  • Who is Sun Wukong? The image of the Monkey King in journey to the west
  • The transmutable Monkey : between theater and fiction in traditional China
  • From trickster to hero : national mythmaking in wartime and Maoist China
  • From fighter to lover : the postsocialist hero in the PRC and Hong Kong
  • Chronotope and orientalism: time travel between China and America
  • Of Monkey, human, and God: the performance of Asian American identity.
Able to shape-shift and ride the clouds, wielding a magic cudgel and playing tricks, Sun Wukong (aka Monkey or the Monkey King) first attained superstar status as the protagonist of the sixteenth-century novel Journey to the West (Xiyou ji) and lives on in literature and popular culture internationally. In this far-ranging study Hongmei Sun discusses the thousand-year evolution of this figure in imperial China and multimedia adaptations in Republican, Maoist, and post-socialist China and the United States, including the film Princess Iron Fan (1941), Maoist revolutionary operas, online creative writings influenced by Hong Kong film A Chinese Odyssey (1995), and Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel American Born Chinese. At the intersection of Chinese studies, Asian American studies, film studies, and translation and adaptation studies, Transforming Monkey provides a renewed understanding of the Monkey King character as a rebel and trickster, and demonstrates his impact on the Chinese self-conception of national identity as he travels through time and across borders.

  • Foreword / by Victor H. Mair
  • Introduction
  • Baojuan about Mulian and performance literature
  • The Mulian story in Chinese literature
  • An early example in baojuan
  • Sectarian examples in Dizang baojuan and baojuan of benefiting living beings
  • Beliefs and practices in sectarian baojuan
  • Late examples in baojuan of three rebirths and precious account of Mulian
  • The religious and performative context of late baojuan about Mulian
  • Conclusion.
The story of Mulian rescuing his mother's soul from hell has evolved as a narrative over several centuries in China, especially in the baojuan (precious scrolls) genre. This genre, a prosimetric narrative in vernacular language, first appeared around the fourteenth century and endures as a living tradition. In exploring the evolution of the Mulian story, Rostislav Berezkin illuminates changes in the literary and religious characteristics of the genre. He also examines material from other forms of Chinese literature and from modern performances of baojuan, tracing their transformation from tools of Buddhist proselytizing to sectarian propaganda to folk ritualized storytelling. Ultimately, he reveals the special features of baojuan as a type of performance literature that had its foundations in multiple literary traditions.

  • Beginning to read : some methods and background
  • Reading medically : novel illnesses, novel cures
  • Vernacular curiosities : medical entertainments and memory
  • Diseases of sex : medical and literary views of contagion and retribution
  • Diseases of Qing : medical and literary views of depletion
  • Contagious texts : inherited maladies and the invention of tuberculosis
  • Chinese character glossary.
By examining the dynamic interplay between discourses of fiction and medicine, Novel Medicine demonstrates how fiction incorporated, created, and disseminated medical knowledge in China, beginning in the sixteenth century. Critical readings of fictional and medical texts provide a counterpoint to prevailing narratives that focus only on the "literati" aspects of the novel, showing that these texts were not merely read, but were used by a wide variety of readers for a range of purposes. The intersection of knowledge-fictional and real, elite and vernacular-illuminates the history of reading and daily life and challenges us to rethink the nature of Chinese literature.
