should not feel too proud as Monkey is an abridgement of a much larger work Journey to the West which is than six times longer But as the original book is episodic consisting of misadventure after misadventure on the way to India the reading experience of this shorter version is seamless as it merely consists of fewer episodesAuthorship of this book is normally attributed Wu Cheng en who seems a rather tepid character in comparison to his book But Wu or whoever the author was had ample material to work with By the time that Journey to the West was written there was already a very old oral tradition concerning the 7th century Buddhist pilgrim Xuanzang called Tripitaka in this version and his many trials on the way to India The author s accomplishment consists in arranging these many stories into a coherent whole and telling them in lively collouial prose The closest European counterpart I can think of is Gargantua and Pantagruel by Rabelais which was written at very close to the same time Both books are absurd and strikingly irreverent and filled with gusto and a zest for life But of course the parallel is not exact While both works parody conventional politics and religion Rabelais s work is thoroughly earthy while Wu s does have higher spiritual resonances especially as the book progresses Indeed I admit I felt slightly holy myself by the time I put it down as I read it during my own little pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago The book was a perfect companion
